S3 ENGINE REBUILD!!
I'm after some advise and suggestions!
I have a 02 plate s3. It's decided to give up with the bottom end.
I'm trying to find out what to buy and where from, me and my mate will be rebuilding most of the engine. The car already has a front mount, dahlback manifold, porsche brakes, stainless exhaust, h+r coilovers and arb's.
I've been thinking about the gt2871 but have not found this offered as a kit i'm not sure whether to go bigger? i know i'll be upgrading the clutch, pistons,con rods,injectors etc but i really some advise on who to speak too. I'm determined to get as close to 400 bhp as i can,
i'll look forward to your suggestions.
92.8mm forged crank from any VAG block, plenty in the UK
83mm JE pistons, Scat rods (US sourced,,,cheaper)
ARP main and head bolts.
good for 600 if you want
Have a word with JBS - they have a 440bhp Octavia so no doubt they will have had to change the internals
