Re: Is there anyway and how hard is to fit a turbo

it'll cost loadsssss of money, even if you're doing all the work yourself. it's not just a simple case of bolting on a turbo and mapping..

Sell and buy something faster.

The t-jet engine can handle a hell of a lot more power than that, the essesse comes with 180 standard. Its still not worth it though really, just sell up and buy a tjet/abarth
