Just turbo what you've got.
I think mine's actually finished now, so hoping to get out soon.
I think the WO codes are 8.2 ?
A low pressure turbo wouldn't go a miss tho and those carbs originally came of a turbo engine as I swoped all the bits out ... Although it's easy to say it .... 99.9 % of people would be more than happy with your current motor ....
@Paul Weeding what cam would you have used?
It's all about running cool at speed and accelerating smartly and quietly IMO. Rob and I discussed cams at length on many occasions, but we both felt we liked the all round torquey nature of the standard one. Having previously added lift (ratio rockets) to a 2l T1, it did noticeably perk it up, but I really did want to leave a bit in the tank.
Are you certain about that?
I've not got the laptop open, but one engine ran 8.4, maybe a little more... I'll have to check
In a 2366?
Yes I was looking yesterday. Maybe to odd T4 car engine went a bit higher.
more hp than my t5 makes...........
What is? Not mine surely!
yep mines only 102hp 1968cc although i suspect being diesel it's more tourquey, the same engine is used through the range at 84/102/140/180 bhp the ecu just decides which one you have, remapping is common most go for around 160hp and mega tourque.
this thread may make more sense to you i don't really know much about stuff like that
Don't be so sure, I gave away 50hp in favour of grunt.
Do your 0-55, you know you want to
0-55 in the t5? 0-60 as factory for the 102 is supposed to be 16 sec.
That would be empty. Mine's fast if I hadn't changed to 5th at 55.
