    Hi, im curious as to weather the Seat AYP engine has the same forged crank and forged mahle pistons that Audi S3 APY engine has?
    Would it just be a straight swap?

    It may have different internals but still the same engine and will swap over

    Even if it has a cast crank it will be still man enough for your power needs

    As Bill said... I have Ibiza pistons in my AMK engine currently but be aware that while the pins are 20mm they are shorter than 210/225 pins...
