very drivable, not a lot of knocking or at least not that i can notice. TONS of smoke, but runs surprisingly smooth on 3 cyl, though at certain points the engine runs with more power than others. For instance: WOT gives slightly less power than half or 1/3. seems to be a sweet spot somewhere. seems like #3 cyl is burn out for one reason or another and barely has compression.

but did get it up to 90 on a down hill.

test the compression... if it is all decent, might just be a blown headgasket... change it out, and keep the 1.8 in that case, then sell the 1.6 for money towards a Megasquirt

Because 1.6>1.8 duhh


*edit:

I actually used to make fun of guys that took forever to build a BP, and now I have a spare BP, all the parts, all the turbo parts, and basically everything for a super awesome build and setup sitting in the shop for over 5 months while I don't have time to build it.

UGH
