1.9L info??

1208 Views 8 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  VW4life
any of you guys running a 1.9L with the G60. a friend is wondering what kind of wheel hp and torque #'s you are getting. he talked to matrix and they had one that didnt even break 190whp he is trying to see if would even be worth spending the $$ to do it.

i think you friend would be very happy with 190whp. most 1.9s also produce a crapload of torque through a wide rpm range.

I am w/ 9:1 , will be done soon hope fully, just waiting on pistons from JE
Re: 1.9L info?? (SSj4G60)

well if you think about it those 6 whopping cubes are not going to make a huge difference. I wouldn't upgrade to 1.9 without choosing 9:1 compression. And I wouldn't upgrade to 1.9 w/9:1 compression unless the engine you have now is dead. The gains per $$ are not there. Port your head if you want to see some real gains.

I'll hopefully be done my 1.9 swap by next fri... I'm keeping the 8:1 compression and had the head rebuilt... I will keep things posted W/pics when it is all said and done... Your buddy isn't Dominic is it?

yeah its Dominik. he's near 180k mi and looking for some more power. might go with BBM 2L block.

AWE Tuning built 1.9L It used to be on there website. I emailed them about a chip and this is what they said. I hope it's not bad form to post a email.
This is an old email. I sent it when I was building my current motor.

The motor produced ~220hp with: P&P head, 1.9l, TT exhaust, 268 assym
cam, and custom tuned chip. Now that the chip is finished, it is
available for mail order: $225.
The pistons are made by JE and are 8.5:1 compression and are $650 per

Hope that help. It's sounds like Matrix had a little sorting to do. We all know G60s luuuuuuuv to be finicky. Mine sure was.
And is.

Dominik, give me an E-Mail @ [email protected] My BBM 1.9 will be done soon and I plan to dyno it after everything is nice and broken in... Larry at BBM actually talked me out of the 2.0... Too long of a stroke... Moter boggs out with anything less than 15 lbs of boost... For a daily driver with the street racing edge they said 1.9 is the way to go...
Re: 1.9L info?? (LarryG60)

Llew: I've got some questions about that dyno chart did you happen to save that somewhere? I'm just wondering iif that sweet spot changed at all with the lowered compression. i still second guess myself on gettin' a 268 cam when I think I'd really like a 260.
I'm more than likely gonna go 1.9l with my motor but damn will it be expensive.
