I've been blabbering on for some time now of dropping a bigger engine in (1.6 16v), strapping a turbo onto the block or lashing some throttlebodies on.
The situation, I'm just about 20, with no NCB, 1 years when september finally arrives.
The engine currently sitting in my chariot is a 1.4 mpi (not the original and I'm shafted if I crash and its inspected).
The reason I didn't delare it is due to a distinct lack of funds when the other engine blew up.
Looking at all these sparkly engine/power posts is making me yearn, I'm having the cars 'image' sorted very soon.
So, I'll get on with my point.
I've decided initially I'm going to have a bash at rebuilding a block of the same type, the internals will be uprated to achieve decent gains.
Could you lot advice me on what can be done with an engine of this type, I must stress that any changes will be purely internal + a decent manifold.
Can't be getting an Tb's just yet
