    Advice 1.9 conversion

    The garage rang me a told me the damage and it was the block needed to come out and be rebored.

    I am looking at going dwn the 1.9 route (83mm pistons)

    Correct me if i am wrong but i wouldnt be able to use the standard head gasket? What head gasket would i need?

    Also are there another bits i would need for the conversion?

    Cheers

    You 'can' use the std head gasket but the alternative is to use one from a non turbo 1.8 20v (Bill at Badger 5 runs a 1.9 20v is his Ibiza race car)... can't remember the part numbers off hand but some more info is available here:

    Lots of Big Turbo and High Power info!

    I personally wouldn't go above 82.5mm on a road car....

    I don't know what effect the increase will have on the fuelling requirements of the map but the ECU should be able to adjust to suit....

    83mm Pistons then you will need a N/A 2.0 20v head gasket

    I was just thinking that while i am there. I might aswell go for the 83mm but if i can go for 82.5mm and stay with standard gasket i'll do that

    Cheers guys.
