    engine swap

    hi all. i'm new to this site but i need of some help. i have a 1.8 astra sport (1999) and need more power. i need some advice on mods. i dont want massive power power but a fair bit more than it produces now. i would like to do all the myself and wondered what route i should go down. also is a turbo conversion practical. cheers for the help.
