Back in the 60's, my dad used his manual tranny car for mail delivery and IIRC, he never really had clutch wear issues. He never rode the clutch. It was either engaged or not engaged with very little slip on engagement. Cars had bench seats back then so he put the sorted mail on the drivers side and drove from the right side. Sure looked bazaar............

Probably not the same driving situation as yours. My wife's 6 speed auto Camry is a blast to drive. She really gets P.O.ed when I come home from driving somewhere and I mention how much fun her car is to thrash.

Nice! I do the same to my wife's 2015 kia optima hybrid. She gets 40-50 mpg. When I bring it back it has .... 20ish
Well got the crap pulled of the front. Discovered the turbo actuator is busted so either replace that or some how use it as an excuse to get a upgrade turbo
Gonna call it a day. Dam fever is kicking my ass though I want to continue....

Finally got back to work after getting sick and busy with other stuff. Yesterday I pulled the good engine. Today I mounted it to my engine stand, started pulling broken parts and inspecting it to the best that I can. To what I can tell by just looking at it the timing belt, water pump, tensioner and cam look like they have recently been replaced. Here are some pictures sorry for the crappy lighting and quality

Any chance you'll be parting out the car? I so need an Inner timing belt cover which was taken out from a broken block

Speaking of broken blocks...I would highly recommend replacing the upper engine mount bracket with the newer version 03G199207G. These blocks can't take the stress from repetitive removing and torquing the bolts of the engine mount bracket. As you can see, it bolts onto a little nub on the engine block and alternator/AC bracket. It's just simply poor engineering.

If that ever happens while driving at considerable speeds, expect catastrophic damage. I considered myself lucky and it only took out the upper and inner timing belt covers.

Do not use the timing belt. You have zero history on it and the risk reward is not high enough. It's cake to slam one on with the motor out. Pop in new water pump as well. I always throw in a thermostat. I would also recommend the one coolant housing on the drivers side of the head. Its 30.00 or less. It's up to you, I try and replace the common failure parts while I go thru it. The cam, you need to verify it has the chamfer edge on the lobes.

If you drive that DSG for a while, I would recommend at a very minimum, checking the DMF for play. Personally, while its out, you can throw one in for $325.00. It is really easy to do it now ;-)

You should be able to part out and pull in some dollars to cover these items. I will drop you a PM, I am looking for a cluster, ecm and a steering wheel.

I know the feeling.. my current car dropped the engine down when the mount broke. Took out the inner and outer timing cover, cracked tab on block, the mount and a hose. The Van Gough bracket solved the problem. (Put in a new belt, water pump, etc while I was repairing - bought it broke after ins co totaled it out for the prior owner)
