    Turbo conversion

    Does anyone have the site address for Courtney sport or a place who can put a Turbo on my car, I am just after some more info on the conversion as I am not happy with my 2.0 16v speed. Thanks

    Mark might be an idea to have a word with Craggy off this site as he's had a turbo put on a X18XE1 engine and they are very similar to yours. He may know somewhere else. For info his 1.8 puts out 250bhp but he has it switchable and runs at 200bhp normally.

    for the money you would be better of putting in a z20LET Mark or even a C20LET. Turboing the 2.0 16v does have some draw backs.

    I was just thinking the same Mat when I seen the price list lol. A new Turbo lump from Vauxhall would only be about £1000, but then you need a Turbo, ecu and all the other part. Fitting it is no problem .
