LOL yeah, easy to do out of a 1.6. Don't forget though, this is the guy made 200+whp on a 5psi greddy 1.6 because he used and AEM standalone instead of our lowely megasquirts.

Man, that guy was full tard.

lol i love the debate about 1.6 over 1.8. I currently have a built 1.6 with cams and a 2871r. I make 335rwhp on 20psi and 250rwhp on 14psi on pump 98 octane which i think is 93 over there ? My plan is to switch to e85 soon and go for 370rwhp and leave it at that.

Atm i hit full boost at about 4k rpm and thats with the bigger .86 rear housing. At first i was worried id drop off boost and it would be **** to drive but at the track i dont have any issues at all. So it just depends on what u need to work with your car.

In saying that though, if i were to do it all again i would have gotten a 1.8. Its just easier and more reliable and takes less effort.

Hey, newbie. Knock it off with the spamming. You'll get banned faster than you can post again.

Lol, after this thread i bought forged goodies, then i bought JayL's built motor and subsequently sold the forged goodies. Following that i decided to sell the built motor since I didn't have a usable head. And now i bought forged goodies again. Funny how things come full circle (once or twice...)
