What makes you say I cheaped out on my build? I've done everything but build/replace the motor. -1
I never said you went cheap on your "build", bc everyone knows here you spent a lot of time and money trying to be like the 1.8 guys. But you did cheap out on not starting with a 1.8 like a lot of people. Anyways, I know 230whp/[email protected] is a very good accomplishment for a 1.6 turbo.

Anyways, sorry if offended you by calling you a cheap Jew.

I don't think Philip wanted to save anyone from misery.

I believe the child was functionally cured from HIV, however, there could still be minute amounts of the virus that went undetected. Until further research, the child isn't 100% completely cured but, it does give mankind some hope.

As for MT.net, the only cure for AIDS is a 1.8 turbo.

Brain, are you still running the T3 super 60 and BEGI cast manifold? On a 93 1.6?

Ok, I have to ask....you complain bitterly about how crappy the 1.6 is but you've run a fairly large 300hp capable turbo that spools poorly on a 1.6 now you're running a slightly smaller churbo which is also a poor choice for spool. Why not run a turbonetics T3 40 or 45 trim if you want to stick with your manifold? either of those would spool significantly better than what your running and should make the same power your running.

You're blaming your motor for not performing to your expectations but you're hampering it with a poor choice in turbo.

I was gonna warn him too, but he's a really stubborn old man, and probably wouldn't have listened.

especially after I would have told him my 1.6L performs VERY well for a 1.6L and outspools most others on this site with much smaller turbos, even BB turbos...

C'mon Brain, after 2 pages of talking about how cheap you are, why don't you just buy a $700 turbo? Surely that will solve all your problems.

Better yet why not just get an EFR? Sure it's more than twice the cost of a 1.8L upgrade, but who care about logic?
