Integrated Engineering Valve Guide | 2015+ VW MK7 GTI (IEVTVN1)
IE Valve Guide
IE Performance valve guides are sold individually. VW/Audi 2.0T EA888 Gen 3 TSI engines require 16 valve guides total, 8 exhaust and 8 intake for a complete valve guide replacement job. All IE valve guides are sold with an undersized inside diameter.
This allows the engine builder to ream the guides after installation and set the stem-to-guide clearances exactly where they need to be, since different valve materials require different clearances. This feature eliminates any guesswork associated with replacing the guides. To make installation simple, we machine a small centering lip on the tip of each valve guide, which allows them to press into the head straight and consistently.
Valve guides are small cylindrical bushings that press into a cylinder head, giving valves a place to reciprocate with minimal friction and wear. They facilitate valve movement and keep them perfectly centered on the valve seats. Lastly, they allow heat to transfer from the combustion chamber into the cylinder head, which is then cooled by engine coolant.
