Ben,
There is a factory 505 Turbo engine (160 hp plus), gearbox (5 speed) and diff(LSD) available in Melbourne for $2500.

Graham,

please correct me if i'm wrong but the turbo 505 (N9TE) engine wasn't brought to Australia (or for that matter never made in the RHD version) because of the turbo fouling the steering column. No doubt some clever re-engineering (and plenty of $$$) could overcome this problem?

Yes?

Con,
It can done, the main change is to fit a smaller brake booster. My V6 rally car was originally built as a turbo.
The car had manual steering, maybe the power steering rack could pose a problem. I can ask the Alan Upton, the person who did the conversion if anyone is interested.
The engine is advertised by Jarrod Smith in the latest Victorian Peugeot Club magazine.
Regards, Graham
