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!
