I believe that the turbo outlet does not line up with the inlet tube and will require modificaton to fit.

You will need to fabricate a down pipe from the turbo (stevens cat bypass pipe might fit)

Silencer box will need to be specialy made as the stevens box will not fit and finaly the turbo mecanical waste gate is set at 12psi (i think) so you will need to make sure that you are not overboosting if you run with 12psi you will need to adjust timing and disconnect the lotus blow off valve on the plenum.

Other than that i think its a straight swap :rolleyes:

I have plans of doing it to my 84 turbo the next time the manifold or waste gate break. Keep us updated if you decide to proceed.

Thanks Ajay.... well i have the manifold and turbo, and should be on the engine in a few weeks time... still need to get the carbs rebuilt... then its back in with engine and with any luck the old girl will be back on the road.. its been nearly two years since the head gasket went and thats what prompted the full rebuild... i will let you know how it all goes....
