new engine question! help pleasseee!!

unfortunately my n/a z31's engine **** the bed with 155k miles on it. because the body is in good shape and i love it soo much, i decided to get a new engine for in.

just a question, if i were to get a TURBO engine for it, what other changes would I have to make??????? trying to turn this into a good thing

the best thing to do is find a turbo Z31 parts car with the complete motor in it and rebuild it/make sure its good

Have you ever done a motor swap or pulled a motor? For a first timer, it may be quite a job. The main things you need:
-COMPLETE VG30ET motor
-COMPLETE efi harness & computer
-Wiring diagrams for both the n/a and turbo
-Various fuel, coolant, and oil lines.

There's lots of info about motor swaps here, on hybridz, and also check out redz31.com.

And like Skib said, make sure the motor is good before doing the swap. Unless you want to rebuild it anyway.
