Default 1.8 with greddy

well ive been busy with my studies and finally i have time to work on my car. The only problem i have now is that im heading 1.8. First i was planning on just swapping the rear end but the owner didnt want to remove or do any work on the car, so he just sold me his car. It received a huge damage in the front but the motor still intact. I thought on keeping the 1.6 but the problem is that i have the SNC. I have replaced the woodruff key when i did the timing belt and water pump as well the crank bolt but the wobbling crank pulley was still happening. After a while trying to figure out the problem another problem happened it began to leak behind the crank pulley. Then where the tranny mates with the motor has a leak as well. Is not a huge leaks but theres a leak. The other thing my motor has 183K miles and 1.8 has 98Kmi then my dad convinced me to just swap the entire thing.
Then i got to another problem, my parents bought the greddy kit for getting accepted into RN program. I totally forgot about it cuz it took nearly 6months for the deliver. I was looking at ETDracing.com and they have the manifold for the greddy kit. Im wondering has anybody went on this route using a 1.6 greddy kit on the 1.8?

It's been done, I'm sure. I considered doing it briefly, but the kit I was looking at wasn't of much use to me because the only piece I would have been able to use was the turbo, so I went another route.

I didn't find a whole lot about this when I was searching, but I didn't search very hard. It's noted in the description for this section of the forum, so it must be relatively common.

People don't seem to know how good that Greddy Turbo works on a 1800cc BP engine!


Injectors should be fine to right around 300hp if you install a Walbro 255HP and dial your base fuel pressure to around 45-50psi. (My Opinion)

Clutch SHould be okay and ECU I don't know anything about!
