Hey guys, ive got an 88 7m-GTE supra but the motor is getting a bad knock and i think the head gasket is going. However, i do have the 7m-ge out of my parts car which is a rebuilt motor. Is it possible to transfer the turbo system from the first motor, to the second. Has anyone done this/heard of it?
Thanks

you can turbo the GE it would just be an NA-T setup. Its possible and not that hard but you will require some tuning as the timing will need to be retarded not advanced as the car comes into boost. also you will need fuel control like a SAFC because you will need to make some tuning changes. I recommend getting a wideband if your going to be doing a na-t setup so you can be completely sure that the fuel is okay and that your not running lean

I could, but if im gunna turbo the N/A and buy the fuel control/tuner, wideband etc, by the time im done it would be easier (and funner) to get the 1jz. For that price i could just rebuild the 7M.
