I’m kind of stuck in a pickle right now. Should I continue my 1.5T project or should I go beta?
Since I blew my head gasket in my 1.5L. I am wondering if I should scrap the turbo project and go beta?

What should I do.? I haven’t made up my mind yet. What would you rather see??
Its all up in the air now. I think I can do a beta swap with 800 bucks.

You blew your head gasket?

You can get a decompression gasket and run higher boost now if you go that route...

Yea, i had like 5 quarts of oil... Umm i mean water and oil mixed:p.. I was luckey that i didnt hydrolock it.
Yea i thought of the dexompression gasket.
I was just looking at RTP beta swap, and everytime i look at that i just want one.. :cool::cool:

sometime this week im going to price eveything and see what it will run me to get the 1.5 fixed and how much it will run to swap a 2.0 in.

although I like my beta swap, I regretted collecting turbo parts for the 1.5 and then never using them. Id say try and do the head gasket yourself or maybee find another motor for $400. If you got a half decent turbo you can still reuse it and the other parts when you finally do go beta. Take your time, the car will be a money pit from now on anyways:rolleyes:

RTP is right! Personally all my friends have gone 2.0 swaps in their accents (non boost) and having my 1.5t has been so much fun! Nothing like dusting a car and telling them its just a 1.5 lol My next motor will be a 2.0 though, i've had my fun with the 1.5 after this build im currently working on. You got the parts now get a decompression plate and run 15psi trust me you will love it!

Whoops, yeah you're right. That's the wrong spacer gasket. After some looking I can't find the one for the 1.5l anymore. I know it WAS available but I don't know if it is anymore.

UNLESS your running over 10psi I wouldnt even think of a decompression gasket. IMO

if you`re rebuilding engine i would definitly go with scoupe turbo pistons.
it will kill CR and you`ll run with high boost without any trouble ;)

hm...here we have a guy who`s doing custom decompression plates for any cars :D

I will do the pistons next year if I keep the engine. I think i might do a beta swap next year and then turbo that..:rolleyes:
