    Save your money and spend it on a 325 engine/complete car instead.

    yeah shane..you need too be really careful when messing about with turbos on a naturally aspirated engine....your pockets will end up empty wih th upgrades youd need too do elsewhere on the car and itd probably never be 100% anyway.better buyin a bigger engined car.

    A decent turbo kit from someone like Edelbrock will set you back £2500. Then you need to think about forged internals - Lets say another £1K. Then lets talk about fuelling - New fuel pump and bigger injectors at the very least. Then you need to fit it all, or have it fitted - I'm not even gonna guess at this price, bechause mechanics near me seem to be charging £55 an hour. Then there's the ECU remap and rolling road session, as well as the software to tune it with. Shall we say another grand? Quite simply, if you were to do it properly with name brand components, and can't do any of the work yourself, you could quite easily spend £5K - £6K on a Turbo conversion that'll only make £180BHP - 190BHP.. For that kinda money, you're almost in E36 M3 teritory..

    Honestly, adding a snail to your car doesn't end with the cost of a kit you saw on eBay
