[DMCForum] Re: Feeling pretty please with myself....



Ahhhh....a PRV built for turbo?

What variant is this? How much horsepower will it put out? Will you
keep the stock transmission?

It looks icky. Glad you're cleaning it up. What did it come out of?
It must be cool to find these engines so readily in your bone-yards.
You can hardly find them here.

Contrary to initial appearance, the turbo will fit... just. Had to
get the tape measure out to be sure. It's the pipework that makes it
too long so they'll have to be re-made. Also have to hack off the
intercooler pipework (shame to lose that embossed logo) because it'll
get in the way of the AC compressor (although the mounts for the
compressor are there), and I'll have to get a new crankshaft pulley
made with a smaller pulley for the compressor drive
