    I can get a first gen eclipse turbo for $2000.

    I have it sold sans turbo and goodies for $2000. Maybe more if I can get it running.

    I will probably take off anything I can use to help me turbo my b16 with.

    So the question is...
    What would it take to get the car running without getting it a new turbo.
    Can I just get non tubrbo injectors,exh mani...??
    What all would I be looking at having to replace?

    Guess I should have said questions are.

    exhaust manifold and dowpipe first off, youd have to also plug all the fittings for the oil and coolant lines. you dont need injectors, unless your dead set on takin those, you can pocket some non turbo injectors at the yard. probably a computer, and maybe some vacuum lines yadda yadda, probably a bunch of other unforeseen crap that will cost you a fortune and alot of time.
    good luck

    i would just loop the oil and coolant lines if you can hide the "loops"

    try and find a nonturbo wrecked for a 200 bucks and make it work...
