hi guys,im new to the site but know a fair amount about cars,i was wandering if there were any kits out there that i could put on my NA 88 MX6 insted of just a stock turbo system from a junked GT?and i was thinking that the tranny might have to be replaced because of the increased power. about the turbo,iv seen some really nice ones posted on here and was wandering if i could just get on of those a turbo manifold and bolt it on,ok what am i missing,but i would really love to have the turbo on the car,ne help is appreciated,also the 626 ,probe,and MX6 r basically the same car right?

Have you conducted a search? All your answers, and more, are in one.

Basically, yes, there is a turbo kit. Racingmazda, I believe it goes for around $3k.

You're probably going to want to buy a GT, regardless of whether want to hear that or not. I have been there and had an LX, and trust me, if you want the turbo then you want the GT. There's more to it than just a turbo and tranny. Everything is different.. flywheel...clutch...control arms... axles...rear brakes... wiring.. pistons... suspension...

good luck with your search. My suggestion is to find a GT that needs a little work such as a clutch, tranny, or turbo. Those are a few common things to go out on these cars and you may find a steal if you're willing to get dirty.

It is 110hp (I can't remember the TQ for the N/A), I have the same motor except its turboed , the ingition timming is mechanicaly controlled ect. this motor is knowen as the F2T, and it puts down 145hp with 190tq stock.
