Very interesting! You're lucky to find a low-km turbo 3. I'm sure the regulars at teamswift will be green with envy.

I've also heard a few members there say the turbo is theoretically more efficient. Of course nobody has demonstrated it yet, have they? If anyone's in a position to play "Mythbusters" on this subject, it is you.

Please keep us posted. Perhaps start a thread to document the vehicle/swap/results?
