Ok,i have an 89 spirit es that someone put a 2.2 shortblock in after blowing up the 2.5..2.5 turbo motors are getting hard to find here in colorado so i was tossing around using a common block NA 2.5 shortblock in my car..obviously i have to drill the turbo drain line,but what other issues could i run into?i am going to use the turbo head etc,but i have seen people say that the rings could be an issue as well as the pistons and rods..i only plan to run about 10-12 psi thru an intercooler. any advise you guys can give me?
The trip across the mountains this time of year might be tricky
Ive talked with 87csx692 about this a bit, my question is If he put on a "G" head it will get the compression back why will this not work ? Car has mopar performance computer for 2.5 auto. ive read on here they need more fuel so that should help. also ive read they need alot of timing on a later turbo engine, im sure that has to do with killing the compression. ??
