Welcome.

It would be cheaper, easier and more reliable to sell your 55sx and buy a GT if you wanted a Turbo.

I agree 200% with his advice, and i know!!!! The only reason to install a turbo kit would be uniqueness, you would need a very large investment just to get even with a stock Punto GT, and with little money the GT could get much more power .

The prices for the kits are around 1500pounds+labour


BTW: I can tell you didn't even search for this topic since there are a few stickies with it on
