    Pretty sure you can't just fit a turbo to a z16xe, especially not a diesel one.

    Think its engine conversion or stick to what you have.

    you cannot just put a turbo on pal i looked at it and the diesel manifold wont fit if you want more power the easiest thing to do is supercharge it the supercharger from the mini fits where the aircon pump sits .

    Or pay Regal £4500 for a turbo conversion to the Z16XE engine...

    But it's cheaper to drop a ZLET in and hit 200bhp with ease and oodles more torque...
