no it wont you have an alpha motor the tibs and lantras have betas..i would just do the 2.0litre swap or..i know in europe the tibby has a 1.6 dohc turbo motor..dont know if it is the beta or alpha but if it is the alpha you could get the turbo from overseas... the euro tibby hp specs r approx 150hp according to max power (uk edition...why do they get the cool cars)<img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>
