1.8 XT turbo for engine swap.. Any performance upgrades?
Posted 22 February 2004 - 12:40 AM
Well I have a friend that has an 1.8 XT turbo engine that he'll sell to me for 150 bucks. I have a limited budjet, and I'll get the hoses and all that lined through the car with the XT engine, then I'll go to a Subaru EJ20DETT 280hp engine when i get more money.. but this other engine is the first step.
I have a friend that is going the Flat 4 twin turbo route right now, so I'll be able to follow his example when Im ready.
My question? Are their any web sites or stuff that have performance stuff for the 1.8 xt turbo engine? I know its a turbo engine so I should be able to pump it up a bunch with a big turbo.. but if I wanted to keep the turbo what else could I do to it? an intercooler plus pumping up the boost?? What do you guys think?
Btw the 914 is probably the best handling car on the road.. it weighs 2000lbs and it stops on a dime. I just hate the VW engine that comes stock with like 80hp..
Oh ya, im 17 and this is my first car.. My dad has 2 944 turbo Porsche's one is a race car which we are building right now, and it should have about 420+ crank hp..
I hope I can fit in this community..

I don't think the EA-82T is the place to look for power...just save up for the EJ-20...

And I doubt a mr2 will beat my 914 in the twisties.. I have full racing suspension
Anyone answer the question? Im thinking that If I turn up the boost, run a basically straight through exhaust, free flowing intake, intercooler.. and have a Megasquirt for a computer. I'll be getting a bit of hp.. And I'll be able to put most of that stuff on the EJ 20 engine.

Anyone have any pics of some of the mods they have done with this engine? Oh and whats the tech name for the 1.8 XT turbo engine?
Posted 22 February 2004 - 10:43 PM
if you try a search, you will find more than enough info on these kind of mods. i guess 14 is about as high as you want to go. it also depends on the year system you have. if its a flapper maf sensor, or a hotwire. hotwire is the later one, with the fuel cut.
theres a realy good thread about real dyno numbers, wich are usually disapointing, because you always think you have more power than you do.
150 to the rubber should be a good goal
till you go all out with a haltech and a big fat turbo.

150 to the wheels, hmm What is the flywheel loss for the XT's? I dont have an xt..

something to keep in mind, but nothing to stop you from doing it
Posted 23 February 2004 - 10:28 AM
Donald you say
an ea81(xt turbo)
I am not sure, but I believe the XT ,
never came with an EA81 in the turbo or N/A version??
Posted 23 February 2004 - 10:36 AM
my point is, if he designs his ride around the xt motro EA82, he will have to go with a different configuration to go with the ej motor, different bellhousing and ecu
Posted 23 February 2004 - 01:25 PM
Whats the difference between the EJ20, and the EJ22?
I am a noob to subaru's..
Posted 23 February 2004 - 02:20 PM
I think im getting this..
Posted 23 February 2004 - 02:31 PM
EJ22G (or EJ22T) is the turbo 2.2L, the NA is simply referred to as an EJ22 and doesnt like to be turbo'd.
the EJ20G (or EJ20T) is the turbo 2.0L, but there was an EJ20 NA that was available in other corners of the world.

Hey, don't take it personally. Somebody like me, who doesn't know an XT from a hole in the ground, would have assumed from your post that they could be had with an EA81. I appreciated his correction, so I didn't pick up misinformation. It's not like he's "out to get you" when he fixes misinfo so folks like me don't get it wrong.
