project 1.4 vvc turbo build

#1 Post by beef » Fri Jun 30, 2017 3:52 pm

here's another lil project iv been getting all the parts to build over the years my early 1.4 vvc turbo build iv wanted to do a 1.4 turbo like no one else has done befor its a early 1.4 closed deck block vvc head 1.8 crank and rods 1.4 bore it wont be a 1.4 tho more like a 1.6 iv finely got all the parts I want to use now I'm on to the stage where I'm sorting the valve pockets in the liners for the vvc vavles I need to swap the 1.4 pistons over to the 1.8 rods so I can sort the cut outs on the bottom of the liners so the 1.8 rods miss the liners with the 1.8 stroke I'm going to run it on a t16 turbo ecu for the time being and been told loads of times it can not be done so were see what will happen

"It cannot be done" is always the best way to encourage innovation!

Good luck and keep us all posted :cool

I'm not 100% sure if to keep the vvc setup or go to a solid cam setup on the vvc head and will be more of a 1.6 with the 1.8 stroke fitted but will still call it the 1.4 vvc turbo *laughs*

if I can see 200bhp with this build il be happy when the pockets and cut outs are done on the liners can build the engine up if I go with a solid cam setup I will run a t16 550 ecu
