First of all let me start by saying that I have read and learned from most of the people on this forum and I respect everyones opinion on what to do...whether I've tried them or not.

Like I said before... Great post K3
I don't really mean to put fire onto the flame but we all are 'Z literate' people here right, could you imagine how hard it would be to work on an engine (especially a TT swap) if there was only one step by step way of doing it without the variation of style and performance. If this was the case then every Z owner would hate the Z and forums wouldn't even exist. All questions would be answered by "hey stupid didn't you read the book?" Nissan made the cars very advanced and unique especially when they figured out how much smarter they were than us Americans-Technology wise.

So for every Z owner out there just know that you may or may not be doing the exact SAME steps for several reasons that have not been clarified so lets list them for the near sighted...

You may or may not...

1.) Understand exactly what someone else has done or will do (you only see pictures not really videos)
2.) have done a full thorough research on the Z itself and not just your Z
3.) Respect or agree with what others have done with their Z
4.) Know that the Zed forum isn't just a forum, its a reference not a talkshow...
5.) Know the real costs of what your doing, heres a rule - you pay for all hp gains from the engine to the wheels!!!
6.) Know that their Z will tear a hole in yours

This is just to try to keep the attitude down around here as I have noticed...

What's the hap with Gringo and retirement?........The way it sounded he was already doing that and just messin with cars........Don't tell me he was a fraud.........

As for the civic...........I bit off a big project and tore it down and am doing a RHD conversion..

Keep up the good work on the Z.......Maybe,.........Just maybe you can play with the Civic when ya get done......

Or maybe I can dust off the Vette........

updated civic pix

New pix at the bottom.

Re: Twin Turbo Swap...

Depending on the condition, "complete-ness" of the car and how much Zs are going for in your area, a $1000-$3000 is probably in order.

Still going to have the cost of the clip, which is like going to be $2500-$3000 at least. Provided it's in good shape and you don't have to buy too many replacement parts you could skate away for $5000 or less doing the work yourself.

Re: Twin Turbo Swap...

all tt 300's are going for 14g or so in my area, the only car in the class that doesnt is the supra.
the car i was interested in is an auto tho. the add said needs engine(i assumed,wrong, that there was no engine at all)but the it has an engine. but from what the guy said the timing got screwed up, right after a complete engine rebuild. the body however was in mint condition, and the only thing missing on the interior was the radio, which he had sitting in the garage
