    turbo 1.6 8v

    im a machanic and i have managed to get a small turbo off a seat and i was thinking about trying to fit it too my 1.6 8v make it go abit better ive had a look at it and it will go on and i can get a oil feed to it and everything and if i run it at a low boost then it shouldnt blow the engine and if i get it remaped it should go well what do you all think is it worth it or is it all going to go bang?

    Pepe is selling a 1.6 8v engine for £100, so if it does go bang, you are all set to restart. A low pressure turbo in theory should be fine with the 8v. Heck - I've even seen supercharged Citroen 2cv engines!
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com

    Sounds interesting mate Go for it. Run it at low boost, even if anything does go wrong you can pick up these engines for pennies
