well swapping to turbo gearbox has more headache rather than just swap the whole engine.. its all plug n play.. everything is straight swap including bodykits..
and the N/A Body already 2.0 so it wont have major issues on registration.

yea.. can use runner(of cos have to pay) or just do it yourself. not poisoning u to do a turbo engine swap.. but its a good option to think about. reconditioned gbox not really cheap, turbo r halfcut getting cheaper now bcos most of airtrek turbo owner just looking for upgrades to evo parts rather than airtrek. and if u think u concern on FC, get it reflash tuning for better FC.
