    Hi mate, I suggest you post this in the S3 8L forum section - you'll definitely get some good advice in there. Good luck with it.

    Where abouts are you?

    Well mine went 2 weeks ago and so far the engine and turbo have been replaced, lets hope just the head work is needed in your case ! put it together and turn it over by hand first of course. not sure how easy the rods bend on a petrol a3.
