turbo

hey everyone. this is just a question and nothing else. what would i have to do/buy to turbo charge my starjet engine?
to my knowledge i would need
a turbo obviously
an intercooler
larger/ more efficient radiator
an ecu remap (which cant happen yet on the starjet)
am i nearly right?
im nearly definately not going to do it unless i win the lottery but a list of neccesary mods in order to turbocharge an engine would be great as ive always wondered.
thanks

Re: turbo

Waste of money, why not just buy a Tjet? Would be a lot cheaper....

Yes your not far off, but you would need to add work on the drive train (gearbox/clutch) and possibly internal engine parts depending on the application. You would also need to factor in the oil feed for the turbo, so custom made inlet and exit back into the sump. Not an easy task!!

Re: turbo

iirc, the T-jet isnt just a starjet engine with a turbo because the bottom end isn't strong enough.

Re: turbo

Change the compression, internals, loadsastuff. The Tjet isnt just a starjet that fiat have lobbed a turbo on there is more to it than that. Also have a search its been covered on here plenty of times before.
