i'm about to buy a '92 coupe with 152K miles. i wonder how long it would last with a turbo kit?

also, where is a good place to find cheap silvia frontend conversion other than www.jspec.com? (http://www.jspec.com?)

I'd would really reccomend a rebuild before installing a turbo, but if absolutely can't wait just do the norm.....compression test on all cylinders, check for leaks anywhere, ect. Again I strees a rebuild...although it does depend on what kinda boost you'd like to run.

How much would it typically cost to do a engine rebuild? pistons, rings and rods.
