I have a CE coupe which I take to Winton for fun.
It currently has an FTO V6 in it so performance is adequate but as I am interested in handling I think it may be a disadvantage to have it due to weight at the front.
I have toyed with the idea of going 4 cylinder turbo, specifically the 4G93T from a CM5A.
Just wondering how well do these engines spool turbos up?
I am not interested in huge power (200kw at the front wheels is more than enough and will likely only run about 170-180kw) but good response is important.
So, an Evo 5 4G63 will likely make 200kw at the front wheels on the stock turbo and hit full boost by 3,000rpm (I assume?).
What would a 4G93T need as far as rpm to spool that same turbo to make the same power?
I understand the 1.8 will need more boost and likely cannot handle that power with a stock bottom end but the thing I am trying to figure out here is purely how much extra lag will the 1.8 have to gain the same type of performance as the 2.0.
Reasons I would like to avoid a 4G63 are primarily weight, cost, and of course complexity of installation.
