1.8T used in non turbo setting? by paulifa1

  • Related topics: (no related topics)

Hi all,

This may be a silly question, but if I were to fit a 1.8 K series Turbo engine to my 1.8 non turbo 75 as a replacement, what would be the results?

To clarify, I mean to just use the 1.8T engine in a non turbo envioronment, i.e. with my cars existing non turbo manifolds, injectors & ecu.

I realise the compression ration is lower for the turbo engine, so in the above scenario, am I right in thinking this would result in a drop in power in line with the percentage drop in compression?

The reason I'm asking is my current engine is worn out and I've been offered a nice 1.8T engine at a good price.

Thanks in advance for any help :)
