2.0 8v - 1.8 T 20v conversion
« on: 09 December 2008, 12:35 »
Well doesnt look like there are any buyers for the golf and after a miss hap with some tarmac me and my motorbike i was thinking my new toy could be my golf converted to turbo, so first off let me say it's no going to be a BAM engine as there rare as fook and the ones that do come up are usually just engines not g/box engine loom etc, rhyso checked with rtec for me on sunday and they can remap and know someone who can deimob ECU. however i have a few issues

1, I think i have electronic throttle on my 2.0 but most of the engines for sale are agu and therefore cable throttle
2, Will the excisting Gear lever linkage match up with the turbo box


expect i will find more issues but thats it for now,

Someone at AMD just had his 1.4 converted to 20v turbo and the bill came to 4k. Have you already fitted better suspension and brakes etc?
