buy a Rover 220 coupe and you have all the parts on the coop to do the conversion then send the cars upto AA Autosport and they will begin the conversion cost should be about 3k at most. YoungY, jambon13, hoax have done this.

Search> "Turbo Conversion"

Several topics on it + look at AAautosport section for a fixed price quote.

Turbo/Supercharing the 160

Talon have developed a supercharger kit for the VVC (in conjunction with Turbo Technics) but prime market must be the Elise boys, so expect it not to be cheap. Pretty sure last time I looked on their site they had a 200Vi VVC up and running with a supercharger

Alternatively Reyland motorsport do an adaptor to run a VW/Audi turbo lump on your PG1 box, or they do the whole conversion I believe. They had their demo car at the Rally Car day at Castle Combe last year and it was pretty impressive on the track. All looked pretty factory under the bonnet too.

intelligent tuning also do the conversion, for I believe about a grand, but that doesnt include the additional work that AA would do, its just for the swap over, so it depends what u want. if your working on a very low budget you could just buy a full running donor car and do it yourself.

Turbo

£500? Shame you are the other end of the country from me. I'd seriously think about having one done to save the dead engined R200 BRM I have.

Is there anyone near or in the West Country able to do this?
