Alternate Engine Got a Scooby motor in the back of your dub? Or a V8? Alfa? You know a Porsche motor drops straight in - right? This is the forum for you. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Tbh I've always stayed away from looking before I end up wanting to upgrade further! Lol
Would appreciate ypu letting us know once all done tho how ypu get on and any major differences.

I thought the limit for a ej20 was about 370 closed deck if don't want it to detonate tho I was chatting to a mechanic the other day that plays with scoob for fun and he had a 470bhp ej20! Pretty much stock but with a turbo he had put together and had remanufactured, but still came in cheap compared to off the shelf high hp turbos!
