You can change out the front bell housing on the tranny and bolt up an NA motor. Get the 85 front cover so you can mount it in the front. This will get you the basics.

Or mazsport.net sells a kit to go turboII complete drive train swap. Mine makes 300WHP at 12psi. and I drive it every day to work. This way I show up to work every day with a smile on my face.

The REW is the hardest motor. You need a 1985 GSLSE*** front cover and use the mounting brace or the RB brace with custom motor mounts.



If you chose this method you would need to custom fit or fabricat the intake manifold to use the mecanichle OMP or premix the gas.



A custom tranny to rear end brace will need to be fabricated and longer studs for the rear end will be needed to use the FC differential. Custom shafts as well.



Then you need to brace the chassi if you plan on anything over stock power levels



And then of course all the electrical fabrication.



"depending on where you mount the motor an oil pan is needed or subframe modifications.
