I heard about that the 1.9 really hates turbo

is it true?
maybe a 8 psi is not so bad?
maybe a swap to 1.8 BPT and put it @ 13 psi is better?

My 1.9 does'nt seem to mind.
I started this thread cuz I saw your picture in the signature...
I went on ur cardomain site and I read really fast
but I saw "Page 3: 2.0 Motor swap Directions.
Page 4: 2.0 History and Rebuilding."

2.0 is not 1.9!

Jeff ran a 1.9 or a 2.0 with like 6 pounds of boost for a while... there are only very very minor differences between the two engines and either can be turbo'ed quite easily. Right now he has a 1.9 hybrid engine. Its a 1.9 block with a 2.0 head. This loweres the compression ratio and lets him run i think 20 pounds of boost, good for 262 lb-ft of torque AT THE WHEELS!!! He is the man to talk to for cheap hi po setups... his current monster set him back less than a grand :wink:

Ummm...what?

Last I checked, there were a lot more than 4 pages...and turboing the 1.9 has been one of the hottest topics on this forum ever since Jeff hit the dyno...

Honestly man, go check out the Turbo forum. There is lots of information for you there about turboing the 1.9

First of all, Smarting off to the experts isnt a good way to get information. Secondly, you DO need to know All about the 1.9, or the 2.0, or any other engine you want to turbocharge before you do it so you dont blow it up... unless you like changing engines like everyone else changes oil.

man some people are touchy.... this is why i dont like forums some times... the tempers that fly.

I heard about that the 1.9 really hates turbo

1. False
2. I belive 8 psi is fine
3. If you can find it and if you have the money. I personally would do it if i had the time, money and, the other rescources to do it.

and if i was a moderator this would be the end of topic and it would be locked

Jeff. I didnt think the 2l head was compatible with the 1.9, care to explain how you made this work.

I really hate when ignorant people start doubting our cars and what they are capable of, next time you want info click the damn search button its the only red text on the page, that way you wont make yourself look like such an ass asking dumb questions and callin the 1.9 gay.... we have a handful of pple here with turbo 1.9s.... go take a ride with jeffescort , then come back and tell us what you think of the "poor 1.9"

hey, he's prolly running a stock 1.9 which really does only have 88hp... not exactly something to be proud of. i can understand calling a stock 1.9 gay, but as far as capabilities it really isnt. he sounds like the kind of guy that will end up with a civic..

Moved to proper forum. JonnyBee. Next time you ask for information being polite to the people who can help you the MOST would be the best suggestion I can give you.

Alright guys enough with the flaming. He knows he needs to read, now it's up to him to learn if he really wants to do it.

Just as a side note:

Calling anything "gay" when describing the bad aspects of it really pisses me off.

Can we get out of the 90's and start using bigger, more descriptive, non-derogitory words? kthxbye
