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.
