I've decided i'm going to put a C20LET into my Mk3.
I haven't got the time, or space to strip a car, so im going to buy an engine.
One concern i have about this is that i won't be able to tell what kind of health the engine is in before i fit it.
So, I was planning on Having the engine stripped down and rebuilt by a friend of my Dads; who has built loads of engines before even restored a few cars. He knows what he's doing, just never worked on a C20LET before so i want to be armed with answers to any questions he'd have.
What should be on my list to look out for / replace.
Im not going mad power wise. The plan is to get a bigger intercooler (frontera item) Get the car Unichipped which i can use with the Nitrous as well.
What parts should i buy? (Z20 headgasket? Z20 injectors? ARP rod bolts?) I don't want to be spending money on bigger pistons unless i really have to.
What parts usually wear out?
Who would be best to inspect and repair the turbo if neccessary?
Any other information on what to look out for on C20LET's would be appreciated!
