Well I hope to get the turbo motor in the next couple of weeks and I am wondering if the stock clutch will handle 10 lbs of boost.. Also can the stock injectors handle this boost also.. THanks guys!

Hi 83Zwigen-------------The clutch on your '83 n/a is a 225mm unit, providing it's stock. The 5-speed turbo cars were equipped with a 240mm unit, and for good reason. The smaller n/a clutch is inadequate for this application. You can also find the 240mm clutch in some of the 2+2 cars, I think '82 and '83 2+2's have them.

The stock injectors should handle 10 lbs boost without a problem if you're talking turbo injectors. Just be super aware of any knocking or pinging sounds for the first little while.

will the turbo clutch work on an na?? Is there anything else that needs to go to make the upgrade?? My clutch is getting not so fresh, and the petal pressure is really light, like so light I can press it to the floor with one finger. Mabee I need a new string for this one.

I ran the n/a 225mm clutch on my turbo swap for several thousand miles and 2 dozen passes at the drag strip up to 9 psi non-intercooled. It slipped noticeably at 15psi with a IC. If your in a pinch it will work for awhile but start saving for a new clutch cause you'll eventually need it.
