you can as it's been done before but it's pointless and a lot of work. You could easily swap in a used l28et motor and upgrade to a larger simple turbo, or an RB series motor, or even get turbo parts to turbo your stock motor. Single turbo really has no disadvantages in our car and would save you a MASSIVE amount of work and stress

the only engine i would twin turbo would be a V8, because anything smaller isnt going to have good exhaust pressure to turn over the turbo's unless there really small. you really should put one turbo on and it would be SO much more efficient then both.

You can turbo a stock 280Z motor? What parts are needed?

You'll have to fab up some piping, and build up the internals but you'd be able to do it if you really wanted to.

Stop Snitching.

Yes... little girls do it.
Yes... insecure grown men do it.
Yes... it should be stopped.
