Also, I don't think you want the 86 turbo. You'll get boost faster,
but you'll run out of efficiency sooner. A really good turbo that'll
flow all the air you could ever need is only about $700. I say only
because the dealer wants over $1000 for a new stock one. If it was
me I wouldn't mess with the manifold OR the turbo until I was ready
to go all out. I broke a stud once that holds the turbo to the
manifold. It was just an all-around pain-in-the-butt to deal with.
You definitely want to take the manifold/turbo out and put it back
in as a unit, even it it's just to change the turbo.
