I'm soon to get my hands on a set ko3 turbos and intercoolers for free.
We was talking shit and was joking about twin turboing my 1915cc engine. As I want to turbo it at somepoint.
What I want to know is it possible and has anyone done it? If so what would I need to do so.
Heres a hot topic.
I've a 1600 twin port that I built with forged pistons, stock cam, ACN L3 heads and a somewhat low, 6.7:1 compression ratio that I could do with raising.
Down the line I want to add a turbo and perhaps Megasquirt.
I've been toying with the idea for months and the only thing...
Mates just called me,
giving his 1.9 150bhp golf some enthusiastic driving and BANG
I am presuming its the turbo
He said its got absolutely no oil left in the engine but no leaks anywhere.
He checked the oil just before he went out too and had plenty.
Up for sale is my 2332cc EFI Turbo motor. Before you get to the boring bit the price is £5500.
I bought it off here about 15 months ago (Original advert).
It originally came form Kev Donlon's "Hovis" Bay Window (Original build thread with some engine history.
The spec I bought it as was...
Hi, I'm looking to swap a mk2 golf cylinder head from a turbo Diesel engine into a GTD engine. Can any experts tell me any difference between the entirety of the engine? Tolerances, bore size, etc etc.
Im not thinking about doing it but its something ive thought about before, what are the pro's and cons on supercharging or turbocharging a beetle, obviously i know that you have constant power with supercharging and only power with a turbo at specific revs. But whats pro's and cons on having...
Ok... I'm kind of testing the water on this as it's with a genuinely heavy heart that I advertise it. However I'm not in need to sell it and I'm not sure I want to so I wont be giving it away.
Many years of thought, pondering has been put into this and all the work carried out on it.
Decided to run my recently built 1300 engine N/A, after coming across some problems fitting the turbo kit whilst in the car, and then realizing how much the insurance for someone of my age would cost if i was to run it turbo'd :(.
This is the full kit. And has all been run...
I've decided I need to let it go, it's just not suitable for my needs with a littlun now, so much so it's lucky if it gets used a couple times a month if I need to quickly go and get something from Tesco down the road!
So... here we go:
1985 Audi ur quattro Turbo

Does anyone know of somewhere that preps carbs for turbo use near southampton or dartford? or someone who sells kits to do it myself?
the carbs are kadrons and i want to be able to run over 10psi boost on occasion.
I am looking to turbo my 1600 beetle and was wondering if i could keep my twin kadrons as i am on a budget and can't really justify doing it if i need to get another carb.
I have read that kadrons can be used up to around 10psi without turbo prepping them, is this true? Seems a bit...
Having slowly upgraded to full EFI, I've got the following turbo stuff for sale, initially as a job lot...
2 Renault 5 turbo carburettors, custom manifold and ported twinport ends. The principal carb was bought late last year from Mike at GT Turbo Spares for around £200 and has been rebuilt...
3door Golf Gti 20v Turbo 150bhp in Reflex silver. I have recently replaced both suspension top mounts and also both rear axle bushes. The boost control valve (N75 valve) was playing so that has been swapped too. The car has been lowered on brand new 35mm springs. I have the original springs and...
New to the site, so hello all.
I have a 1641cc engine and a c75 shorrock charger in good working order that I should like to marry to it. Conscious of everyone turbo’ing at the moment I thought a nice change!
Being rather a novice and after trawling the net I can't find much help.
