    Z20let conversion

    I have decided to go at my car in a Very Very Big way!!! i Have been approved for a loan so cash well spent it must be!!!

    How much hassle is it getting a Z20let into a 1.8 SXI astra on an X-plate??? I was told easy and hard by different people!!!

    Does anyone actually know or shall i ring Regal tomorrow :?:

    not sure how hard it will be but dont forget,

    uprated suspension and uprated brakes when you budget for having the work done.

    Also a word of advice once you have a price to have it all done add half on again as there will be things you need and want along the way.

    Well i thought a budget of 1500 toi fit would be enough as i will suply engine and most parts that can be done will be done by my dads mate nick and his friend who worked for regal.!! Therefor i wanted to see how easy it was really not cost

    However it would still go to regal to be set up and stuff so i will ring them tommorow me thinks

    i think if i was going to put a turbo in i would throw a red top instead..more tunable and you can get more bhp out of them

    Cheaper and easier - C20let. Bigger power available for less money. Obvious conversion then aswell. Would stand out better at shows

    But i am sure i read some ones post that because all mk4's are tech 2 they are all pretty much interchangeable!?!?!? I aint going to do it if it will cost me an arm and a leg - or if it will result in an unreliable car

    I use the car all the time and if i sacrifice reliabilty i am a tw*t!!!!

    You're changing the ECU with the transplant so Tech2 makes no difference. If I was starting from scratch building a Turbo I would go C20let, no doubt
