2.0(B5204T) to 2.3 or tuning possibilities?

Post by arturjarn1 »

Hey guys, so i have myself an italian 850R. Due to some tax laws, it has 2.0 20v 210hp(B5204T) engine in it. So ofc i want more hp, but how much hp can this engine take ? what the difference between b5204t and the b5234t? is it 1
possible to make it to 2.3 by using 2.3 crankshaft from k1 and hbeam rods and stuff like that? all help is welcomed and a picture of my jet!

The easieast way is to chip ecu and put a larger turbo.You can pull around 70hp from it just with a proper chip tuning plus larger turbo.
If you want more,that would require serious engine upgrade.
