Question Total cost of bp to bpt conversion?

Hey guys

Well I'm really interested in getting the bpt conversion to my 1994 ba astina but just wondering how much roughly would it be to do it, so basically from start to finish and also just wanting to know is it nessesary to get the gtx ecu aswell or is it possible to do it with standard astina ecu?

I really appreciate any help. =]
Thanks

BA did have a BP in it...same engine as the BG...for a basic conversion your looking at $3,000-$5,000 but it will be closer to the $5,000...

cant use the standard astina ecu you will need to use the gtx one or get an aftermarket programable one...

this topic has been covered 100 times...all the info you need is on here for the conversion...

ive got a BG BP motor in my car now... the main block is the same but had to swap over everthing else from the original car... id assume it would be the same process if you were to swap a bpt into it...(as id assume they would share the components of the BG series.)
