    Read this forum, But this is a older engine and hard to find bolt on parts now, mostly find used, parts, you can buy a turbo swap kit.
    many option like a V6 swap that's what I have, and I have a SVO 2.3T swap with 325hp at the wheel but that years of work.

    To use it you will need the vam for it as well and I suggest the larger injectors as well.

    Im still a bit confused, even after reading every post... Will the xr4ti ecu plug in to a 1.9 tbi (non HO)??
    If not, what could be swapped in for a bit of extra hp?

    Before I reply to this I need more info.

    Are you planing to turbo it or supercharge it?
    what engine do you have? 1.8L DOHC 1.9L SHOC
    2.0L SPI or what else?

    This will help me help you better.

    a computer set up to reprogram your car would cost you in the 1000$ range to get 5 to 10 extra hp.

    I don't think it's worth it.

    but if you are really interested contact.

    this guy to see if they can build a ECU for your application.
