Turbocharging aussie 2.0ts 147
i should be buying a 147 2.0ts (2001ish) sometime in the next few months, and turbocharging is something i'm definitely considering doing. i'm in melbourne, and noticing the $12000-14000 costs quoted has certainly dulled the dream a little. i guess this post is more directed at the aussie members..
i have a decent list of questions to ask... if anyone can answer any of them in any sort of detail, it would be appreciated
i was just wondering, surely a kit installed in the uk for ~au$6000 equivalent can't be much more here?
why is it so costly?
has anyone investigated buying parts separately/getting custom pipework done here in melbourne?
what other supporting modifications are required for a modest setup (6-8psi seems to be appropriate?) camshafts? ecu remap/piggyback? cylinders heads, valves, gaskets, etc..?
is installing parts really that hard? how difficult is it to bolt on the manifold, intake/outlet pipework, turbo, water/oil lines, etc..?
