Default Greddy kit for 1.8L possible??

Would it be possible for the greddy kit to be put on a 1.8L?
If it is, what would I have to change/add too the kit?


Thanks guys

manifold/downpipe, cross over pipe. Pretty much everything but the turbo and oil line

you wouldnt want to. Itll be more expensive to do that then to buy an equivalent kit.

A whole lot more bang for the buck and alot better quality.

If you already have the parts, sell them and buy a BEGi-S kit.

If you don't have the parts, buy a BEGi-S kit.

if you have the parts, and you have a 1.6, and you have someone who will install the kit for free, tell them no thanks, sell the kit, and buy a BEGi-S kit.

You could always install a 1.6.
I've actually seen a 1.8-->1.6 swap car. Once.

Bell's stuff is better quality than the Greddy stuff. But that's not to say that the Greddy turbo and manifold are not capable performers.

haha. ETD has the 1.6 > 1.8 GReddy manifold now IIRC. But I'd follow Savington's advice.

The one where you falsely implied that the oil supply line which comes with the Greddy kit will work on all 1.8 engines, without clarifying that only early-model 1.8s have the required fitting on the block and that on later cars one will need to replace that too, leaving the actual turbo itself as the only useful component of the kit?

(j/k, dude. )

It has also been designed so you can use your current 1.6 Greddy Downpipe with the new 1.8 Greddy Swap manifold.

Using that stock little pipe just seems to me like kissing your sister. You can do it, but why would you want to?

Seriously- I just can't see buying a Greddy kit and then attempting to transplant it to a 1.8. If you're gonna DIY then do it right- find a Garrett 2554 or 2560, buy a manifold, and make a downpipe. Otherwise, save the headaches any buy the Bell package.

It's not like the parts that Greddy supplies are of particularly good quality, it's just that, for us 1.6ers anyway, it was really the only affordable non-DIY option for quite a long time.

This is for the Greddy owner who has a dead 1.6 engine, and now wants to swap to a 1.8BP engine without much effort. My first turbo kit was a 1.6 Greddy (10 Years ago), and one of my buddies upgraded his 1.6 to a 1.8 with a Greddy TD04. The car was amazing! I think he got it up to 280-290ish with a LINK Mk1 ecu.

I agree that the stock greddy Downpipe is ***! But many people spend so much upgrading their greddy kit, and have to sell it all to go 1800cc.

NOW THEY DON"T!!

This is a manifold ETD has been asked to produce for a while. Just had to get the time to bring it to market
