No you can run MS on N/A cars as well. The wiring is a tad different since you can usually only run fuel and not the spark with these older cars. You can go with an EDIS system for coil on plugs to do spark as well though.

1. First find a place that you will be mounting the MS ECU to. I sugest a place that is accesable to connect tuning cable to.

So I am thinking the location of the stock ECU or the stock ignition module (75 280Z) would be good. Kind of leaning toward ECU in driver's side kick panel as there is more room, and when I pull the factory fuel harness out there will be a firewall penetration to use.

If you have done this please share your experience and any pros/cons to the location you used.

That's where I put mine, where the stock ecu is located. Took some time to get the harness through but it worked fine. If I were to do it again I would get some aircraft cannon plugs and wire them through that so I could be a QD system.
