    Would it not just be easier to buy the Coupe turbo? Same engine as the gsi i believe?
    Might defeat the object but thats what id do personally.

    as above, may aswell buy a coupe turbo, with high spec, and sell parts from the gsi to claw back some money?

    I think the only things that wont fit will be the back seat. Everything else should more or less go straight in. I'm not 100% sure if the rear spring rates are correct for the Coupe but if nothing else it will just sit a bit lower.

    You are in a good position having a full Gsi to strip. I'd pick up a cheap w-reg Coupe for about £1500 as its engine conditon wont matter. Mind you will need the fuel system from the Gsi also, I'm told its different to the n/a cars.

    They will, just need to fit the coupe weather strip on the top of the door cards.

    Exhaust should be the same, except for the back box, it would be a bit shorter.

    Everything in the List should fit bar the Rear Door Cards as im sure they are different on the coupe but i may be wrong! and as SQMan said exhaust should fit but the backbox may be a few inchs short!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED
