    To be fair it'd be margin cheaper and Youd get way more gains from a 2.8 conversion with a m50 inlet ,ul be seeing 220bhp and cost margi ly less the trying to turbo a 1.6 100hp engine , I'd at least start with a 318is with 150 Bhp to start with

    Turboing a 1.6 can be done and I'm sure someone will guide u shortly on what u need , it won't be cheap though so be prepared to pay a lot

    Hope this helps

    As above the cost of turbo'ing and that crappy 1.6 engine and keeing it reliable just doesn't add up, better to put a bigger engine as said

    I looked into this last year, overall costs to do it properly and keep reliability were ludicrous!

    Unless you're willing to spend into the thousands on it and a lot of work its an unrealistic idea, 328s are so cheap to buy you're better off just buying a bigger engined model

    They were left outside motor developments workshops in Munich, where the employees would take a leak on them, The blocks had all heated and cooled so many times in their lifetime, that they had lost all internal stresses. BMW reworked them, put in Liners, new heads, Cranks, shells, bearings and they turbo charged them. They made 1500BHP yes 1500 not 150...they were way more powerful than todays F1 cars with their narrower tyres, less downforce, and safety equipment.

    Don't slag off BMW 1600 engines, no matter how many BHP they make......they are all little Gems
