the D port head is the only way to go.

Go with a FMIC with a minimal pressure drop

It would be alot easier to just get an 88 turbocoupe car and use it as a donor...

well i would beg to differ because if i did that i would completly rebuild it befor droping it in and i would also have to change the wiring harness which is also a pain.

You are going to have to change things over somehow anyway (harness) to make the turbo application be a success. It's cake with the engine out. just sit on the Kmember and take your sweet time.

why would i need to change the harness out the same motor would go right back in the car with maybe a different head and different pistons?

you will need to change the EEC over to a turbo EEC application. The turbo will provide more air to the cylinder, which will require a more aggressive fuel schedule (injector pulse).
You also will need a different spark map.
So, if you install the turbo EEC, you could repin it to fit your harness, but why do all that work when you can just swap over an entire harness from a donor car? Your time I guess, not mine.
Just my $.02, good luck with the mod.

well it is just that i would have to spend the extra money on the engine and more time on the wiring harness.
i plan on rebuilding the engine in my car either that or buy an engine and rebuild it which i might also do.
