    Drive shafts
    ECU etc
    Interior and Exterior looms as mine isnt drive by wire

    Will the fuel pump work? would imagine a larger unit woul dbe needed?

    Intercooler and pipework
    Throttle body and inlet manifold
    Exhaust manifold and turbo
    Exhaust

    May need the alternator - not sure of the 1.8 one would be compatible.
    Air con rads and system if you want it.
    Rad and fan assembly

    Also budget for a cambelt/water pump change while you are at it I'd have thought.

    Make sure the donor comes with AFM, MAP sensor, DISS pack, injectors, and fuel pressure reg.
    Crossover pipe and air box etc.
    Might need a fuel pump too.

    ive already got air con are the compressors the same fitting???
    Ive fitted a 100amp alt already, just hope it wil fit the Z20,

    I was taking into account the inlet and outlet system with engine.

    The Z20 GB has cable linkage? Easy enough to change?
