Hi, I have a 2000 VW New beetle with the AEG 2.0l engine.
I want to know if a 1.8t turbo system (turbo,intercooler,piping,etc) will fit my 2.0l.
How much would it cost approx. to get the turbo system off a 1.8t at a salvage yard?
Also, is it worth what it would cost over getting a complete 1.8t engine and doing a swap?
Thanks in advance.
-software and matching injectors(Usually go for $300-400 for a set)
-Turbo($200-$700 depending what you want)
-Intercooler and piping(U can go ebay route)
-tapped oil pan($50-$100)
This will get you up and running. depending on system, you are looking around 200hp. More then enough.
If you wanna get tricky you can always get:
-Short runner intake
-Bigger MAF housing
-thicker head gasket to lower compression
-Cam and cam gear
If you monitor the adds, the parts pop up relatively cheap now and again. Digging stock parts from 1.8T is a waste of time and money.
I bought a complete 2.0T car for $650 not long ago. A side from a turbo kit,i got lighten flywheel and clutch, parted the car and made $800 profit.
