Think you would need to do a few mods as the compression ratio will need changing also the injector pump maybe other parts.

didnt think it would be straight forward. lot of messing about for an extra 10mph. suppose fuel economy is better with the turbo as the engine doesnt have to work as hard? looks like its gonna be none turbo lump then!
