10V Turbo swap question

thats also quite the possibility. 
in the time while i'm acquiring parts looking for a 2nd more wrecked donor. 
with a nice low price but complete. I don't mind reringing and replacing HGs or bearings, 
just need a good runner not a overheated or knocking donor.. 

of course a low miles 5cyl is a bonus..  I do have an 84 Quantum 5cyl with 82K sitting in storage. 
but the weight and highway drag of the syncro with 30" tires would really benefit from the turbo to maintain highway and passing speeds.  
for my 2nd vehicle and roadtrip ride, the syncro camper is far better suited. we have a new 05 model daily driver.. 

I still have to source the south african bellhousing and fabricate carrier bars(using my 83 Q5cyl as a size/placement jig. 

anyways.. I'll liekly be enjoying the 5000CS T for some time.. it's nice and pretty torquey has new exhaust (though i suspect it's touching the DS on downshift decelleration)  and the Falkin directiona tires don't really like 8in roadsnow. the quattro makes it go.. 

maybe next year i'd buy a set of dedicated snows. .

just a thought...
