    Hi everyone.

    im thinking about realising a dream and getting an 81 turbo thats forsale on ebay atm, thing is its been de-turbo'd and apparently doesnt run right, it will not idle after a long run.

    any ideas where the problem might be. i have spoken to the garage thats working on the problem and he says they cant fine tune the carb so he thinks thats where the problem is.

    im not to keen on getting one thats been de turbo'd as finding the manifolds will be a pain but its a very good example for the price

    any thoughts welcome

    Rob

    Depends on some things.
    In 1981, the carb had electric plugs running to the computer.
    But cars sent to canada, didn't.
    Taking the turbo off, requires changing the intake.
    Did they keep the computer carb?
    You may want to ask this question over on:
    301 Garage
    There are people there with more info than me.

    Hope this helps,

    George :beach:

    Thanks George...

    1981 is a Computer controlled Qjet setup and is
    quite different.

    I have some carborated turbo stuff it that helps: intake and exhaust manifolds, up pipe, turbo w/carb. It's not complete setup but it's a start.
