If you already need a rebuild that will be the perfect opportunity. Schrick cams will set you back £8-900, if you wanted a gas flowed head that'll be £1650 with a £600 exchange for your current head, pistons and rods will be around £1500. Chain kits are around £200 as are head gasket sets. If you needed any engine spares, head or block and all other parts, Lucifer on here always has parts or complete engines for sale, he can also advise on where to get parts for good prices.
Why do you need a rebuild if you don't mind saying?

Are you getting any smoke, overheating or any other symptoms?
not any other symptoms just started a mad misfire, took it right to a vw dealer that is when they said about the low compression.. the water pump went and got replace just before all this happened.

Had it been overheating when the pump was shot? Could have warped the head if it did?
no did not overheat was just pissing coolant out as soon i put it in. The garage are taking the head off today should find out soon...

There was a tuning company that forged the internals of a R32 and eeked 320hp out of it. Very costly and it was just to show it could be done.

Hard luck fella
