What do you guys think it would take to get the 2nd gen 1.9L to run on par with the 1.9HO?

I know the 1.9HO has a better flowing head, but lets say we didnt rework the head on the 2nd gen just to save costs.

On a budget, what do you think it would require and cost to compete?
i mean i wouldnt wanna dump a ton into anything to make run high 16's...but for cheap enough i'd do it.

This is what i'd do to get close.

-Gen 1 Header.
-2 or 2.25 exhaust, no cat, dynomax muffler
-SPI TBI from wrecker
-Custom intake with K+N Cone
-UDP
-lastly a chip<--but that would blow the budget IMO
think it would be on par?

the 90 EGT 1.9HO made 108hp. thats a 20hp difference.

Yes they do make chips for the 1.9L

108hp to the wheels assuming 10-15% loss is about 92-95WHP

88hp becomes 77-79WHP

IMO you can get about 10-12 WHP from an Intake, Header, Exhaust, UDP and a chip would add some more.

Think about it
