Hi, I own an 81 turbo ZX auto! I just had it repainted, and now I am looking for more speed! I installed a comp cam special grind last year plus I freed up the exhaust! I currently run high 13's! I don't have a lot of money but I work plus go to school, and I have to have my dad do the wrenching, but I am considering an intercooler! Any thoughts?

Consider an intercooler from a Supra or Conquest. Both are large enough to actually help, both can be found fairly cheaply and both are easily plumbed into the ZXT intake system.

...oh yes!..intercool it...get a boost controller (or make 1)....some BIG injectors...and adjust your pop-off (or get an adjustable one or just plug it if you feel lucky)..and you should be @ 300+ hp...(or @ least you get about 10hp for every lb of boost it'll hold)...different people say different things and theres prbly more than one way to do it...thats the way i'm gonna try to do mine.....my boost contoller (cheapo $100 one @ motorsport) 'sposed to be on the ups truck now.....
good luck

Toyota maybe - Starion marginal.

If you're going the building route one stage at a time don't waste time w/either - get an NPR or Spearco.

Stock injectors good for ~260 HP, add a rising rate FPR and you may get another 20-30.

After this you need to switch to aftermarket fuel injection and bigger injectors.

SDS seems best bang for buck.
