You probably need a “Stand Alone” ECU to make it work.
Also need a up to 2 Bar MAP sensor.

With a project like this, keeping the costs down by using & modifying/hacking free parts is the way to go.

The parts may be free, but the knowledge you'll gain will be priceless .

Re: Panda mk2 1.2 turbo, help

What kind of power are you looking for?

Think about using T-jet parts to keep costs down.
The 1.2 16v and the 1.4 t-jet are pretty similar.

Maybe you can use the exhaust manifold,
-the smaller vl37/vl38 turbos from the 120 hp GP, and Bravo (should be pretty easy to find one second hand, a lot of people have upgraded to the bigger vl 36).. this turbo is ok to about 140 hp on the t-jet, with standard 95 Octane petrol.
- the ecu should work ..but might be better/easier to get the Megasquirt to work.
