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 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
