transfer boxes and turbos
I've got a 8v 4x4 Cav, and want to put a turbo lump in, eventually with a decent amount of power, say 300bhp for instance.
Now, I presume I'd want to upgrade to a F28 for this, but what about the transfer box? Can I upgrade to the turbo version? Will it fit etc etc? (I presume so.. but would like confirmation).
Anyone know the part number for such a thing, the gearbox is an F28... so what is the turbo transfer box? I Want to make sure I get the correct thing.
Or, should I try get hold of an uprated transfer box? Does anyone make/sell performance items?
If you want a turbo I would start off with a better and newer chassis than an 8v 4x4. Isn't it abit rusty around the rear springs now ?
Also the 8v spec is poor.
Can't you get a GSi 4x4 or turbo ?
But yeah it should fit.
Hello Glenn. nice to see a fellow Milton Keynes Mig member
The 8v transfer box has a few differences from the turbo version most noteably the vsicous coupling and the propshaft coupling.
All turbo transfer boxes have a "Y" at the start of the transfer box serial number (located underneath t/x box beside drain plug)
Have a word with someone called TimP on here who mentioned a scrapped Cav Turbo near him. Hopefully this will have a t/x box and F28 for you.
ahha! finally found information regarding sports TX boxes..
