TheStamosUnfortunately i don't have a good answer for you but stoked you've got a project vanagon! When i do work on cars i tend to just replace whatever i can reach. Not the thriftiest way to go about it but yeah... Whats your instagram i wanna see your ride

Sounds like you'll need some new pistons
CaseyIf I were you I would try to get the guy from Vanistan on the phone. He does vanagon rebuilds and boring exclusively. I know the demand is ridiculous and he only does like one a month but I bet you could get some really good advice.
