We once converted a botched up turbo conversion back to the stock nonturbo setup. The customer's
car kept blowing headgaskets, as the compression ratio is higher on the nonturbo. This customer had paid a shop 3500.00 to screw his car up.
we charged him 1000.00 to make it right. I would try to find a decent turbo car, or at least a turbo engine, complete with everything, to drop in . Joe
