I can find a couple of turbo's for around $400. But that's the motor itself. What else do I need to get? Computer, Harness and what else? Should I hold out for the whole car or should I jump on the engine itself then piece together? Please help.

If you can get the whole car, get it, you'll need many more parts off it.

If you have the room to get a whole turbo coupe and take off what you need that will be the cheapest and easiest way to go. I paid $800 (asking price was $1,500) for my '88 turbo coupe, runs excellent, smooth idle, no smoke, trans shifts perfect, brakes good, good clutch, rear is quiet, and exhaust looks fairly new. I drove it before I bought it and then the guy who sold it to me drove it 1 hour to my house. I can sell off what I don't want and get a big chunk of money back. Start checking craigs list, ebay, and local paper. One will pop up eventually. The turbo coupes in running condition can be had for $500-$1000; that is a lot of parts for the money. If you gather the parts one by one it will be much tougher and way more expensive. Hold out for an '87-'88 they have the inter cooler, better computers, bigger injectors, along with the larger Vane Air Meter. And one with a rough body and interior, like mine, will be dirt cheap.

Hey guys, a few questions. I have a 1984 Mustang GT Turbo 2.3l, and I am trying to get between 250 - 300 horsepower, I have already got ordered, 1987 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe Vam, Moates 1/4 Horse Tuner Chip, 3'' down pipe and 3'' cat back exhaust, 45lbs injectors, with a 255 liter FP, and an Intercooler. I am wondering with all that installed, how much boost can I get without destroying my internals, block and bottom end?

Best to start a new threads. Some may consider this one finished and not look at it. It gets confusing when we are trying to answer two peoples question on one thread. Maurice
