Re: Calling all 4kq turbo conversions

<< It took me one weekend!!  You are making it look a lot harder than it 
 really is.  Apart from the intercooler placement it's a straight bolt 
 My car has gone 20,000 since the conversion and I have yet to have 
 any problems with it.  My installation is not a butcher job either.  
 You can ask the mechanics at my local dealership (Pfaff) or even Mike 
 Hopton will tell you that this is not a hard project for people who 
 know they way around tools.The only thing I regret is not doing it long 
 time ago.

Once again, the MC swap is much more difficult than an early turbo swap, and
you get thrity more horsepower to boot. The wiring alone took me about a week
to figure out, theres about twenty wires you have to connect to the 4kq
harness, more if you want the trip computer to work..
