Hello I am New to vwvortex and vw ownership as well. Recently picked up an 86 cabriolet in great condition. Got the bug to build it up after driving it a few weeks and realizing it is kinda fun to drive. Just lacks a little on the get up and go. After dorking around on the net I have seen some interesting builds out there. Then found vwvortex. So hmmm. What is the best motor to swap out the 1.8 8v with if I plan to end up boosting? Would rather a supercharged version in the end. Also can anybody clear up exactly what motor (like ABA or something...) And trans I have?

Stock 1.8l 8v
