opinion on this turbo 02


Recommended Posts


I found this ad on craigslist and wanted some opinions on the car... please.

I have always wanted a turbo car, though I am not sure about a toyota turbo on a m20 6 cylinder. I have never heard of this setup, does anyone know if this is common, and or reliable sounding horsepower? I want something streetable, not a dragster or anything.

And, considering the other mods, does it sound like a good deal?

doesnt sound bad to me, but such a project can be a can of worms. you dont know what the guy realy did.

you buy a project, thats it.

The CT26 turbo was fitted to some inline toyota 6 and is not bad at all, iirc it was manufactured by IHI before so it may not be a "toyota" turbo in real.

My guess is it is properly sized for such engine, maybe on the small side.

fwiw, i have toyota pistons in my turbo 02 ;)

he's on this forum... so you should be able to get plenty of details and maybe even a project blog. Think he was looking to buy a truck now...
