Hi, I've been researching and planning fitting a turbo for the last few months, so enough of the procrastination I'm ready to start.
The reason for this starting thread, is the upgrade I wish to complete is not going to be full of coloured anodised aluminium or bloated fast and furious intercoolers with multi coloured silcone and very noisey dump valves. The aim is to build a mild performance increase making a already good car better, improving the 1.6 bottom end dull performance, and of course it is a challenge!
I will use stock parts where possible, used if necessary. I will update this thread as I cross each mile stone, some of the parts I have not seen mentioned on any forums so it could be the first time it has been tried, who knows.
I'm shooting for 160bhp for a monkey or there abouts. The only extra will be a map, even then I might not need one, engine is mid life with two cam belt breakages in its life so it's not new by any means, but we all know how cheap replacements are if needed.
I should start getting pictures uploaded In a week or so.
I must be bonkers as I already have a M3 as my second ride.
