OK well I am still confused whether what to do, I want more power and I was thinking about either putting the usual stuff, chip, exhaust, intake, cams, 1.8L head, or just saving all that money and slapping a turbo. Does anyone know what are the benefits of it? What power could it produce with low (safe) boost? How much is it going to cost me? How safe is it on a 90k motor? Your input is appreciated.

Re: Turboing a 2.0 16v What do I need? (2035cc16v)

so it went down to see the performance gains right? Have you guys thought about modifying the actual seach?
there are a lot of people onthis forum who are computer nerds, and i am sure we can figure out a better way to search. the existing one is not only un-intuative, but yeilds inaccurate results (when you can get it to work).
i tried searching for
"breaking in motors" - nothing
"breaking AND in AND motors" - nothing
"breaking" - nothing
i JUST posted a topic called " breaking in a fresh rebuild?"
search recent topic - nothing
search archived topics - nothing
all of this is done with the 16v formum selected
all of this is also done with creator left blank.
am i doing something wrong, or are we dealing with a crytic search engine?

Re: Turboing a 2.0 16v What do I need? (ABTMuDa)

Here is your answer. Just rip me off before I change my mind.
This engine was built from the ground up...
After much work and much money, I was only able to run this set up for about 500 miles working through the "break-in" stage of 1000 miles when a garbage truck decided to cross my path causing me to total the front-end of my car. I will be selling the engine and tranny.
The tranny was re-built by Certified VW Tech, who installed a Quaife Diff, Redline Gear Oil, the works!! The engine was bored one size over. JE pistons were installed, 1.8 head on a 2.0 block, Matrix Stage 1 Turbo, TT HiFlow CAT and TT CAMs, Nology wires, silverstone plugs, too much to list, NO SHORT-CUTS WERE TAKEN!!! This engine runs hard, just drop it in and roll.
