    Bigger Turbo

    Would it be possible (without TOO much hassle) to fit a bigger turbo to my engine? MK4 astra 1.7DTi, Y17DT ?
    If so, what engine would i be looking at getting one from?

    Cheers

    Im not that clued up on DTs but maybe consider contacting a turbo company and seeing if they can do any work to the inside of the turbo / re-work it.
    hybridize it!!

    Yea, iv got the Izuzu, not the GM.
    Will it definately bolt straight on?
    Would it be worth the hassle as well?
