Default Turbo Questions?

I took out a garrett turbo from a saab and was wondering if it will fit in my prelude. its a bc1. also in the front looks fine but the back is a spinning fan looking thing, it doesnt have the housing around the fan...does it need that to be mounted?

Well first of all you will need the pipings. The turbo will probably work as long as the pipings are in place. You will need to do a couple of modification to the engine inorder for the turbo to fit but it will work.

yes you need to get the housing for it. and you can mount it but to be honest since you are going to need the piping and all the oil lines for it and you will need to find a manifold for it to mount onto the block and stock turbo kits only push out up to about 2psi so you are not going to get much out of it, even if it is a garret. and its gonna cost a pretty penny to get it on there so i would just check for another turbo kit on ebay. i got one for my b18c1 for about $580 shipped.pushing 10psi of boost and its capable of alot more. comes also with a turbo timer, guages. everything needed to put it on just plug and play and you git it. i would really look into that because if you buy the guages, the oil lines, the turbo timer, the manifold, the houseing for that turbo, the piping and intercooler. you are looking at a good $490 to $500 already. might as well get a better turbo t3/t4 hybrid for $80

Sounds like your up for a job. I'm sure you can use the turbo but your gonna have to do some custom fabricating.

No offense, but it sounds like you're getting in way over your skill level.Buy the book "Maximum Boost" by Corky Bell - it'll tell you everything you need to know.You can't just duct tape a turbocharger to an engine. You'll need a new exhaust and intake manifold, a wastegate, a blow off valve, a way to control ignition advance under boost, a way to control mixture enrichment under boost, all the piping, etc. It's not a simple system. And if you don't know what you're doing, you can completely destroy your engine. Read up!
