    I'm looking for info on an engine swap from a B5 S4 (Pre FL - 1998) for a possibly stroked 1.8T, to save further weight in my track car.
    Similar to the 034 TA car, but not to that level of specs/cost.

    Badger 5 have been recommended. Anyone else?
    Any links you guys can forward me for tis would be of help too, for some light reading/research.


    TIA.

    If it was me the only person I would be allowing to touch the engine is Bill Brockbank at Badger 5.

    If/when I get my head rebuilt, it's going there

    Another vote for Bill at Badger 5. Booked in with him this month for a couple of jobs. Apparently his work is always worth the journey.

    In fact, I'm sure someone drove from Eastern Europe to get work done by him this year!

    Yeah it was I think a MK3 Ibiza cupra from Finland for custom mapping and a few other goodies.
