Has any boby done this conversion? I have done some research and does not appear to be to much messing around. I just need to know is there anything extra than the fuel electrical system that needs to be upgraded.

I looked into the same idea before selling my 80 for the 100 turbo.
I was based in WA so I tried to track down some guys on the east coast with not much luck.
Most said too much stuffing around with the management system and fly by wire!
After owning the 100 for a few months now and taking a good look under the bonnet, l would still like to attempt the project myself one day as I miss the old rig.
There are some import crews on the east coast that can get the donk and peices or even a wrecking yard might have the goods.

Good luck Brooka

Cheaper and smarter in the long run to do what Brooka decided to do, just buy a s\hand 100 turbo and sell the 80. also better resale value. I happen to have a 100 series t\d 5 spd auto for sale ATM if you are interested. Cheers Rob

good luck with it, without a doubt a terrific motor.

I did see a thread on here 6 months back about a panel beater (I think) fitting 1 in a 105 cruiser. This would have all the same issues as your I think.

I wonder if it would be easier to do a SAS conversion on a 100 than transplant the engine in a 105?

Check with http://www.offroadwrecking.com.au/# as when I spoke to them about 6 months ago the had completed a conversionof a HDFTE into a petrol 80 which was not easy.
