i was talking to my buddy who is pretty suby swavy and he said that its alot of work to do the swap from an EA82 to the EA82 turbo motor. he said you have to do the hole wiring harness and all that stuff, well i dont know if he said all that but...i just want to check this out and make sure that its is.

It is far easier to find a car that is already turbo'd, there are plenty of EA82T cars out there.

well as far as electronics go.. you could go the do it yersel route and use a meagquirt for the fuel and ignition
but you still have teh crossmembers and such to argue with

think the wiring is pretty easy, you just have it as a stand alone part. all you have to do is power it, ground it, have it controll a relay for the fuel pump, and hookup the trigger wires on the coil, and connect a wire from the computer to the starter solenoid wire. then the rest plugs in like stock to the engine/intake.
thats on the flapper system, i think the hotwiere would be easier, as you wouldnt have to run the trigger wire to the coil.

dash and everything plugs in using your stock wiring from the car, even if its an ea81. i love it! it all fits!
