1.6 8v rebuild, turbo, swap

hey all, planning on rebuilding a 1.6 8v in the spring to run a turbo, then swap it into the zuk, just working on pricing and figuring out the turbo right now

any suggestions on the rebuild?
has anyone used the calmini kit?

right now im looking at about just under $2000 for everything installed

I'd price out a build kit locally before spending 700

Have you looked into putting the turbo on the 1.6, have you considered swapping to propane as well?

highly suggest reading teamswift.net if you have not already, tons of tech on turbo swaps

Local build kits are up there too,
Running a turbo is pretty strait forward, been doing some research
And I havent looked into propane yet

I think you will find tuning with propane/turbo setup far easier then using the EFI

Carey at gotpropane.com has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to propane and turbo setups and has done quite a few on samurais.

and will build the propane kit around the use of a turbo if you decided to go through him

Also have you decided on a small turbo?

Do note that dependng on your compression ratio pane is 110 octane.

take a look at your small cheap turbo from an eagle talon. stock they are good to 300HP on a 2.0L t25 from the second gens 95-98 or a 14b 90-94

I'll look into that turbo and let you know, as for the manifold I may consider, I could build one, but I figure it's gonna take forever my first time

ive read on other forums that truboing an 1.6 8v is really hard with a bunch of problems but the 1.6 16v is realetively easy check out zukworld in diy builds under turbos a couple of guys on that site have done it and one guy sells the turbo headers ...just a heads up as i was looking for the same set-up
