hi i could do with more power in my compact i have looked at turbos and super chargers but they seem really expensive for not much end result i have seen youtube video's of compacts with m3 engine's in them but no real description of how it was done i would like to go the route of the bigger engine if poss so if anyone has done this could do with advise i obviously no i would need ecu and loom but do i need the whole loom or just part of it do i need fuse box ect? does the engine fit on the monts of the car or do i need to modify some mounts? do i need the fuel pump from the fuel tank to deliver correct psi or can i use the 1.9 one obviously need to do engine and box so is the gear linkage the same and does it reach because i think the compact has shorter front end (but not sure) plus is the propshaft the same longer shorter bigger smaller lol as you can see need to no quite a bit plus if not an m power any chance of doing it with 2.5 or 2.8???:jaw-dropping
