    S3 engine replacement

    My s3 has had a suspected cam chain failure.it was ment to get towed to the garage today but its not been possible so hoping it will be tomorrow to get the damage assessed.

    ive came across this and was wondering if my engine to far gone I could possible replace it with this

    VW 500bhp 1.8 20v turbo engine , Audi s3 , Seat | eBay

    I was wondering what else I would need other than downpipe intake pipe and a map??

    im just trying to see what options I have then decide what I'm going to do but I'm wanting to keep the car as its just had all new suspension and was feeling great to drive before it went tits up

    From the pics its got an ebay turbo (GT3076r my arse!), non drilled rods and the pistons look quite low compression... the underslung manifold may not be suitable for a quattro as its very tight in there... with the size of the compressor housing its looks like a struggle to fit... the turbo orientation is different to the normal setup which looks more suited to LHD setups or early VAGs

    You would need more than a DP and map... injectors, larger MAF, big intercooler etc... plus custom water and oil lines as these aren't included by the looks and no doubt if they were then they'd be no good for a quatty...

    Personally I'd avoid... not worth the money IMO...

    Some... mines a longitudal mani... it sits the turbo quite low and more forward towards the cam belt than a transverse mani (collector is between cyl 1 & 2 on inline, 2 & 4 on a transverse)... considering the lack of space it can make things quite interesting fitment wise (I should know)... for what its worth I have spoken to Arnold at pag parts who suggests his v-band mani isn't really suitable for rhd quattros either...

    Which seems a little backward when longitudinal BT projects have trouble with tip fitment and what not.
    Everything transverse is so US biased.
