To All that have disparaged this guy's asking price.

Even though the Turbo engine ad does not clarify some important rebuild facts about the engine I would have to say that his asking price is quite reasonable contrary to other responses. If the engine tests out hot as is claimed then $2500. is more than reasonable.

I have sold several rebuildable Rebello Racing engine cores for more than $2000. myself and they are bargains. New Rebellos engines start at $6000 and go up from there. My own Turbo charged 73 240Z with similar engine does a 13.3 sec. 102 mph quarter mile. There few Z engines that you can build for $2500. that will do that.

At my own specialty Z website there are several engines posted in the classifieds that are $5000. + You might want to check them out at http://www.jps.net/zparts/ads/clsadparts.html

To see an even wilder solution to engine upgrades in a Z car go to the Lexus V-8 photo at my site. Very awsome to see.

If anyone has any specific quesions aout the motor, feel free to ask. I can tell you the motor was taken from an immaculate zx that hd been rear ended, and I ended up buying the while car for $550.00 that may sound high to some, but got a very low mileage (73K when i bought it) motor, tranny, as well as a number of rare parts for the interior (the suede/leather door panels and seat, which I sold alone for 450.00.) The motor was torn down, and rebuilt using all new hardware internally, the crank balanced, and the head was machined slightly, to give around 7.8:1 compression. What else can I tell you?? As for those who question my asking price, I could guarantee you that if you took off my turbo, and I gave you my injectors, inercooler,intercooler pipes, et. al. without the block and head, and you just put the parts onto your motor, the best you could hope for is a 13.0-13.3 1/4 mile, and doubtful reliability. mycar is driven daily about 45 miles, and was designed and built around being able to be street friendly (boost omes in at 1800 RPM, yet make good top end (I have had trap speeds as hgh as 115 in the 1/4). i don't mean to get defensive, but if you go to alleged experts, such as Perforance Fctory, they will charge you $2500 for injectors, a turbo and a Spearco intercooler, and youknow what you end up with, a zxt that won't even run with a Z28!! i know, because one of my mechanics customer s brought his '82 turbo over after performance factory did the work, and the I/C pipes had welds showing 9not even ground down), the turbo was just a machined out stock unit, the injectors were only 330cc, and the car was slow - I smoked it with my '88 All Trac Celica with 165k miles, and only an intake, exhaust, and EVCIV. If anyone wants to see/drive the car, ask Chris Holmes of the New York Z Car Club, or e-mail me, i'd be happy to meet with you. thank.

I was wondering if you know how difficult it would be to put your engine into a '77 280z. I have the stock motor and I have heard various opinios about putting a turbo into my car. It seems that the elctronics and ecu for the turbo are really different and pose a major problem. Also maybe you know someone you is capable of doing this type of work. I might be interested in the motor. My other concern is that it already has 80K miles on it I know these engines are pretty tough but I'm sure this type of car wasnt totally babied ( I know I would probably drive it hard)and it would be a bitch to have to redo this one.YOu can e-mail me directly at [email protected]. I live in central NJ where in NY are you? thanks charlie

Re: Built Turbo Motor ...Hey Adam don't mean to...

>Don't mean to bust your bubble kid, it sounds like you have a lot of nice stuff , but I haven't run 13.30's since the stock turbo was on my car. I have a t-4 now and the car runs 12.50'[email protected] The car has never been rebuilt and has 120k on the motor. I drive it everyday to class and then to work which is roughly 50-60miles everyday. So yes the stock engine is highly reliable at the estimated 330-350hp my car has to be making to run those times. Oh the fuel system is stock with the exception of a cartech regulator,stock ECU as well. If you want to see a picture of my car it was in the September issue of Turbo magazine on page 51 I believe. I have less than $1,500 in my engine last time I checked. Good luck finding a buyer.

To: Boost '77 - Don't want to be ude, but I hink you need remedial reading classes. My car ran 12.3 @ 112. Now, that is without even a full-bore T-4 like you have, plus my car weighs in at 3,200 ponds WITHOUT me!!! (THE CAR has a full stereo in it, which is not removable, but who cares, it sounds awesome). The fact that you're running the stock ECU is cool - I ran mine down to a 12.82 at 106, and then switched to the TECII, mainly because we maxed out the airflow meter, and I had always wanted one of the TEC's.

Re: Built Turbo Motor ...Hey Adam don't mean to...

I know ole boost, he has a hybrid T04. The only thing full blown he has is a hardon. Adam, what type of boost do you run and what type of turbo?

Re: Built Turbo Motor ...Hey Adam don't mean to...

> I Never said I was faster than you. I just responded to the statement about only being able to run 13.30's without your magnificent head. I knew that wasn't the case with my car so that is why I responded. I read just fine thank you, but you might want to learn to proof read what you type...Don't mean to be ude.. whats ude? I don't recall seeing you post how fast your car was. Thanks for telling me. Were your times on slicks? I always run on street tires and I'm wondering how much I can shave off my times with a nice sticky set of rubber. TURBO 240Z I know your real name!!! Don't make me tell. I'll do it man...I'm crazy. Your gages will be put in the mail Thursday. Don't let your meat loaf.
