RE: Water Cooled Turbo Conversion Parts Required
Unfortunately during the repair of my '85 ur-q it was discovered the turbo
cold air fan has been damaged - so now I need a new turbo. I would like to
convert the turbo on the car to a later model water cooled bearing type. To
do this I need the following parts from an '85 or later 5000 turbo
Oil lines, Water feed and return line, and the tap for the freeze plug for
the coolant return.
Any help locating the parts or advice regarding the pros and cons (can't
think of any cons except getting the parts) would be appreciated.
Go with the S4-type turbo, or one of Scott's RS2/modified units. You will need to customize one end of one of the oil lines by enlarging the mounting holes - NBD (No Big Deal). You will be pleased with the preformance of the S4 or better turbo!!!
p.s. I need the parts in a hurry, or I'll be sticking with the stock
ps: don't go with a stock K26!
