Converting non turbo to turbo


2010 astra sri
Hey guys this is my first post. I have a 2010 astra j sri 1.6 petrol I came down from a 2.0 diesel turbo volvo v50 and I miss the power so much so instead of buying a turbo car as my car has been modified and is personal I want to fit a turbo to it or atleast get someone professional to haha Is it possible?
Hello and welcome.
Yes, it's possible to add a turbo. Anything is with enough money.
I'm just gonna copy/paste a post I made earlier today....

Does your car have a turbo model? If so that makes it a little easier to source parts.

Start here -->

A few things to consider with turbos:
Engine strengthening - more power is more pressure and you don't want to blow up your block. This involves rods, pins, head, gaskets, nearly everything.
Injectors - more air needs more fuel in the chamber.
Fuel pump and lines - get that fuel to the injectors.
Exhaust manifold and pipes - get the gas out and spinning the turbo wheel.
ECU remap - if your OE can be remapped then happy days, else you'll need a piggy back ECU to control boost, fuelling, timing etc.

This is not going to be cheap. To give you an idea check out Mighty Car Mods on YouTube. This recent video gives a cost of fitting a turbo to a Yaris
