a lot of work!

ferst if you where to put a turbo on from a 13bt on a 13b you have cut the ports because the turbo motors are a 4 port and the non turbos are a 6 port. also you have to move the motor up tords the front of the car so the turbo and all will fit in. and you would have to get a different computer. those are some of the biggest things right there. and there is more. but i will say makin a nun turbo, turbo it will run better because you have more ports. it is not worth your time

thats my link to my post about turbo'ing a 6 port.. to me it was very well worth it. I got a parts list of everything I used to make it a turbo car.. certain stuff you could do without.. ill be going with a haltech in about a week.. right now im running 5 psi and its very reliable and very fast. if you have any questions about it feel free to ask.

you're better off to just buy a J-Spec TII motor,or get a TII somewhere near you and just do a motor swap. Not only will it be easier,it will also cost about the same,or less.



CP Racing will get you a J-spec TII motor for $1100 CDN,give or take a couple hundred bucks.
