    What to do next



    After giving her a good blast today, the little rattle i had at a certain rev became more obvious, the oil temp shot up and the pressure dropped.

    I havnt stuck the rod out the side,(only just) but its really not good.
    She runs(just) but has a death knock now and obviously doesnt start well

    I do not know what to do, do i break her, sell her as is, fix her with a used engine or build a new engine?

    Good thing maybe to do is write out a list of all the parts you have and what you may get for them.
    And do the same to get it finished how you want it and fixes then choose also calculating in the cost of another car.
    I know i would buy quite a bit from your car

    Well at the moment, without looking, its gonna be a regrind, rods,shells deffo rings maybe pistons, then if i do pistons do i rebore. I could do with what used to be called a short block, just whack a new oil pump in it and whack my head on

    gggrrrrrr She was going really well just before too

    Nightmare fella, see ed if he has spares lying around, I've just priced new pistons for mine this week looking at around 500 - 600 for forged jobbies, you could go the S3 route for rods and pistons.

    what clutch you fitting??

    Defo not really worth getting a second hand one when you can get that at that price.

    I know, high ish mileage. Thats why we decieded to put mine back together it will more or less be a 2wd 1.8 S4 anyway. And everything will be new. And by then i should have my new "outlaw" SP1 turbo from Sean to play with.

    I may try a Custom Code map tho,Just in case will i be ablt to tell if detonation caused my blow up? Ie running lean etc etc

    if detonation was cause i think you would have damaged valves or pistons, eg pitting or just chunks missing.

    Could i whack an APU engine in here with my injectors/sensors etc. I am sure the engine block is basicly the same its just the head is a small port, but that wont make a huge difference as its only for BT where that will restrict isnt it?

    i put an APU in mine for a while, it will be fine, just a couple of the sensors were different, but just use the ones off your AEB. Yes it has the small ports, but just use your old head i guess? or put it on later?

    Cheers, can you remember which sensors? Did you run the inlet manifold etc from the APU?

    i ran the aeb inlet manifold as my APU was a DBW so didn't have the mounting bracket for the throttle cable setup.

    the water temp sensor at the rear had different connector, but AEB one will fit.

    i think the oil cooler may have had different sensors can't remember, i know that with my engine and the APU i had everything i needed.

    where are you getting the APU from by chance?

    also i think mine was out of a passat hence might be why sensors were different, not sure though.

    I ripped the head off today as i was bored and noticed a strange thing on cylinder 4. I realise there is coke on there but how then can i have "clean" bits? Is that from detonation as i thought that would be more centeral to the piston?

    I understand the crank is knackered but that can't have caused this


    On a side note anyone want a good conditioned AEB head?

    keep the AEB head for yourself as they are desirable.

    i am not an expert but i think that looks ok to me. i can only think that myabe your injector spray pattern maybe better causing better atomisation, different cylinder temperatures, maybe different airflow into that cylinder caused by intake chamber/inlet manifold, different power coming from coil pack.

    so many variables.

    Its just the clean bits that worry me,lol
    Ahh well too late on the head i have had to sell it to fund the clutch, but i have done lots of reading etc and the concensus is that unless i am running a BAT the large ports will not make any difference. In fact the may hinder swirl thru the ports into the cylinder. Make sense ??

    yeah, sort of dose to me, my head wasn't polished that much because it is better to have slightly less smooth head on a turbo i was told, or just wasn't worth the extra effort. not an expert, but kinda made sense.

    stick at it, it will all be good in the end........well that's what i keep telling myself :-)
