Where to buy a small used turbo?

I need a little turbo like off a 2.3L something that can support about 150-200 hp as the engine is just 99 stock. Anybody know where I can get something cheap?

As much as I hate to say it........ go check out some ricer forums. They love those small turbos. I'm sure they have trader pages.

I am trying that route as well. I hate to say it but it is for a ricer, I need something to keep me from getting ran over on the exit ramps.

The Suburban costs to much to drive right now so I am driving a Suzuki X90.

Not a turbo expert, but aren't forged pistons a real good idea with them? Hate to see you zap a good motor.

I believe they have forged pistons stock, not sure never looked in one but I know that many people are running a 220hp turbo/intercooler on them with no problems. I think most of them like me don't push them hard.
