      SC def unique, but boost is very addicting. and you will end up going turbo later anyway. just trying to save you some headaches. proper turbo and you will still make the torque you want.

      Hey, not a bad idea! I'll just add a turbo to my SC for maximum effect.
      Seriously, I've seen a lot of crap turbo setups that seem to do not much besides make noise and heat. I'll look around and see how things price out and what I really will get for my money.

      Go turbo. I have had both in an A2 GLI; went through 4 G60's and then converted to turbo. Would never look back.
      Admittedly, G60 design leaves something to be desired. But the power from a good turbo setup is just awesome.
      Good luck.

      another question for anyone. what fuel rail would i use for the aba 16v swap? i could buy the bbm one but that is 140. if i could find a little cheaper that would be nice.

      SC are not cheap. if you plan a turbo setup itll make power. BBM rail or ross. pretty much only options.

      mk4 1.8t fuel rail

      I have read over this thread on several occasions, but I don't find much in the way of people running G-60's on their aba/16v? I'm just wondering how much power I stand to loose if i keep the aba pistons, with the G-ladder. I'm planning on running stock pulley on the charger, but it is already stage 4 ported and rebuilt. I would like to keep it low compression to be able to run a small nitrous shot on occasion(the occasion that my buddy pulls up to me in his VRT)
      I'm assuming I should be fine with the lower compression even if I'm not running high boost numbers but I would love to hear it from someone who has done this.
      Thanks

    18. 10-06-2009 10:01 PM #1818
      i gathered the following parts for my aba 16v swap....i got a 2.0 16v oil pump,int.shaft,distributor blockoff, the 1.8t timing belt and 1.8l 16v head. so all i need now is the machined crank pulley to run my accesories correct? and i also forgot i made a throttle body adaptor.

      I ran the OEM ABA timing belt pulley with the BBM kit . I was going to use the 16v Dist.
      off the head but decidded to go Wastespark instead.
      Here is my build thread.
      http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3701787

      I finished with 282whp and 265wtq on pump 92 octane. it ran 13.1 @ 107mph
      I have since done a Turbo setup and have desidded to go with the 9A IM shaft w/gear and swap the 9A oil pump splined shaft into the aba oil pump.
      Here is the latest build

      430whp 372wtq on pump 92 octane Ran 12.3 @117mph
      both setups same transaxle/tires/weight.

      i am looking at doing this swap in my project car however i don't know if i should use ether an OBD1 or OBD2 engine management system. i am looking to be keeping it naturally aspirated for now but maybe in the next 5-7 years i will supercharge it.

      I just got my engine back along with my new pistons from Wiseco. I forgot which way the valve reliefs face. I'm pretty sure it was the intake side but I'm not a 100 percent on it.
