    Not without spending thousands of pounds no. You'd be better off buying a 2.0T and selling the 2.2 if you want a turbo car.

    Just for starters, you need turbo, seperate ECU, all wiring looms, manifold, intercooler and associated pipework and a hell of a lot more and you can't just transplant the 2.0T turbo onto it as the ECU won't run it.

    Plus water and oil lines to and from the turbo, and you'd probably need to reduce the compression ratio.

    Tiy tried the z22SE forum?

    It's probably do-able but you'd need your turbo and associated hoses, intercooler, injectors, fuel pump, manifold and exhaust, some form of management, whether you could get the stock ECU mapped or simply run a piggyback or standalone ECU.
    Wouldn't be kind to your wallet that's for sure, with the price of 2.0T's (complete car not just the engine) now you might aswell just buy one of those!

    I agree with matt0785. Retro-fitting a Turbo is pretty messy. Fitting a Supercharger is much simpler. You can buy Eaton superchargers, the type used on the Mini Cooper S if I remember correctly, which are pretty self contained. They have their own oil and internal clutch. You need to supply a direct drive from the crankshaft and lots of mapping and calibration.

    I looked at lots of options but opted for a 2.0T model Much simpler option.

    Vehicle : SRi


    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    Not a problem on the SE as its a straight bolt on swap, well near enough, but the YH's has swirl flaps in the manifold and unless you can find anyone that can map that out of the stock ECU then its going to be in constant limp. The inlet ports are totally different on the YH to the SE and NET as well so a custom manifold would need to be made, although as I mentioned earlier I believe the zorst ports are the same.

    As said though, Vocky and Atom X are the guys to speak to although Atom believes Forced induction is the work of the devil LOL.
