Hello everyone, my AHW engine is pretty much dead i suspect worn piston rings/pistons probably valve seals and high chance that the block is for scrap, i know these are alloy so cant really be rebuilt, what are my options to put a cast iron block in it? Is it only from the lupo/polo gti which are really hard to find. I know if the block is fine i can change pistons and seals and all the rest but it would come out costing more than a second hand 1.8t to put in there since i will be doind all the work myself. Could i use an iron block from the older polo 6n1 that are SOHC and use only the block and crank/rotating assembly? Have been thinking a lot from an entire engine swap to a better engine but the thing is everything apart from 1.8t is not really worth it because it's going to cost pretty much the same for worse results and 1.8t is a bit of an overkill for me.
