Here are links to a brief and incomplete rundown on what I did.  I will  likely
do similarly again with the UrQ.  Although there are better ways to go if cost
is not an issue, but a good MC-1 transplant will give you a good performance
for the cost.  I do have a spreadheet outlining total costs of everything.-
maybe I can post it.  Considering the availability of MC-1 engine, harness and
ECU, I feel it would be a good affordable setup with plenty of room to grow.


[I'm considering a turbo conversion on 4kq. I would like to know what are the
pro's and con's of each setup, KH, MC (1 or 2), 3B. I'm tending more to the
3B, but information is the most important thing so before I start I would
like some opinions.

Money to me is a certain
liability, I just got married and there are other things to consider. I'm
more worried on long term, rather than short term.

2. which engine is the best setup - out of the box -
3. most easily tuned
4. peak hp tuning possibility in each one.
5. clutch and flywheel options
6. if there is anything else that you think might be valuable to me

in the first stage I did not want to spend more than $5,000 in materials and
tools, not counting my time of course.

I know it might be unfair, but I would like to learn from everyone's
experience, so that it could be easier for me, I'm willing to recompense to
a certain extent everyone that helps. I have a big house with a decent back
yard so get togethers are not a problem.

I thank everyone in advance I'm not expecting answers at lighting speed, I
thank everyone that will take time and share wisdom with me.
