yes its a small turbo, but use been using the car with no boost control, so it will be running manifold presure, wich would be about 10 psi, no det at all
the fsi love it. in fact i belive the turbo is a little small for the 1.6. once it dosent det the pistons and rods will be fine.
the fsi turbo and 1.4 turbo that ive stated to do most like will match the mpg of the tdi, and will mot definatly be a better drive then the tdi's.
the 1.4s have proven in the past to be very difficult to turbocharge, mainly due to the electronic accelerator pedal. TTP and B&B were turbo'ing Lupos some time ago but the pedals were seen to be an insurmountable challenge...
The FSI is not superlight. The 1.4 is just light.
A Swift Sport (140 bhp), that is really light.
We can see it is technically possible to install a Turbo on our little A2. My question is : what about the legality? Do you need to put the car back through VOSA? MOT? What about the insurance?
Sorry for all the questions. I thought about something like that for a while and I was amazed to discover someone had shoehorned a 1.8 Turbo from a TT in an A2.
Thanks for the infos and good job Clive!!
