a buddy of mine has turbo, just need wastegate, intercooler, etc...

yes mines a coupe. 850 for a good srt motor is damn good. i/c are cheap enough when you find them. and the srt turbo comes with the wastegate cast into the manifold. is it the acctuator you need?
It's not the fall that hurts, it's the sudden stop at the bottom!

motor has about 90k on it. if i heard story correctly some older woman drove it and a garbage truck hit car and totaled it. so my guess is, it wasnt beaten on.

dont exactly what i need for turbo setup, only saw some cell phone pics of it and saw no turbo.

does it come with wire harness and can you pull any parts from the car you want or just the motor?? if so if i were you i would pull the whole dash all interior pretty much strip the car and use as much as possible if its just the motor no wire harness or computer its prolly gonna run you some money for that stuff also.. just a heads up

thanks man.

stopped by yard after work, body was stripped and shell was crushed. some kid bought whole body kit for his base 2.0. Cant wait to see the blue neon with a OB srt kit a the local meet. :lol:

saw motor. needs wiring harness and computer. i know what computer prices are but dont have a clue for the wiring harness. any idea? also priced a stratus 2.4 for 250 bucks.

if the srt is gunna be more of a pain the a stratus motor, ill save some cash and turbo a stratus 2.4.

throw the srt internals in the stratus motor and turbo it. internals can be had for cheap. you'll spend less than 500 bucks going this route. however it will be more work than just getting the srt motor. imo the work is worth saving 300 plus dollars.

figured out id save about 350 bucks with stratus build rather then SRT.
