Re: 4000q turbo motor

Turbo head fits non turbo block...  But then you need pistons, larger
flywheel, modifications to block for the oil to turbo lines, water jacket
lines, lots of assorted hoses (vacuum and water)....  Grab that whole engine
bay, otherwise the "nickel and dime" items will make the jump to a 5ktq look
cheap in comparison...  My thinkin is that the reason no one jumps on this is
that grabbing a road 5ktq is not that much more expensive than the 4kq
(chicago the diffferential is 1300 to 2000, that doesn't give you much play
money, by the time you buy that engine bay...  And you have air for the wife,
