What is in my 78 Z


Recommended Posts

Hey Jeff,

The '78 came stock with the L28 and if I am correct the 5spd was available but not common... most of the 5spds are conversions using ZX trannies. Further more the rearend, if it was a M/T to start off with, should be an R200... the A/T came with the R180's.

I'm just a rookie at this so if I'm wrong someone please set me straight.

Oh Jeff, by the way, the 78 should have had Fuel Injection stock also. Does yours have carbs? A good site for Technical reads is www.zhome.com ... they have a lot of answers for production numbers, options(240Z), and stock specs.

not entirely a true statement. my 78 is a factory 4 speed.

according to the 1978 dealer brochure, the 5 speed and the auto transmissions are referred to as "optional".
