so i have a friend that thinks you can turbo a stock 2.0L 8V and basically just bolt it on and it will work...

meaning no fuel injection upgrades, engine component upgrades or computer remapping. he thinks i can change the exhaust and hook up a turbo and the stock computer will take care of the imbalance?

is that possible? i dont think it is...but he thinks if the boost from the turbo is really low like 5 or 6 PSI it doesn't need changed at all...

What do you guys think or have any of you tried this?

I would have to agree that you could just bolt it on, no problem. But I would also agree that it would be very wise to put bigger injectors on.

But I think the real problem would come from the MAF sensor. My pop had a supercharged mercedes and it would literally choke on all the air it would get. The fuel rails were upgraded, but the MAF didnt know what to think, so it gave the managment system a false reading and bad stuff started to happen. The car wasnt re-mapped so that may have also been the problem.
