Smile garrett t60 on 1.6

hey guys. as you may see i am a noob here. i am building my 1.6

je pistons

eagle rods

acl bearings

arp head and main studs

ms2

head port polish with titanium valves spring ect.

1200 dausche (or how ever you spell it) injectors with 320 aem fuel pump. (going to run e85)

i got this garrett t60 for a steal and cant find a manifold with an external wastegate thats reasonable. any help here? not trying to spend almost 650 on a begi one.

also any input (besides junk the 1.6 and swap 1.8) on my engine?
goals are at least 325 safely.

Junk the 1.6 for a 1.8, sell that massive turbo for a profit, dont use that AEM fuel pump, buy better injectors, save the head porting money and put it into a better turbo.

You should spend an absurd amount of money on an inferior engine, then slap on an inferior turbo and then cheap out on the manifold as well, that tends to be the winning combo around here......oh wait

i got this garrett t60 for a steal and cant find a manifold with an external wastegate thats reasonable. I don't think you understand what reasonable is when you consider what you're asking.

any help here? not trying to spend almost 650 on a begi one due my jewish heritage. Just stop right here.

also any input (besides junk the 1.6 and swap 1.8) on my engine?

Yes. Stop being cheap. Either engine can make that power easily with a proper sized turbo, good tune and the correct supporting mods. If you want a 1.8 you can source one for cheap. If not, just understand that you will need more boost to make the same power and super models will never want your dick.

just remeber noob here. any positive input would be greatly appreciated. Welcome to the jungle. My pubes taste of salt and monkey sweat.
Glad I could help.
