Although I have owned 4-5 Brats over the past 15 years, and have maintained,
swapped motors (same kind), and fixed the bodies completely on 2 of them, I do not know much about the turbo 1.8. I recently picked up a 1989 GL wagon with the turbo MPFI 1.8 motor. Has anyone dropped a later model computer controlled turbo in their Brat or similar 2 door body style? Can someone give me the "recipe" for this swap? What I will need to do? Thanks so much for your time and patience... P.S. I'm just dying to BOOST that Brat!!
