    Default adding a turbo kit to 1.8 sxi

    hi there i would like it if someone may be able to help me i have done alot of modding to my veccy now but it has the looks but just does't have the power now i have looked at regal they do a turbo kit for it but they want £4000 for it an that does'nt include big brakes to stop ya
    i've had it remapped give a little more power but nothing near what i looking for,
    does any one know weather you can fit a astra vxr engine into the veccy or an other engine i know that a edition 100 engine would fit but the are like rocking horse s**t to get hold of

    so can anyone help thanks

    as above mate find yourself a nice low milage 2.0t engine will be better off in long run and more power i would think.

    How much was it, if thats ok?

    I'm close to Stafford so might get it done. Is it much of an improvement over a standard 1.8? Smoother/faster etc

    Remapping a 1.8 N/A is pointless unless running big cams or boddies etc,,,which i expect not...was of cash on the 1.8 IMO...

    Check salvage sites on the web mate...surely their are 2.0t's breaking
