What kinda of mods would you have to do to a stock 3.1 to put a turbo onto it. I dont know much about engines yet, but i do know that a turbo pushes hot air into the engine, and i know that aluminum and hot dont mix too well, so what would you have to do to keep from messing up your engine because of a turbo? would it be as simple as adjusting compression, or What kinda parts would you need? Also, can you put a 3.1L with a turbo with a straight stock tranny? Do you need to beef the tranny any?

im from southwestern Wisconsin.
Im not just installing the turbo, im buying the turbo arleady on the engine, and installing it into a 91' z. I dunno if the engine will come with anything more than the turbo though, ill have to check into the intercooler.... Really what i meant by the question is what would kind of engine bay mods (or will it fit right unnder the hood)will the engine be a direct bolt onto the stock 3.1l manual tranny? that kinda stuff. the turbo is already on the engine, i just gotta put the engine into the car with the turbo on it.
