    Default 300zx Turbo engine in my ZED???

    I can have an engine for 500$US (800$CND).

    Is it hard to do the swap???

    I guesse all have to be rewired.

    Clutch needs to ba changed also.

    Can I keep the 4 speed tranny?


    Here is what the ad says:

    Complete mechanic from a 300z turbo 84, 100 000km (roughly 60 000miles, all the wires, ECU, Fuel injectors, etc. all changed by the dealer.

    Wat da ya think???

    Well yes, you will need to rewire almost everything. The tranny you have must go and use a 300ZX tranny (although I have heard people have found ways to use existing transmissions). From what I have heard, there will be a slight performance increase but only slight. Obviously more if you go turbo. You also need to rework your exhaust. Is this going into a 240Z? You need to find where to mount all that extra wiring and the ECU. When done properly it does look very nice, but from what I have heard and talking to folks who ave done it; They say its actually easier to slap a V8 in your Z. Opinion granted since I have done neither and probably will not. I like the simplicity of my L6.
