i have an 86 GTi sitting in a wharehouse waiting for an engine swap to be put in. Problem is i cant decide which engine.
i was originally going to put in a vr6 from a parts corrado, but the corrado is in good shape and i don't want to tear it up. so i'm gonna fix the raddo instead.
I want the 86 GTi to be a mean sleeper and good drag/barely daily driver car. it's going to be an ongoing project and i will go into full swing of it once i finish my raddo.
So back to the motors, what would be good for making awesome HP:
(at a pretty reasonable price)
Turbo VR
G60 Turbo
2.0 16vT
I know the turbo VR is going to make the most, but can the G60T and 2.0 make about 350-400Hp reasonably?
What tuner(s) could make that power for these engines? (schimmel, etc)
Willing to hear any input, ideas, advice or info you guys have.
thanks guys

What would you consider to be a resonable price for a 4 cylinder motor to makes these types of numbers? I would say $10k on the engine alone sounds resonable.
That being said, for a turbo project, I would start with an ABA motor, lower the compression a tad (8.5:1), work the bottem end, run stand alone engine management, add a nicely sized turbocharger, air to water intercooler, some headwork, jack to boost 20+psi... you'd be lucky to see near 300hp
or use an aba bottom end with a 16v head, add the items above...
