Re: best swap--4 rabbit gti? a2high-comp8v, 2.08v, 16v???? (dean upholstery)

1.8L CIS - stock
2.0/1.8CIS head - quick and slick with nice torque
1.8 16V - simple wiring. Classic
2.0 16V - more wiring
2.0 16V/ 1.8 16V head - more flow
Drake 16V - whatever
Oettinger 16V - in your dreams
X-flow ABA - FINALLY, EFI
VR6 OBD 1 + 2 - torque master
1.8T - pure sex
turbo any of the following and life is that much better
There are so many options.
I'm doing the whole oldschool turbo CIS setup right now. I do want to do a X-flow swap so I can get back to EFI. I'd have to say that a 1.8T rabbit is my favourite though.

Id go with a 16v. I love 8v's but my 16v was fun as hell in my rabbit. It was only a 1.8l w/ lightened flywheel, exhaust, K&N and fuel enrichment. But it topped out at 136mph (gear limited) hit [email protected] w/ a fuel pump that quit on me going home. The whole swap was only $350 and it surprised alot of VR owners.
