Installing a turbo on a 2nd Gen Probe GT is actually not that difficult. Assuming that a halfway decent kit is purchased, all that remains is putting the wrench time. There are a number of things that need to be removed or relocated, and also the transaxle cradle and transverse members need to be cut and welded. As long as you've done your research, have competent friends that know a turbo and common sense you should have no problem. Mine took 1 week on a 1993 PGT and that included all supporting mods for a turbo and an intercooler. If you have any questions you can shoot me an email at: albrechteja@aol.com and I'd be happy to help.

To turbocharge a 4 cyl, non turbo probe, (assuming its an 1988-1993) you need to to a few things. First, of cource, locate an exhaust manifold, turbo and down pipe (exhaust pipe that leaves turbo) from a 1988-1993 ford probe turbo. Seeing as how the car is not stock turbo, the block does not have the oil return line tapped into the block, there is no oil supply line to the turbo either. These will have to be made. Also this IHI turbo is water cooled. Additional water hoses will have to be routed. To get filtered and pressurized oil to the turbo you need to make a modification at the oil filter. There is an adapter that is availiable, here is the link (mostly used for an oil cooler)http://www.jcwhitney.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product?storeId=10101&Pr=p_Product.CATENTRY_ID%3A2000861&productId=2000861&catalogId=10101 This is where you will get your oil to and from the turbo You will also need to tap into the heater hose system to get water to and from the turbo. Lots more to do still...

A turbo timer lets some oil run through the turbo after hard use. You can accomplish the same thing by letting the engine run a minute before you cut the ignition.

its not too hard. had to do mine 2 weeks ago because some idiot smashed my window breaking in.

i wouldn't bother just get a turbo 4g63. the compression is higher on the non turbo 4g63. and the turbo 4g63 has oil squiters to cool the pistion and cylinders. you will spend as much money putting a turbo on your car as the difference would be selling your car and buying a 1g tsi awd

Open the hood and stand on the driver's side of the car, you should see the transmission. In the top right corner there are two 14MM bolts, your starter is back there, after bolts are removed, reach back there and disconnect the wires from the starter then pull it out. Shouldn't be too hard. Not sure on the automatics though.

If you step on the pedal and have no power or it's hard to accelerate you might want to get it looked at.

When you open up your hood look down on the driver's side below the radiator. It should be a white wingnut looking thingy with a tiny hose pointed to the ground. I have 1995 Ford Probe, and I found this out the hard way last month. You can also feel it from the bottom of you car when you stick your hand in

Need more information. Have you flushed the brake fluid in the last 100k miles? http://www.marksatterfield.com

i have a 2004 mondeo, that found it dead hard to start, especially on cold mornings, and had a hard time building up any power at all. All i did was change the oil, oil filter, fuel filter and air filter and she back running grand, if that doesnt work and the car has a turbo, listen for a whine when the engine is running, this usually means the turbo is going or check the turbo pipe for an air leak.

take off the headlight and the motor assembly. you cab take apart the meachanism and see a round plate that makes electrical contact. gently sand this plate to get it clean and the light should go up and down again. I did this with my 1990 probe. it's not hard.

Go to the auto parts store and ask. That is a pretty dumb question or pure lazyness how hard is it to go to the part store and tell them what you want and see how much it costs

The rajay range of turbo come with a carbon seal as standard. They are getting hard to come by now as production stopped in 2008

I had a hard time finding this relay also. I went to the Ford Dealer and looked it up in the service manual. The fuel pump relay is the one in fuse box by the battery; the relay is located top right(green nf02) listed on cover as circuit relay.

It is not that hard to replace a fuel pump in the 1970 Ford Torino.

My 1991 740 volvo turbo doesnt start specially during the morning.Is it comes with a cold start valve?

Meat is generally cooked to under 200 degrees and candy's hard crack stage is 300-310 degrees, so the standard digital probe probably cannot handle the intense heat. And the probe wire might hit the burner. And the sugar may seal the probe beyond your ability to clean it.

The #1 cause of hard starting a 1991 ford explorer is having lost your keys
