Mazda 626 Turbo Install
1991 Mazda 626 DX with 2.2L 12 valve F2 motor MTX. Here's the intimate
details of the turbo install.... no
special care was taken what so ever during the install and testing.
I drove it like this for about a week until I got tired of the oil dripping
and pipes blowing off before I ordered fittings for some of it. The oil
feed was tapped into the back of the oil filter to provide "lubrication" to
The garden hoses had to go because they were too soft when heated up...
learned lots of what DOES work and what DOESN'T work. That's for sure! Car
netted a 14.6 in the 1/4 at 98 MPH before I got tired of it.
140,000 on the motor when turbo'd. That
car put up with a lot of abuse. Motor and turbo are still good but I junked the car.
