Re: 1.8l Dohc Fwd Tx3

Does the BP 1600 turbo gear fit your motor?
Atleast exhaust and inlet manifold ?
Looks like the dissy from that model was boost referenced also...
In spark retard on boost...

you could grab all the gear from a front cut or wreckers etc of your car or you could save money & headaches by selling yours & buying a turbo 4WD factory one it depends how much you like your car
