    hello,

    In 2015 I bought one of the earlier series of the 8V RS3 and since then I ve driven 300.000km, well 302.103 today.

    the engine is stock and 0 problems , battery is still the original.

    well, my question is, as I want to keep the RS3 it for years but with other purposes in mind, and seeing the great potential of DAZA engines I wanted to know if someone here has done a swap from CZGB to DAZA in a PFL.

    I am not asking if it is a wise way of spending money because after 300.000km the RS3 costs have been nearly 34k€

    another option is to rebuild the engine , but the 1000hp mark is very tempting in a small car like the RS3.

    thanks.

    That’s some serious mileage/kilometres! How do you put so many on?

    I’d love to know how reliable a 1000hp RS3 would be after another 300,000km’s on it.

    I wouldn't worry so much about the engine , more the transmission. To do that kind of mileage must have been doing some serious motorway mileage.
