Lately I've been thinking about getting a z31 turbo. Seems hard to find the turbos. All of them in my area are NAs so the search is on and I'm only going for a turbo, 5spd preferabley black. Iv'e been searchin places to see what kind of stuff to get for them and all that. So far heres what I think I'll be starting out doing.

K&N cone intake
custom 3" exhaust /high flow cats
boostvalve (boostvalve.com)boost gauge too of course

I'll also need to plug the POV in order run higher boost but was wondering.... If the POV is a safety thing, wouldnt' it be bad to high boost like 10PSI? I know a lot of people run 10 but just wondering if its that bad for the motor. What are some other good ways to get more power from the turbo without busting my balls? Thanks.

There is only one cat in the turboZ31, Instead of plugging the POV you can buy an adjustible POV by Greddy or the like if you are worried about boosting too high. Basically, the POV is there just incase the wastegate fails, so there is still something there to make sure your car doesn't blow up. Plugging it and running higher boost should have no ill effects.

you just missed it. There were 2 Black Clean 300ZX Turbos on ebay like 3 weeks ago. One was unbeleivably clean, but had 220,000 miles on it. Guy was asking way to much. He had modded it up and everything tho. Hmm... I think there is one on ebay right now but its not in the best of condition... ill get a link.
