You would have a clearance issue as stated before. Either way your going to have to do electrical and cutting work.

You'll have to make more room whether you turbocharge the motor now or swap the motor with a twin-turbo one. You'll also either buy a reprogrammable ECU for the twin-turbo motor to work with the transmission and harness you have now or a stand-alone fuel management system so you can turbo charge the motor you have now. You'll need to adjust your shift points, air-to-fuel ratio, induction psi, etc. The cost of a motor-swap is about $3000. $1500 for a used twin-turbo motor from Ebay and $1500 for the ECU. The motor comes with: complete engine, turbos, all brackets and sensors, exhaust manifold, ECU, Intake manifold, Power Steering pump, ac compressor.

The cost to turbo the motor you have now is about $4500. $3,000 for the turbonetics turbo kit and $1500 for the fuel-management system. Not to mention if you have to change your intake system, O2 system, fuel rail, exhaust system.

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.

How to do a 1992 Nissan 300ZX NA to TT conversion?

Buy a TT engine. Way easier than trying to put a TT kit on your NA car. I looked into it at one point and it was not at all worth it. You can buy a decent TT motor for 1000-1600 bucks. There are lots of variables on this but its the easiest of all your options to just get a new motor.

Change turbos in a 300zx?

what is the question? If you are asking if you can, the yes, if you are asking if it is difficult, yes again, if you are asking how, you have to disconnect the motor from the transmission and lift the motor so you can get to the turbos(on the bottom of both sides of the motor), and replace them from there. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ This question is stupid. Anyone who has a 300ZX TT knows the car enough to know the answer to this. I bet some idiot from is going around asking stupid questions.

1986 Nissan 300zx and want to add a turbo what modifications will need to be done?

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.
