    How do you define 'worth it'?

    For example, in monetary sense, Pete screwed himself royally converting his Coupé... but he did it because he wanted to and it was different. As a result, he ended up with a one-off car that everyone loved.

    I know plenty of people turbo-charging their 2.0 8v engines on MK2's. They could easily throw in a LET, but they choose to do it themselves and be different.

    I say go for it and have fun doing it ZLET conversions are getting boring and 10 a penny IN MY OPINION!

    Regal do a kit thats about £3k from what I remember.

    Do it to be different, do a engine conversion if you have spent loads on yours or sell yours and buy a turbo'ed car as it would be cheaper in the long run (As you get bigger brakes, exhaust etc etc)
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
