When the car's big ends went I priced up a few differant types of convertion and engine replacement. Then thought about scrapping the car. I decided to get the 2.5 done but with the low ratio gearbox of the Type R would also have to do the gearbox and diffs. Turbo injectors and ECU would also have to be on the list. So ended up spending 13,000 on a car worth about the same, but already had 10,000 worth of mods done to it. So car ended up costing me about 40,000. Will be selling it soon and will only get about 14,000 for it so will take a big loss on this one....

Tons of differant turbo's for these cars The TD05/6's go 16, 18, 20, then are mishmashed with other parts to go bigger. But you must be carefull to large a turgo give just to much lag. Best check the spool time before desiding...
See http://www.andyforrestperformance.co.uk/16307.html for a good range of turbo's
