Thumbs up New guy, from Cape Coral! 92 1.6 N/a resto./build

Hey guys,
Name is Matt, made the noob stupid first post.
This is my second post ill probably screw it up so bare with me!
I shut my mouth after the first post and did some reading (thank you for the advice from the senior member) right now I've got my car painted going to be doing some color sanding this weekend and pulling the motor after its *** backwards painting before doing everything else but that's the way it worked out. Going to be looking at 1.6 replacement or 1.8 swap for motor and have been looking at greddy turbo kits. Going to be doing ALOT MORE READING! Just wanted to let you guys know where I'm at any advice on motors drive lines rear diff swaps for increased horsepower. Would be appreciated! Thanks for your time!

Get a 1.8. Get a Torsen. Get Megasquirt. Build a kit that is superior to Greddy or find one used in the classifieds. Now go read.

Don't buy a kit. Do the research and piece it together yourself for your individual needs and wants. But do the research for a couple of months first or you will likely buy the wrong parts. Engine management will be your first investment if you do it right.
