    There are no turbo kits available off the shelf from what I can gather for that car.

    So it would have to be custom made for it.

    Agreed, generally you wont be able to get a bolt on turbo kit and if you can it will be a low boost one. For high boost you are looking at having internals rebuilt, low comp pistons crank reworked much tougher head bolts, the list goes on...

    For low boost applications I would look at supercharging, as the torque and power delivery will be much more linear as opposed to waiting for a kick in the back thats only going to give you about the same power with a low boost turbo anyway...

    Have a Look at ESS Supercharger kits, Thats what I plan to do eventually...

    second what the grizzle says...ess twinscrew superchargers are the daddy and bolt on jobs..not messing around with engine internals and are more reliable than turbos..and no turbo lag..a-l tuning will do you a supply and fit for about £6k...looking at 0-60 sprints in the region off 5.2 secs..go nuts and get the next stage and your looking at 0-60 in 4.2.....certainely get too the shops quicker..is it really worth the extra boodle..or do you sell up and by an m3

    If you pit two setups against eachother the turbo can produce power sooner and nicer assuming the max power allowed is the same.

    But where can you find a bolt on setup that will do this... Unless we start to talk about kits that include a thicker head gasket to lower the compression ratio... But then you have to start questioning the reliability of the engine after this...

    And as mentioned the turbo will deliver more power quicker, but then are we talking a smaller turbo so that it can spool quicker? Which would in turn mean that we are back to talking about low boost & in the higher rev range the car will run out of puff... Which is why I prefer Supercharging for bolt on set-ups.

    Turbos will without a doubt produce more power and deliver it quicker if the engine is built for boost & is set up correctly which can cost silly money. Dont get me wrong I would love to turbo my car.

    But for a bolt on cheaper option that will still give a brilliant power increase I'd supercharge any day of the week! Also as mentioned, a supercharger will be more reliable than a bolt on turbo. Turbos are the one thing that I dont like playing around with when working with engines, Superchargers are much simpler...

    This is just my opinion though... I'm not a pro, just speaking from experience

    I was just talking about low boost SC setups and turbo setups that would be able to yield the same power output. In that scenario the turbo can produce power sooner as it will be smallish. It will of course not loose any more puff then a SC setup that makes the same power.

    The idea that a turbo setup is less reliable then SC does not compute. The whole idea of a kit made to bolt on is that everything has been taken care of in terms of long term usage. so a long as the owner does what he is supposed to do in regards to the usage of the kit. Then there can not be a SC will be more reliable.

    UK BMW fans seem to have seriously negative or lacking understanding of turbocharging.
    This is not directed at you ThE.gRiZzLe . While everywhere else around us, BMW fans enjoy it so much more.
