You're putting all that money into the whirly bits and heads but keeping the stock turbos?

For the 15-16 psi that the stock turbos will run a simple AFC or ECU reflash (like Nistune or something similar) will be all you need.

They make a Nistune board for the Z31.

ditch the stock t3 dude... that thing is putting a MAJOR restriction on your power production.

also, forged bottom end was prettymuch a waste of money unless you're planning on running over 500whp

stock fuel is for suckers, especially on the z31... those 260cc peashooters aren't good for any kind of power production.

now to answer your question... broke is correct, there is a nistune board that you can use.. which is probably the best option for most people these days without converting to a full out standalone setup. check out z31performance.com for details on it, i can't remember the link to the actual site at the moment. or just google it, that will give you the same result i'm guessing.



moral of the story? ditch the stock turbo.
