Could it be POSSIBLE to get a turbo set up from a first generation ford probe and throw it in a 2nd gen 96GT?

Much appreciated!

Yes... (insert asterix here).


To get the engine management to play properly with the turbo, some tuning will probably need to be adjusted. That's assuming you are running the same block. A straight yes or no is not applicable here as there's a few variables involved. Boosted engines typically run at a lower compression ratio than a naturally aspirated since the added air will increase your final compression. Once there, is your drive train going to be able to handle the added torque and horse power? If your sole goal is a run down a quarter mile, it can be done quickly, if you're wanting to make a performing cruiser, you have to look at the car from the radiator on mack to the differential.
