Okay, just new update, the engine is broken!
Car was working perfectly till 3 weeks ago, then the oil consumption become strange, the engine lost one litter up sudden then I add it!
Last week I was going the data logging on 4th gear and during the first log I found a huge black smoke from the exhaust in the back of the car and heard a strange sound in the engine and the car stopped after 300m and that’s it!
As you can see from the pics, the piston in second cylinder is missing! And the block itself is scratched. Moreover the valves are not okay too!
I will check and inspect the turbo to make sure nothing happened to it too!
Honestly I didn’t expect that the engine is damaged because everything inside it is new and forged!!
I don’t know what I will do now because my brain is out of service for the time being.
I am swapping a stock CDL engine now and will install the rest external parts and tune it for low boost for the time being.Noooooooooooooo
I thought I had it bad not being able to finish the project but wow...... Man I hope you find a way to get it back together without too much expense.
Go turbo - superchargers and belts are a pain in the rear. Much prefer turbo. Man a turbo 3.6 wow..... you could get a lot of info from HPA since that is how they build their cars.Okay, I think I am going to do something crazy as I got bored of the 2.0T and it’s problems at least for now.
I am looking for Passat or Superb R36 mechanical system with quattro, most probably I will convert the car to R36 but I will have a serious issue with the Passat ECU SW as it won’t work with the Rocco ABS and braking system as the Passat ABS and hand brake is electrical!
So I will have to go for Superb system and ECU but it’s 260HP while the Passat is 300HP.
As far as I read the differences are in SW so once you installed Supercharger or Turbocharger both will be equals, not sure if it true!
Anyway, this is the way forward for now if I couldn’t find a good CDL engine with good price.
All ideas and thoughts are more than welcome.

Seriously.. 100k for a turbo kit?? Give me that money and i'll build you 3 or 4....Also, contacted HPA and their R36 turbo kit cost is extremely high, it’s more than $100,000!! DQ500 is mandatory with their R36 kit.
They have a complete turbo kit solution for R32 with average power 620hp with DQ250

That is crazy money, don't see the value really though I would love to have one.Apart from that I won’t pay $100,000 for modifications!
The $100,000 is cost of complete forged R36 engine, DQ500 DSG, turbo kit, suspension, brakes, exhaust, ECU, tuning for both ECU & TCU, etc...
That is crazy money, don't see the value really though I would love to have one.
Looking forward to what you do with R36 but why not just stay with the 2.0 and avoid all the additional headaches.
