i imagine getting power out of the 1.4 is like getting blood from a stone. and a turbo conversion would be way to costly for small gains really. i cant see a turbo 1.4 making much power.

you will be lucky, the d16 in the old ep2 couldn't crack 200bhp with a turbo on stock engine. it would cheaper to buy a fn2 or a 2.2 derv and map that over a turbo on the 1.4. i have never heard of the 1.4 being turbo'd though so at least it would be original.

Far easier and cheaper to sell it and buy a more powerful car. You'll then get all the other uprated stuff like brakes, clutch, transmission, etc that you also need.

Sticking a turbo on that would be a mistake.

with the cost of a turbo conversion might aswell buy yourself a a second car with big power as standard, e.g a Subaru can pick them up these days for next to nothing and thats double the bhp and fun you would get out of the 1.4 turbo !

In reality it is a waste of money but if it's what you want to do then go for it and good look to you.

You may see 170bhp at a guess but a good increase in torque.

i reckon it can be done. if you got the money and its what you want. go for it!
I don't doubt that it can be done, but is the time, effort and money really worth turbo in a 1.4? It won't even be as powerful as a fn2 and they are getting cheap now, if a fn2 is out of the question due to running costs then buy a 2.2 and map it.
