Hi ,

I'm interested in putting a turbo in my 2009 swift sport.

Can anyone recommend one?

Cheers!

Any of the GT25 or up to GTX2860 in the Garrett range would be fine. Smaller end of range if you want quick response or at the GT28 end if you want more top end. You could go bigger but will be a bit of a dog down low unless you spend a lot of money on good bits and tuning. You could also use other brand name turbos of similar size (eg. TD04 from wrx etc...realise that car makers slightly undersize the turbos so you get good down low response and trade off is not a great top end. Advantage for you is that a turbo sized for a 2 litre car would probably go quite well on the 1.6).

Decide what you want to use the car for, talk to a shop that can do a kit for you (will give you an idea of cost of parts and labour).

Not many have turboed the M series on here but there are kits around you can buy off the shelf. This is also a good place to get ideas on turbo sizing.
