DEFINITELY hold out for a donor car mate. too much of a risk buying parts separate IMO. ps, for the right car for the right money you should be looking furthur afield for a donor than local. I went from doncaster to birmingham for mine :)

yer im gonna hold on untill i find a donor car that drives :) gonna suck waiting but in the end when the job gets done it will be worth all the wait, as i guess a few people on here have waited and very pleased with the outcome. anybody done a t16 into a r200 here before or has it been to zeds only so far here?

I can put you in touch with a guy who will give you everything you need for the conversion for £600 ;)

Basically the whole front end of a coupe turbo, and you'd prob be able to hear the engine running beforehand :yes:
