Hey, guys have a huge problem i love my 850 glt always wanted it to be turbo though. Well just a couple days ago my engine went. so i decided to buy a engine with 100K on it. But when i got the engine i realized it had the clamp for the intercooler piping on the top by the upper engine mount so its a turbo engine!!! Now i can do one of two things get rid of the engine or the guy i baught the engine off of said he has a turbo wagon and i can get the ecu, turbo, piping and intercooler for next to nothing! I have no idea what to do is a turbo onversion easy or what???? please help

No way he will just charge me up the ass and how do I know that when I bye a new clutch and timing belt for it, how do I know he even put it in?? But me and my friend who has swapped an 850 R engine out and put a new one in will be helping me. Is there realy that much if a problem cuz the engine is turbo I'll get the ecu and everything els I will need I don't expect that much tuning cuz the ecu should keep the engine runing factory stock.
