Remote mount turbo V6 project
« on: 10:27:28 PM / 14-Apr-05 »
.................PAGE 13 FOR PIX DUMP!!!I'm starting this thread to document adding a rear mounted turbo to a 88 SE VG30/5SPEED..The conversion consists of adapting the 1986 300zx turbo/ECU/INJECTORS/IDLE parts over to the 200sx SE..I started mounting the remote mount turbo today.I have it positioned where the muffler was mounted.The muffler hangers and brackets were reused to support the T3 300zx turbo.The turbo exhaust is angled similar to the stock look. The inlet flange is already hooked up to the exhaust.It looks a little bulky but I think its because the car is still up on the ramps.Once the car is lowered down, it will probably look better.Spray it with some flat black high temperature paint and it will blend in some.There is plenty of room for a AFM and a cone filter as well.Right now these run along side the left rear tire, so maybe a dirt shield of some kind will need to be added....tomorrow I might start fitting the pressure side piping back up front to the throttlebody.

Good luck with it, I\'ll definetly be interested to see how it works out.  I\'m still thinking it\'s gonna be kinda laggy though...

..i'm going to be picking up a Tilton electric differential oil pump....it has been used by others with good results....it's a little pricey but everything else sofar has been cheap good junkyard stuff.....I test fitted the pressure pipe up to the T/B and it fits up the drivers side of the engine with no problem.Plenty clearance past the steering shaft as well.I 'd post pictures but Ihave no luck linking them up.I can e-mail if someone else wants to post them.

You can get an account at photobucket.com for uploading and then posting pics.

Works great for me.

thats gotta be one SWEET oil pump. its gotta move some serious lubrication. Also, are you going to be using any sort of MAP sensor/different ECU?

I hear they have kits like this for F body camaros, trans ams, and firebirds.  Sounds interesting....but I would have to agree.....I would think it would be kinda laggy....but you never though.

I read through the STS website, and all the other goodies, and they claim that its no more lag than that of a stock air intake.

Summit sells the pump for a little under 200....right now I plan to reuse the 300zx ecu/afm[n/a from a 86 car]...a couple people on Z31.COM state there cars run fine on the stock ecu and injectors when they converted to a turbo...we\'ll see.

I worked on fitting the air cleaner and afm on the turbo today and it fits great...I used the bottom housing of a 300zx air cleaner assembly and fit it in between the gas tank and rear differential pumpkin...there is enough room to pivot the housing in any direction,I decided to have it face down to drain any water that might get thrown its way...its a better location than before where it was adjacent to the left rear wheel..tomorrow I\'ll start on the inlet oil line.

You have to understand though, that these kits they sell are for very large displacement V8\'s, with small turbos and low boost.

Hopefully it\'ll work good with the larger VG30 at low boost, but I am definetly excited to see how it turns out!!!

I think thats why its important to keep the exhaust pipe diameter small.  No more than 2 inches at most.  I wonder what effects it could have on a blow off valve?  I imagine since the overall boosted volume is large, its forgiving.

What happened to the other thread?

We lost the other thread in the big crash we had last month.  We lost everything all the way back to 10/04.

I went and I checked out MC\'s project and its awesomeness. My only concern is for that air intake. I think you\'re gonna have to rotate it up or something because as it is now. If you drive in rain its screwed.

Yeah Jaster,I agree[btw... any problems on the return drive??].... but this car will probably be driven in decent weather only...I can tilt the air cleaner angled forward for easy ram effect  or tilt toward the rear to keep rain from blasting in[or face it at 12]...today I was able to connect the oil supply line from the engine and back to the turbo...the oil banjo fitting connects to the block right by the rear of alternator[just remove the old plug bolt]...I used one long length of brake line tubing and snaked it along the undercarrage....its zip tied for the time being.....i have to call Summit to order the pump so i can start the return oil line and figure out extending the AFM harness..not much to go.

....I worked on extending the harness today...went to Home Depot and bought a large spool of 12 guage wire and soldered in 6 wires to reach the AFM in the rear..made a harness with zip ties and covered that with plastic flex tubing...looks really nice..anyone sell me a AFM HARNESS WITH CLIP??[holding up the project]....ordered the pump today as well.

What happened to the one on the car? If you are extending the harness why don\'t you just reuse the one you have?

Clip the connector off and solder the wires in place of it. Then relocate it to the rear of the car.
