Cossvaux (http://www.cossvauxdirect.co.uk), or there are people on here that will do it for less money (and do a great job!)... Beardy, J100RSA, or Lee Mitchell...

Works for me... http://www.cossvauxdirect.co.uk/main.htm

To be honest there's not much info up there, and I can't remember how much they charge... Their phone number is on there though for Monday

Have you already got the engine? Also, which turbo engine are you thinking of putting in -- the most common conversion will be the C20LET from Calibra Turbo's, etc...

Also if you're 18 (?) I'd have a good think about insurance before doing the conversion -- 2.0 16v Turbo's don't tend to go down too well with insurers when you're under 21....

Um, a 2.0 16v Turbo engine has 84 more bhp than a 5 GTT, plus it's a conversion -- it'd be a hell of a lot more... It's a 1.4 Turbo vs a 2.0 Turbo...

Plus it would do 0-60 in about 2 seconds less

In standard form (standard 2.0L turbo i mean) about 204bhp and 0-60 in high 5's... providing you could stop wheel spinning...

Do you want a turbo put on your current 1.4 corsa or?

ur best of waiting a couple of years if u wanna turbo ur corsa. u could go out anfd buy a R5 and insurer pretty cheaply for the speed they are, but u will be constantly havin to fix it if u dnt look after it well, then again. if you spend a few thousand on it ud get it in the 5 secs easily.
