You might even end up losing money doing a tranny swap. Buy one with the tranny you want. Trust me there is a hell of a lot of things you and your father can work on. It just makes more sense to buy one that has what you want in it fix it up/perfomancize it. Instead of shelling out bills for a manny tranny you could be doing cams/flywheel/turbo upgrade/etc. Trust.

I've just bought a NA manual and have no with laws and no trouble insuring it, im on the way to 150kW at the wheels witch will make it as quick as a tt, No large expenses all bolt on. So if your looking for horsepower you can still get it from the NA just not as easilly as the tt. You'll still be pleased with a NA.

It would be a huge pain. You'd need a pair of nonturbo exhaust manifolds and downpipes, to begin with. Installl those, remove the intercooler piping, reroute the intake piping directly from the MAF to the throttle bodies. You'll also need to cap the oil lines to the turbos that aren't there anymore, as well as the coolant lines. There may be other things I'm not aware of. It would be easier to buy an NA car now and trade it for a TT later.

hmm. well is there anotehr way to disable TT? friend sugested putting disabling rotors in the turbos, so they dont do anything...

i had a look at teh power to weight ratio crappy law we got here... 125:1 and under is legal.. 300zx w/ TT is at 137.5:1 :( is tehre at least a way of reducing the ratio to make it legal?

Further more, what sort of cost am i looking at for the extra parts if i did infact decided to remove TT altogether?
