So I’ve just gone and made another impulsive purchase and I can’t really say I’m upset about it. I found an ad for a b8.5 rs5 engine that’s been disassembled. Engine has 55k km on it but needs a crankshaft, front and rear seal, 2 connecting rods, bearings and head gaskets.
The engine’s being delivered on Saturday morning and I’ll be able to access the condition of everything first hand. I have 0 experience doing this but think it’ll make a fun winter project. I’m open to ideas, suggestions and whatever else you guys think of.
Also curious to hear what you guys think an engine like this is worth.
