    Don't use an AUM bottom end on your S3... yes it will fit but its weaker... AUM's use 19mm sintered crank rods and tangless bearings... not really suitable for an S3 bottom end tbh...

    You want to look at any of the 210/225 VAG engines (TT, LCR, S3) or an AGU bottom end...

    If its just pistons you need I have some S3 ones I can do you a decent deal on if you drop me a PM
