Oakie ABF 16VT project - Now gone! :-(

Post by Shaggy on Wed Oct 15, 2008 5:40 am

Hi Peeps! Just thought i would start a Build thread for my DIY ABF 16VT project.

Base car is a fairly clean 16V Mk2 Golf

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I have Made a start on the ABF engine, managed to get it all stripped down and ready for some tombodgery. Very Happy

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

After doing some carefull research i heading down the road of Cheapness... I am thinking about Either Stacking Gaskets/ Spacer Gasket or Maybe fitting 9A Pistons to reduce CR rather than forking out all that money for forged items at the moment. I am also in two minds whether or not to uprate the conrods..?? I am aiming for around 250 - 300bhp... so maybe uprating atleast the rods to maybe Scat items is a good idea.

I have also managed to source a nice little Garret/Air Research Hybrid T25/28 with a T3 flange .48 hot side with .68 cold side,3" intake with 2.5" V Band outlet.
Aswell as a S/S Manifold, And spacer gasket (may or may not use this) via the Rado Forum!! yay Very Happy

I have a complete G60 setup in my garage which i am probably gonna either sell complete or sell parts off seperately.. which may leave me with a G60 ECU and loom which again i may also utilise... but in the long run either Emerald or Megasquirt will probably be used.

Still got to collect/modifiy lots of other parts but i will find time to post up as much info as i can, and i am sure no doubt i will be after some help along the way

Its a start anyway. Very Happy


Cheers

Mike.

Mike, you could upgrade the ABF rods to 2E items as they are quite a bit sturdier. You will be at the limit of the standard rods with 300 horses anyway, so the 2E items will at least give you a bit of 'breathing room'.

Stacked metal gaskets will work, for a 'ghetto' turbo setup. I've seen the Americans run quite a lot of boost using them too, and reasonably reliably as long as you are gentle with the build-up of boost.

What is your plan for inlet manifold? Are you going to use the standard 'bunch of bananas' or go for a shorter runner manifold?

yeh had looked into the 2E rods, would be a cheaper option for sure! just gotta get my finger out and find one. Cool

I am defo looking into the stacked gasket route.. as it would be a cheaper short term option to get the engine in and running Cool

As for the inlet.... I am looking into modifying a Cupra 20VT inlet so i can have a budget short runner intake.

I am trying to base most of the setup on "Toyotecs" ABF Turbo setup on ClubGTI, thats the theory anyway Laughing

Yeah, Toyotec's setup is quite good really.

I've got a AGU inlet manifold that I'm going to have the flange off the standard inlet manifold welded in place of the standard 1.8t one I just means I can use the 1.8t fuel rail and FPR for now.

Not sure which rods mine are but they are 16v/20v standard rods and support your target power, they are good for 1.5bar all day long.

^^^^ If i achieve anywhere near 300bhp i will be over the moon, although i will be happy with 250 - 275bhp...so i may just leave the rods alone for now...

If it breaks i will fix it.... haha.. its only going to be the cost of another ABF engine and some elbow grease

Good lad, I don't have much time for Ed38 myself either. Can't do right for doing wrong on that place. Can't wait to see it up and running, seen some lovely mk2 ABF's and i'm sure you'll find it'll handle amazing to.

Excellent!

Sorry to hear the oaky went mate, but you are doing the sensible thing in the current climate. Who knows, perhaps you will be able to start another one in the future?

cheers again for those engine blocks, Prod has started stripping his one down now, and i'm pricing mine up! woo hoo Very Happy
