    On the 1.8T, usually oil starvation kills the head RIGHT QUICK LIKE (sometimes along with turbo), but the bottom end is generally ok to reuse.

    You would determine this by inspecting the cam caps for wear. Seems to be the front ones take the worst beating, so prolly start there. If any of the caps are scored, you need an entire cylinder head. If the damage is really minor, you can polish it out with some emery cloth and soldier on.

    Like Walky said, oil starvation is BAD. Tear it down and inspect, that'll be your only true indicator! I've got my fingers crossed for you!

    I also have an AEB head if you need one lol

    Good deal!

    Not sure on the price of the kit you're referring to, but I used the urotuning.com rebuild kit on my engine - http://www.urotuning.com/Engine-Rebu..._1.8t_late.htm - just so you have some more options!

    15k miles thus far on an HX35 @ 44psi, I give it a thumbs up!

    I'd tear it down and inspect your situation first, it would suck to order parts you won't need or use. Looks like a thorough kit.

    Do any of y'all know where I can find the steps to put the b5 into service position and the steps to remove the motor?

    Step 1: Big Pants on.

    Step 2: Cowboy up.

    If you get the first 2 steps right, the rest just figures itself out.

    Kidding aside, you should look at timing belt DIY guides for the front end disassembly. I didn't see a 1.8T motor pull guide, but there's like 1,000 of them for the B5 S4 (LOL), so that may help a little.

    What's the quality on those DNJ parts?. In my situation, I pieced together the kit with higher quality parts for probably less.
