    Thread: FEELER: 1.8T AWP Engine For Sale, Stock or Built???

    1. 01-27-2010 07:16 PM #1
      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.

      Thanks, RAY

      Any Comments??? I'm Just looking for feed back

      Is it worth building the motor a built bottom end, or just rebuild it stock and then selling it?

      I know what it costs to build these motors, are the prices i have listed fair, low, high? The motor is just sitting in my shop, and I'm trying to find out what is the best option for moving it. I don't have any particular need for it right now.

      thanks

      How does anyone know if a build is good..? Its a risk people run, even if they build it themselves.

      I have built several 1.8T motors in the past, including head work. I have also built over 20+ engines in the last 4 years for different projects i have.

      '02 GTI 1.8T AWP stock, AWP w/AEB head and bottom end.
      '02 Jeep 4.0L
      Cummins 5.9 TD
      '99 Toyota 2RZ 2.4L
      '00 Toyota 3RZ (currently running Compound Turbo set up, tO4E & GT45)
      '91 Saturn 1.9L, Stock, mild build, built bottom end w/ Toyota SC14 supercharger.

      I would include a build sheet with all the internal specs and tolerances. I stand behind my word! I have references that I can offer.

      I am a Metal fabricator and Automotive Technician.

      I can offer picture of previous builds and projects for entertainment
