Hi all, I am wondering if there is an aftermarket turbo header to replace the old cast iron one on my 1983 280zx turbo motor.

Thanks,
Cole

Unfortunatly no there isn't. Turbo headers don't exist for any Z other than the 90+ 300zx. To be more specific there are no turbo headers for the older Z avaliable here in the U.S. but I'm sure Japan companies at one point made them. The three options I see here are to find a set in Japan through company that will ship to you, have a set custom made, or stick with the stock manifold and just have it ported by a machine shop.

A few of us Turbo'd Z'rs are running one of these....You could have one like this or have your own made up. Sorry it's been awhile, but I believe ours has 30% more air flow over the stock exhaust manifolds.

Joel, Tim, Jeffp... correct me if I am wrong ;)

180000 yen straight out of Japan, made to order by Trust (plus shipping etc) took about a month from the time i ordered it, and i have no way of saying if it will work on a left hand drive car, with the turbo i chose it ends up sitting lower then the engine mount and needs a new one to be fabed. Youll also need a type R wastegate 95000 yen and its made to mount a TD-07 turbo 260000 yen, i went with a garret turbo which needed a adapter that lowered the turbo 25mm.

Wow Nice!

D83zxt - I was also on that SFP group buy as well. I spoke to them many times during the build process and they said that the air flow is improved by about 30-40%. I have since had mine Jet Coated and will hopefully going on the car soon!

Yasin, I knew there was more of us :)

Joel was the first to received his even tho it had to be sent back, after finding out about the lining up fitting issues, I sent SFP a used head so they could correct this matter :) Everyone said theirs was a GREAT improvement, and that it totally woke up the whole motor and the preformance gain is awesome :)



PS... You and I use the same BOV too LOL
but at a different location ;)

$850.00 w/external wastegate mounting.





Vinh... it's been a pleasure watching what you've done over the years with your Z, keep up the good work :)
