hey guys, looking to do a small build here.
going to be using a standard 1.8 8v /w crossflow head, im looking for something that will put out chipped 1.8t power and torque, and have a very low rpm spool while still making 170-180 hp
im thinking something like the k03 size, or the 1.6TD t3 setup, combined with an intercooler. perhaps a .50/.48 t3, although iirc its stll much bigger than a k03 or k04 even? maybe a T15? im not sure. i have no experience with turbo's this small.
they do make a diesel k03 with standard 8v manifold which is very intriguing! although im not sure its the same size as the k03, and the k03s's were the ones making over 150whp anyways so it may be too small.
i'll be stacking the gaskets with arp studs. ive had good luck with this before so i see no issues. i know alot of people frown upon it but its worked for me.
i think i have my heart set on going megasquirt. this will be a new frontier to me, but i have a lot of experience with 034EFI so once i get used to the different software it will be a down hill roll.
