Lol Dave. You should specify mk2 or mk3 but WTF?
Why would you consider that in a VAG?
You are joking right?

Mk3 RS engines are breaking in the UK so yeah, it's eeew to having one IMO. The MK2 is a far better engine......

Don't get me wrong, I think the MK3 is a great car but with serious reliability issues happening, I would be worried owning one.

Thats why a wise man waits for 2nd or 3rd series when the manifacturer irons out major faults.

So back on topic, the only place I know that might have an RS 5 pot not in a car could be RS Shop in Albury.

Gordon bought the firebombed RS and a smashed one. That did break the sump and lose it's oil. Went over a roundabout I think.

What car have you got now Dave? Volvo?

Gotta say, the RS donk is fun in my car. Now that I work in Sydney again, it's learnt to be more aggressive and 2nd gear rips 😝

There's a mondeo for sale cheap with a blown motor. Thought it could be a good donor car.
You're  back in Sydney? Wanna come check it out with me?

Forge an XR engine and block mod. Strong as!

Where is it? Might be the one Pete had considered.

Forging is a waste of time unless you know of a tune for a Mondeo that will see well over 400HP, buy a XR5 engine, block mod it, throw in some Newman cams a K16, water/meth and run Stage IV tune and you might hit 380HP, if your really worried just install RS rods and pistons
