So I found in a pick and pull lot, a complete turbo kit on a 2011 SX. I just bought an EX and I’m wondering can I do a full swap with the ECU if I have all the components and if so what components do I need outside of the entire intake inner cooler exhaust manifold turbo coil packs ECU? They are literally only wanting to 240 bucks for all of the items listed above. And I am working on getting that price even lower if I give them all of my working components as well will this work?

I would appreciate a super quick response being as if someone else sees that this is there I will lose these things and I don’t want to so I’m literally thinking about going and getting it all tomorrow if it’s possible.

Compression ratio different, as well as engine strength for 18 psi boost.
Not as easy as one may think, so better off purchasing a turbo car or buy the entire drive-train, wiring, inter-cooler etc and convert yours over, a lot of work.
If I remember correctly even some of the trans ratios are different.
