Huge thread drift I know, but the reason is it's MUCH cheaper to keep the 1.6.

I know NA 1.8s are cheap, about $300 from a junk yard? But then everyone says junk the head for a '99+. That's another $350-$450 for a CORE, then there's at least $200 in machine work to clean, R&R valves, and surface. Plus the time and/or labor costs to pull the 1.6 and put in the 1.8 you've just spent time and/or labor cost to build.

Or just suffer the 40ft/lb loss and keep the 1.6.

I hate you all. The tacotaco cast is out of stock on ebay. So I will need to find a used one for cheap.

Or just suffer the 40ft/lb loss [at a minimum], 500-1000RPM of slower spool, and keep the 1.6. Not to even mention spending all that extra cheap-jew savings fixing the: slipping clutches, longer stopping distances, donkey dick chassis, and broken diffs.

Neat kit! I like the simplicity.

Can you do it with a T2 flange, EFR and make it 1.6? No extra cost, please. I'm on a budget.

Truthfully it is as many people who want to sign up until Dec 14th. Once we hit 5 people the price stays at $1000, and shipment times will go up a bit for the people lower down on the list.

Jesus christ that was the most raw, honest install I have ever seen.

Lars, you should have at least let me edit the video. That **** looked like it was edited on a flip phone.

Where is my 1.6, EFR kit?

The video was shot on a friend cell phone over the course of about 45 minutes. Then thrown together on a Mac. I had no script, or formal plan for the video, or any idea of how to properly make a video. I knew I just wanted to show off how easy it was to install the setup, which I think the video does. For my next video I will get JoeP to come down with all his fancy hi end Tv Studio equipment and union guys and have the video rival the quality of House of Cards.

Email [email protected] and you will get the hookup. In all honesty I will never do an EFR setup. That turbo alone costs more then my whole setup and kills the whole budget idea. Go with Artech or TSE if you want to run an EFR turbo.
