how much power?
Hi all, i have no idea so need some estimates from some of you experienced people. This is what i am going to do to my boxer how much power do you reckon it will give.its a 1.7i 16v by the way. I hope for about 180Hp, if you think this is a ridiculous figure then say so and maybe you could suggest other mods that could be done to make up this figure. I don't want to go down a forced induction route as it will be an everyday car.I have read that it can't be turbod partly because of space,but i have seen them supercharged to 300hp.
. Port polished and gas flowed heads
. reprofiled standard cams to fast road rally state
. performance manifold and exhaust system
. bigger injectors
Now im told that standard injectors are nearly 100% open at 180bhp and thats the kind of figure im hoping for.Also i spoke to a guy who used a standard engine and removed the whole induction system right down to the throttle bodies on his P4 and with an emerald got 150hp out of an 18 year old engine.
