I'm on my way to build 2.0 engine for track purposes, using engine block from 1.8TS honed to 2.0 size, pistons and crankshaft also from 2.0TS. This combo is 15kg's lighter than standart 2.0, and when on track every kg counts.
Problem is that with 2.0, crank position sensor touches crank's tooth - and i need to know how far from the crank this sensor sits in order to do some spacer for it. 1-2-3-4 mm?????
Anybody knows correct figures???

Can you use the toothed wheel from a 1.8 on the 2.0 crank?

I would guess that the sensor needs to be as close as you can get it, without it touching.

Obviously you have to allow for a bit of thermal expansion, so I would go for 1-2mm


If the car doesn't run then the sensor is too far away.

Yea, i thought that will be less hassle, but 2.0 cranck "balance plate" is aprox 1mm near to toothed wheel, and no matter how small 1.8 wheel will be(don't even know if it can fit 2.0 cause crank balance piece is bit bigger), i need at least 2-3mm's tolerance still.
