I cant remember the diffirence between the 2.0LPT & FP turbo's. Well I think it's something to with ECU's and turbo units itself would this be right?
And as far as recall it's not very easy at all to convert from LPT tp FP.

Er ... what year and model are you talking about? Some are easier than others, but yes, you can generally make an LPT perform like an FPT comparatively easily.

Ah so. Well, depending on whether that makes your car one of the last DI/APC models, or one of the first Trionic cars, you've a few options.

I'm not the best on 9000s, though, so hopefully someone who knows more than I will be along in a minute ...

You need, depending on what you alreadty have..

Intercooler (don't think you have one)
APC valve and plumbing (think you do have)
FPT ECU
Optional Boost guage cluster of separate boost guage.

Intercoolers are quite easy to fit
APC valve not so easy (wiring bit, not plumbing)

I'm sure someone will come along and tell me what I've forgotten

Thanks guy's

Intercooler....No! (I'd need to get one)

Apc............Thats the small black cylinder with the 3 pipes at the top of the rad (do have)

FP ECU.......Would need to get, and I think that would be quite hard to find!!

Boost gauge.......Have a spare set of clocks off a FPT has fuage in them.

Then comes the tuning part, like I mentioned above the prices seem to vary quite bit from both companys for some reason.
I like roughly 250+ hp, Best just to give them both a call and take it from that.

The APC valve is dead easy to fit as the wiring loom will already be there. The electrical connector is zip tied down near the radiator cowling IIRC. Then, as you say it's just a matter of fitting the right rubber hoses on the correct barbs.
