Always fancied a turbo, but a little pricey now!

It makes me sick thinking about it now as I owned three Metro turbos and about a dozen MG metros.
All but one of the MG`s were pillaged for engines, brakes and seats and the turbo`s were considered a nuisance as they were not a straight swap. But then one was a gift and the other two cost £30 and £90 with blown diffs.
If I had the sense and the space to be a hoarder I would be very wealthy........Duh!!!
