Brad_H You won't regret it.. Even if you don't use a intercooler, you improve throttle response and flow... I actually got a better idle. BTW, do not forget to change the two wires on the TPS (top wire to bottom wire and bottom wire to top wire. Leave the middle wire). Post pix on your conversion..

Hey will the iac work from my hot air throttle body on the 87 throttle body?

My 84 iac housing fit my 62mm 87 throttle body and the gaskets are the same for the housing. I wonder if it will run bad with the 84 iac sensor?

You can use your stock turbo, but you will top out real quick. You can pick up a ta49 reasonable or 86 turbo. Once you have converted, turbo selection become easier. Just know anything bigger than a ta49 will require a 2800 stall.
