    Z3 lsx turbo swap

    New to the site and figured I'd post a little about my build . I'm almost finished my Z3 with a 6.0 LQ4. Engine has a set of 823's LS3 heads and intake. Brian Tooley stage 3 turbo cam and springs with harden push rods! All Arp bolts of course. Transmission is a tr6060 6 speed and we made custom mounts our selfs for the engine and transmission. 80mm billet wheel turbo with T6 flange. Hydro dipped valve covers timing cover and intake. Car is going to still keep A/C. I'd post picks but I'm not seeing a way to do so.

    You have to host them on a site like Flickr and then you can use the IMG tags.

    Looks mint. Did you repaint engine bay? Or did it just clean up nice.

    It just cleaned up that nice. The only thing left is the hot and cold side.

    Do you have pics of the turbo mounted? Is it centre mounted? Do you have enough room in there for it?

    This makes me want to start mine. I'm too lazy to drop my block off at the machine shop. Haha.

    It's been a fun swap and if you make your own mounts you don't have to change your steering link.

    Is that a 6cly wide body car?

    Apex has some nice wheels, that's what lots of guys run. How wide do you want to go?

    It's a roadster. I didn't know they made them any different but it's defiantly wide.

    The 4cly cars were narrower.

    I put 18x10's in the back of mine with 295 rubber.
