Hi,
I know that oil pump for '92 3000GT Twin Turbo is not available any more. I have been searching through internet and asked my Japanese friend to find one, part number MD150013. No way to get one at all, period!
Nevertheless, I found that the N/A SOHC is almost identicle.
Do you think it can be modified to be used with TT engine?
Has it been done before? What should be done?
Or do you recommend any other oil pump for TT engine?

The only thing that I could think of is that the oil flow demand for the turbo engines is higher due to the flow to each turbocharger that the NA engine does not have. I don't know if they accommodated this with changing the pump geometry or if they just changed the spring in the relief valve. You'd have to measure to know for sure.

Are you sure you have the correct part number? I see MD175583 as the part number for 91-92 twin turbos. edit: it still looks to be out of stock though...bummer. Is yours defective or outside the tolerances listed in the service manual?

Do a search. Its been discussed 100x. Get one for an NA and change the spring.

Do you know the part number of the N/A one? I asked many people someone said it is not compatible.
Unfortunately I cannot find the discussion about that, just only part want. I would be grateful if you provide me the links of those modifications.
