yes, you can put a turbo head on your motor. it is easier and more well documented to just swap out the entire motor, because of sensors, and a stronger block, but it is certainly possible and has been done before successfully. the turbo head is the P90 or P90A, BTW.

Re: Are you going to turn the engine into a turbo?

I want to turn it into a turbo motor, I found a guy who will sell me a 81 zxt motor with fuel injection/ manifolds/ turbo/ basically everything on the engine for $350 bucks do you guys think i should go for it? and then find a better turbo? what kind of turbo would work the best? so i want to turn my car into a turbo car. Thanks again

Re: Are you going to turn the engine into a turbo?

The n/a block and turbo block are virtually the same. Make sure you have dished pistons in your L28 and you can turbo your brains out. My turboed 78 block P90A combo has been running for several thousand HARD miles without a problem. Use the Nissan head gasket for the year of the block,the stock turbo will work. I've run 15 intercooled psi with a hybrid turbo. Scottie-GNZ posted a while back about a friend of his who ran low 12's with a turboed junkyard n/a block for years. Keep detonation away and it will live.
