    cost? sell ur car and buy a gsi or loadsa cheap coupe turbos out there for sale it will be more economical imo. However, would prob be more fun to do the engine conversion... leave the 1.4 badge on tho just to piss people off when you fly past them (i really need to grow up!!)

    i had a x14xe and changed it for a c18xe.. its basically the same block as a redtop. i done the conversion with a friend. i had to change the engine mounts as the 1.4 ones are in a different place.. as i done it myself it cost me in the region of £400 thats including the engine! it did'nt take much to wire it up either and i think the redtop is even easier!

    ill be putting a redtop or redtop turbo in my car next year hopefully
