sure it is possible, but it won't just be a mechanical solution, you will have to change all related systems to the turbo units.
the attachment of the turbo will be fairly easy... then...:
you will need to rework the exhaust add oil supply to the turbo, a return, which means new or modified oil pan turbo EFI system capable of feeding the turbo, may need new fuel pump as well turbo computer (or computer hack) to understand forced induction, which may also need some sensor changes non turbo pistons may not be sufficiently strong ... ...

Depends on the model. On the 2.0 it is easy. Intake manifold is in two pieces. Take of the fly by wire connection on the throttle body and the connecting hose that goes to the air cleaner. Then look for the Allen bolts on the upper intake taken them out and make sure you put them in a good place so you do not lose them. Then you need to do the same with the lower manifold and taken the Allen bolt out as well.and it will gave you access for injectors and spark plugs. If you have the VR6 like a GLI or GLX then the hole front of the car need to come off! Not too bad it takes 30 minutes to take a part. YouTube has plenty of videos that show how to take it off. Leave the AC connections in place this way there is no need to recharge the AC system. Then when you bend down you can see the bolts on the bottom of the manifold. These are a one time use and need replacing when taken off. The intake gasket needs to be replaced as well. After replacing my valve cover gasket I spent $800 plus in parts and these were my jobber prices as well. VR engines in general are expensive to.work on. On the 1.8 turbos it is the same procedure you have to take the front of the car.
1. Search utube for video.
2. Remove exhaust from turbo.
3. Disconnect air intake, oil supply lines.(don't allow any dirt to get in)
4. Undo bolts to manifolds, remove turbo.
It all sounds easy but this is one of the most miserable jobs I've ever done myself.
Depends on the engine, but it is generally located behind the 2 bolt flanged fitting that bolts to the block, where the top radiator hose leads to. With respect to the car, if tends to be in the front (side) of the engine, under the intake and exhaust manifolds. Not easily found, and access may be better from the bottom of the car. Let me know what engine, and I can describe it better.
You can fit a turbo to just about any car, the problems lie in changing the inlet and exhaust manifolds to house the turbo of choice and supplying the turbo with oil and water to cool it, also if the car has a ECU getting it chipped to provide the right amount of fuel at the right time.
To be honest if you want a turbo car it is best to buy one with a turbo already fitted as it will probably cost you less to buy for example a Mitsubishi Colt Turbo (around £1500) than to fit a Garrett Turbo (around £3000 with fitting and manifolds) to your 205. Not to mention that the gearbox, brakes and suspension would need to be upgraded aswell.
Hi hannah hardi
It may be that the turbocharger blades are seized, in which case you
will need to replace the complete unit. Before doing so... Check and
see that the pipes from the turbo to the manifold are not cracked and
leaking .Also, if car is fitted with an intercooler..check this
carefully for cracks. Intercooler failure is a common problem.
Hope this is helpful
TO PUT THE ENGINE IN U WOULD HAVE TO USE THE TRANSMISSION FROM THE VR6 ALL THE WIRING & COMPUTER.U WOULD HAVE TO FABRICATE,HOSES,WIRING,ENGINE MOUNTS.NOT TO MENTION IS THERE ENOUGH ROOM IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
the amount of money and time it would require to turn your N/A (naturally aspirated) into a forced induction car(turbocharger, or supercharger), you would require the buttom end to be built, fueling, exahust, ecu(computer) forged rods/pistons/ then the turbo or super charger, also alot more, if you go to vwvortex.com and click on the forums and look around, you can see the different setups people are running on their VW's AUDI's
