At my local junkyard there is a mazda 323 with a 2.2l motor and the best part is it has a turbo. i need to know if there is a possibilty that it wold bolt up to my 1.9. Also anyone looking for a mx3 interior there are currenlty 3 in the junkyard one with leather but the drivers seat needs redone it has rips.

turbo may bolt to the old escort gt-turbo/EXP manifold if you can find one ever, the compressor housing will swap to the escort/EXP turbo too.

the manifold wont bolt to your head ever in a million years however.

btw, MX3 seats rock.

Dude, you are so not ready to turbocharge it's not even funny. I'm pretty sure that you're talking about the iHi RHB5 turbocharger that was used on the L4 2.2L mazda engine.

The cost of turbocharging varies greatly, depending on the quality of your installation. It can be anywhere from around a couple hundred bucks to several thousands of dollars.

I suggest you use a little thing called a search button first. Turbocharging isn't something that can be done overnight to a person who is "new to the performance world."

i undertsand that is a lot of work but i have a friend who has a 85 and a 93 mustang supercharged and a old malibu and he races all of them and im sure he is willing to help me. im not sure im ready to turbo either but i really dont want to let this thing get away it is only $40 for the turbo and $20 for the intercooler. it is definitly and aftermarket mod on the car someone did a poor job of installing it. im not completley new to the auto world only to the small car/ tuner world. Im am just looking for advice on how well it will work and what i will need to complete the install. and make it function like it should im sure i will have a lot more question i need answered before im done with this thing but it is a learning experience for me that i would like to try.

the 323 was the 1.6l B6t i thought. Maybe its a Mx6 GT with the 2.2 turbo motor in it.? If its DOHC its the 1.6l b6t, if its single its the mx6/probe gt turbo motor.
