2000 Daewoo Lanos S 1.6L

Postby tfulton11b » Sat Mar 23, 2013 8:38 am

Hello, I'm new to this forum. I have been searching and searching for performance parts for my car. I live in the United States and besides a few bolt on like cold air intake and a few chips I can not find anything. I would love to re-do the internals and few extra mods (cam, intake, etc.) and build my engine then eventually when its ready and I am bored with current mods install a turbo. Any info or internet sites that you know of to order such parts and any info on parts in general to buy would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
Trevor

Hi Trevor, welcome to the forum

Well, you've come to the right place. There is a ton of experience and willingness to help by the members here.

To get straight to the point, I have specialized in developing and selling performance products for GM/Opel/Daewoo for nearly ten years. Virtually anything you could possible want is available and it really comes down to budget. There are options for simply upgrading the standard internals or going fully forged items.

Well budget isnt much of an issue as this will be a slow process build. I really just wanna have my car performance ready. I want to strengthen all the internals to have it ready for a turbo to puch around 8-13psi (big range i know, just depends on where my car stands at that time) as well as forged internals i would like some other power adders increasing hp leading up to the boost i.e. cams, heads, and intakes. Thanks again

That's actually not a lot of boost. I've seen the standard 1.6 16v manage well at that level with no mods. The factory rods are forged so they will handle quite a lot of abuse. Unless you plan on 20psi or so I wouldn't worry about aftermarket internals.

I would consider ARP rod bolts, coating the factory pistons with ceramic tops and low friction skirts and then increase the ring gaps for boost. I would also suggest polishing the crank and balancing the rotating assembly.

That type of setup would be safe for 15psi+ and cut the cost in half.

Doing a less expensive bottom end means you can focus your buget on the cylinder head. In my opinion, the head will achieve the biggest results.

The most affordable options I've seen actually use the factory cast manifold. I've seen the non-turbo outlet cut off and the turbo flange welded on. Another option is making a U-pipe that positions the turbo like a 'top-mount' turbo system.

The Lanos doesn't offer a lot of room for turbo placement so there are to two things I would suggest before anything.
- Relocate the oil filter from the left side of the block to the right side of the block. I'll try and illustrate this if needed. I have an example from Team Insight on the WTCC Lacetti which is simple and awesome.
- Relocate the radiator & A/C fans to the front of the radiator (or A/C condensor). A custom fan shroud will be needed and may require two new slim-fans.

Those things will give you a lot of room to where you can mock up the turbo location with everything still together and the car functional. Then you can decide what's best.

Other options are available, some involve modifying an already available manifold and of course custom. My suggestions above stand for any direction you go. If you want to make a tubular manifold I sell the header flange if you needed. I'm trying to finish a couple header projects right now but if you like I could probably take on one more.

sounds like good advice, my only input is:

1 ) The build up of a 2.0L is cheaper in the long run, it will make more reliable power and it is a direct drop in.
2 ) Be sure to focus money on sensors and engine management ( wideband O2, EGT, standalone ECU )

Before starting, is your car a manual 5spd or an automatic ?

Your gearbox/transmission are the main limits to maximum power levels.

Are you are mechanically inclined ?
