I have. I am trying to steer away from fabricating too much. My goal is to be able to show that the 1.6 Alpha motor is not only capable of holding 200-220 whp on stock internals but that it can all be done with little effort. So foar Im solid. I got the turbo in, the intercooler, injectors all I need is for it to be tuned.ever thought of moving the radiator in front of the radiator support?
some mild bracket fabrication is involved but simple
which one of these directions would still give me decent gas mileage. i'm still in college and getting the 30-35 mpg is pretty friggin awesome and i don't wanna lose that (or at least a lot of it).I have.

ktnkguitar: Depends what you want to do. If yo want solid n/a power yeah do the beta swap. you can do some minor mods I/H/E and be good to go with maybe 130whp (if you use the 1.6 ecu) or even 140 if you use the 2.0 wire harness and ecu. Not sure. If you are looking for more I say just boost the 1.6 motor with around 5-7 psi and you will get 140-165whp. Depending on what turbo you use it may be less may be more. If you decide you want a street killing machine, well do the beta swap get internals and then boost that puppy to 15-17 psi hell you can destroy just about any car...you will deffinatly be in the exotic category with 300-400 to the wheels in such a small little car.
your kidding right? where the hell do you get your information from?no.... u still need the correct amount of fuel to match the amount of air.... so a turbo would deff use more fuel then N/A ever would, if hes going to college then i would offer advice to not do that because of the chance of engine damage and the mpg.. issue 5-7 psi would still be a bit much for a stock car.
Well I thank you for coming in here and explaining to me the in's and out's of power and fuel economy. Your age explains everything, you are only 18, you have piss all for real life experience and you are trying to tell a shop owner, who has had 3times the 'experience' you claim to have, and has BUILT race cars, street cars, and anything in between how its done. I however am not coming in here trying to call you down, like you so childishly seem to be. But you're 'information' is BS and you have an insane amount to learn.My information... Well i have 4 yrs of shop experience
Maximum boost is my bible i have a degree of applied science in auto mechanics
and im only 18 soon to be 19 if u ask how i went to college it is cuz i got my called G.E.D at 16 and my funding was paid for by the state..... and also MR.non-boost guy when the car does not produce boost the turbo and piping becomes a bottleneck int he intake and exhaust side of the engine resulting in LESS mpg and also for the turbo doesnt use gas- U must HAVE a ratio of gas and AIR for it so i dont wanna here making 1000 hp and getting 32mpg city ok u r a ****ing retard
besides a car like that is not even drivable on the town unless u have a remote boost controller.... and VERY high octane gas handy.... for these cars run 10 compression.....on sohc...so explain that to him 2 about the detonation that may occur... and to top it all off why is it when they rate fuel pumps they only go to a certain HP becuz u need so much fuel for so much air = so much HP so there u go...
