    I want a TURBO!!!!!!!!

    I have been looking for a 2.8L Turbo for a long time now.... Anyone got any hookups? I want stock. I may get a larger aftermarket later but I just want a little cheep boost for now.

    I might recommend a super charger...its constant power...Unless you have lightning hands and feet and you can power shift you may not get all the power you want when you want it. remember turbo needs time for the boost to build up...a super charger is always on!!!

    I used to have a Astra with a shortened Corvair 164 64 year with Turbo wind it to red line in 1st then bang shift it into 2nd it would jerk front wheels off pavement it was a blast to drive. Gene

    power shifting 1st to 2nd gear is easy...it's 2nd to 3rd when people start dropping trannies. Do you really want to power shift to keep your turbo pressure built up? go super charger

    I had a supercharger sitting in my garage but didn't have a way to bypass boost when I let out of full throttle. Since the charger was off a VW Corrado, the Corrado's have a boost bypass on the throttlebody's.

    I am looking for boost with MEGA cheep price. There are no superchargers except for after market. ANY AND ALL Aftermarket Power adders are about $3,000.00 and up. I do not have that money right now nor do I want to run up another bill. That's why I am searching for a STOCK turbo since there are a few in junkyards out there, I just can't find them. The Fiero Turbo's are so rare. Does anyone know of any contacts that may possibly have esed STOCK Fiero turbo's? I am tired of seeing $3,000.00 aftermarket turbo's but that seems to be all that's left.

    Fiero's never came with Turbo's stock - all turbo fieros are aftermarket..

    Here's the cheapest one out there - $2000 !

    ? Really? weird. I don't know a whole lot about Fiero's so I gues I was mistaken. I thought there was a few turbo models built. Oh well..... I gues I'll just invest in an engine swap one day. Thanks guys.

    I have a 1982 BMW 745i with 3.2 litre 6 cylinder, w/ turbo, & intercooler.
    It has less than 15K on the new engine.
    I have all receipts, books, & records.
    I will sell the entire car for the 1st $2,500.00
    Turbo may need to be rebuilt if you're doing serious burnouts?
