I have a chance to get a turbo for 100, well it is the whole car. I have a 2.2 in my cav now. the turbo is commin out of a dodge daytona 2.2 will it go on my car, or will it be a pain in the ass and not worth the hassel. i got my cav for free so i can put some cash in it. i didnt get the TRUE Z b/c i got this one , i wanna get some good h.p out of a 2.2. any suggestions??

dude, puttin a turbo on a car not meant for a turbo is really hard. Not only are you using a turbo from a different brand of cars, but the turbo from a daytona ( im assuming a pacifica or shelby) wich is probably a garret. If you want a turbo for your car, your better off looking for a turbo sunbird and transplanting the whole motor. Since I'm gonna assume the cav u got for free probably has high miles, it has the original pisyons and rings in, if (and I say if) you managed to hook up the turbo and get it to work, the compression from the stock engine will probably be too high, and you will more than likely end up poppin that motor.
