Well ,my Stock G60 is broken... i mean that the housing's are broke but my Displacer is OK.... (can't figured it out...) anyway, i wanna buy a Lysholm or a G60 RS2.
what do you think..which is better,if i buy the Rs2 i'll be running a 72mm pulley(think it's ok),and the Lysholm would be stock too.
The prob is the money i can have a G60 RS2 for $1800 and the Lysholm would be $2300... but i don't wanna have anymore trouble with the damn charger's!!!
What do you guys think....???
By the way i dont want any turbos i hate cars with turbos ....(i'm being bad... sorryy....just kidding)

Re: I'm not sure....please help ! (vedder)

I've been going over the future as I have been running the G60 quite hard and I was going over the possible replacments for my G60 and I've come up with a few options:
Lysolm (very reliable/solid PSI)
Turbo(Hope you are a wrench, crez wasn't)
sell the G60 engine and get:
1.8T engine swap
TDI engine swap and build the piss out of it
VR6 I don't think so
But then I came down to fact that its more than just and engine or PSI maker and I have decided I would just get another G60 with may be a 70mm and then run NOS as an upgrade
In the world there are many more 1.8T people and the G60 people are a rare rare breed. I'd like to stay where I'm at its worth the pieces.
If it wasn't for the Lysolm's sound I'd go with it. But I think I am a g60 type of guy.

while frank may be a g-60 "type of guy" im more of a "tired of flushing $$ down the toilet on a g-lader thats eventually going to need to be rebuilt or worse, grenade" type of guy.....so i went lysholm. i love it, loud azz whine and all. ive got the 15psi pulley on it, it made it louder, so what? who cares? so i creep thru my neigborhood doing 25mph in fourth gear. so old people and folks in mini-vans pull over to the side of the road for me. ive been spanking the boost monkey hard now for the last 4 months and i have no complaints.
bottom line, if your going to spend upwards of 1800 bones on a reworked charger, go lysholm. more reliable, 2 year warranty, big boost, big torque, big noise, big fun. of course this is just my opinion.....
