Whats up, just bought a zx3 2001 from a buddy. It was in pretty rough shape the heads were leaking into the exhaust for some time. This resulted in the whole exauhst system to corrode from the inside. even though i was just going to make this a daily driver i bought a magnaflow catback and some obx headers lol. anyways now that i have the head off and off to the machine shop i want to know if a svt intake manifold will fit with no prob. also if anyone has any ideas on how to upgrade the fuel delivery that would be great. thx

It sure will, but requires quite a bit of work. Let me find the How-To on it for you...

EDIT: Um....okay I have no idea what happened here. I found the thread, but the entire write-up is missing like it was removed and post 2 became post 1. But hopefully if you dig through the pages you can get some info. Crap.

If you are doing a small turbo, there is nothing wrong with the OEM intake. It is good for 300+ hp IIRC. You should worry about engine internals after 240hp and a good clutch after 180hp.

We have an exhaust manifold section?
huh


The 13g (I assume off a 3000GT or Stealth) won't bolt to any manifold you'll find. You're going to have to use and adapter or weld one yourself.
most all the manifolds you'll find will use a Garrett T3 based flange (rectangle hole) and not a Mitsubishi flange (round hole).
The easiest thing to do is to buy a Garrett based turbo and manifold. Parts are also easier to come by.
