Alright picked up a cabro for a steal. It have a 1.8 16v motor. (This is the forst vw ive ever owned ) so bare with me. . I have a few questions. Im tearing the whole thing down and re doing it bodyy engine bay shave and tuck repaint eveything the whole 9 yard! I want to boost the motor and im aiming for no more then 300 whp. Its only going to be a show/weekend driver when finished . So here we go
1.) will 2.0 16 v forged pistons be compatible with this motor ?
2.) what would be a good turbo to run for this motor (nothing crazy)
3.) what would be a good compression ratio to run with this (yes i know the lower compression ratio the better for boost.
4.) any good tips or input to help me further this project
5.) what would be a good bore size for this motor
6.) how indepth should i go as for building the head
Thats all i can think of at the koment im quite sure more things will pop up but thats a good enough start . And please no trolling and harsh remarks like i said (This is the first vw ive ever owned soni dont know much abou the motors or cara in general . But i do have have common sense and pretty decent mechanic skills. So nothing is ever impossible . THANKS AGAIN TO EVERYONE THAT HAS SOME INSIDERS AND USEFELL ANWSERS AND TIPS!!
