    You should start with a 2.5l motor. Imo, if you do it with a 2l you're selling it short.

    To connect you will need:
    Exhaust manifold
    Turbo
    Refabricated exhaust from turbo down
    Oil feed for turbo (braided line from block)
    Oil return for turbo (weld a flange onto the sump)
    Water lines for turbo (t off heater lines)
    Intake pipes from turbo to intake manifold through an intercooler
    Relocate pcv before turbo or into a catch can
    Intercooler
    Tune (i think you can reflash your ecu)

    id rather keep the 320i as there arnt many around and there becoming rare im swaping my pug 306 for a 328i sport so gonna use as my daily car and mod the 320 only because there becoming hard to find ive tried to find the 320 saloons and not had much luck and plus why would i spend money on an engine when ive already got one ? and yea i like to be different as everybody dose the m3 engine in there bmw or transplant bigger ones in because everybody say just drop a bigger engine in that's why im not doing it lol im just stubbern. the lads who have been advising me are part of my car club and when i first mentioned it they were like yea top idea but the guy who said its good idea was realy just after me buying his m50 engine to get rid out of his garage. see im after a car that has a bit of power plus im doin the interior and also be doin a boot build with 4 12" subs built in so for me its not all about the power but a bit of everything and thanks for all the advise ive taken all on board and atleast ulot are true full

    yes its easier as you don't have to mess about with the exhaust manifold but will still cost thousands

    Don't let us put you off doing it, if you want to - go ahead, it'll be great.
    Just don't expect it to be all 'bolt on'.
    There will likely be a fair amount of welding and fabrication.
    (I'm yet to come across a true 'bolt on' turbo kit for BMW's)
    Have you got any more details on the manifold and the 'kit', I'll happily give you impartial advice on what to expect when fitting it.

    Also - research the engine management side of things a bit more too.
    Getting a re-map might not be as simple as you'd expect.
    You'll really need to speak to someone who has experience in this area - most 'chip tuning' companies will run a mile.
    I run a completely standalone engine management system, which is great and very versatile, but a lot of it I really don't understand myself!

    Ill try get some pics of my mates nissan diesel (td42) that he just turboed. He started with a factory turbo manifold and turbo for a td42 but the rest is custom as his was factory non turbo. Will give you more of an idea.

    He did all the fabrication and install himself and it still wasn't cheap. Just the braided oil line feed was a few hundred pounds
