84 300zx T-3 TurboCharger... any good for the fSVT?



So much stuff in my garage... this is the turbo I took off for my crazy t4 turbo build on my turbo 84 300zx AE w 45k miles. The specs are:

.60 comp trim
.63 turbine trim
Compressor Diameter 51.4 mm
Turbine Diameter 53 mm

I layed down right over 320whp with this turbo on my Z.. this is more than enough to hit 300whp with my SVT, right? This thing is mint with NO shaftplay and is so clean. I would love to not spend $600 on a turbo just to hit 300whp-325whp with my fSVT with all this turbo stuff laying around... look what ive pulled out of my garage trying to find all the stuff I have to work with (bar&plate intercooler not pictured)-

It still amazes me how many people think they can take some old POS turbo and slap-er-on.

you have an intercooler a box of pipes and a turbo I wouldn't even put on my lawnmower. Don't waste your time or money.

I wansn't trying to be rude but it is the reality. I promise you would be money ahead to buy the right turbo in the first place rather than spending the money to make that one work.

Its not a POS turbo, its in perfect condition with no shaft play t3 off a beautiful 300zx (320+whp on this turbo) I sold a while back. I have the intercooler from my prior Procharger setup off my Fsvt & the intercooler pipes are thick wall aluminum I will be tig welding.

To me it is a good start for digging through my garage and pulling out parts from my past 12 second cars and figuring out a parts list.

I understand where you are comming from but I was asking if this turbo was the right size for my moderate power goals. It is a t3 60 series turbo so spending money on fitment will not be an issue as you state.

If your out shopping for a turbo I would stick with Turbonetics turbos.. they have amazing reviews and have EXCELLENT build quality. You could spend from 600-2000+ depending on what size/stage/bearing combo

Ill be pulling the IWG off & welding the flap shut and running a EWG on the manifold (done it on a couple cars when converting to external). Im looking at a SPA log manifold or the OBX tubular manifold... I see the OBX doesnt have a spot for a wastegate but thats an easy fix with a stainless jbend and a tig welder. Im just getting started.

Ive owned ALOT of cars.. swapped 97lt4 OBDII + 6speed into my auto OBDI 94formula after doing a 383 stroker kit & isky cams/roller rockers, put my XR4Ti into the 13's w/ a super60 stage 1 and custom megasquirt injection, broke 400whp with my 84 300zx Turbo w/ vg33e block, jim wolf tech cams, SDS Stand Alone & t4/70mm....

I bought this fSVT new and have loved every minute of it. Always trying something new from a vortec non HO kit, to a procharger w/ FMIC a 2.5" pulley + 5.7 ODP and now my JRSC BBK + ODP + WMI...

Done with superchargers for now, finally going turbo. Just finished the P&P job on the head, +1mm Ferra Valves, new buckets & lash set, cometic .070 headgasket, ARP studs & working all the little things out.
