i just got a new job and ive always wanted to turbo my geo, but i want to build the whole motor.

does anyone know where i can order a block from or any really good internals?

i plan on dropping around 6000 in the motor and then getting a tranny that will hold up.

well the thing is that once you do this and spend 6k on the engine. you're going to have to worry about slowing it down so you'll have to buy new brakes. you'll have to make it go straight and turn now.... new suspension. you'll have to keep up with the maintenance... theres more money... it honestly never ends. theres nothing wrong with wanting to make a sleeper. but honestly there are alot better routes to take. for example.... nobody expects to get taken by a GMC jimmy... but a gmc typhoon will wipe the smile off of their face very quickly.

jesus man.....


if you think you can do it..... go for it... but there are some things to consider here...


realligning all the suspension pickup points, making a subframe fit for the rear, or making your own, you have idea how incredibly difficult that is to do.....

Ive had friends swap 3000 gt vr4 rear ends into front wheel drive versions of the same car, and that was a ****ing ordeal

converting this car to awd, especially when there arent any factory examples to source parts from will be ridiculously expensive and difficult...


get a celica gt4 motor (3sgte) and swap it.. that will be plety difficult in itself, and will probably make the **** geo almost undrivable stock... go for it...

Id like to see the halfshafts handle anything but the stock engine

why not just turbo the stocker?? you can source the parts to do a turbo and have it in on a stock motor for under a grand...it wont be stupid fast nut fast to ya...or you could just have internals made to suit for your stock motor...just a couple suggestions to seep you away form the bear of a swap your getting yourself into....

no this motor has 240000 miles on it.
it wont last with a turbo ill do the swap or build the motor and pay to have it installed

are you talking about a 7m swap? or a 2jzgte?

good luck.. Im dubious, but hey, anythings possible... even if it isnt reasonable...

also, where the hell are you gonna put the driveshaft?

inline 6s are long as hell, will it even fit in a geo engine bay? with a motor that long, an intercooler, turbo plumbing etc, I cant picture that fitting

well the engines not going to fit.... period. if he does find a way to fit it he's going to be moving the firewall back quite a ways.

making a new floor plan

building a rear suspension.

reinforcing the whole car. etc. etc. etc. 6k? try 12+ when its all said and done. but i'm guessing if you go to your uncle and sprout that idea he's just going to laugh at you. seriously.
