    Default hybrid turbo and intercooler!

    Hi guys now not very sure about anything like this as have always had non turbo petrols and the diesels i have had i have never bothered with so.....

    Im interested in fitting a hybrid turbo to my 1.9cdti 120 but as i know nothing about them well apart from what have read on here.
    So i am wondering what the pros and cons are, where is best to get them, how much does it cost and also what else do i need like intercooler etc.

    Has anyone on here fitted a one to the 120? And if so what sort of gains should i expect

    Sorry for all the questions guys but as i say never bothered with turbos before and want to understand everything thats involved with doing this cos dont just ljke handing things over to garages lol

    Many thanks

    Stu

    Vehicle : Vauxhall Vectra Hatch

    Trim : SRI with added X-Pack

    Engine : 1.9 16v 150

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : Near 100K

    Default

    Would it not be cheaper to buy a 150 and have it boxed? Probably faster than a 120 with a hybrid
