You could add the turbo manifold, turbo, intake manifold and fuel injection system from the E-15t. The main obstacle would be getting some sort of engine managment to run this system. I used the TEC-II o do this but that will run you over a grand. Too bad JWT doesnt make some sort of program for the stock e-16 computers.
no the stock e-15t ecu would not work. Keep in mind that the e-16 has completly different engine characteristics than the e-15t. For instance, the compression ratios. There is no way the e15t ecu would work with a turbocharged e16 block
When I was running the e-15/16T motor I built, I was using a electromotive TEC-II stand alone engine managment system. These run about $1200 and using a dyno and a laptop can be programmed to run just about any engine.
There are proably cheaper options out there though. Maybe 800 or so for a Haltech system.
I use an SDS system on my cars and I love the friendly user programmer. They cost anywhere between $900-$1200, but it's well and worth the investment as you can use the system over and over again on different applications.
It's a good system if you know a little about the characteristics of basic timing and you're eager to learn more. This a real time tuning system that's very good if you have somebody that knows how to program or knows how to drive your car and you program. It's fun and I wouldn't trade for "Not-a".....
