Hi ¡

I would like to know if it´s easy to fit a turbo engine in my non-turbo 9000 automatic CSE (1993).

Any recommendations?

Is it easy? I mean, change the engine, fit the turbo, and that´s all? (well, I would like to have the turbo indicator in my panel, I think it will be the worst step...)

greetings

I'm sure to be corrected on this, but I would think you can drop turbo engine into your car, but you need to ensure you also have the ECU from the donor car as they are very specific to the engine, so-much-so that upgrade specialists ask for ECU serial number on your vehicle before producing an upgrade specific to your engine.

I agree the clocks would be a massive pain, but then again it may be possible to get an engine from a 2.0 LPT which has no boost gauge (mine doesn't, anyway) so would it matter what clocks you have already?

My two penny worth, for what it's worth!
