A friend of a friend had his timing belt go on him. He is looking to get a new motor. Where do I begin hunting for a motor? It was a 1.8tqm. It was a 99 (dbc). If I could get a dbw motor what all else would need swapped out? Also, I know Audi has interference engines (bastards) are his valves and pistons def. shot? Any direction would be great.

just curious, how many miles were on the car before the belt broke?

Unless something went horribly wrong all he needs is a new head. He can send the old to me if he wants. I've been wanting one to play with. Time for some experimental porting and polishing?

Just a new head? That's good news. I'll let you know about the old one.

you don't need a new engine. Rebuild the head and it will be fine. However if you can't diy it like most people then you're probably better off getting a new engine with labor and all. you can sell the old stuff for some money still.
*2nd inline for the head if you decide to sell.

. . . Also, I know Audi has interference engines (bastards) are his valves and pistons def. shot? Any direction would be great.

Is this any different then a Honda DOHC engine?
