I have a short engine out of my 03 S3. It was removed after the head gasket needed replacing three times. The first time the gasket went, the head was tested and all valves were re sealed and re seated. The replacement gasket went after 6 months so it was replaced thinking it was a faulty gasket. 2 months later it went again, this is when we gave up and replaced the engine. This engine has forged internals from new as they are standard in a BAM engine and as far as we know a decent head, we are assuming the block is cracked but not 100% sure. No's 1 and 2 cyclinders were filling with water when stood but if you cracked the header after a drive they would fill. Im open to offers and may split the engine if anywould would like certain parts. But the engine as it stands would need stripping to find the fault before being re fitted.
Were looking at £250 + delivery. Drop me a message if interested.
