i was wondering if it was possible, and if so how much would it cost, im quite happy at the moment as it seems quite nippy at the minute so i have the time to save up

far as i know yes, but it will cost, since you will need to uprate the liners, pistons, etc etc to handdle the turbo properly, not to mention a new ecu.

are you set on turboing it or can you not just move up to higher volume motor? 1.8VVC =D

well i dont really want to spend silly amounts of money doing it, ive heard that finding a decent 1.8 engine is like tryin to find a flyin pig, i just want a little extra BHP so i dunna get beaten by the little chavs in there 1.2's, doesnt usually happen but those damn new shape corsa's are quick :lol:

look on ebay. there are plenty of half dead rovers without MOT etc with stealable engines.

would be much cheaper to drop a 1.6 or 1.8 in
