[V8] Engine rebuild options

Hi Listers,

as I am forced to tackle my ever-dripping ABH -engine, I have decided to get a junkyard engine, go through it sparing no time and then just replace the drip-drip -one with a rebuilt one.

I have generally always used genuine Audi -parts for everything, but as there are no piston rings, nor main/conrod -bearings for the V8 available from Audi, I was wondering if any of you have experience in using aftermarket items or even interchangeable V.A.G. -parts(like VW Golf 16V)? 

Thank you,
- Ari -
