Parts for Sale/Wanted / 1.6 N/A Injection pump cores/ random parts
« on: November 24, 2014, 08:04:52 pm »

Asking $75 each obo. Unknown condition as I have no way to test them. The one with the pulley on it has some damage to the tip of the threads. Could probably fixed fairly easily with a die.

Located in Whistler BC, can deliver to the city (Vancouver) if necessary.

Other parts I have that I may sell but no idea on their value...
Garret t3 turbo, unknown mileage, cant feel any play in the shaft
1.6td intake manifold, exhaust manifold and downpipe
7 injectors, believe they are from a 1.6td, no idea on mileage or condition
2 sets of injector hoses(piping?)
1.6td MF hydraulic block with internals
2 heads, 1 has cracked threads on injector port, other is disassembled, both have cracks between the valves and no idea on re-buildability
Brand new OEM AAZ head

my engine is in pieces and has no vehicle as of yet to go into. I'm planning on swapping a td into my suzuki samurai, was originally planning on a 1.6td but I have a brand new oem aaz head so I may sell off my block and parts pile and try and find a aaz block.

I can turn the pulley by hand on both pumps, is that a good sign for not gunked up?

Any chance youd have any idea what a used garret t3 turbo with no play in the shaft would be worth?

Hey, I got 2 pumps with a motor I recently bought but I doubt they work. Anyone know of a way I can bench test them? I'm curious if they'd have any value for core/rebuilding?  I'm also not sure what engine (turbo or non-turbo) they are for.

My project changed plans and these parts need to go ASAP

1 used MF hydraulic block including oil pump, crank, pistons, and con rods, may or may not need machine work
2 heads, one has a crack in the injector threads, the other is disassembled. both have cracks between valves and in precups. may be salvageable.
also come with some random bits, no injectors, IP, turbo or manifolds

located in Whistler but can deliver to Vancouver if necessary. No idea what these are worth asking $200obo?

I can email any requested pictures if desired.

I have a head that has more precup volume than an aaz. While I don't daily it and my calculated compression is somewhere around 17:1 it does ok at low rpm. If you have good ring seal I don't think starting and running issues will be a problem for you. As a former avid off roader I think a newer design turbo will be a good choice as you really aren't needing the vw set up to keep all the exhaust and intake stock. That said a t3 or k24 with a 2.5 to 3" downpipe and the ported better flowing head will start building boost almost instantly, but not reach max boost until a little over 2,000. Maybe 2,300, at least that is my experience, maybe faster if you like a ton of smoke. If you have to buy a turbo and don't have one laying around I would suggest a holset or Mitsubishi as they are built way better than the others out there

The turbo I have is what came with my parts pile, I will upgrade it in the future but I'll probably use it for "now". I'm going to be running a custom 2.5" short ram (possibly snorkel in the future) on the stock intake manifold (1.6) as well as a custom 2.5" exhaust from the stock downpipe (1.6). Plan right now is for a walker quietflow resonator and a dynomax super turbo muffler, that should keep the truck pretty quiet and have plenty of flow.
...and if you decide that you need to get rid of that OEM AAZ head, please let me know.

Interested in trades for a very lightly used GT2056 turbo and downpipe / flange adapter?


I may end up selling or trading it but if I do it would be for a freshly rebuilt 1.6 head. That being said there are a couple AAZ blocks on craigslist. theres actually a full aaz for $180 but it needs a full rebuild. Waiting to hear back on that one, hoping it just lost the timing belt and not the crank pulley.

I'm not in a rush to get this built. I was going to try and get it together sooner rather then later as I just came into a bit of money, and my stock 1.3l engine has seen better days. Plan is to install the engine in the spring if everything goes right.

alright so my best bet is to find a 1.9 block or a 1.6 head. The head was pretty hard to pass up for $500, hopefully I can put it to good use. I guess I'll hold off on rebuilding the bottom end just now. Hopefully I can sell some of this parts pile so my gf doesn't go crazy at me lol.

Care to explain why a 1.6 head would be better? Everything I read says the 1.9 head flows better and spools the turbo quicker. I havnt seen any in my area that wouldnt need a full rebuild and the 2 I have are no good, the one has a crack in the injector threads and the other has been decked so I dont think it would be ideal. I dont really have a set boost in mind, im hoping to make around 100hp/150tq.  I actually dont even have a power number in mind, I'm mainly looking for enough power to run 120km/h up hill and semi quick acceleration  which would give  more then what I'd need for offroad. My guess of 100/150 would probably be pretty close for that. the stock 1.3l I have now is 60hp/76tq which has trouble going 80km/h up hill on 28" tires.

Is the k14 the ideal turbo for my use? Looking for more low end power for turning heavy tires and crawling up stuff.

IDI Engine / AAZ Head on 1.6 block
« on: November 15, 2014, 03:28:56 pm »
Hey everyone. I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I've bought a 1.6 MF block, turbo and a pile of parts locally for $250, I was also able to find a new oem AAZ head for $500 which I grabbed. My plan is to build the engine to drop into my suzuki samurai and run around 15psi of boost on 31" tires. I'm about to send my block to the machine shop and just wanted to confirm the head would fit. From what I've been able to research I have a hydraulic block which should work? I noticed my head has 6 holes between the pistons that the block does not, I've also seen pictures of AAZ blocks that have these holes. Is this a problem? Do I need to get the holes machined into the block?

I was also curious if anyone knew what turbo this is and if it would be ideal for my setup?
