Motor oils are largely a personal perference. Ask 20 people and you will get 20 answers and they will all be correct. I personally would prefer a synthetic fortified oil (Castrol) on your vehicle because of the greater film strenght.I hope this helps you. Mark

the twin turbo motor is much cheper to mod than the n/a because the engine was built to take force induction from factory. so all part just bolt on and the n/a is expecive to get at lest400hp

depends on how much you are willing to spend, i would definilty consider swapping the older motor for a newer 89-92 300zx motor that already has twin turbos and are easy to work on. it you want to stay with the stock motor, you will have to first off get a custom turbo manifold, piping and intercooler.

its right in front of the motor one of the silver pipes... take out the rad and then take the fan off for good acsess... then pull the thermostat off.

Yes, but you will need a starter shim (unless you're also installing an NA clutch and flywheel on a TT motor) and you most likely will have to clearance the bell housing to fit the TT flywheel. Note this is for 1990-2000, not the older generation.

Yes, it is only the pistons that are different to provide a different compression ratio (higher in the NA). Be careful when bolting turbos to an NA motor.

location of engine # on 90 Nissan 300zxthe engine number is located under the hood on the passenger side on a label if you are trying to see if you vehicle is turbo or not the engine family letter will be a T for turbo and I forget the exact letter but maybe a D if not (of course there are numbers also in this engine family number but the letter determines turbo or non as long as the hood is original to car and motor) per Nissan dealership I called and asked!!!! Hope this helps

First look at the manufacturing date on the rear of the driver's door; example 7/87 you need that to follow the motor swap. Turbo Before 4/87 1984-1986 Turbo After 5/87 1987-1989 Turbo NoN-Turbo Before 3/87 1984-1987 Non Turbo NoN-Turbo After 4/87 1987-1989 Non Turbo

no, not at all. the newer VQ engines are rumored to fit, but you have a lot of work to do with the ECU and engine management when you do that. Best/easiest bet is to turbo that ka24de.

yes it will still mount the same. the motor mount are the same and same place throughout the 84-89 300zx turbo and non-turbo. but you will either have to take the alternator bracket of the 86 motor and put it on the left side of the 87 motor and take the right side alternator and bracket off or run the alternator wiring to the passenger side of the car.

What motor is in it? ZD30? If so they have a timing chain, not a belt.

Its located on the left side of the motor, be careful when you disconnect the fuel lines, there is a lot of presser, very basic
