Hi folks
My cam belt on my 2.0 16v coupe has sheared and the engine may be screwed. Car's getting inspected next week but i'm not optimistic. If i have t source a new engine, whatengines will fit in a 93 coupe? These cars are pretty hard to find in my local scrap yards

How fast was the engine spinning when the belt broke? I caused the same effect i.e. valves hitting pistons, which bent 6 valves. However after coming to terms with the act of stupidity that caused the damage I removed the head and managed to repair the damage which was only bent valves. Worst case would be bent or broken valve guides or badly damaged pistons.
From this experience I know that there are distinct similarities between the Audi and VW 16V engines although I doubt that they are a direct swap. If there are any Golf GTIs or Passat 16Vs in the scrappys it may be worth a look.

Good luck, hope you can find something.

Keith
