    Turbo Upgrade.

    Hi folks,

    I think i would like a turbo upgrade but what parts all need to be replaced.

    I have read about the K04 but would prefere to go bigger i think.

    Some people seem to be going for T28's but are these direct fits? Or does the manifold and stuff need replaced?

    Or what other options are available?

    I am after about 280bhp.

    Cheers.

    Look for a guy in Inverkeithing called Ralph Payne, He used to have a garage in Rosyth Naval base, but getting in can be quite tricky, he has a funny attitude to repairs sometimes so be warned, however, he's the Dawgs Danglies when it comes to repairing cars and performance upgrades, he has all the contacts to ensure that the job gets done properly to your specification....If Successful, you won't regret it I promise....That man built me an engine that was soooooooooo Sweeeeeeeeeeetttt in a 5pot, one of the best in fact!!!! He knows what he's talking about!!!!

    Good Luck!

    The GT28R thread may have some useful information for you.

    Beware though things do get expensive fairly quickly.

    Yeah what sort of costs are we talking about?

    And what all needs replacing.

    Since most of it comes from the states i do not want to miss anything.
