Default Mk2 turbo kit on mk1

There's no reason a mk2 turbo kit won't bolt right up to my mk1 car right?

It has a full exhaust system so I assume the exhaust hanger won't line up but apart from that the manifold bolt on fine?

Manifold will fit fine.

If it's a full exhaust it'll fit fine. hangers won't line up though.

Why the facepalm 18psi? It's not the worst noob post I've ever seen

Is your turbo setup coming from a 1.6 or 1.8 NA ?

Stop using MK1,MK2,MK3... it's NA/NB/NC.

In faraway lands where they use MK1, MK2, etc. don't they have 1.8 MK1s and 1.6 MK2s?

I belive that the intercooler pipes are slighty different from the NA to the NB? I believe so, at least in the Begi S3 Kit.
