Re: 280/300bhp 1.6 147 turbo car
I just want to say that I don't think Hoygaard did his project to prove anything to anyone (nor to show off, like some people did), he did it because he wanted. And nobody has the right to criticize him or his options. In fact, I may add that I admired his work, because HE did it, not his mechanic! And I understand his options because he, like most people around here, didn't want to spend 40000£ in his car!
I'd love to have the guts to try a similar project, but I can't risk my engine because I don't have enough money to buy another one so soon.
PS: Hoygaard: in opposite to ADs ££££££ project, that has about a bezzilion posts here, there's not a detailed topic in AO about your supercharger's project. I'd really like to know more about it, and try to identify if with forged pistons the project would have succeeded... If you don't mind!
