from what jeff said.. you just can drop any old turbo unit/motor into your exsiting na. in the 280zx they had majorly diffrent wiring harness. Iwas looking into doing a while back when i heard that i could push out more the 300 hp without a new cam or heads. what you would need to change when converting to turbo is the harnesses. this is a big step. you just can pull one out of a turbo model and tape it together in the na. you will need a whole new harness. with just sticking a turbo unit on a na yes you would probably need new engine parts because its just going to **** everything up. well.. despite all the bad **** about makeing a na a turbo.. i think its a great idea and myself would rather make mine a turbo instead of dropping a 350 in it. if one can push more then 300hp with a few mods (injectors) then its a great idea keeping it with the inline 6 instead of an american heavy (50lbs more weight) v8. email me if you get it done...

don't forget the airflow meter, boost sensor, boost gauge on the dash in place of the voltmeter. There are also several sensors on the turbo car the N/A doesn't have (emissions). I would get a service manual for a '81-'83. They have specific differences in the two cars.
You do have a bright side, however....the glove boxes are the same.
