is there a four cyclinder turbo engine that I can put in my 72 Opel
You might try using a turbo from an early 88, 89 Saab. I have a turbo (extra part) for my 89 Saab SPG. It is a 4 cyl like the Gts, but the problem arises when you try to run the exhaust pipe from it. I always wondered about the same thing you are asking about. Some of the long time members may have the answer to this question. The 1 person who would know is Rallye Bob. I have known him from C&R small cars (70s era). If anyone knows the answer to your question, he would be the one to ask, and listen to.

Listen to, read, what the others have posted ahead of me, they have way more knowledge than me. As what what was posted before me, be ready to spend a lot of money, on a lot of parts, that some are rare, to do what you want to do. You might be better off to go to Gil's site and buy a complete moter and transmission, drive shaft. That is basically drop, in drive off. Do not expect it to be cheap though, you get what you pay for, and Gil will stand behind his parts. This is just My opinion. Others have theirs, Sincerely, JarrellIf you have skills, workshop and lot of money: https://www.opelgt.com/forums/engine-swap-forum/15689-opel-gt-build-turbo-mazda-rotary.html
How is it possible then that there are several OHC/DOHC engine swaps done with a CIH Getrag and an adapter plate here in Finland ? Perhaps a Getrag 240 is not the strongest choice for a very healthy turbo engine, but there are many cars with one behind a C30NE, C30SE or even a C40SE. An OHC/DOCH to T5 bellhousing and a T5 would seem like the most logical choice in the US considering availability and price.Starter for a C2.0LET is on the other side. The Getrag240 from the 1.8 Manta will fit but won't handle the torque.
For sure:yup:I think maybe age and self preservation might have kicked in, but to quote a Queen song "who wants to live forever?"
