Hi All

I have purchased a B2 Audi 90 quattro.
Im looking to add a turbo but it looks like im best to purchase a motor with a factory turbo set up.

Any advice and direction would be awesome and also where to source what I need.

Thanks

So it all depends on what you want. If you are going for all out power #'s, then I'd say go 20vt. If you just want more power than the JT puts out, and are ok with CIS, would could swap in a 10vt.

I swapped a 10vt MC1 from an 86 5000cs into my B3, but I hate CIS. Because of my hatred for CIS, I also upgraded to EFI via megasquirt.

I recommend a 20v engine...in so many ways better for not much more work, even if left in stock trim. As DE80q notes, going EFI on a 10v is also a fine choice. Seems a waste to spend the energy to transplant a motor but stay with CIS.

Im currently having trouble just testing the fuel pressure with my CIS on my 10v 90, CIS sucks. As Dave said, both engines are a fine choice it just depends what you want. If you go 10vt, youd be better off doing an efi swap during the engine swap because CIS is just not worth the hassle. I chose the 20vt and Im currently in the process of rebuilding the engine I bought. Im not sure about the prices for 10vts but I got my 20vt for a little bit over a grand, just to give a sense of the price of the 20vt. Though mine was sitting for a couple years and was in need of a rebuild, so a healthy one that is ready to be dropped in will normally be closer to the $2k mark.

I'd say go 20vt, Ive never worked on a 10vt but I did some research before making the choice and Ive found that the aftermarket is bigger for the 20vt. If you want to build it up and start pushing the numbers, go 20vt. If you don't care about horsepower, just buy which ever engine you find first that fits your budget.

In terms of finding an engine for sale, the fastest way to do this is Facebook. Join some groups and post some WTBs. That's where I got mine.
