Bought another car today, setting the 1.8t counter on 3  Cheesy
Its a 2001 AUM, with a blown turbo. A bit like a real 007 gadget with smoke screen on demand (boost). My wife will be driving it, so I will just install an old turbo that I have left from the gt2860r TT. More downtime for the turbo bus yeah  Grin

After about 340.000km, the engine finally gave.
I lost all compression on cilinder 1, I checked the valves with a scope but cant really determine if they are bent too bad. I still drive the car a few times a week untill she blows up or untill my new engine is finished, what ever comes first. It still wants to rev to 6800rpm and I can still drive over 150km/h, but idle sounds like a classic VW engine.. good for me it is in an old vw :-)
Compression results of all cylinders: 1.5 - 6 - 6 - 7 bar. Amazing it still puts out enough power to drive  Grin
I have cleaned the pistons on my new block and assembled new Götze rings, honed the block, attached rods and new KS sputter bearings.
All valves are cleaned / polished, and I am currently awaiting my piston installation tool and valve lapping stuff. Hope to put the new engine together in the upcoming week or so. Will be fitted with the new hybrid ofcourse, so I should be looking at a nice overall power increase.










The A3 is running great, I am doing boost linearisation runs on it now to finalize the tune. I did a map switching set of stock, power and economical, and I get 15.2km per litre on average now! (130km/h highway and around 80-100km/h on most B roads). So despite good 200hp tune, mostly driving  on 0%wg like a grandma Grin

Head is ready for mild porting, K04 hybrid is up for sale. I decided to sell the manifold and turbo because I want to step up to a true twin scroll gt3071. Its always more fun to build stuff I think, and the turbo is laying around for ages collecting dust. I have had some interest in it, so hopefully I can sell it soon. Price is 1200€ for the manifold + turbo + gaskets and 0.8bar wastegate actuator, if anyone here is interested. Thought that was a decent price for a custom longitudinal kit with tubular.
Anyways, if I get to ordering new stuff I will update this page. Also I have seen photobucket fucked the internet by removing all 3rd party links, so I will try to relocate my albums to somewhere else.

K04 is sold, gt3071 is on the way. I will put on a billet wheel and twin scroll housing later, first I need to finish the engine and build a manifold. I still need valvesprings, thinking to go for the Rosten kit.
Looking forward to driving it with power again, currently the old engine is still working and going strong on 3 cilinders every day  Huh Grin full 1 bar boost by 3500 rpm on a k03 yoo.
