Turboing the Z6 is a piece of piss to do, you can buy off the shelf kits but they not excellent but will do the job easy enough and will see you 200BHP, have a look at my Z6 turbo journal for a quick guide.
My journal is a high spec'd engine but it's give you an idea of what can be achieved from the Z6 engine. You dont need to go as far as ive done but this is my personal choice so i can run bigger BHP and run it save
The main part is getting the car mapped by a reconised tuner so the engine will run properly and blown itself to pieces.

Try Ricky at Race Tech, off the shelf D Series kit that you just need to add injectors to and a remap which Ricky can do, he knows what he's doing.

If its a genuine Japanese kit being sold what's the problem with eBay? . Is there an actual reason or is it just snobbery/jealousy, because it doesn't cost £2800 +?.

Hi ive done a swap to a d16y8 turbo. Iv been told to get a hondata s300 ecu and a wideband lambda sensor. Is there a cheaper alternative for the hondata unit that is still reliable?
