How much psi can a stock GT 1.8L from a second gen take safely? and what would the HP come out to? and what was it before a turbo?
not worth the swap. you'd have to swap everything from the gt to the lx. it'd be easier to buy a gt and start from there.EscrTRaceR said:What will it take to drop a 1.8L GT engine in to my 93LX that has a 1.9 SEFI engine? I have used the search option and I come up with crap not even relating to it. is it just a direct bolt in? or will I need the tranny and axel?
The GTX is the 1.8 BPT (same as the BPD8) but the BPT has a compression ratio of either 8.5 or 8.8:1. slight difference, but it makes it much more turbo friendly. The GTR, so I've been told is the Jap spec 1.8 BP engine. which doesn't exist in the states, it had 210 hp stock.92gt5spd said:well, personally, the gtx is just a turboed 1.8, so i would imagine that the hp would be around 180 as well because with the gtx, its stock. they didnt change the engine until they made the gtr which has 220 hp
