Audi S3 Cracked Head - Help Needed!!
Vehicle Spec: Audi 02 S3 210 AMK
Hi all I am posting on behalf of a friend, hoping to gather some useful info & contacts, and try to resolve the matter to get him back on the road to enjoy for the summer.
He has been told that the head is cracked and its to be replaced.
Now my question is: Is he to go for a reconditioned head or buy all new?
He found a brand new head with valves but without camshafts/hydros/springs in germany for around €900 and he got a quote from backdraftmotorsports who can supply a new head with valves and camshafts for £1900+vat or reconditioned for £950+vat.
He has been in two minds weather to upgrade the BHP, (350/400BHP) if this is worthwhile doing whilst having such work done. However he is slightly concerned about daily drivability?
Recommendation of whats the best route to go and experience anyone may have had in this area, along with any useful contacts for parts cheap parts new/ used?
All comment are welcome. Thanks in advance. :icon_thumright:
