Thats where the a3 rear subframe comes in to play, alot more room in the back!
ToddI am almost done collecting the parts for my A2 x-flow turbo setup. I will be using a t3/t4 also, what is your expected WHP goal? where in Jersey are you located? I would love to see this car in person. also who made the intake manifold for you? it is sweet!!! congrats on your project [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
Im in central jersey, the local machine sop made teh intake,and im really not sure on the hp. But its gonna be some where in the range of high 200s on the stock block.
sweet that is right around the area that i am shooting for (250+ on stock internals)
I see a few people have used 1800vwparts. 1300 bucks is not bad for a low mileage engine and all the needed to complete the swap (mine came with an autothority chip, i didn't know that they have AMS chip now). Tom really knows this swap He was the one that did mine for me.
As for all A2 X-flows being slow They definitely aren't the fastest things on the street, but coming for a 1.8 8v, it definitely is more of a fun car to drive. (turbo..coming soon will take car of the rest )
