I'm not sure what all the parts you'll need are, but most likley since you have a 2.0 now, you'll need a donor engine, new ECU and wiring harnes, new trany to hold all the power, motor mounts, a new clutch then you'll need all the parts for the turbo. I'm sure there are many other parts you need too. If you really want to do it this way, look for a wreaked car with the engine and all the parts (same style model). What i would do instead is i would be get a used car with the VR6 then get a turbo/supercharger. Most likley it will cost alot less that way. Just my .02

yea, with the swap and turbo, you could probably sell your car, buy a new one with a vr6, and then buy the turbo kit for the same amount of money. You're gonna need new front suspension as well...
