Default Turbo size

What size is the turbo on the ea82? It is a 88 if that makes any difference.


Edit: I was wondering cause my insurance is going to be high very soon and I might just get another beater. So I would like to use the turbo from the gl-10 maybe i should just keep the whole engine since thats the only thing good on it. Anyway I would like to make my own turbo setup and I might mess around with the gl 10 intil I get another car. Not that really makes any difference in why I want to know the sixe of the turbo. Did that make sense to you?

The RHB5 series was a pretty popular turbo during the 80s (though various trims were used in various cars). In fact, IIRC, the one in the T-bird Turbo coupe was a bigger trim than just a VF7. The early 90s Legacy Turbo also used the RHB5 series but in the VF10 and VF11 trims. There are a few threads on the USMB board (http://www.ultimatesubaru.net/forum/) about hybridizing RHB5 turbos by swapping in the larger compressor wheels from Legacies, T-bird Turbo Coupes, etc but keeping the stock housing and exhaust turbine.

Here's a junkyard turbo list that I found on the web a while back. Unfortunately it is in Word format, but if you search Google for "junkyard turbo" you will find it (it was the 3rd result for me) and can use Google's "View as HTML" option:
http://www.student.kun.nl/p.oonincx/...rbo%20List.doc

As you can see several cars used the IHI RHB5 (for example, while scrolling through, the "Ford Escort" listing caught my eye as it has an RHB5).

How come I have never seen turbo versions of all the small cars on the list? Like when was there a turbo Escort, Sprint, Spectrum, and Skunbird?

You'd be amazed what kind of cars have come in turbo versions at some point. Same thing is true with AWD, I've found, too. For example, did you know Dodge made a Caravan Turbo!?

BTW, the Sprint Turbo sounds like a fun car to have. Tiny little econo-commuter car with an inline-3 cylinder and a turbo. Same engine was used later in the Pontiac Firefly Turbo (which wasn't released in the US, IIRC, but was in Canada) which shared the Suzuki Swift chassis.

Yeah I knew about the Turbo Caravan I have seen a couple vids that have them running crazy times at the track. What I wish I could find or make would be a small turbo car like the Sprint or just turbo a Swift.

I never knew about the AWD Tempo or Camry tho that seems kinda wierd. But now it seems like a lot of car companys are coming back out with that kinda of stuff again. Have you seen the AWD Turbo Mazda 323 now that is a car I would love to get ahold of but there very rare. Althought they did just come with a Turbo FWD version I have never seen those for sale anywhere.

Heh.
Awesome list, but they got the Escort years wrong, actually 84-85, not 86.
