I know two 240Zs with the Tech 2 setup. It works really well, but for full throddle performance, triple carbs get you the same thing for much less $$$. The Electromotive system gives you tunability, better fuel economy, and something to brag about, all for about $3000 minimum. I would not consider it unless you are turbo charged or have a show car and you want the look. But either way, good luck

This is the type of misinformation that Z owners dont need. A TEC-II does not cost $3000, but more like $1800 and there are alternatives that are even less expensive. And, if Z owners are looking for just fuel management, an excellent system can be had for about $850 that is complete, replaces the factory ECU and injector harness, eliminates the AFM and provides all the benefits you stated. MOF, have 240/260 owners looking to go triple carbs considered the following alternative? Get an intake with injectors and fuel rail and the fuel pump from a 75+Z and use an aftermarket fuel management system. Better yet, get the entire engine and gain the torque from the extra cc. Triple carbs are not cheap, I know, I just sold a complete set. Carbs, manifold, special linkage, air filters, fuel lines and fittings, fuel pump and highly recommended FPR all add up, not to mention the special synch tool needed if you want to drive the car. A 280ZXT can make over 260hp with the stock injectors and FPR, more if you get up to 50psi, making the EFI setup enough to motivate any N/A.
Everyone has their favorites but alternatives should not be misrepresented.

Hi Steve, the tec-2 system is an excellant system if you are going to turbo your car. I have a 73 240 thats turbocharge stock motor with a small t3 and the car runs mid 12's without slicks.Ask anyone with a good running turbo 240 (big difference . Tec-2 run about 1250.00 with all the sensors. If you are interested in more info give me a call at 818 654-0670 ask for paul ,im also a turbonetics distributor and can get you a pretty good price on a turbo.
I run the tech II and it cost about $1800 for everything. I purchased it from Top-End Performance because they are a value added dealer. That means they will machine the trigger wheel to your crank and they also machine a special mount for the magnetic pickup. This will save you a tremendous amount of headache in installation. The advantages of the system are noticed whether your car is n/a or turbo. Full control of the fuel and ignition. You can tune performance or you can tune awesome gas mileage.
I would like a price for the complete TEC-II system with all the appropriate sensors, basically the 6cylinder kit they sell. I would like the Super*B II software included in that price. Also, I need a price for a T04E turbo with ceramic bearings.
I can not just place an order but in a couple months WILL be purchasing this stuff. I am currently getting the rest of the car ready, suspension, interior, etc.
I think you would be hard pressed to even see 12's running a small t3. ****, I ran a t3 unit with a 50mm compressor wheel on street tires and could only manage a 13.4 and that was on a modified motor with the works. That was at 14psi of boost. The most you can get from a t3 is in the mid to high 300 hp range. You must have a highly modified t3 with atleast tc-3 turbine wheel and maybe the super-60 compressor wheel.
