a stock turbo runs about 75-150 used depending condition, a reman probably 250-300. Id just get and upgraded one personally, the stock turbo is not enough imo. To each his own though.
That is the down side it isn't a 5 speed only a auto so I really don't know if it would be worth the money. The upside I would just sell parts of the body but don't really know if that's worth taking the time let me know what you think. I might be able to work the price a little but would it be worth my time really? I do have another guy who has a 84 svo T5 with 116k miles but wants 3k for the whole thing.If 5 speed car I say worth the money. I wonder can a person hook the air intake line bypassing the turbo and test the motor. I don't see why not. When a turbo car is idling not using the turbo. That way can see oil pressure, if smokes etc. Would have to hook up water lines or run for a short time without water. Just thinking out loud. Maurice
Edit what is motor in SVO, transplant or Turbo Coupe. I am thinking maybe rest of car parted out.
Thanks Crak88lx for some baseline numbers to kind of go around.a stock turbo runs about 75-150 used depending condition, a reman probably 250-300. Id just get and upgraded one personally, the stock turbo is not enough imo. To each his own though.
Yea true true really know gotta wait and see it in person ill post on here what happens when I go look at it when he's back.An auto would be cool, with a good powerful setup, personally im a 5 speed guy though. An auto would be worth it if you want an auto dont settle if you dont want it.
Well I thought it would blow into the intercooler before it got to the engine but I personally have no idea. And I agree that's what it may have been I just don't know or have the money to buy a possibly trashed engine.. Just don't know... Got people telling me go for it and others saying wait.If the turbo blew, all the debris would go through the exhaust wouldnt it? Chances are if its at a junk yard and the tubro is gone somone took it, they arnt exactly common. Also stock turbos are hard to blow they max at 23psi or so, i run 15psi on my 26 year old turbo and it loooooves it.
Yea same here use this form a lot for information so I don't mess something up lol. But yea I got time just not the funds for a rebuild which is what we were worried about so don't know might look into different options.:mesad:I could be wrong, im new to the turbo thing, only been dealing with mine for a little under a year. But anyways, if theres any chance its messed up even the block is hard to find, so maybe pull the motor and do a rebuild if you have the time and money for it.
