    Very Low boost should be possible but you'd be daft not to look at fuelling upgrades and something to handle the timing differences.

    We get asked this question a lot so have a look at this thread which covers the basics. I have to admire your ambition though!:D And I hope you pull it off.
    Cheap turbos can be purchased from breakers yards which are ideal for a try it and see type project.:bigsmile:

    Please note that I don't think it is worth adding a turbo to an old car with a small capacity engine. There is nothing stopping you but the money and hassle will just not be worth the power gain you get. It is better to just buy a better car for your tuning project.:confused:

    Adding a turbo is a major engineering task and without a kit with full instructions and all the parts you need there is a big risk of blowing up the engine. Expect to spend 50 hours upwards on a project of this type. This is not the sort of modification you should undertake unless you are mechanically competent and know what you are doing.
    It is worth looking at superchargers as these are generally much easier to install than a turbo is.
