    a3 90hp using a 130hp turbo

    Hello
    I'm a a3 owner from Portugal and have been wondering if i fit a 130hp turbo in my '96 1.9tdi 90bhp will make any difference? Or even if it is possible.

    BTW it allready has a box installed, so i guess it has about 115-120hp.

    Thanks

    You could possibly get a 130 VNT turbo and manifold to fit your car, but the 90bhp models have a wastegate, with a totally different boost control system to the 110/130/150 variable vane turbo cars.

    You would also have to modify the boost control to get more pressure.

    A bigger turbo is only really required on a heavily modified engine, when higher PSI and cooler charge is needed, without the turbo having to work as hard.

    The best route to take with a 90 is larger injectors, and a remap to suit.

    A larger turbo, modified boost control and front mounted intercooler can be added afterwards if you want to push your engine even more.

    Hello.
    I asked this because I kind of have a good oportunity to buy a A3 130hp used turbo for 200 (about 150). But just fitting the turbo wont do much power on the car right? And it wouldn't fit perfectly would it? (sorry for the noob questions, but no auto expert here :|)

    I've also heard that since the car is too old i should change the noozles...
    The remap is also a solution i've been wondering.

    thanks

    hi ,
    your existing egr pipework will not fit on the 130 turbo manifold
    so you would have to buy the correct egr pipe , more expense , the mounting flanges are at different angles
