It's a mazda 626 turbo! Can anybody tell me anything about this car at all? I never really took a good look at it since the boneyard was closing in 15 minutes and I needed to grab a part for the EGT, but I did get a chance to snap a few pics after tearing half the car apart just to get the hood open. Here they are: (click on the thumbnails for the full 1600x1200 pic)

The entire engine bay (12 valve, 2.2L turbo):


The intercooler:


The turbo! (everybody likes that) :)


I noticed that it has a VAF very similar to our VAF's, only instead of the "U-type" (like ours) or the "B-type" like the RX-7 turbos, it's a "K-type". It looks identical to the B-type RX-7 non-turbo VAF.
Is there anything I can pull off this 626 to put on my GT? Even if there were, I think the rust would keep me from doing it :)

I wasn't planning on pulling it out, but I may consider it depending on how hard the conversion would be.

Is the 626 a FWD, RWD, or AWD? I don't think I'm even close to ready to pull it, let alone re-do the mounts in my GT, and then find a new tranny, ECU, fuel pump, turbo timer, etc etc etc. That would be insanely expensuv and my GT is already a piece of **** anyways.

I just thought it was kinda cool and you guys might want to know about it. Maybe I could pull something nifty off of it and put it on my car, I dunno, but I agree, there must be something seriously wrong with the engine for it to be just sitting there. It's one of the very very few cars in the yard that are turbo'd.

Well I doubt I have the tools or the experience to remove it, and chances are that there is something wrong with it. The car has been there for a while, and you can tell that it has has a lot of attention because most of the rest of the car is gutted out.

Either way, I've still got pics of it, I just dont have the ftp server space to host everything at once, so hit me up on AIM and I'd be more than happy to send them over.
