But no offense to Jono( or Adam) as his an imaculate example. But the cost involved in turbo'ing the 1.6 to get somewhat around 2.0l power in a low boost set up, is somewhat pointless imo. You may as well fit a 2.0l then turbo that.

Just seen your in braintree. Speak to phil ask him to take you out in his 2.0l (n/a not a turbo) you'll see how much better foundations it is.

As mentioned adding a turbo to the 1.6 isn't really worth it.

A 2.0 conversion is cheap/easy conversion and gives good power.

If wanting a turbo a 1.8 can be a little cheaper than a 2.0 but of course is more limited.

Yes go 2.0, and then turbo it later as its much cheaper and you will get a ton more power.

Cossie splitters look awesome.

yeah i'm buying a 1.6 zetec turbo but on a cost basis i wouldn't do it from scratch :lol:

2.0 will need pistons etc - 1.8 can be turbo'd on a decomp plate and around 10psi
