I have a AWP 1.8T out of a Jetta. It has bearing wear in the bottom end and knocks slightly. I have built several 1.8T's in the past (stock-extreme), and was wanting to see what the demand was for: AWP engine rebuilt completely stock, or rebuilt with Forged SCAT rods w/ AEB pistons, or rebuilt with Forged SCAT Rods and Wiesco/SuperTech Forged Pistons.
I would go through the engine and check all tolerances.
It would be sold as a complete long block. (if I rebuild it stock, it will be sold with the K03 Turbo installed, it currently has one on it right now)
I'm guessing I would sell it for as follows:
How it sits right now: $750
Stock Rebould w/ Turbo: $1800
Rebuild w/ SCAT rods & AEB Pistons: $2300
Rebuild with SCAT Rods and Aftermarket Pistons: $2650
If you are seriously interested in it let me know. Make Offers, this is just a feeler to see what would be the best route to go with this motor.
