bare engines about 750 on ebay ,k03 turbos are 250 new or 100 second hand. if you got the money go for k04 from an audi and get 300hp+

Why don't you make a 16vT instead? Certainly a bit rarer than a 1.8T
they wont last long even at low boost. i was considering 2.0 8v turbo but i doubt the internals could withstand an extra 1 bar of pressure.

obviously you'd get forged pistons vince.
1.8 20vt is so much easier to maintain/do tbh!

you would get more power from a different golf head. read that somewhere.

they cost 450 new. ko3 at 22 psi gives out 250hp with uprated intercooler and remap.
