Having look around at Audi 1.8T conversions which are around the £10k mark - what makes up much of the cost? Does anyone sell the basic parts needed to do the conversion?

unfortunately there a very very few off the shelf parts for this convertion.

Mounts (which i acutally have for sale soon, new)
Drive shafts depends on location of engine in bay, as the is so many trains of thought on cost vs reliability
mouting and doing drive shafts are the 2 hardest parts in my opinion as everything else is governed by that (inlet and exhaust manfiold)
Chargecooler / intercooler
oil cooler
tanks/pipework
turbo
exhaust system
