you are 16, your never going to get insured on a turbo conversion until your atleast 19/20, and even then it'll still be sky high!

not really cost effective, or reliable option

if your after power, you'd be better off with a 2ltr under the bonnet. Plus it would be easier to insure an 2ltr XE lump than it would a turbo conversion.

He's right about that, ive tried myself to set up a trade policy for my company, and say that you want two 18 yr olds on high perf. cars, etc. and they'll say no straight away!

And most have restrictions that you can only drive them for work purposes, e.e mainly 9-5, etc!

Go for it mate, the only reason everyones saying no is because their be jealous when u fly passed them.. My mate did it on his GSi. The manifolds, turbo, pipes ecu, intercooler etc all fit on to your car from the let engine. You just have to make the room. Only thing u cant do set the engine up, let the garage do that. Your looking at 1500k tops.

plus different cam, strengthened bottom end, a turbo fuel pump, the list is endless, just save yourself hassle and get a 2.0 turbo from a cally.
