Re: Help! Dealer woes . . .

Audi 5-cylinder engines *DEFINITELY* crash the pistons into the valves when
the timing belt breaks while the engine is running. Even the low-compression
turbo pistons with the big "dishes" will hit the valves. I'm 99.99% sure
about this as I have an 83' ur-Quattro engine I purchsed at a very low
price 'cause the timing belt broke and bent *ALL* 10 valves.....
This engine had ~73,000 miles on it. The head had just been rebuilt and
polished/ported and was being run in a PRO-RALLY ur-Quattro when the
belt broke..... :(                        ($$$)
