alexx933 Posted December 15, 2015 Share Posted December 15, 2015 (edited) So the white 77 that is my profile picture was turbo swapped. Stock computer and all. I sold her to a guy on base after I purchased my 73. Unfortunately, I really miss the turbo. It's addicting. My 240 started carb'd and soon gave me headaches. Eventually I said screw it and installed Megasquirt. Best investment towards reliability. I have no numerical horsepower goals. The idea behind the turbo install is for the extra power. I don't autocross or road race. Just want a quick street car. Plus the sound is always a bonus. So my current set up: L24 block E88 head. Injector notches and holes drilled/tapped. Stage 2 Schneider cam from MSA (previous owner installed) http://schneidercams.com/274FL6.aspx EFI intake, 240sx TB with spacer Pallnet style rail with ZXT injectors. -6an lines and fittings from the surge tank and back. Mitsubishi Starion Fuel pump Wideband without a gauge. Gauge could be installed for turbo applications EDIS ignition with crank sensor. no distributor. Ranger coilpack. MSA 2.5 inch exhaust from previous owner 4 speed trans. I have a 5spd that needs the case reinstalled before it can be swapped in. 3.90 Subie LSD with Wolfcreek axles Twin electric fans I would like to keep the L24 but if a whole L28et showed up for cheap, oh well. I don't like the stock turbo cam though as it feels to run out of steam about 5000. I have an intercooler, piping, and BOV from previous plans for the 77. I have a lead for an exhaust mani with external WG. He has a cheap ebay turbo too. Not sure I'd go that route, but I'm scrounging for pennies in the military. MSnS can control a EBC for me as I like the automated route. So what would you Z gods recommend as far as a turbo goes? I would like to keep the a/r around .63 as most people have good results. But I am open to suggestions. Sounds like the GT35R could be a good bet. http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/108922-exhaust-porting-worth-it/ Edited December 15, 2015 by alexx933 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
