I'm from south texas and 300zx turbos are always at our local u-pull-it. But they are kind of tough to get out. sorry, way too busy right now to be pulling off turbos.

later 300zx turbos came with twin T28's (you can't use these).

the first generation 300zx turbo were 3 liter single turbo setups. this is the one you should use. Of course, you will require a turbo from 2 different cars.

a 280zxt turbo will also work. 168 cid and one single turbo. It is also a T3. But these turbos use the 180 degree thrust bearing (non-water cooled center section) and should only be used to 10 to 12 psi of boost.

Whats involved in converting an LT1 intake to be used on a gen I sbc with the standard bolt angles. Also what is the difference between the lt1 and the lt4? Thanks

think of a turbo as a power multiplier. the more you start off with, the more you will end up with.

tpi start up at 245, lt1 start at 300. then 7.5 psi of boost will add 50% more power (hp and torque).

if you have a tpi then use it.

if you don't have an engine yet then go for a late model 5.3.

twin turbos to Tpi

How is your project going?
I have used 2 Mitsubishi 13t turbos from Volvo 940 at my 305 -87. It works ok.
