Hi guys, I was wondering what is needed to fit a turbo engine into a C2. I have a great deal for a wrecked 997tt, so needed to confirm what exactly I need for this conversion.

thanks

This is going to be quite an undertaking. The turbo has a lot of systems (true dry sump oil separator and tanks, intercoolers, special oil coolers, unique exhausts system, four wheel drive, etc.) that need to be fitted as they were never used in the C2 body. Some may require some extensive fabrication as the Turbo cars had more room than the C2 in the engine bay to stuff all this equipement into. I would suggest getting a look at an empty Turbo engine bay to get an idea of what you will need to do. Good luck!

Just my opinion but this is going to cost you a fortune in time and/or money. If you want a 997TT, you can pick them up used with relatively low mileage starting around $60K USD. You're just going to spend way too much and then your car isn't going to be worth what a real 997TT is anyway. I would only do this if you're looking to kill a lot of hours and do it as a fun project. JFP is right, you're also going to need a ton of hardware.

You will have to find an alternative location for the intercoolers as there is not enough room in the rear fenders. Silver TT is right, unless you just want to have fun messing around this is a bad move. Even if you could jamb that motor in there the suspension in the C2 is not tuned for the additional weight and power. You are likely to wind up with a very dangerous car.
