Yup, Turbo Power ... that was the place.  Funny, my BiL and his boss were
saying that there was a shop here that moved to Sacramento ... Cameron Park
... close enough.  I think that I shipped that oil cooled K-26 that Turbo
Power rebuilt to Bill Bremer, the keeper of the urq registry.  It has been a
while ... it might have been the turbo that Rocky gave me after his MC
conversion ... 

I'm still not sure what Jim was looking to do ... and why Javad or Mark
Thomas might not be able to help.  There's Scott Justusson (qshipq at aol.com)
in the Chicago area on the other lists ... he knows a lot about turbos.  I
think Ned is retired, but I know that he still is around and available to
provide advice ... there's got to be some way to get hooked up!  :-)

The shop on De La Cruz in Santa Clara was "turbo power" and belonged to 
Dobie(sp?), proprietor & turbo magician. He moved to Cameron Park and then
the business. The business still exists. The other turbo shop I've dealt
was Coast Fuel Injection in San Jose, also gone after 35+ yrs. I've had
referrals to Innovative Turbo in southern California, but I just found out 
they've also gone out of business a few months ago. :-/  When you find a
shop, let us know...
