hey i got a 96 2.0 also and i got an aem cold air intake.Those are actually functional. i could actuallu feel the hp difference.
Try" goapr.com " for performance chip.Might have something you will like.thanks i have been looking on ebay for some stuff because it is cheap but im not sure if i trust it but i have been looking into a cold air intake, plugs and wires, exhaust, and maybe a chip if you know any sites, other than autotech and neuspeed that would be awsome

That website didnt really have anything for the MK3?
I know I know, your probably saying, 'Hey, what do you have coming in here and talking crap?" Well honestly, what i'm about to say, wouldnt' technically be called "talking crap" or "smack talking". To answer your question Stouwe96, if you look at the above quote, your first problem starts with the italics and bold printed word cheepest. The reason this being a problem is because cheap horsepower gains are just that, cheap! And yes, with an eBay special exhaust and intake you may open up 5-10+ horse's, your not doing your car any favor's by running cheap products.Hey i have a 96 2.0L just got it runnig good and i plan on adding some performance parts to it if some on could give me a few pointers on some of the cheepest HP gainers there are please let me know.
actually the ABA engine can handle about 14psi boost with ecu chip upgrade. But if you want to go with a turbo kit they are around $2100 and up so you might as well save up the $450 extra for JE forged pistons, and hone the cylinders, and replace the main, and rod bearings(this is what i am in the process of doing) check out www.autohausaz.com the cheapest OEM and OES parts available. but if you just want to turbo stay around 14 psi as safe measure and use a full synthetic oil. whats also nice is this block has actual oil squirters which keep the pistons cool and well lubed i know i type too much. if you plan on using nos with turbo you need pistons. but your buddy is wrong in this case. i had a KIA RX-V 1.6l stock with ecu and aftermarket turbo kit pushing 11psi 142mph top speed... mustangs hated me on the highway.....-- off topic a little --
according to aw4reel, these 2.0L 8V engines have a forged crank and rods... so will they hold up to a 10-15psi turbo nicely??? my buddy has a 84 SVO mustang, and he says that i shouldn't look at aftermarket turbos, as the engine can't handle them without forged pistons and stuff... (i guess maybe i just answered my question, since he said forged pistons, and this has rods and crank) Is this a bad idea to turbo these engines? I dont want to do extensive mods like engine swaps, i thought a turbo mod would be a good idea... ideas?
