    Gsi engine into 1.8?

    Hi,

    I have a 1.8 g (X1 and was just wandering what all would b e involved in upgrading this to a 2 ltr turbo out of a GSI or ACT? how much would it cost roughly? anyone done this before to a X18?

    Thanks

    you'll also have to convert the throttle - for instance if yours is the X designated engine it'll be pre 2000 therefore cable driven throttle - post 2000 Z designated engines have fly-by-wire electronic driven throttle - no cable etc and all done by electronic gizmo trickery... I dont have a clue how hard the entire engine conversion would be so it'd be best to speak to those who have first hand experience.

    Someone will be along soon Im sure to guide u in the right direction.
