    need 2ltr turbo fitted

    please peeps i need some mega help

    right iam abit lost my car is fully modded on the out side of the
    car and soon to be inside along with a boot build.these are easy.

    my big problem is the engine.its a shity 1.6 8v mk4 2001
    and i need bigger and more power

    iam after a 2ltr turbo or more. ive been quoted £3500 for a 2ltr turbo
    this includes a rebuild of engine which they will supply
    and all the required parts fitting included

    is this a good price?? UV quoted me this but they seem stupid
    for example they put non heat prof glue on my mates bonnet
    vent TWICE so in the end i got my mate to fibre glass it for him.
    is there any where eles? and possibly cheaper??

    please help if you can thanks

    does that price include fitting?

    fitting would be the hardest thing, its not exactly a simple drop in engine swap alot has to be done,
    best person to ask would be norm29 as he has just swapped a 1.6 8v for a Z20LET so would be able to tell you exactly what is and isnt needed,

    if they're supplying the engine, rebuilding and fitting for that price they must of underestimated the job...and from what you've said, its best to take it somewhere where they know what they're doing

    ask UV whats involved with fitting the engine...and see if it concurs with what norm29 had to do to his

    £3500 ??

    Could you not save another couple of grand and buy a Factory Turbo?
