I have an 88 n/a and an 87 Turbo II. Well the Turbo had a small fire above the exhaust and burned soem sensors and wires and all the hoses, and I was thinking if I should switch over the turbo stuff to the n/a, sell it and get that supercharger I have seen, or just try finding all the parts to fix the Turbo?

Where would be the best place to find small parts and sensors without paying a fortune at the dealership? There are none in the junkyards in P.C. either. And also it might need a rebuild pretty soon 93 in front 72 in rear.

I am thinking about switching my n/a to turbo. Since I have both how hard would it be and is there a writeup on this? My n/a has around 135 psi for both. And then I was going to take off all the other parts and selling them on ebay or something. Or would it be easier to sell the whole car and buy NOS or something else for my n/a?

NOS = bad. VERY bad.



93/72..? Could need a rebuild.



As far as turboing up an N/A 13B, it's not a bad idea , there are some write-ups for it around NoPistons.com....personally I would suggest repairing/rebuilding your Turbo 2, especially because if you screw up on the N/A 13B while trying to change it over, you'll be kicking yourself in the ***.



Good luck man ^_^
