Feeler FS/FT: Imported 2001 Audi S3 3.2 VR6

Totally new info, disregard old title

2001 Audi S3

Car was originally a 1.8t with a ko4, same setup at the TT225 with a 6 speed awd haldex
In 2015 the motor was fully built with a precision 6062 - later in 2016 car made 577awhp 503awtq
At the end of 2016 we had a mishap and ended up needing a new bottom end
After long debate and many thoughts I decided to part out the 1.8t and turbo kit and do a 3.2 VR6 swap (out of a 2004 R32)
Before putting the motor in I did every bit of maintenance: timing chains and guides, valve cover gasket, spark plugs, coil packs, metal crack pipe, new water pump, thermostat, thermostat housing, front main seal, rear main seal, reseal oil pan, coolant temp sensor, you name it I changed it. Only things that remain untouched are the oil pump and head gasket, as it looked nice and dry and saw no reason to dismantle the head off the block.
I also stripped the block and applied por15 to it to clean it up and look now.

Full color change from Black to BMW Euro Spec Salmon Silver
I get tons of compliments on the color
Color matched door blades, rear bumper insert, front bumper insert and shaved euro license plate tub
