Are you actually mental? Ah yes, yes you are! hehe Laughing

Seriously though, you could just source another 24v, couldn't you?

That's just the annoyance at the 24v being fecked.

You've tried to get rid of the corrado before and failed completely..

Yeah I came to my senses and realised we're never going to part company!

I'm currently reviewing engine options. A 2.0 TSI is really appealing, but need to research what kind of a ball ache retrofitting one is. If figures of ~350hp from the Edition 30 engine are to be believed, then I'd be happy with that.

The front end should feel a little keener with less weight out there too.

See, I've talked myself into an another expensive project already!

That's almost heading down a 4 cylinder route and non-widetrack mate!

You might as well do an ABF turbo instead and go retro power..

I have two anonymous bidders hoovering up all my ex turbo bits Very Happy

It pays to be a prominent member of a forum. No need to advertise Laughing

The block I am sure will just need 1 replacement piston to be good again, which is something i have discussed with the buyer. The head although scruffy, will clean up fine.

The engine was actually running perfectly in that state and still boosting hard!!

Anyway, TSI is out. Too much of an **** ache and engines are too expensive.

I'm just going to throw what I have in and see where it takes me Very Happy No doubt knocking on Schimmel's door again....

ABF turbo is appealing, very appealing, and I have the management system to make a nice job of it too.... but I'd rather do that to an existing 16V rado than retro fit one into mine. Call me old fashioned, but I'm quite particular with things like that Very Happy
