It would depend on the year of the motor. IF there is no distributor on the motor, you cannot do this without a computer. The timing for the ignition comes from a CPS. You cannot convert that process without a computer. IF you are looking at performance issues, you can always change the programming of the chip in the ECM.

SOURCE: turbo

okay, for a 16g on a 2g you should get an install kit. its the easiest way to do it. you could also piece your own together. i would recomend getting one HERE .

for a complete step by step guide w/ pics, check out the VFAQ

now i hope your 16g came with a wastegate actuator because you can't use the one off of the T25. if it didn't come with one, you can use a 1g actuator off of either the 14b or the 13g.
now, the internal wastegate/wastegate actuator isn't adjustable.
for more boost, you can get a boost controller, or
if you want to increase your boost by 2-3psi you can remove the restrictor in the wastegate solenoid. here is a step-by-step guide for removing it.
(if you want to run more boost than that your gonna want to get larger fuel injectors first.)

if your just running a stock ecu, no tuning is required. but if you already have a tunable system (like DSM Link, E-manage, AEM or even a SAFC) it wouldn't hurt to adjust the tune a little.

Want to install a turbocharger kit onto Jag s-type 2000 3.0L V6, what type of modifications must be done if any to install the turbocharger?

The modifications would be intensive to say the least, I am personally building a taurus SHO Motor for a turbo and I am doing pistons, con. Rods, crank, cams, larger valves, and the compression ratio is going from 10.5:1 all the way down to 8.5:1 all internals forged of course and I am looking into getting custom sleeves made for the block to ensure power and longevity I would at least do pistons, conn. rods, a lower compression ratio (at least 8.5:1), and also head stud conversion because the weakest link on any kind of ford duratec, Vulcan, or related engines is the head bolts. As a stock engine you might be able to push 5 psi without launching your heads to china and 5 psi is good for like 40 HP defiantly not worth the money you would pay for the turbo kit. But in my opinion the hardest part is actually getting manifolds made to turbo it unless you just buy the manifold from shosource but then it's soooo not worth the time and money to push 5 psi I would do the same things that I described above that I am doing to my engine so that you can easily push 10 psi good for an easy 100+ HP and foot pounds of torque.

Hello...I have a 1990 Ford F-250 with 70,000 orginial has the 300 6 with a auto has a knock when I put it in mech said it was a bad wrist pin...come on...the 300 6 is one of...

I would probaly agree, these are very reliable engines.Most of the time a bad wrist pin wull be noisy at load and higher rpms, not at idle in gear.Cracked flywheel is possible , loose converter bolts is unlikely since ford uses a crimped bolt.These engines sometimes will build up carbon on top of the piston and usually running a can of SEA FOAM through the intake will take care of it.The carbon can cause a slight knock and may sound like a wrist pin or rod bearing.Good luck!

I am removing the motor out of my 97 Subaru legacy its twin turbo 5 speed manual // question ??? do you have to unbolt the fly wheel or does it all come out with the transaxal if it does have to be...

The flywheel does not need to be removed, the clutch actuator does. That is if you are only removing the engine. I have found with this engine, it is easier to remove both the engine and trans at the same time while bolted together, then separate the two on the floor. If you are going the separation route you will find the actuator near the starter with the clutch slave cylinder attached. This engine trans setup uses a pull type clutch. If you do not disconnect the actuator that pulls the clutch away from the flywheel before separating the engine from the trans there will be problems.

How many bolts hold on the tubo on a 1996 f350

The second pic looks like the clip for the EBPV actuator rod coming from the base of the turbo pedestal that hooks to the EBPV tang on the turbo exhaust housing.

Just slide the clip toward turbo pedestal to release clip. Then push down on rod and it will slide off the post.
the EBPV AND ROD IS THE ONE YOU GOT TO POP OFF. Reach under the turbo where that rod is and you'll feel that clip, push it towards the turbo, to the right, it will unlock it then loosen all your clamps, babies but in the back, exhaust pipe on the left then remove then two turbo bolts in the middle, their holding the turbo to the pedestal, NO GET THAT TURBO OUT OF THERE AND NEXT IS THE PEDESTAL BOLTS, theirs four, get them out and pull the pedestal. click this link directly -------- for more help with diagrams please click this link directly ------- check out.keep updated.this will help. thanks.

We have an 87 4Runner. We replaced the turbo 4cyl

It should only start in P and N. Is this a 4 wheel drive? Check the transfer case if it is. If not check to make sure torque converter bolts were put in. If they weren't it won't do anything.

Motor swap

If your planing on swaping the 2.0 non-turbo(420a) to the 2.0 turbo(4g63t) your problem will be that the motor and transmission are on opposite side of one another. My GST has the trans on the passenger side and the motor on the driver. The 420a is just the opposite. If your serious about it you should get the motor rebuilt with higher performance crank, pistons, rods, exc.  And they make turbo kits for the 420a.  But you'll need better fuel delivery and some mild tuning.

Engine Swap

There are several engines that will fit the 2.2l Ecotec, 2.4L high out put motor, and I have actually seen a chevy cavalier that has a 3800 V6 in it if you want to go all out but in most cases sticking with the ecotec motor or the 2.4 High Out Put motor would be best they are two of the best motors for these cars and since the Sunfire is basically the same car as the cavalier almost any thing motor wise is inner change able between cars depending on the motors i own an 2004 chevy cavalier LS sport and a buddy of myn has a 2004 Pontiac Sunfire and both have the 2.2L Ecotec and are both Manual trans and even most of the interior parts are the same except for some of the dash board components hope this helps you out
