has he destroyed his sump yet? Cause the 620Ti sump has an alloy sump and is deeper than the 220.

It will fit, but its going to be a pain in the back side due to the immobilization of the 5AS in your car. The wiring loom will be very different and need to be custom made to fit.
You'll need an entire coupe turbo as a donor car due to using the subframe etc.

Basically if you're planning on doing it yourself, its going to be an utter ball ache.

If you look up Sie on this forum, he had his mk3 converted to a turbo, but the cost of the insurance may shock you. he's paying almost 2 grand as most companies don't really like conversions.

not yet i dont think anyway. this is the car i'm on about,


some of you might of heard of a guy called Granty from Lynn, he used to have a MG meastro turbo, now got a 420 GSi running a 600Ti lump as well, he told me about those probs you have just said. but i think he got round it somehow, cant remember how he said though.

yeh its a well sweet car, totally one off interior, he did it all himself. he used to have a 220Tomcat with N2O, red one with ferrari rear lights.
