      HAHAHAHA... for those who didn't see it: http://www.88hybrid.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1385

      I saw that right after he posted it and knew it wasn't right. There seems to be a lot of things like that on the site though. What can you expect when half of them are from zcar.com?

        Oh. My. God.

        He obviously did NOT read my site or even Chris' faq for that matter! Talk about not doing your homework.

          That guy is well intended and an enthusiast but he hasn't done his homework enough to know what he really needs to do the conversion. Ignorant...yes, but a well intentioned heart with little knowledge of the Z31. :?
          Just stand back and throw money.
          Performance costs money.
          Reliable performance costs more.

                    Supposedly the N/A manifold does not have the same stud placement as the Turbo manifold. (on Jasons sight)

                      true. Yes you have to swap the studs around on the back port i believe to fit the turbo manifold. Also take off the gasket and break it apart and flip it upside down to line up with the new stud placement. Oh and i hope your pulling the motor because you will probably break off manifold studs in the head and have to drill and easy-out them, plus it will make it very easy to swap the drivers side manifold, install the turbo, oil pan, feed and drain line and crossmember. I highly recommend pulling it, i think it saves time....yet i can pull entire motor and tranny with my bud in 1 hour 15 minutes from start to finish, however i have nearly nothing in my engine bay. You should be able to do it with a friend in like 4 hours, no big deal.

                        Believe it or not I have done some prettty challenging things. Working on the front of a Q45 engine (timing, oil chain, guides, etc.) was supposedly a nightmare $1000+ plus job, but i some how got it done. Blabla i guess it matters not. But i really don't want to pull the engine. The turbo car was great, everything was soooo saturated with sludge that the nuts and bolts pretty much removed them selves. But i guess i can pull some strings and bust out in auto class.
