Are you planning to fit a turbo to a stock n/a 1.9?

Hi Brian

You cant just fit a turbo to a 1.9 as its more complicated plus the TD unit is stronger/strengthened

BX diesels were 1769 diesel, 1905 diesel and 1769 turbo diesel.

You can fit a retro fit a 1769cc from a dead BX or 1905CC turbo diesel from a Xantia if you wanted more power.

Easiest way is just buy a Turbo diesel.
