My local wrecking yard sells used T3 turbo for $16. They're less than $250 on ebay, and about $500 new. I think your boy is trying to poke you.

rule of thumb is unless you plan on either rebuilding you motor or just getting a new motor.... stick with the bolt-ons. the turbo (if used for any real gains) will only put unwanted extra stress on an older engine. take the 5 bills and lower your compression first. that is if your really thinking of using a turbo. if not, get some over sized pistons and a cam, cam gear, and a port&polish.... and you'll be smiling when you drop the go pedal!
