With the Torbo kit developed for the new swift, think its possiable to have it on the ignis sports too? My main concern is the compression of the Ignis. Being at 11 its a wee bit too high for a turbo kit. Any thoughts?

I'm asking this as there is a turbo kit being manufactured for the new swift from Taiwan and its really cheap like kess than 2K aussie with piping intercooler and stuff. Do not have the exact specs yet but will update you guys once i get hold of more info.

The IS doesn't have enough clearance to allow for the turbo to be mounted. You would have to remove all the air conditioning gear first, and even then it would be a squeeze.

Piping and intercooler would also have to be different to those used on a new Swift, so you'd only be buying the kit for the turbo and manifold.

Compression would also play a huge factor. I couldn't see 11:1 (or is it 11.5:1) working with much boost.

I was thinking of going at 0.5bar but am still skeptical. I've always been running high powered NA machines and this is my 1st attempt trying to build a Forced Induction machine on a NA based machine.

All tips and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
