Thumbs up 318 touring ti

Hey everyone.
Just been speaking to my mechanic.
Have decided its time for a bit of boost.
Anyone done a turbo conversion before?
Not specifically on this car, but any info would be appreciated.
Have quite a good understanding of adding turbo,
but not to sure how far i need to go.
i.e. injector rail, prop shaft etc.
Any comments appreciated.

No one is going to do the research for you. Please feel free to follow up once you have some ideas. Also there is a FI specific forum where once you have an idea of what kind of turbo you want to run you can ask some questions. I'll go ahead and tell you there is no kit for your car. Others have done it and if you have a lot of money so can you.

Im only thinking about a small turbo, with quite low boost,
obviously enough to gain some power , but i dont particularly want to blow the engine.
I think i will able to produce my own manifold and brackets to house the turbo.
But wasnt sure if i would need an oil cooler and an intercooler
Im only looking to achieve about 25 - 30 bhp( sounds lame but it will do for now)
I have a friend who will help me with the exhaust, and my mechanic is confident he can fit the oil feeds.
Just wondered about coolers and injectors.
Thanks for any advice.
Greatly appreciated.
How do i choose a turbo?????
Thanks again.

Why not the downing Atlanta super charger? There's a kit, it costs less than 3k (last time I looked), it will get you better and safer gains with an otherwise stock engine. It will still take bolt ons safely... and will eliminate the costs of having to tune the turbo.
