Telstar TX5 Turbo

Heya Guys.

My Girlfriend has a 1988 Ford Telstar Turbo (Mazda) and I want to give her a cheap Turbo for Christmas.

Can anyone recommend a turbo we can run at a rather low boost just to up the Power in the 2.2 a bit.

Could you also include an estimation of what the price would be just for the turbo (not installation).

This would be a great help guys - thanks heaps.

Try the fast fours forums. www.Fastfours.com.au then follow the links in the margin. Im sure you would get a quick response from them if you post.
Im not sure if that many people here are turbo minded.

mate its not that easy. the motors are different, you would need a whole new exhaust, different computer, way to much trouble, best bet it to sell it and buy a turbo model. especially because insurance will not cover you and it will no longer be legally registered, because its not a factory turbo.

Re: Telstar TX5 Turbo

Buy a complete turbo engine from Jap importers or better still buy a front cut which will include ecu,dash front suspension and brakes...You'll possibly get whole package for less than aftrmarket ecu and tuned...It will bolt straight in...
