by "7m turbo motor" do you mean the 7m-gte? the 7m-ge is a naturally aspirated motor.Is it better to go with a 7mge turbo motor or go with the 5mge and add a turbo? Will the 7mge bolt to the 5mge 5-speed? I would rather go with getting a turbo and put it on a 5mge but I don't know?
twin turbo motors: 1jz-gte or 2jz-gte, very similar motors, one is 2.5L, the other 3.0L. the one on ebay you saw was probably a 1jz-gte (a very cheap one i might add... unless it was a 1g-gte, in which case, it might not be worth swapping in-- that motor is a very old 2 liter twin turbo i-6).What about the newer twin turbo motors. I have seen a bunch on ebay selling for $899. A few came with a auto trans.
