Plenty of completed turbo builds about.

Ranging from bolt on GReddy kits, to full custom turbos with forged engines, to engine swaps.

N/A vs turbo is down to a personal preferences and hp goals vs budget.

This is what I see people saying when people ask about it, but as I stated all the topics I find are in complete ones rangeing from little details to a nice bit, it would be great if u could point me towards some topics or anything that has either fully finished bolt on turbo kit or N/A or even a 1jz engine swap, thereally is also the idea of putting mr2 turbo internals and head n turbo ect on a tezz block but I'm not sure if that would work out

There's a good place to start.

My car was factory with mild na mods, then I had a GReddy kit running 4psi (155kW) then extra fuel mods to 10psi (197kW), then rebuilt engine with forged internals and cams etc bigger turbo (276kW) then bigger turbo again (355kW). I have a build thread on Altezzaclub.org.nz but it's very sparsely detailed.

im not sure if this right place to ask,

would the head and/or the internals from a mr2 turbo fit onto the block of a black top beams engine?
