    Jordan's Gsi rebuild!!! Blown up pictures inside

    A member on here JordanC contacted me recently and asked if I could supply and fit a new engine so a deal was done and he dropped the car off a week early so I could jump onto it between times and heres what I found!!!

    Spent half an hour stripping off the VXR turbo to check see if it was useable etc..



    Few hours later LET out



    Looking around the engine didnt show up any holes in the block but it did show some bent valves...



    Then off with the head to find this interesting sight...






    Nicely done . Crap camera phone pictures but will keep this updated....
