    Default answers needed regarding fitting a turbo to a 1.8

    hey guys. i know this sounds daft and has been mentioned but... i want a turbo on my 1.8 sri. how similar is the 2litre turbo and 1.8? if the manifold and sensors and stuff could fit couldnt i build a 2litre turbo but round a 1.8? also saw a turbo kit in one of the vx mags when i got the car for the 1.8 cant find it again though anyone heard of it. i know its stupit but please help i dont want a 2.0t ruins the purpose and insurance would prob b even worse but defeats the purpose. thanks

    You can indeed get a turbo kit for it but i'm sure it's about 5k

    Courtney do it for the above... Or you could put the extra to the insurance...


    There's is a reason we all dont have turbo's on our N/A cars...

    Its not as simple as just bolting on a manifold and turbo, there's a lot of internal engine work to consider such as different pistons to lower the compression, then you've gotta change the inlet system, fit an intercooler, get a custom ecu and have it mapped, new exhaust downpipe, basically its not worth bothering with, if you wanted a turbo you should have just bought one in the first place.

    Then there's the brakes...and suspension and not forgetting the totally-over-the-top insurance quote that you'll get for it! Forget it!

    To answer your original question - how similar are the 2.0T and the 1.8 - they don't particularly have anything in common over and above any other 4 cylinder petrol engines. The 2.0T is related to the 2.2, but not the 1.8.

    To be honest the insurance you'd pay extra on a "modified" car that wasn't designed for the turbo, plus all the parts you'd buy to build it would add up far more than buying and insuring a 2.0T that's purpose built in the factory. I can see the desire to make a one off - but makes no sense (although that kinda idea made perfect since when I was 20 years old lol).

    Best to buy a 2.0T and blow money on doing it up if you got some cash to burn...
