I know where one is complete with turbo. I have to talk with the guy to make sure he hasn't got rid of it. It's in Anderson, South Carolina. I don't know how far you live from there. Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
so I'll have your email address and not have to look for it in here. If you are interested I'll go talk to him and get his phone#. I was planning on eventually buying it for the turbo,but I already have one turbo(just turbo-not the engine) and it looks like you need it more than I do. jtyler
