What would you do if you were in my shoes? I had to remove the turbo and go back to stock for smog. I can either keep the T25 setup, upgrade to a T28 setup, or sell the car all together and pick up a 300zx TT. What would you recommend?

I only needed to look under the hood of a Z32 TT once. I decided I would never want to have one due to the difficulty of working on pretty much anything. The RWD is nice though.

They look great, and run great if kept in good condition. But once things start failing, you're screwed. Maintenance stuff is $$ and it's a major pain to just change the plugs in that thing I'm sure.

Its super easy to change the plugs and most normal maintanance. Just if you get a old one, pull the motor and change the wiring harness and all the rubber hoses, timing belt, belt tensioner, cam seals, water pump, etc.

Then its good for another 10 years. Might as well upgrade the turbos and injectors while in there and have a 400+ hp nice driving car.

get Z1's stage 2 turbo upgrade! :) Those shits looked hooooot when I saw em. Well wait.. they looked like jsut any other turbo... but yeah

Z's rule, my turbo Egg doesn't even compare in cornering/ride comfort/style to my Z. However try doing a clutch job or checkout prices on OEM/Aftermarket parts as well as what you'll pay to get the work done (assuming you don't do it yourself, which you really don't want too unless you got all the proper tools and equipment)

I would avoid anything Z1 does.

After one whole day of thinking while removing the turbo, I have decided to keep my SE-R. It only took about 5 hours (including the many breaks I took) to get it back to stock. It wasnt as bad as I thought it would be, so I will be upgrading to a T28 setup. Thanks for helping me come to a decision. I put too much work into this car to give it up because of smog.
