emo newbie with turbo question

Hi im Chris from Wigan. Iv owned a newer shape silver charade for about 2 Months and love it. So far iv fitted 8j rear 7j front 15" wheels, lowered with front and back camber, bike style exhaust running parallel with bumper, hid lights and led spotlights with led angel lights (tryed to upload pictures but struggling on my phone).
iv bin looking at turbo'ing it but cant find anything car specific on the net. I know other forums all say don't bother it will cost too much but i was just wondering, i have a yrv turbo that im breaking with bottom end nock. Could this be used as a donor car..... Intercooler, fuel pump, injectors, perhaps turbo (to big maybe??) im also a fabricator/welder so exhaust and piping is not a problem. Am i still dreaming? Is this even possible? Can it be mapped/piggyback etc.

would be interesting to know if any1 else in the uk has modified 1 of these, iv never seen any. Seem to love them in Malaysia.

anyway thanks in advance.... Chris

loveing the sight btw

every thing is do able mate, you would havet o run low boost tho inless you double up the HG's, the worst bit would be fitting the oil fed and return, but the rest is fairly easy if your handy with a welder, fabricat up a manifold and down pipe uo to match the turbo, a fmic, bigger fuel pump and rising rate fuel reg to sort the fueling out. its will be a lot of trial and error but deff worth it if you get it sorted. post some pics up of your car mate, sounds intresting

Ye it all sounds simple enough, then again so does everything in theory lol. Its just the fueling and ecu tuning that concerns me. Would the vvt-i become a problem?

how do i upload pictures? Not sure wether its because im using my phone or if its just me being a spanner.

thanks for the reply

Also Ecu wise a standalone would be the best option as everything is wired from scratch and would all be fully programable.

hopefully heres the picture iv bin trying to upload for 2 days. Wish i would of took a couple now.

as tempting as that is, it wouldn't be big enough. Iv got a baby so 3 doors just wouldn't b practicle.

erm i think its the ej-ve engine 1litre but not sure.

what about Daihatsu tuners? They must be few and far between??

Looks propa smart dude, loving the borbets (^_^)

Tis nice to see another newer shaped charade modified :)

Unfortunately mine got written of by an idiot in a Volvo last year :(

Tuning wise I never really looked into performance tuning as the idea was to keep it economical, however I have kept it so I will compare the subframe to my Zato one when it stops raining to give you an idea if the actual engine swap(not wiring) would be do-able.

Ye iv gotta say im loveing the fuel consumption compared to the yrv turbo i had previously, then there's the 15quid road tax
its a torquey little bast tho, couldn't stop the tiny little standard wheels from spinning up.
have you got any pics of yours ??
