Hmmmmmm...... I think I can hear that too......
only a few slots left so get signed up asap if you wanna join, also think we got a small convoy going on from our area too, check out my thread in uk show section :icon_thumright:
Revival of an old thread here - but thought I'd fire the old girl up for an update.
10,000 miles down now after the end of the rebuild and we're still running sweet which is good news! :thumbsup:
Engine is still good, turns out that the AGU lump is more hardy than given due credit for.
10k since jan?! mofo
the agu engine is a belter for mods i think it had forged internals as standard...
Yeah, it's cost me a little in fuel....
I do a lot of work mileage sadly. We have smart cars as pool cars which we can use, but to be fair, I'd rather drive the S3 qat my own expense - as I am sure you can understand....
Ummmm, nope. It has forged pistons, and a forged crank like most of the 1.8T varients. However it's got the same old crappy con rods.
The reason I say that it's hardier than expected is because is has less strenghtening (webbing) inside the block itself when compared to one of the S3 varient engines (APY, AMK, BAM). This concerned me a little, as I do drive the thing hard!
i thought i piled on the mileage fast. mk3 golf has been doing 25k a year since i got it
good skill tho
