Volvo 1.7 turbo?
« on: 21:44, Tue 30 May 2006 »
Has anyone done the swap for the volvo 1.7 turbo? How difficult is the swap and what is needed for the change? What sort of power is available from it? :roll:

We talked about that topic earlier on the forum surf around and you will find all information. In short 1.4t is better than 1.7t. For tune and everything else.

but the Volvo 1,7l engine is a "better" engine. Not so many problems that you can get from a 1,4l.

I hope i will see a 1,7t in my GTE some day :) Just waiting on winning much money!

Can't say which engine is better. Only due to carb 1.4 has alot more hoses which crack and can cause overfueling, overheating....
