NicktheMillwright Posted February 16 Report Share Posted February 16 Good afternoon gentlemen I have some questions regarding turbo charging my z24 (Yes I did make a post a while back asling the same thing, but here im planning to update you all as I go) After various back and forth ideas regarding what I'm looking for from this truck, I've come to the conclusion I want to keep the z24. From my research I've gathered a fair bit of information, and that's left me with a few questions. (I'm not an engine builder, I'm just a Millwright) Do I need dished/Lower compression pistons or will running forged KA24E pistons, (which would raised the compression) work fine? I assume raising compression when adding a turbo is the way to go. Running ARP studs should help keep the head on. Im not concerned about having to run higher octane. Adding a longer duration cam, from what I understand, will aid in fuel air flow. However stiffer valve springs are required due to said longer duration. How would I go about figuring out which springs I need to order? *If I want to exceed 7psi of boost, would I need to run a EFI style carb (Like a Holley Sniper) to prevent complications with the fuel delivery? Beyond 7psi of boost I assume it would overcome the fuel pump and starve the engine of fuel. If I have to run an efi system, I assume I also will need a crank position sensor. I know the Z24i had one, so finding where that's located shouldn't be too difficult. Would it be worth running an intercooler alongside the turbo? And I assume running an oil cooler would be a wise idea. Thats all I can think of at the moment, I'll update this thread with progress and questions as I go. Nick Quote Link to comment
