    Prices can be a tough thing to provide considering there may be a lot of custom work needed.

    Off the top of my head you'll need:

    Modifying a T5 would be easier than adding a turbo to a NA 6 cyl engine, for a start the I6 would have a higher compression.

    Depends on how much you are willing to spend.

    Nice one Mark, both issues solved in one go :)

    When you pull the bonnet release the bonnet usually pops up enough to come out of the locks.

    If it doesn't pop up I would be looking at that before changing the cables, especially if the locks...

    The bluetooth reader should work but being an older car the refresh rate is very slow.

    And being an older car the O2 sensor is only a narrowband which means you won't be able to read AFR. You...

    It's a 3.5" ID MAF from a BMW 740i. Should allow up to approx. 1800kg/h flow instead of the 826kg/h of the standard MAF which apparently can be easily reached by a 15G.

    The 320mm calipers look a better design too, more metal for strength and heat dissipation (I guess)

    Graphic shamelessly stolen from a VAG button which has a twin tailpipe graphic which I edited to a single. May add some lines to it to show the valve as open.
