    Good price?

    full engine/ turbo conversion parts from a 1998 2l turbo coupe write off 2,650.

    good or bad price?

    If u wanna modify ur X16SZR (and its a route ive considered with mine - well sort of) then I wouldnt turbo it Id personally whack it on TBs or bike carbs.

    Saying that the line I was considering goin down was a nice old skool 2.0 8v (20SEH) on throttle bodies. Defo gonna be different and more practical rather than attemptin a DIY job on ur 1.6 as AFAIK theres no off the shelf kits like u get in the Dbilas range.

    As for what u need then you're gonna have to get rid of the F13 for starters. If u have a look at the Dbilas off the shelf kits it might give u some kind of idea as to what youll need......good luck!!!!!!

    I really cant offer much more help Im afraid - all i would say is it'll be a lot better to stick in another lump and turbo that instead of farting around with the existing one.

    Just my personal opinion of course

    Ha i can totally agree, easiest and cheapest option is a 2L turbo lump or similar, even an n/a engine. i noticed there isnt anything off the shelf for the car, thats pritty much with every kind of mod for this engine. Would mean a lot of custom work. Personally i was hoping that it would just be the manifolds which would need to be custom? with most stuff being straight fit?
