    conversion is the word ur lookin for i think - unless u just wanna discuss engines

    2.0T is easiest and more worthwhile out of the ones u listed

    best off buying a donor car maybe with rear end damage etc and transferring the lot across

    another option is to buy the engine/box/loom etc from Turbo Chris on here - usually in the region of 1500 notes - few other things you may need to upgrade like brakes etc but this is easy enough

    being a 1.8 SXi im guessing its the non ABS version and therefore 4 stud = if so, then upgrading to 5 stud and ABS using the gear from a donor turbo car would make life so much easier

    i would seriously advise the donor car route and lift the lot across if u have the 4stud model - if u have 5 stud then engine/g.box/looms/brakes may be sufficient
