    Here is my 300ZX twin turbo which is currently SORN'd for the winter.

    Need to go out and take it a blast round the scheme actually, sitting in a damp garage is not healthy!

    Nightmare to work on lol mega cramped.

    With enough time and cash you could easily fit it in a 350.

    You can see the turbos from underneath, that's about it though lol, I had a slightly loose turbo connection, took me about 4 hours to tighten it!

    I know some guys have changed one of the turbos with the engine in place, but it took just as long as taking the engine out.

    This Zed is still on it's original turbos, no bad for 21 years and 75k miles, and been running high boost last 25k, had them checked out with a scope last summer, almost perfect nick, also when I got the downpipes changed there was virtually no play in them.

    So hopefully last a while yet.

    Shame cars aren't built like that anymore.

    I would do, except there's no tax on it!

    I can safely drive it round my scheme as it is private roads here so no tax needed.

    The weather is also still not good, don't want any nasty grit in my arches!

    Just a wee update on the Zed.

    Going in next week for an uprated fuel AEM 320lph fuel pump and 555 injectors.
    Then get a Nistune chip soldered into the ECU which then allows it to be fully mapped.

    Not sure how much power she will give, but interested to find out.
