for the amount of time and money it costs to do this swap youll save money by selling your current car for the turbo one.

i agree with chase. the motors are flipped 180 degrees so you would have to fab motor mounts and a lot of other brackets. i was going to do this but sold my 99 oz rally and got a 97 gst
