I was wondering if anyone knew of, or could point me in a direction for, info about converting the EA211 1.4 TSI engine into something without the turbo & Direct Port Injection?
It's a bit of a long story, but I am not too familiar with the new VW stuff, and am researching options/paths to kind of make this engine more of a simplified "old school" unit. I am open to carbs or EFI, depending on a few things. The target is a simple tidy install, with as few parts as possible, for as reasonably inexpensive as possible.
If we have to strip the engine all the way down, and just use carbs & a standalone ignition box, that isn't the end of the world.
It would be pretty nice to still use the existing Fuel Injection & Coil On Plugs, and add some throttle bodies (either ITBs or a single TB & plenum)... but that is starting to appear as a tougher goal.
We are looking at a MegaSquirt or similar control setup, but those apparently cannot run Port Injection.
Is there another fuel pump out there that will bolt in place of the existing 200 Bar one, and run a more conventional pressure? One of the target goals is to not use an alternator, so an electric pump isn't really desirable... so anything mechanical is possible.
Also, does anyone make cams for this engine yet? I know generally a tuner just tweaks the variable aspect to what they need, but we are not opposed to a traditional fixed cam, either.
So anyway, I know I wrote & asked a lot, but any & all info is appreciated.
