BTW.. I got your PM about the XT struts/springs.. I need to hang onto them for now, but may be able to give them up at a later date.

EA82T engines were not SPFI they were MPFI (multiport fuel injected)
turbo heads are different than the SPFI heads..
you can however put turbo heads on a SPFI block..
but you'll also need fuel rails, intake manifold, fuel injectors wireing harness and ecu from a turbo car.
theres prolly other things i left out as well.. this swap can be done, but for all the time and money it'll cost you to round up all those parts, you might as well buy a turbo car..

all these parts are off the same car, a 89, i think he said, GL-10. same car, same parts, it comes with the fuel injection, and i mean everything, he said just bolt on the turbo heads, then everything else and your done.
also is the stock turbo internal or external wastgate, if its external im gonna cut the whole bigger and run a 3.5inch or 3 inch wastegate out to the bottom of the car, and keep my stock exhaust from the trubo heads back, if that will work.
if its internal, then what do i do, do i HAVE to tie it into the stock exhaust, and ifso does anyone have a EA82T Y-pipe i can get?

The factory turbo setup uses an external wastegate. Get some pics of the motor in question , or verify which injection system it has and we can help you more clearly.

ok scooby- I fully ageree with meeky moose. it is possible. I was in your same situation before and decided to pick up my current wagon(with EA82T ) and a blown motor. while fixing this one up I still drove my old Roo. after completion I sold the other car and now have a rather clean rebuilt turbo car. the tranys are a little differant on turbos too. they use larger axles. not a big deal but more strenght.
if you could find a wrecked turbo car and get all the necessary bits off it good go for it. if not well I hope you have a lot of time and $ on hand because thats what it will take.
another option is to get a programable fuel system and build your own turbo set up. if emisions allow in your area.

I would definately pull the motor to do the swap.
use the turbo motor complete if you can.
if you run the higher compression pistons you will probably want to intercool it at the same time. just food for thought.

also i will later run a WRX turbo and inner cooler.
so if anyone has any tech articles and/or info please e-mail it to me.
