I bought a 2001 1.8t quattro with 72k that had a oil starved motor, I acquired a free wrecked 99 1.8t beetle, which i used the crank and pistons out of, then chris164935 hooked me up with a set of scat rods, a few days later I picked up a AWM/AEB combo motor my friend pulled to do a 40v swap into his b5.

So my motor combo is a AWM block, APH crank and pistons, scat rods, AEB head, 9A tensioner and a 06f front main seal plate. I will add to the build as more of my parts come in, the plan is to make 400ish to the crank.

Nicely done. Now when you sell the car, whomever goes to do the next t-belt job will have no idea why their day just got wrecked, lol.

Thanks! It will stay with me for a few years, I've been after a quattro manual b5 for a while.

with no hydraulic or spring type tensioner, will you periodically re-tension the timing belt?

Using a special tool, you pre-load the tensioner and then tighten the nut. After that, no re-tensioning is really needed. I have been running mine for 70k-80k miles without having to re-tension it at all.

The old 16v 9a ran this tensioner

I hope your not using the stock 9a stud with that.. looks somewhat short to me

yeah, I know how it works and such, I'm just figuring with the power levels you're trying to attain, that tensioner will need to be adjusted once you stretch the belt out. That tensioner was not designed to work on an engine with a huge torque number.

I run one with my 3076r no problems with it. Adjusted initially and checked it periodically over the first 1k miles only needed to adjust once

Yes I know the bolts for the throttle body are not tightened down.

ko3 :( but that's just so I can park my truck until I have the gt28 sent out, I am starting on the turbo manifold next week but that is only if I get chris's build caught up, I really want to see his car finished soon...!!!

I was going to say, if it was a k03, i would have bought it off you.
