3rd gen twin turbo setup on 2nd gen non turbo 13b?

question is will it work? both turbos, manifolds, piping... everything. will it all bolt directly on a 1988 non turbo motor? Need to know asap!

On a non turbo, no. That is assuming you have a 6 port engine. Also... Don't take this to heart but the stock TT on the FD sucks for the most part. Save up and buy a single turbo made for the N/a FC.

Take it from a TT owner... :2cents:

yes it will fit.. as in the manifolds will bolt up however as the previous post suggests. it is not a great setup as it will have to be modified extensively ie you will not be able to run the turbos sequentially as they were designed so the benefits of doing this are at best very little. you will also have a new problem with the longevity of the NA motor. the rotors and housings were not designed to handle the increase of pressure from turbo charging... your best bet here if your bent on putting a turbo motor in a non turbo shell is to source out either a turboII motor harness ecu etc and bolt that in. find essentially a front clip from an fd and drop the whole motor tranny ecu etc in.
