New Engine 1.8 in a '94 - Need some input
Building a new motor for my 94 that's about to get a BEGi S3 turbo setup.
Here's what I have
Complete '03 longblock (intake to oil pan) with 30k miles
Fresh 96 Head with some "mild" work done on it (that's the description I got from previous owner???)
and of course the 140k motor coming out of the car (1994)
I'll be running MS engine management with innovative lc-1
Looking for 12psi tops (for now anyway)
What combination of above parts is best suited.
First and easiest is probably 03 short block, with 96 head
Is it possible to remove VVT functionality on the 03 and use complete longblock. There is also the complication of no CAS on the 03, correct?
Don't bust my *****, just trying to start some discussion before I get too far into this.
