So i bought an s3 2001 210 bhp apy engine after, thought id be brave lol, i was looking for a bad one because i wanted to get the engine built up nice and a big turbo like all you guys do so the was no point buying one that works. So i thought better to spend the money on the tuning bits, iv been reading this forum for a long time and have been driving a diesel sharan for the past 5 years so now its time for some fun,
so dropped it off to my mechanic today who has been maintaining all the vag cars in my family and friends cars, he tunes alot of cars in surrey aswell which i see when i get my car repaired, so he said he will 1st put a used cambelt on it and turn the engine and do a air compression test to see how many valves are bent so he knows where to pay special attention but did say that regardless however many are bent, the exhaust valves and all 20 guides will get replaced because the car has 161k on it, he said he will give me a price on standard parts, uprated paerts in my cylinder head if the head is ok and a price on a bigger cylinder head because i said i want to have more power. So now im waiting for the 1st cardiac arrest.
anyone who has any uprated parts for the whole engine or suspension brakes ect please let me know
il keep uou posted on what the findings are with pics hehehe
