    you looking to put a turbo engine into a non turbo car?

    Its doable, been there done that, but there are quite a lot of differences.

    Wiring loom, ECU,altitude sensor, exhaust, cat, turbo,intercooler and bracket and associated pipework, some water pipes change too. There is probably more its been years since i did it.

    All of this is assuming the 2 vehicles are similar ages too, as the car side of the wiring changes between years also so the engine loom may or may not plug into the car, if you get all that done, you then need to recode the dash/immo to allow the engine to run and then recode it as a turbo engine with Vag-com
