    As per title :D

    I wanna look into cutting costs of upgrading to a new car and potentially save some money by upgrading the one i have, as i regularly return around 50mpg and it only costs £120 a year to tax, and the running costs are cheap.

    I have tried doing a bit of research, and there are rumours but nothing set in stone, that a pd 130/150 turbo would be a straight swap replacement on my motor. Would be nice if i could find someone who has done this.

    I realise if its the case i would probably have to swap the injectors and get a remap, but really it would be a cheap ugrade in comparison to buying hybrid or replacing car

    I know the 1.9 8v engine is quite un common on this forum but hopefully someone can shed some light

    And i have considered a remap but i know the pd105 has got a piss small turbo as standard and i think it wouldnt handle the extra boost from mapping to 140ish
