    Is it possible to convert a vw polo 1.4i to the polo 1.4 tsi since they have similar engines?

    Anything is possible but the work is expensive, you have to change the internal engine components to get a lower compression ratio for starters. It's much easier just dropping in the Turbocharged engine and fits on the standard engine mounts etc...

    It would probably be cheaper to just find and buy a TSi model.

    I think this is true but I think I'll appreciate it more if I do it on my own
