the best way would be to find a scrapped GSi and take the engine, gearbox, loom etc etc out.

although tbh i couldn't be bothered with all that. it's not like you're putting a 200 bhp turbo or V6 lump in.

why not consider getting your 1.8 turboed, or nitrous? :)

i couldn't tell you what you would gain exactly, but it would be at least 50bhp. it would depend on size of turbo, amount of boost etc

give Courtenay Sport a ring (01692 404313) www.courtenaysport.co.uk :)
