Is it possible to turn my mugen MBX6 ECO into a etruggy , or do I need to get a truggy and get conversion kit to make it into a etruggy.

It would be wayyyy too expensive to do this.

You would need,

Longer F/R Arms
Longer Driveshafts, front,rear and centre.
longer shocks in the front
front and rear shock towers
steering turnbuckles
All control links
body posts
new diff rings and pinions
Plus the chassis

minds well buy mbx6t then add the conversion kit to ECO MUGE0075

I agree much easier to convert a truggy.

I had a MBX6-T and added the Tekno V4 conversion and loved it. Best part if you keep the ECO there are alot of the parts that are interchangable if something breaks.
