It will be cheaper to replace the turbo as you would have to change too much to not run turbo, Your car is set up to run turbo so will run lower compression than non turbo version meaning it will feel pretty guttless without it. i hope this helps.

I have a 2002 gsxr 1000 I took the turbo off of it. And changed radiators. Does it have to have an oil cooler or can it be bypassed


Your bigger problem is that it is not going to run very well without the turbo unless you increase the compression ratio and revise the fueling to suit. I doubt that this will be a successful conversion otherwise.

The car wont go over 25 miles an hour. I had a starting problem the shop told me that it was the fuel pump. They replaced the fuel pump. When it went in it ran great no problems when it was running now...


OK, your turbo is bad now.
Sometimes bad things happen to cars. And the bad things show up one after another. I don't think that changing the fuel pump caused the turbo to go bad.

Turbo its bad?


Well after doing that, if the turbo wasn't bad before then you have just broken it anyway as it MUST have a constant oil supply when the engine is running.

I have a 1988 rx-7 with new motor it dies at around 3000 rpm


actually no it wouldnt immediately. As long as all your fuel and air lines are hooked up (i.e. vaccum) your fine! Because 1988 didnt have a programmed sync with it's computer to run with or without the turbo it has little affect. But, it will lag your power after you start sometimes it will shut off. But it does run without it. A turbo system is just a superman air induction system. Thats all.I have seen one drive without Turbo. Why would you need to run it without turbo anyways?
Hope this helps more than the other guy commenting.

Electrical? no speedometer no overdrive no third gear no wait to start light


check fuse #9 in the fuse box for being blown or lacking power...if there is no power to the fuse it is possible the ignition switch is bad
