    My uncle owns a pretty big junkyard and he said he would hook me up if i needed parts...
    I'm thinking about trying to find parts to put together a junkyard turbo kit for the d16z6 in my Rex.
    What would be some good cars to get parts off? Eclipse? Talon?
    Would an older eclipse turbo work? What cars had an efficent intercooler?
    I have no clue what to take a BOV or wastegate off of...
    If you have time, it would be nice to hear your thoughts on what a good junkyard setup would be.
    If you have already built one, please tell me the setup and how it runs.
    I dont wanna boost my motor alot only about 7psi maybe...
    Thanks alot.

    try www.homemadeturbo.com
    I ve been leaning inthis direction for a while now. What most people do is source the turbo from a junkyard then buy an aftermarket intercooler and BOV and make some custom piping. You can get it all from the j/y but I think this method is the best way to go.
