Hey all, have been pondering on building on this engine. Have been looking around and it looks like the EA211 1.4TSI turbo looks like a direct fitment swap. Anybody has done it or is considering swapping it for a bit more oomph? Cheers all.
Probably not, but it’s easy to increase the power output if you want, without changing the turbo.
Just get a remap, it’s been discussed at length on here and those who have had it done say it’s a big improvement.
the whp is disappointing though. 2.5inch downpipe straight through 3inch exhaust, intake on a custom tune only getting 110 whp which kind of translates to around 145hp at the crank or so. looking for more nearing 180
Imagine a remap, with higher quality Garrett turbo, you would probably see over 150hp.
If a totally standard car, can comfortably produce 143hp, a larger turbo, and free flowing exhaust, and who knows, the Forge intake.
That i recon should see close to, or above 150hp.
A more powerful turbo, can make a significant difference, when all the other mods are done in combination.
It certanily will not be a mod i will be doing though.
