Here we go...
87' Jetta GL w/ a 1.8 8v Sohc CIS-E Motor w/ 178,000 miles....
to make it short is this worth the time and effort and of course mainly the money? $? $? $? $? ..... or should i just swap in a g60/2.0 16v?
strip the block down and rebuild w/ new crank and 2.0 pistons
(autotech engine package)
Exchange my head for a rons parts 3 angle valve job, port and polished head
and lastly getting a cheap turbo kit from 8vturbo.com ...
ofcourse i'm going to get a cam, igition, exhaust and the rest of the little things but those are the main things... i'm hoping with the turbo i could get around 200 - 250hp ?
...am i crazy?
...who knows
...hopefully u do, respond!

no, get a 2.0 block from a newer vw or an older audi and spend about $250-450 instead of paying autotech $1595 and then still having to put it together

sounds good. although if you want to go turbo, you would be better off without sticking with cis-e. the motronic engine management that comes with all the 93+ 2.0l vw engines would do nicely. you'll need the crossflow head to run motronic.

vw stock ignitions are great. just stick with the stock stuff there. for the cam and exhaust, i would talk to techtonics (www.tttuning.com) and see what they recommend. the majority of us here have tt exhausts. i'm very happy with my 2.25" cat back of theirs. i wouldn't say that you're crazy. i'd say that you could probably make well over 200 hp, but you would need to do some other things, like possibly lower the compression to a more boost friendly level (down from the 10.0:1 that the 2.0l blocks have) and a stronger transmission (like any of the 02a's) if you wanted a lot more power than that. pretty much, the only thing that will hold you back is money.
