Right then i Pulled my 16v lump of the GTE bout 3weeks ago and i looking for ideas as what to do with it. First off if i keep the XE lump(89 20xeJ) its going to need a rebuild, which is no problem as i kinda no what im doing in that field. At the least it needs all new shells, crank regrind, honing, pistons, valve guides and valve seats re-cuting.
I quite like the idea of TB, but alot of my people have said take the LET road, but im not overly keen on second hand engines. Ive been offered a big power 20LET with 270bhp for 2.5Ks But havent seen it yet. My other thought is to rebuild the XE with a turbo.
Basically my question has anyone got any opinions on which works best, turbo or TBs on an XE and how much it to spend. I have seen a kit that QED do for under 3Ks which includes pistons, cams and TB and around 200-210bhp, but no turbo kits.
Any help please
