[urq] A new urQ owner, and a big problem...

The KH doesn't have provisions for a water cooled turbo, and is also a 2.1 (I think).  Further, it usually has the dual oil filter housing, AFAIK.  MC still wins in my book... and so easy to find.
12lbs of boost?  Hell, I'm running 15 on my ole WX.

Word on the street is that the KH (? I think) is a good move, the one
that had highest compression 9:1 (??)....I know of one converted ury
like this running 12 lbs boost, I think that was the common euro setup
on some year 5k.......runs fast

Yes, it's that easy... but you must remap the ECU to accomodate the
compression increase.  It's also a good time to get things set up for a
water cooled turbo as well.

One question then: you just swap the engine block and head, and keep ALL
the ancilliaries of the WX ? CIS, IM, EM, all the works ? It is THAT
easy ?
