no its for me so i know can understand thats involed in makeing a N/A car into a Turbo and can it be done cheap
as for the people who know me, i am fitting a new engine into the corsa and i have found another car with a turbo manifold and stuff which fits, so was looking into what work was needed.

as for 1.2 turbos, there was a bloke on here from Brazil a bit back who was doing them for 1200 (i got him down to 900 saying do me cheap as first in UK)

i basic want to leave the engine standard (all inside etc) maybe a few head gaskets to lower the compression abit (just what Courntney do on there Low Psi Turbos) and run a low Psi turbo unit.

so from what i am reading :-
-all the turbo set up off the other car
-make a oil feel and return
-use a intercooler
-get a Custom ECU and Loom

anything else really, i am not arsed about the engine going pop as i fancy having a go at this one, and see what happens

Find out the bodge Courtenay do for the fueling on their conversions.

You'll find the ecu will cost about a k all in.

If you wanted to rebuild the engine and spend 450 on pistons you would get much more out of it.
