    it is but there's not much point, your engine has a higher compression ratio as its non turbo so you would be looking at changing pistons, possible rods, different inlet, turbo manifold, injectors ... the list goes on, much cheaper to buy a turbo'd car straight off.

    you could drop a complete turbo engine, ecu wiring loom ect but still cheaper and easier to but it done.

    Still the easiest way to get from 1.8 20v power to 1.8T power is just to change cars, if you don't want to swop cars for the upgrade, then I'd just live with N/A power, or you would be wasting £££'s for very little gains.
