i fell in love with the 88 turbo 2 about 10 years ago i was working in a scrap yard and i found a black one out in the back field well the guy who owned the place said i could have it for 100 bucks well i was getting the cash together when i found out it was a flood car and that the water was about 3 feet above the roof of the car so i passed on the car and kept looking well about a year ago i gound a 1988 black turbo 2 for sale on the classifieds for 750 bucks so i started to jump on it lol well i got it and then i learned of my poor little girls past lol she have been wrecked not too bad though and the last time it was registered was 1998 lol well i have some friends who are rotorheads they cane and helped me took us a few days but we got it started it needs a rebuild so we stopped

It can be done... all depends on how much time/money you devote.
Typical builds using the stock S4 or S5 block run a 60-1 turbo (BNR Stage 3), standalone EMS, streetport, supporting fuel upgrades, cooling and an upgraded intercooler yield about 315whp to 350whp at 12psi and 16psi respectively.
For 400 or more, that will come with a larger T4 turbo (or a highly modified, no holds bar twin setup... but only one person was crazy enough to try it ;) ).
If you're willing to swap the engine, I'd run the 13B-RE or 13B-REW. Better ports and intake designs. Those motors with large single T4 turbos will make 400whp on stock intake ports and 16-18psi. Streetported and a good tune will get you over 400... the exact number depends on many variables.
Half bridge any of those motors to get another 10-20% power than a streetport, full bridge gets another 5-10% over the half bridge and thats as far as most people go.

i have thought avout the 13B-RE but i dont know where to find one :001_07: and i have always liked the idea of a twin set up or even the 20B :o16: but i would very much like an RE
