I have a 240Z that I turbocharged. This is what I recommend. Get the exhaust manifold and turbo from a 280ZX Turbo. The exhaust manifold will bolt right onto your engine w/o modification. You will need to fabricate intercooler plumbing and possible and exhaust system, however, for the exhaust, you can use the stock 280ZXT downpipe and the section up to the cat. Then use one of the exhausts that Motorsport Auto sells to finish it up. As far as fueling, get an FMU from Paxton or Vortech. This device raises the fuel pressure under boost. You can taylor the air/fuel ratio with different fmu rates. This will also allow you to use you stock fuel injection. Make sure that you injectors are perfect!!!! Then you will need an MSD 6-BTM. This is available from Summit racing or Jegs. This is a unit that retards the ign timing under boost. It, too is adjustable. I highly recomend use of an intercooler if you run more than 6psi boost. Good Luck!!!!!!!
