will anyturbo fit?

Postby mulletmrt » Sun Oct 13, 2002 3:31 pm

Okay Guys I have a few questions. I just bought a 89 s13 a few months ago. I got enough money to rebuild the motor and tranny. I was think now would be a good time to turbo it. I was wondering if there would have to be a certain turbo that i would have to use. I picked up a rebuilt 89 300zx turbo for very cheap. I was wondering would I be able to use it? Also I was wondering if I would be able to custom weld a turbo manifold from and old exhaust manifold? Would this be able to sustian 7psi of boost or less? Thanks

1. YES, the z31 turbo will work.

2. I dont know how good your welding skills are.

3. Should be.. I have heard a 12 maxPSI on them cars.

You can use any turbo on any car just so long as you have the right size flange on the turbo manifold. Some are better than others, but that only goes with power curve preferences.

No, from the experience I have had with Auto tranny's, you can put a lot more power to them before they break. But theres really only ONE way to find out how much you can stick in there before it breaks.

Wow Rick, thats a pretty weak list of mods there:D When did you decide on all that? I guess I have been out of the loop with most things these days anyways. You said you lived in salem right? If so I drive through there about 2-3 times a week. Maybe we can meet up next weekend, E-mail me.
