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.

stopping it. Koenig Cobra 16x7 with AVS Intermediates, turbo coming soon,
