i read on z31.com that u can bolt the throttle body from a 240sx onto the 300zx, adds a lil extra power, but neways, i was wondering if ne1 here has done it, and if so did u need to retune the engine or make ne other mods to make it fit? plz help

You should port the intake collector (what it mounts on) to match the throttle body. Going from big to original size sorta like a shallow cone. That's it. Oh and reset the ECU.

It's not worth it IMO unless you port everything. The TB isn't the biggest restrictor in the Z31 intake system; the intake plenum is.

Indeed, rather pointless to install a larger TB and still have the smaller manifold behind it. Even with porting.

i am also thinking bout putting the manifold from a pathfinder on it
That would be your best bet. It's been gone over a few times just in this section but you will also have hood clearance issues with that manifold.

yeah i read bout that, how much it cost to have the stock mani ported and polished?
It's been done, at great cost of time and brain damage. One of the guys here I think has a one-off done by Engloid, who insisted he would never do it again......
I'm not sure if extrude honing would work on our manifolds or not, I doubt it or it would have been done before now.

Engloid is back again!! harsh financial problems has cause him to come out of hiding. He hasn't made any for sale yet, but when they come out, expect around $400...not cheap, but very effective

$400 is about what I would expect to pay for a performance intake for a Z31. :)

I have the 60mm Tb on my 84 ZXT and it did give a quicker throttle response but I would not say it increased HP. However I do like it better, I have a Pathy intake to go on my car after the stroker bottom end goes in. I bought my intake from one of those online junk yard sales places. I think I paid $90.00. I will tell you this, the 240SX Tb will work but I used a 90-92 nissan Stanza TB. They are identical except the water inlet and outlet are on the bottom like the original, the 240 one is on the top. You can still make it work but the Stanza looks alot cleaner. But to answer your question, I bought my TB for $25.00 at a junk yard, It was worth every penny on my stock intake that I matched ported myself. Enjoy.

Engloid is making them again. Hes only about 10 minutes from where I am right now. It was the lower intake manifold porting and polishing that he said was a big pain. I have both a gutted plenum and a lower ported and polished intake manifold. Well see when he puts them on sale. He is also reworking heads now.

I think you can do a core charge. Basically when you get the new plenum you send him your old one.

The plenum is the upper intake manifold we have been discussing the entire time. And if you have never heard of a core charge you must of never worked on cars. It means you get your new one and send him the old stock one.
