I'm looking into getting a Z3 and I'm finding myself very surprised at the absolute lack of info in turbocharging Z3's. There is no shortage of turbo information on the M52B28, which is most likely the motor I would be working with, but that is only for the E36s. Is there a reason no one turbos their Z3?
My questions are:
Where can I find a turbo manifold that will fit in the Z3? (this is what I'm imagining is the reason why no one does this)
Where can you find clutches capable of the increased torque?
And what kind of power can the transmissions stand up to?
Currently I drive a 1984 Porsche 944, and as much as I love it and would like to just buy a 944 Turbo I just can't afford to maintain a 26 year old car and make 400hp or so. On the porsche forums there is no shortage of people trying all kinds of things like engine/transmission swaps, twin scroll turbos, various tuning methods and the list goes on. I realize that there is a huge community for the e30/36/46 turbo conversion, but what is the deal with z3 turbos? Is there a reason no one does this? Or am I just looking in all the wrong places?
Thanks for helping me out here, I'm really confused
