    Yep, take a look at Regals web site. But at £3800 and the rest, its not cheap.

    Better to trade in your 1.8 for a 2.0T I would have thought

    Turbo conversion is major work = £££s. Sometimes supercharger conversions are relatively straightforward, but still talking about thousands £s for one of those too, probably.
    ^So yeah- I'd save up a little and just get a 2.0T, first as last. Have you seen how low the prices for these cars are now?

    I have . Unless you're into engine reconstruction, better to get a car with a purpose-built turbocharged unit, like the one in the 2.0T, which is effectively a Saab unit, and Saab have been at or near the head of the field in turbocharging mainstream petrol engines for what seems like ages.

    Same Engine as the 2.0T but with a longer stroke so the Turbo parts can just bolt on.

    Supercharging the 2.2 has been done quite a few times now, go on, be the first in a vec C

    No need to lower the compression ratio on the 2.2 even? Be surprised if that was the case - obviously can be done, but you've got to know what you're doing.
    If reliability is a major consideration, have to agree with the other post about the Saab/GM 2.0T unit. What Saab don't know about petrol turbo engines, simply isn't worth knowing
