    I dunno what kind of power the trans can handle but a ZC-t would probably suit you for a little while.


    Hell, I would buy the ZC, turbo the D that's in that bitch until it couldn't take it anymore, then do the swap.

    Re: Advice

    hey guys thanks for your advice. yeah i'm not looking for something thats super fast or anything. just something i can have some fun with. the d15 is just such a dog i can't take it anymore.

    n i would consider a turbo cept it would be a waste if i couldn't use it on the ZC once im done. its a DOHC instead of a SOHC. plus i'm not looking to dump a bunch of money into the 15 unless you know of a cheap way to do it.

    thanks a bunch though guys :D n please if anyone has any more information it would be most appreciated.

    You can use the D series exhaust stuff on all the ZC's. You may need to port out the manifold like 3mm.

    Re:Turbo

    so i can get any d series turbo stuff and it will fit to a SOHC and a DOHC ZC? with some small modification of course :p.

    the specs on the DOHC are 137bhp what do you think a turbo will get me. also do you think i'll have trouble with the tranny.




    ***does anyone know if the 4wd has a special tranny??? everything i find doesn't have the 4wd specs***

    Comes with:
    -Manifold
    -Mainfold heat shield
    -Te04 mitsubishi turbo
    -Electronic Boost Gauge
    -Greddy Turbo Timer
    -Unknown Blow off vavle
    -All the piping
    -Tapped oil pan
    -Steel braided oil lines
    -Oil Return line
    -4 bolt patter down pipe, which connect to turbo (custom)
    -Pipe connectors

    T's go in the vacuum lines. it's shaped like T hence the name.

    Thats a GREAT price if you can buy it. Intercoolers are pretty cheap now, maybe under 200 for a decent one on Ebay. I'd look around for a Johnny Racing one though, as they are the best.

    BTW, where is that setup for sale?

    Hey challenger, a turbo is a nice choice. you will pull just under 2 at the wheels. well... between 180 give or take. My last zc turbo ran 192 when i was finished. And thats what i did was just buy a turbo for my sohc and blew it up. Swapped motors and went. i actually have a zx for sale with only 5,000 miles on it. i was even rebuilt with turbo pistons and a ported head. if your interested.
