Your best solution wont work because it is an 88 they can only scan '96 and newer when OBD II came out so know what you are talking about before you post
those cars are known for fuelinjection probs. your best bet is to first get your self a fuel pressure regulator and Gauge to determin how much fuel you are pushung and get it tuned up by some one who knows what they are doing because tuning will make or break a turbo car

Do you know if you are pumping in the correct amount of gas. Is the pump going bad and pumping to much. Also check your throtlebody. If you take the vehicle down to a auto part store and have them run it on there computer (for free) they can tell you if any of the sensors are going bad or if some of the basic things have goine wrong.

I have a 1987 chrysler conquest tsi and fuel pump only runs when key is on start not on run but pump fuel lines not hook only power wires to pump is this how it works?

What does it do with the lines hooked up ? Most fuel injected vehicles need an RPM signal to let the computer know the engine is running to let power continue to the pump .

88 dodge conquest tsi no start has spark and has fuel coming out of the injectors

,Use caburator cleaner and spray down the throttle body and put the air duct back on if this start up and then dies your fuel pump is the issue, If you dont have spark and want to test for spark take the lead spark wire from the ignition coil let it hang 1/4 from body ground and have some one crank it if you dont have spark replace the sensor in the distributor.(optic sensor its hall effect). if you have spark and fuel. note the postion of the distributor and move it foward. if it wants to start and cant check for a slipped timing belt,by the way Plymoth made the conquest TSI

I have a 1989 chrysler conquest and dont seem to have a strong vacuum comming from the carbeurator?

Suggest lots of possibilities...I assume it is NOT a TSi... so no Turbo.
If all vacuum lines are attached and in good shape, then you can have a back pressure issue, preventing the flow of burnt gas out of the engine, and therefore a low vacuum.
If you find that the Cat. converter is clogged (strong possibility...) the you can buy one...

I have an orig 60K mile 1988 chrysler conquest tsi automatic that for some reason shifts extremely hard (its either the shifting or the turbo is kicking in to early) im not sure. and there is oil in the...

First thing I'd do is have transmission fluid & filter change done and add only autopar transmission fluid to it, ATF4. Get them or you to make sure they lube all linkages (especially throttle valve cable area, well as some can stick over time & cause problems like your describing. Secondly, cycle your key from off to on, (not start, just to on) back off, back on, back off, back on & leave it on & count flashes from check engine light. It will be 2 digit number but small pause in between, for example: 3 quick flashes, then a pause, then 3 more, will be code 33. 2 quick flashes, pause, 5 more flashes is code 25. when you get 5 flashes, pause, 5 more, thats code 55 which means end of message. Get back to us with results for more info on what to do. These should point everybody in right direction for any trouble your having.

Chrysler conquest turbo charged

I'd almost forgot about that car!!! It was a great little sports coupe that had it's platform based on the Mitsubishi Starion/.Gallant chassis and as far as I know all had 2.6 turbo inter-cooled engines. It was the precursor to the Eclipse which was more of a joint venture with Chrysler.
