    Well, why not just buy nice clean 5kcsT 5-spd?  
   Then you don't have to do the turbo conversion and they're dirt 
 cheap...if you can find one:-). I bought mine for $1600 in fair 
 condition, spent another $1000  in 9 months (fixed everything myself)
 and now it's "very good". Now I need another ~$1000 to make it

 Good luck anyway.
