  According to my fiches, a 20vt short block is available from AoA for both
the 3B (200) and the AAN (S4 and S6). Part # 034 100 105C will get you a
brand spankin' new AAN short block for the low low price of $5007.00
(luckily that's without Linda's discount). Part # 034 100 104 T is the
number for a 3B short block, but you are correct about it's unavilabilty.
However, part# 034 100 004 TX will get you a factory rebuilt 3B short block
and for ONLY $3340.00. If there is any available, you can also get a core
3B motor from your dealer for $1785.00.

 $5k for a rebuild? OUCH!

Well, again, according to my fiches, they are available from any Audi
Dealer. For some unknown reason, they are selling the rod bearings as a
upper and lower half, but here it goes: 034 105 701 007 is the upper half
of the AAN rod bearing and costs $8.65. The lower half is 034 105 701B 4OZ
and costs....hang onto something.......$51.70!!!! You need 5 of each part
number to make a set BTW. Part numbers are the same for the 3B.

 Main bearings are: 034 198 491 C for the AAN and cost $36.25 EACH (you
need 6 to make a set). 034 198 491 A  for the 3B and they are 37.85 EACH!

HTH someone! :)
