    Complicated enough for it not to be worthwhile. On top of the basic mechanical aspects, you would need to sort the ECU out, and all the sensors .etc that are needed, may not be present in the existing ECU. its really not worth p1ssing about with...just get a 1.8T

    Also the compression ratio is higher on the N/A engine, so pistons would need to be changed .etc
