This is now my Golf did look back in June on a lovely hot day.

Then this happened

I landed up managing to Hydraulic the engine going through a large puddle I had to be recovered by a local Farmer then a few days later I got the RAC to recover me & it back to London so I could get it into my mates garage for inspection on the engine dreading the worst.

This is what my mate found wrong with it.

I had managed to bend all four pistons one was like an S shape I had also chipped the block at the bottom when the piston was on the down motion.

So I decided to give the motor to Edd @ www.autops.co.uk what top bloke/firm I can't fault them one bit.

I have just been sent these camera phone pic's from my mate James (Reflex tdi) cheers son shine. They are showing the progress of it all they seem to be making very quick progress on it all for me.

Replaced with a 210/225 engine? K04 turbo?

[EDIT] looking at old photo with bonnet up, seems you already had one, looks like your throttle body is on the right hand side of the intake manifold.

[DOUBLE EDIT] just seen the text under your avatar!!!!!

Scrap the above......nice car [:D]

Yep I managed to source a great deal on a AMK lump which is not being left along by the boys at Autops.

[Edit] Gary, the picture of my Golf with the bonnet open is an AGU lump

Hi Dan. It is looking good. It's going to be one very nice car when it's done. [:p] It looked great in the workshop on the lift, one very clean car.

How deep was the puddle Danny ?  You've got (or had) a carbonio (iirc) and i've got an evo cai which are pretty much the same thing and i'm getting slightly worried about it now that the weather is getting a little wetter and having heard stories like this.. Might buy a shorty intake for the winter I think.

Cheers James I can't wait till its finished. The instal looks very factory by what I can see.

Tylerama it was quite a deep puddle as quite a bit of the road had flooded. At the time I didn't think about the intake, most of the damage was all done by the Carbonio which I will be taking off & selling on now.

Nice to see that APS won the Audi Driver award for best independent Audi specialist (voted for by readers). They collected the award at the Autometrix event at Castle Combe last weekend.

Not bad for a company that only started trading in January 2006 [Y]
