Default Swapping 1.6 K Series to 1.8 Turbo engine

After a 2nd failure of the NSR driveshaft which punched a hole in the gearbox, coupled with an underpowered rattly engine, I've decided to go turbo powered. Wish me luck as I'm making it up as I go along.

Default Old engine out.

Engine out. Need to clean the frame whilst I've got access before trying the turbo lump.
