Chris' Built A20 Setup (Going to be boosted)

Update: The car finally runs, really really rough and rich, but hopefully I can tune it to the point where its livable. :-)


I have been planning to build an A20 for a few years now, and with the age and condition of my current motor, it was finally time. The motor is fully build and ready for turbo, but because I am a broke bastard, its going to stay NA for at least a year.

I am currently getting the car ready to do the swap, and when I get the motor in, it's time for a quick break in, and then I'm off to the dyno and the track (when they open). The tenative goal for the car, in NA form is about 160-165 whp, and high 14 second quarter miles, with good tires. Read about the rest of my car (coming soon).
