Title: Hola from Spain!!
Post by: Tigerpoeton on 00:21, Thu 06 January 2011
Hi All,

Thought I had better sign up to get some advice, The car world here in Spain doesnt work like in the uk!, Much less choice and 300% more expensive!

Im looking at getting a cheap 5 (Non turbo) and doing the conversion, Hopefully some of you may have done this before and can advise on the process?
The main thing I want to know is would it be possible to put a turbo engine from a uk RHD car into a LHD model? Im thinking the gear linkage cable and stuff would be different?

Any advice will be very much appreciated.

Thanks all

Tiger

Welcome to the forum :D

A few people have put GT Turbo engines into none turbo 5's so you'll get some good advice.
As for a RHD engine and gear box, I can't see why it won't work. The gear stick, linkage etc will be in the same place :)

Thanks for that im sure this site has loads of advice on the subject, I need to get the car first then get the parts but Im pretty sure I will have no chance of getting a turbo engine here hence why I would need to get one shipped from the uk.

Im thinking the clutch might be a problem I guess it's a cable in the 5's? obviously the pedal is on the wrong side so maybe that would affect it?
