The turbo swap is the easy way to get more power from the 2.6
My 5spd truck will spin right up to 60mph in third gear. I drove my auto/turbo Raider from Colorado to California at speeds up to 80 mph. Without overdrive running 33" tires.
You can find a Starquest donnor for around $800
I have a 92 Blazer that I bought to do the 4.3 swap. But have done two turbo swaps since I bought it. The turbo swap has a cool factor to it also. Or maybe someone will sell you a turnkey one for about $4295. [Linked Image]


Well on my way to becoming that eccentric old man in every town.(crazy as a s#@thouse rat) With a yard full of desireable old vehicles that tells you, Sorry they're not for sale..... Someday I'm going to fix them.

I also am a believer in the turbo swap. As far as swaps go it is an easy one. Are swaps easy? Not for everyone they are.
I used mine both as a play toy and as a tow rig. Towing at any speed is not an issue. Hills who cares. Mine is an automatic, chirps second routinely. Pissed off many cars that tried to get me on the right at a light, even with a trailer. I have run more than 100k miles since the swap. Poor thing is my snow plow now. Man that snow flies when it comes on boost.


Cheers, Charlie

Now if you want the turbo cool factor. And the 4.3 power. Find one of these for a donnor. [Linked Image]

Could your fan clutch be frozen?
That was the problem on my Nissan Pathfinder.

I checked the fan, it's good, I'm just not used to this thing yet I guess. I believe I'll order a cat later this week and see if that helps. I believe that is a Typhoon isn't it? I wish someone made an after market bolt on FI system for this thing.

The 2.6 got fuel injection about 1990, when it was pulled from our market. It was a FWD installation over in OZ. All the bits are available and the intake needs to be adopted to the RWD style needed. Easier to do the turbo swap for a real gain, the turbo adds an easy 100 lb ft of torque, a FI swap will give you 7 to 10. The fuel consumption remains the same.

I have been online the past couple nights checking out Starions and Conquests. Has anyone mentioned boring the 2.6 and decking the block/head? Did it help?

No. Nothing helps. Best thing you can do is have a PERFECTLY, or OVER functioning cooling system. Overheat a 2.6 once, and you're done.

Marnel head, new 3 core OEM, or some sort of custom Radiator, OEM water pump, and new hoses are almost mandatory.

Ditto. As long as the cooling system on a 2.6 is in tip-top shape, the engine should be pretty reliable. Overheat and it's virtually guaranteed to blow a head gasket.
