    Turbo conversion

    Hi all, I am looking to do a Turbo conversion to the old c20ne engine but my question is about after market ECU's.

    I am looking to find out if it is possible to have 2 settings say 1 setting for everyday pottering aroun at roughly 0.4 bar boost set up and then 2nd setting at say 0.7-9 bar boost.

    If it is possible, anyone have experience and recommend a certain make.


    Cheers all

    It will almost certainly be easier and cheaper to simply fit a C20LET or Z20LET (or LER, LEL, LEH). An ECU and wiring required for such a conversion may in fact cost more than a second hand C20LET with ECU and loom.

    Yeah true and might be the way I go in end.....But I like to do this as its not done so much as the LET's engines.

    Is it actually possible though to run a aftermarket set up with 2 settings with a button or switch to go back and forth on????
