Well welcome to FF, not sure if you will get to many answers here for your questions, but you never know. What I do know is that if there are alot of miles on your engine, a turbo may not be to reliable, may want to have the engine totally rebuilt before a turbo.

Yeah Thanks man - i hope so to

I think it is similar to the Merkur XR4Ti that was sold in the States back in the day.

I believe the Sierra is the same as our XR4Ti, if so you might want to talk to Ray over on FJ. Here is his ride:
