Its not only the turbo parts you would need but also a different cylinder head as the compression would be too high. Plus getting the ECU programed may be difficult.

Ahh stuff it then, thought it might have been worth it but im not playing aronud with the cylinder head..

I have no idea what id need to do so i thought id ask, but least now i know its not worth it :)

I recon the new sponsers might know a thing or two about the ECU though, but i cba :)

Apart from the cylinder head and the ECU it would also require a suitable exhaust manifold, a control system for the turbo and induction plumbing and an intercooler if you want one. The injectors may also have to be upgraded, etc It's not just a question of bolting on a few bits I'm afraid.

Oh i know i just wanted to know what needs doing to get one on my motor as i have no idea.. But i want to learn things like this!

Im getting a new exhaust for mine anyway, im off down on tuesday for a quote with motorsave suppliers to see what kinda price they can come up with, i want a performance exhaust that sounds nice and will go with how my cars going to look in a few weeks.

James, isn't your car warrantied? If it is, make sure you do nothing to invalidate the warranty ;)

Just my opinion, and please dont take offence, Your not going to get many performance gains from a 1.2 engine in any car.

I'd save the mod money in a savings account and have more to spend on your next car.

Modified cars inc just a air filter and a exhaust are generally harder to sell when your done with it.

If you want power, Sure theres turbo's.... But theres no replacement for displacement ;)
