It will be possible to fit a turbo I would have thought but wouldnt be cost effective.

As for a 46bhp increase from a 125bhp (IIRC) NA engine I seriously doubt!!

Even 1.8T NonDBW's dont only just start to touch on a 46bhp increase from a standard 150bhp and they have boost levels increased to get near there.

As others have said, its would be best to sell up and find a 1.8T.

Does it come with the wiring loom and everything else to sort?.... AND im not sure but will there be issues with matching it to the transmission?

Lovely upgrade to do but again its still gonna be cheaper to go the 1.8T route and mod that!

Gary.... I'd say its possible to get near 400 with a charger yeah, but thats other stuff like cams and exhaust too tho.
