Are you talkin about junkyard stuff? Sorry to rain on your parade, but the
only passenger car i know of with a larger compressor than a 2.3 is the
GN, and good luck on gettin one of those froma U Pull It.  And if you do
find a buick 3.8 turbo, it has to be from GN.  The non SEFI cars have the
same compressor as the 2.3.  Then again, even if you do find a GN
comrpessor, its not that much bigger anyhow.  T4 stuff is on Deisel
trucks.  Look in truck yards, but if you dont know what you are lookin
for, you mite as well jus call turbonetics and shell out the 3-400 for the
stuff to build an S trim.
FYI, the Saab turbos stink.  they are puny.  my freind was gonna run one
on his 1.7 L VW truck until he found it would be on the small side....He
has 2 of them if you want ot buy them though:)
