GTV 2.0L TS to 2.0L 20Valve turbo
I have had my GTV 2.0l twin spark for about 5 years now and have been toying with the idea of making it faster, but before anyone says go and buy a V6. i dont want a V6 i want a unique car and something different. so i have come up with the idea of putting a fiat coupe 20 valve turbo engine into the GTV. i know it can be done and have seen video's on youtube of it. so i bought a coupe this weekend and an about to embark on this project car.
i was wondering if anyone out there has done this or people that have done projects like this with there cars as im after guidance from you guys on how you got around the issues you came across, for example: Keys and immobilisers, Engine ECU's, power steering pipes and other stuff like this.
other than that i thought i would share my experiance of the project on here so others would know what could and couldnt be done. hope you all enjoy!
