The engine service parts are the same as Audi 100 2.2 5 cylinder engines.

What other parts do you need?

Timing belt is Audi 2.2 as is the water pump.
The sump and seals should also be the same but not 100% as i never had to change them on the 2 i owned.

As for the manifold i'm thinking that is Audi as well but the downpipe is SA specific.
You could always have a 5 into one stainless manifold made up if you get really stuck.

The best person to ask for definate part numbers would be someone with access to VW SA's ETKA or ETOS system.

Or send Stuart Stirling at the Syncro Hospital an email asking him if he'll supply you with all the part numbers you need.

Don't worry he's very helpful and i'm sure if you ask nicely he'll be able to help you out.

Also registering on the Brick-Yard and Club80-90 won't do you any harm as there's a few SA T3 owners on those two forums and they'll be more than willing to help you out with any other questions you may have.

Nealy forgot..Russel at Syncro Nutz is South African and he's well clued up on SA T3's.

See there's no need to panic anymore.

I have just emailed Stuart Stirling, with some luck im hopping he will get back to me soon! Im also down loading vw etka at the mo haven't found a sa one yet but once it's finished down loading there are add on's to down load as well so im hoping it will be in there some where!!! as for brick-yard im chatting to another SA VW owner later who is being very very help full, im going to see how that goes then get back on the case after tomorrow!!!
P.S I have been looking at the audi 2.2 and would it be a MC block i should be getting bit's for?
