I posted earler with a question about 5cyl blocks. Miktip pointed me to a link about a rebuilt 88 5000 block. He said that's when they went to the 2.3 liter with oil squirters. Or something like that. I took a trip to my local Pick-n-pull and found the newest Audi there was an 87 5000. I check on AudiWorld.com's model guide and found that it too is 2.3 liters. Would that block be as good as one from an 88? Any other reasons to find one from an 88? Or would this block be good? Thanks for any help.
