Re: Performance Upgrades

Well, if you make your engine larger you won't be able to keep your fuel 
injection.  How fast do you want to spend?  Building a bigger motor gets spendy 
rather quickly.  I had thought CB Performance made turbos (well, they did 
several years ago).  Look in the VW mags and call around to the various engine 
builders and ask them.  If they don't know ask them if they know who does.  Look
at other's web pages for performance ideas.  You can start with mine.  And read 
technical articles and bug a mechanic (preferably one who knows performance 
stuff).  Gene Berg has technical articles that are informative as does one of 
the VW mags about hotrodding(sp?) VW engines.  I think we have a couple of 
racers in this list as well who would be very helpful.

...Anyway, I want to uprgade my engine so it's fast..  I'm not to good
with the mechanics of the engine, so I don't know what I'd need to go with
what.  So I want to make my engine into an 1835cc or a 1910cc, but I don't
know the best route...
