Yes it is possible as you can use a manifold off a carb 1.7 versions and mod the base of the manifold to accept the carb.

To be honest there is no real gain in doing this and taking the fuel injection off for a carb isn't the way to go really.

i have a friend here with a r5 gtt b18ft and he tell me that volvo electronic sucks and i have to agree that carb is better to tune and drive..

if i had 1.7 engine on carb i have more displacement on the engine and c1j engine head problems solved...i think..

so what i was thinking was...
-b18ft engine
-renault 5 gtt group A carb
-t25 turbo with t3 actuator
-port and polish head (and some other things)
-re 209 ignition
-exhaust manifold modified
-intake manifold modified
-more eficient intercooler
-oil cooler
-water cooler
-better radiator
-and some other stuff..

what i was thinking was..
first: engine look was kile original one
second: more displacement = more power
third: no more head problems

so what do you think??
sorry my bad english :lol:  :lol:
