    Would be worth speaking to a member on here called 'GeordieBandit' as he's not long done the same thing though he has got the 5-stud hubs.

    Good thinkin but i cheated and paid someone to do all the work

    As Danny says, you could retain your 4 studs (im guessing its just so u can keep ur wheels???) but youd need to upgrade to 4stud 280 or much preferred 308mm (turbo spec) discs

    it would be far easier to ditch the 4studs and go for 5stud - then have the std 308mm front & 264mm rear

    fortunately i bought a coupe turbo and had the lot transferred over - only thing that remains of the old car is the seats, trim, chassis, body and a few wiring looms

    My advice would be to get a complete car if u can

    usually ppl would say get a salvage one but in all honesty, the prices of turbos have shot down lately - best of the bunch would be the coupes - a good one can be had for 2500-3000 if not less. u can then take ur time transferring the lot over.

    totally upto you.

    that'd be your best bet, get a complete car and transfer what you need over, sell what you don't use, it will eliminate the problems of missing parts that you may get when buying parts individually, also you may be able to hear the engine running, which is always nice when buying an engine!
