    hey champs.
    Im jack from china, but im study in Australia.
    I own a 2000 Audi s3 8L, first gen? in silver. rs4 style rims, well i thought its a fake one.
    everything is stock except GIAC stage 1 ECU, Bigger Intercooler( did by first owner).
    The car had driven 234K km ... lol



    well, i just blown my engine last nite. (2000 audi s3 8L AMK)
    3rd gear all the way to 5000RPM, then some thing broke, feels like the transfercase,
    and engine start vibrating.. between 1000 RPM to 2000RPM. and i smell something
    burning. there no engine check light come up, so i pull over, switch off the engine.
    then start again, still vibrating..... coz my home near by, only 3km away, so i just dont
    give a **** drive all the way to home. Jack the car up, go under the engine bay, my mate
    help me start the car, the noise came from gearbox side. there is no white smoke from
    muffer, but the smellllll......... check the oil level holy ****, its near bottom. i just checked
    last week its right level. did some research:

    1. flywheel broke?
    2. engine mount?
    3. transfer case?
    4. coil pack?
    5. one cylinder finished?




    If one cylinder heard or piston gone,
    in my opinion there is no point to rebuilt engine due to cost.
    what im thinking is just swap entire engine and gearbox from 1999 audi tt quattro .

    my question is will it straght fit? coz early mod s3 AMK engine, well the tt is BAM engine.
    all the mounts, looms the same?

    anyone nos? im a noob. lol
