The Probe and the Mazda MX-6 share a lot of parts....

You want to see significant improvements, start with a good cold air intake and a flowmaster exhaust......

Wow..we're close...In Zanesville, you'll find a place called Custom VANS. We do alot of custom work. You could be able to find a turbo. I'll check tonite if I get called into work. I was just in Lancaster today at OUL.
