    Talking Twinturbo conversion completed!

    Well guys, I've been building a twinturbo engine for my 300ZX since April and I completed it a few months back. I had been gathering all of the other items for the conversion over the past few months. Well, I got all of the parts together and swapped the engine last weekend and been putting the break-in miles on her since tuesday. I'm up to about 350 miles so far, so there is still a ways to go before I can turn the boost up. I am shooting for 400RWHP and definately in the 12s 1/4 mile bracket.
    Here's some pics!

    1990 Mazda B2200 Pickup; >80RWHP ;-)

    LOOKS FRICKIN FANTASTIC. good job man!!! now all you gotta do is keep the engine bay looking that clean

    i love the clean (no sticker) look of your car. nothing more that i hate than seeing some slow-a$$ car (cough*honda*cough*civic) with 8000 performace parts stickers on it, and it runs low 18's. but your toy... magnificent!!!

    geez i wish i had that car....

    Yeah, pretty nice looking car.
    But you strap it to my truck, and I could pull you backwards while your tires are smoking. (probably and exageration, but hey, I can dream :-)
    Right now I drive a 1989 F-250 XLT, with a 351 Cleveland, Manual 5-speed. the thing will get about 12-14 mpg, and it burns a liter of oil every 2 weeks, because of a cracked manifold.
    Sadly, its not built for racing, having really low gearing.
    I have to be in 3rd gear to go 35 through town.

    cracked manifold causing an oil leak???? Must be that new fangled oil cooled/lubricated exhaust system. Better fix it soon, you might sieze a muffler bearing.
