Citroën Saxo VTS Turbo GT2871R
If you have a bit of mechanical sense then it is no problem to perform most of a turbo conversion yourself. True, to make a complete job some fabrication skills are necessary and calibration of the management system is a job for an expert... or an enthusiast that does not mind spending 'a bit' on engine parts to learn. That is exactly how Craig, owner of the Saxo VTS, went about. After ordering some of our catalogue items he tinkered as far as he wanted to go on his own and decided the fabrication of the exhaust system, intercooler piping and tuning of the engine management system (Vems PnP) were for us to take care of. When the car arrived we inspected the progress and found a few extra issues needed to be addressed but in the end Craig did a pretty good job for a rookie :).
The engine power increased from 120 hp to 317 hp and torque to 365nm. This is still without the NOS system, that ,with the use of a progressive controller boost the engine power by another 75 hp!
