Im also going to start back up working on engine builds and heads ( had no time before) and theres already a few jobs to do, and since the build of a rather fine "shed" should allow me some better space to rebuild them, (bigger and cleaner than the cmc engine room btw ) things might work out after all.
Sounds like a plan, new shed and DIY flow bench, keep us informed.

I'll second that, been in a similar position with work and it sounds like us classic Audi enthusiasts will benefit from your decision. Now if you can find a supply of 92.8mm 5 cyl cranks you'll be very busy I'm sure
