Hi,

I own a 180sx 1996 sr20de and would like to turbo it do you guys think it is more cost effective to find a bolt on kit or to find a engine and do a engine swap.

thanks

engine swap's probably cheaper in the end, and will give much better performance...

Thanks guys for the quick response. Would you guys know any good workshops around Sydney to do the engine swap and the approximate amount to do the job.

Thanks again

yeah, go the swap for sure.
I know a place
Martin Engineering
he he he
Its really hard to say how much you should pay. I paid $600 labour and $1100 in parts to fit a DE to my navara but that was a custom fit. Rigoli wanted $3500.
but yours will be simpler so scrutinise everything the guy says.
after all that i did the turbo myself. F***ing mechanics!
