Good man, that should be just a case of drilling and tapping the compressor housing for the actuator mounting on the tomcat :D

Glenn, buy yourself a decent wideband kit matey like the AEM uego, Zeitronix kit, and then you can set it up yourself with some fettling to the carb jets it's not as hard as it seems lol:

Rolling road's nowadays the peeps have no idea how to setup a carb'd car only good really for the power runs to see what doing on the 5's.  They like modern cars they can plug there computer's straight into and see everything.

I would start your car with that knackered T2 matey, just to run it and then drop the oil and oput decent stuff in as you don't want to knacker a new turbo if things are wrong.

What size turbo are you looking to get??
