Hi people I am new to this list and have had a look through the old posts
learning a little as I go. I have always wanted a fast URQ. To me fast
means 400-500 bhp.
Well in the mean time I got a 84WR that needs a little body attention parked
at my garage. I fitted new (hydraulic shop) oil cooler lines as the old
ones where duff and got the old girl running. She had been sleeping for 4
years. I havent drove the car more that a few hundred yards but already
got a bit of a four wheel drift going on, on gravel. These cars are class!
Anyhow a 20VT is what I want under the bonnet of my URQ. I have been
looking for the right one for a while now, and two have came at once! I
have the option of a more expensive late model s2 ABY or a earlier(cheaper)
RR. I have looked through etka and found that the crank, and rods are
different. The rods are weaker on the RR I believe. And the ABY has the
spark on plug system and the RR has a dissy.
Basically I need to know what is the ultimate tuning potential of both
engines, before you need to get into changing rods and other expensive
stuff. I want the car for track days and fast road use. I would be using a
complete stand alone ECU package. I have also just got a garret GT30R ball
bearing turbo that is good for 510bhp. Im not a great fan of the 70s
technologies that are KKK 26/27. Obviously a custom exhaust manifold will
be used. I want reliable power.
How much more is a ABY/ADU engine worth as compared to a RR. Eg twice as
much, 50% more?
Please lead me in the right direction once again. Thanks, Des.
