SV: big bumpers? AND BOOM CRASH BANG

Havent finished the work with golf bumpers yet. They are cut out
to fit (the Scirocco is like 3-4cm wider). It's only fitting it
to the old bumper mount to go and painting.
But time is lacking. 
Yesterday my motor sad boom crash and went like shit until I
found an escape on the highway. When I tried to start it after
looking thruu the motor compartment it didn't want to start.
After towing it home for 2,5 hours I unscrewed the plugs. #2 was
full of aluminium. With a visual check #2 and #1 looked to be
damaged. Bad compression on all except #2 that had ZERO
Guess I at least must fit new pistons, headgasket and probobly
one or two exhaust valves. Mill the cylinder head and hope that
my bearings and turbo survived.

It costs much to be on top.
