The moment you mention 2.0 Turbo to your insurer, theyll either laugh or charge you the earth.

You *can* put a turbo on it, but obviously the 2.0 litre engine with a turbo would be much quicker...

You just want your car to go PTSHHH?

The corsa would be looking at 5s with the LET. Getting a GTT to get in the 5s will take some doing.

Theres no replacement for displacement at end of day, so if you go ahead and turbo your 1.4 your still going to lack mid range grunt. Until the turbo spools up it will feel like it does now. Because the LET is a 2.0 it will have mid range grunt and will pretty much have power throughout the rev range.

The 2.0 16v Turbo engine is known as a C20LET (engine code), hence people call it a LET...
