since it's almost the same block I think it can be done
 
Conversion

Waste of money IMO, you could get more power and reliability from a 2.0 8v with the amount you'd spend. Plus you'd keep burning valves out, the turbo has sodium cooled valves for a reason.
The 2.2 gives better midrange, but the 2.0 with a shorter throw will rev higher before sticking a rod out the block.

Spend the dosh on a 2.0 turbo.

Again this is all in my personal opinion :wink:
