Make sure you have it vacuum checked. Getting away with only one bent valve would be sweetness. Must have broke at idle, last one I did was doing 70 down the e-way, lol.

You've got the easy one, the passats and beetles you have to take the whole front clip off of the car to get to the front of the engine.

Hmmm, some interesting impact damage there. Hopefully the mayhem didnt crack the head or any of the pistons. The damage in the one cylinder is from the chunk of valve that is missing. Looks like it bounced around in there a bit. How does the top of the pistons look? Check the turbo. I know you said the tensioner failed, but just check to be sure no turbo blades got inhaled into the engine instead.

Thanks for the pics, by "all angles" I was refering to the head, top and bottom mostly.

Nice little project there.

heres the top of the pistons, and also, i dont believe that the tensioner was the problem, the belt has a little rip in it and also you can see where it skipped on the teeth, and the turbo blades are all good

(pics go from the pistons from left to right)





and also, i got a "gift" (if thats wat you want to call it) from the guy i bought the car off of


^but i plan on actually getting a new intake instead of the filter
