For a while, the turbo in Murphy, the $500 87 Turbo Wagon, has been a bit noisy. Well, now the power has really started to drop, along with the mileage. Pulled the front intake off, and yeah, it's got the wobbly wobblys.

Anyone happen to have a turbo unit for sale???.

PS. What ticks me off is that one of the EA82T engines I bought a number of years ago actually had the turbo still connected.... And I'm pretty sure I threw it away thinking I'd never need it! :banghead:

Yes, but you need to cut off the flange from the up pipe and weld on a EJ one.

Thank you scoobiedubie for the turbo! Just got it delivered and will have it on Murph this afternoon.

After spinning the newer one, I realize even more just how mucked up the other one was!
:eek:
