Yes, the engine can be installed and bolted up. But-- use a turbo ECU with a turbo motor, and a normal ECU for a normal motor. There will be small differences between the cars regarding wire harness install, and small emission bits. Try to preserve as much of the original configuration on the car as possible-- that is what the ECU is expecting.

Yes it will make your life much easier to have the turbo ecu and harness. The turbo injectors have a resistor pack that the non-turbo engines do not use. So that would have to be manually wired in to use stock turbo injectors and ecu.

Thanks to modern workshops, you can slap a turbo on pretty much anything. Just depends how deep your pockets are.. Go Pro, you'll need new exhaust headers and gaskets and rings and ecu... and more

Can ECU remapping damage the turbo?

Depends on how the ECU controls the turbo. If the ECU never lets the wastegate open, the turbo may overspin, which will damage it. On Audi/VW cars, a bad tune can cause an overlean condition, which melts the wastegate flapper door. This will cause your turbo to not boost.

On a 1985 Subaru turbo car will a non turbo engine without turbo charger work?

yes it will but you will need to change the ECU - computer that runs the car / timing / fuel and air ratios. hope this helps :)

How do you tune your ecu for a turbo?

An ECU will require a proper tuning computer system. There a several available on the market. Then the car will require a DYNO test to allow the engine's turbo to be calibrated according to the response of the engine. This allows for the best fuel, air, and spark readings.

Can you put a non turbo engine in a car that has a turbo engine in it?

The short answer is yes, but A LOT of things have to be swapped out. ECU, sensors, dash gauges, complete exhaust system. Your talking about putting in some time and money to make sure everything involved with the turbo taken out and replaced.

What do you need to turbo a car?

A turbo, an intercooler to coll the engine as turbos produce a lot of extra heat, an aftyermarket ecu as the fuel map of your car will have to be tuned, a dyno as your car will have to be tuned on a dyno.Installing a turbo in a naturally aspirated engine will greatly reduce engine life as the parts are not designed to run at such high temperatures and pressures.

Can a turbo car be converted to non-turbo?

yes but you wil need good mechanical knowledge as you would need to do more than just remove the turbo and exhaust manifold the look up what is needed to turbo a car and thing of the process in reverse you wold need to remap the ECU remove turbo, the exaust piping would be changed to turn it in a non turbo and heaps or parts removed and replaced with non turbo parts i would not advise anyone to turn a turbo in to a non turbo as you can have presure issues with the engine and ECU remaping can be hit and miss

Can i upgrade a 1998 non turbo subaru ecu to a more powerful one like a wrx 1998?

No. Turbo engines have different components than the non turbo engines have. Even if the Ecu connector matched at the ecu, the components that the non turbo lacked will set off a check engine light, setting the computer into limp home mode. Not to mention turbos run a more aggressive fuel map and different timing due to lower compression Your best bet, look up Rallitek in google and go there and get a piggyback system designed for your make/model/engine
