420a rebuild (completely re-done)

Ok, so I need to rebuild the motor of my 96 GS Eclipse. It has a turbo on it though. Its a candy green showcar and has now been parked for like 6 months and Im ready to get it running again. I am looking to rebuild it to hold a turbo pushing preferably 12-15 psi, and capable of being driven daily. I dont know where or how to begin to look for parts though. Can someone please point me into the right direction as to maybe a rebuild kit that can hold 12-15 psi or maybe all individual parts so that I can make this thing into a monster. Also, is there a website that already sells 420a's that are rebuilt, turbo ready, because it would be a lot easier to just do that. This would be such a great help.

Does anyone know of some pretty good turbo kits (including intercooler)

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

*Sticks hand in air*

My fault....I assumed you were being serious as I hadn't read the thread (due to me not knowing anything about engine types...). That's the last time I trust you!...I am still somewhat confused about where the Neon came in to the equation though....

*Moves back*

Neon came into the equation due to Neons and the Non turbo eclipses both having the 420a motor. So those two cars had interchangeable parts inbetween them. Now make up your mind Cliffy

I honestly don't understand why he would want to turbo the n/a engine anyway. Thats kinda like buying the gs, rs, or gs-t and wanting to make it AWD. If the turbo is what you want why not get it to begin with?
