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.

How hard is it to turbo charge a Ford Probe 4-cylinder?

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...

Does ford focus rs need a turbo timer fitted?

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.


How hard would it be to turbo charge a 1993 eagle talon es?

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

Where is the starter located in a 1989 Ford Probe turbo?

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.


Where is the peacock to bleed the radiator on a 1995 ford probe?

Why is my Ford Mondeo 2000 hard to start and dead on the road?

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.

Why won't my Ford Probe lights go down?

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.


How do you remove the door panel from a 1996 Ford Probe?

Unscrew the screws on the side of the door panal and around the door handle on the inside and pull the window lever off. On Probe's with power opt's, the screws will still be near the controller, just don't pull too hard on the panel. You can unclip the controller once the panel is loose.
