RE: Adding a turbo to a 4000Q

I am in the process right now.  You do have to change out the harness and move 
the battery.  You can use the 4kq clutch but it is a little undersized.  A 5kt 
clutch is better.  The rf tie rod has to be bent also to miss the wastegate.  
The other problem is what to do with the intercooler.  I am going to try to 
squeeze it in the lower bumper/airdam.  There are also many other little 
battles that I will report on when I am done.
