The turbo isn't worth much at all. Sell it with the motor, and then get a new 1.8 turbo system.

I'm not interested, but if you read the noob faq, introduced yourself, and put your location down, then you'd probably get a lot more replies.

I suspect someone trying to sell stuff by making some quick posts....maybe we should let him start a part-out thread is he promises to use the money to go to school and take English classes?

You can buy a manifold for $450 that'll put your Greddy turbo onto your 1.8, and retain your Greddy downpipe: M-Tuned Greddy Turbo Kit 1.8L Engine Swap Manifold

Sell the complete 1.6 car, with turbo, to a friend of yours for $100, and then buy it back from him for $150. Run it in the 24 Hours of Lemons.
