    Car is gonna be good Had a quick browse through that big turbo thread and didn't spot any alarm bells. Turbo appeared to be balanced etc and lasted several thousand miles. Couldn't find any figures however.

    Will be watching this very closely.

    You should be having some good fun with this car. I'll be interested in how the turbo in perticular holds up to the punishment. If you're after a catch tank I have a forge one going cheap.

    Just read through from start to finish looking good so far should be interesting to see how the chinese parts last, and there really wasn't any need for 3 pages of 312mm brake argueing was there pppfffttt.

    I was going to say I have a k03s turbo which is coming off with all k03s parts to suit if you wanted to hybrid it or something.

    Pretty sure I never picked up that box of 312 parts, if I did I still have it somewhere which is a full front set up and discs.
    B5 Rs4 front brakes, complete set, not that they'll fit easily.
    I also have a pair of Corbeau bucket seats knocking about with crappy subframes that you can have on the cheap bud

    Ho ho ho, Merry Monday.

    Lots happened over the weekend - including me slicing a large gash in my thumb. Bloody 1.8T engines.

    Anyway...



    Hello K03-011. Awwwww.

    Got to work on Saturday morning with the engine.



    Rocker cover off immediately led to the discovery of the rattling noise the engine had... Not oil pressure, but a shagged cam chain tensioner. And to be fair, it is completely demolished...



    You may notice that in the above picture - there is the chain tensioner. It also happens to be missing the plastic chain guide that lives on the top - shown in the image below (not my image):



    So, that was the rattling noise accounted for. What we also found scattered all about the place were the remnants of the plastic guide. Quite a few bits dotted around the head, largely melted. Also few bits stuck in the oil galleries when the head came off.

    However most of the plastic appears to have ended up in the usual place.... Good old predictable 20Vs.



    New pickup pipe for me then. Oil pump is fine however, and also looks very new, which is a bonus. One less thing to buy.

    Back to the engine then... Once the sump was off I could immediately see it is a 20mm block. Bonus. Easy to tell as the rods have securing 14mm nuts as opposed to the bolts that the 19mm rods have.

    Block is in REALLY good condition - bit minging, but that's to be expected. Bores have no lip on them at all. Adding to that, they have clearly been recently honed (when the new engine was fitted it would seem). Piston rings also look very new as well which pleases me. Again, one less thing to buy and also explains the honing.

    Crank in good condition, acceptable wear on the big end bearings so the crank will just be reused. The deck will need a good clean, as will all the oil galleries due to plastic - other than that, spot on. A bit of work and this will be a perfect block for rebuild.

    Few pics below:







    The picture above does show the slight but not unexpected disappointment with the head - its small port. It's on ebay already being sold as is, get rid of it and source an AGU/AEB one.

    Pistons are dirty, but as said before, rings look good and the ring lands are pretty clean. No obvious impact marks, but that said it's difficult to tell until they've been cleaned up - time will tell and I have been kindly offered a set of perfect 20mm pistons if they are a problem.

    So - the engine is now apart completely. The block is empty, the turbo is off.

    Just put an offer in on some rods from China, and also have all the other rebuild parts in my ebay basket - so just waiting on a counter offer.

    Other things now done - the manifold flanges are now filed and flat, and should fit nicely to a 1.8T head. Needed some work to get the flanges serviceable, but not the end of the world.

    So - now waiting for parts, and need to prep everything else ready for engine rebuild.... Yay

    I have a brand new AEB cylinder head for sale, however its completely bare.

    I bought it cheap and used some parts off it, main reason being it has a scratch on one of the cam caps. I suspect the scratch will buff/polish out but i've never looked at it or attempted to rectify as it served its purpose.

    It does ofcourse have brand new valve guides etc which should save you some money. You'd just need to swap the valves, lifters and cams over from your existing head and build it all up.

    I was hoping for about £50 for it, drop me a PM if your interested and i'll sort out some pics.

    Thanks mate, but think I have sorted an AGU head for £110 delivered and it's complete so no aggro.

    Thanks for the offer though.

    Did you try CTS turbos in the states for IE rods? They do good deals. Or VW Vortex? There's so many cheap bits floating about...

    Agreed. However this will also facilitate an interesting test on the RD/Non RD argument. lol

    So, a large port head is turning out to be harder to find than I thought. Normally there are quite a few on the bay - however am really struggling to get hold of one.

    May just buy an entire engine for £250 shipped and use the head and have a spare block. Expensive, but useful.

    Head arrived today, many thanks Dave. :-).

    Shown here, just opened the box quickly to have a lookie...



    I shall send it off for a quick skim I think before fitting, and then whop, on it goes.

    Just checked on the status of my rods. After a trek across China to Hong Kong, they appear to now be en route to the UK via plane.

    These rods are going to do more miles getting here than miles in the engine!

    Still waiting on just about everything else.
