Dave V6 (member on here) had a ZS180 which he got Reyland to convert to Audi 1.8 Turbo power using teh original PG1 gearbox.Which audi lump, is it a straight forward conversion?
I went on a stag night recently, I drove the ZS and a mate drove his honda civic VTEC, 1.8 with a factory 180bhp. I was 4 up, he was 3 up and at no point could he even get close, I pulled away from him every time he tried it on.
I have driven the 2.0 and its not quick, the revs make it seam so but its not. Its a harder conversion into the ZS but I have seen it done into older civics, best reason would be the 6 speed box, also honda engines can be turbo'd on stock internals very easily.
No idea what either of those are, the car my mate had was a T reg Honda VTEC, same bosdy shell as my ZS except it was a hatch.The problem is CTR's are a lot heavier than the ITR DC2 I had, which definitely felt quicker than my 180 any day.
In fact when I had my ITR I drove a CTR back to back with it, and it wasn't as quick so I kept the ITR.
???why not fit a type r lump in and super charge it as there would e load of room to do so plus would **** all ova a vvc or audi 1.8 turbo
naaah the type r engine standard is 197 bhp and 145lb ft, the audi engine is 225 bhp and 210 lb ft and if you spend the same money on the audi lump as you would charging the type r engine the power gap would be much wider.why not fit a type r lump in and super charge it as there would e load of room to do so plus would **** all ova a vvc or audi 1.8 turbo
