    Look for M38RAJ on instagram, he's just put his R32 up for sale. It looks mint and has all the right goodies, looks to be dirt cheap as well. I wouldn't be selling mine for anywhere near that

    Swapping from a 9a to a 20v or a 20vt would be a similar swap I reckon. The only difference being some intercooler piping as you'll still need a custom downpipe, custom loom etc etc.
