    APY bearings same as AYP

    Hi im planning on rebuilding my engine in the new year i have a 1999 Audi S3 APY, I want to replace the following parts......

    Rods (rifle drilled)

    Rod Bearings

    PistonRings

    Cambelt kit & Water pump

    Head Gasket kit

    Head looked at..

    Head Bolts

    Oil pump

    Oil pickup

    Obvious gaskets (that are needed)

    BBT Hybrid k04

    New Exhaust Mani (hopefully Badger one)

    550cc Injectors

    Relentless 3inch DP

    WMI (of some sort)


    Now my main question is I have a AYP bottom end which has had new bearings and piston rings fitted, It was started and run for around 2 miles.
    Would the bearings and Piston rings out of the AYP engine fit my current APY engine as there basically brand new.
    Or am i being stupid and should just buy new again????

    Thanks

    same units, but depends on wear on your new block. Why not install the already done AYP bock ?

    I'd fit new ones mate. Pistons might be ok just check there's no damage. But bearings should always be new and never transferred IMO. The wear may be different and you never know, could lead to disaster!

    So the rings and bearings from the AYP which have only had around 15-20 mins of running time (so i should tink not run in)are no good to use again????

    I wouldn't say that they are not good, you can use them again, but new ones would always be better.
