Re: what engine for my golf 2l crossflow or 16v (Pen_vdubGolf)

good condition 16v are somewhat hard to come by these days and you will probably be spending most if not all of your 2 grand fixing the 16v. If you are strictly going for more power per dollar, an ABA 2L CrossFlow complete block and head with not too high mileage can be found for relatively cheap, I've seen some go for even as low as $300, and the rest of the money you can use for a budget turbo system for the car and you should be seeing around 200hp. But if you were to ask for my opinion, there's nothing like an MK2 chassis with a strongly built normal aspirated 2.0 16v

x-flow.. more reliable, and if you build it right.. you can crank out the power pretty easily. Im building my x-flow turbo now, should produce about 240 whp, and low boost. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
