  1. 2 and a half is what all say is the best for a nice exhaust.I run 3 inch and feel i am losing some bottom end power.Car still seems fast but some local z thugs told me i am leaving power on the table with my set up.It was a turbo car before but running su setup now.James Salvato Santa Fe New Mexico usa....

  2. I know that the hardcore traditionalists will never understand the mod scene with a 70s z.You like it stock(and slow)...I love a true clean vintage all original s30,s and respect that.I am sort of a traditionalist and would allways keep it nissan.This v8 car breaks all the rules but i still respect the hours this guy put in his zcar.I would take his car over any original z i have seen.Believe me I have seen some clean s30s.At least he is in the running.Give em a break.

  3. Hey Padam07,

    Looks a little rough.Mine was rougher when I purchased it in 2005.You did the right thing to purchase a s30 z.I remember how pumped I was when I bought mine.It never wears off.I still see mine in the front yard every day and get excited.There is somthing very special about these cars we tinker with.It will take tons of hard resto work but you will enjoy the process.Have fun and good luck.When you have a question about any z car,come to this site and the anwser will be there.

  4. I know this is a classic z car site.I just want to see what all you guys think of the new 370z car.Nissan is pushing the new car as a future 240z.It is shorter and wider than a 350z.Bigger and better motor as well.Some might not have heard about it.The shape of the windows reminds me of a car I know.I know some love it and others do not like it.What is your opinion.

  5. That car would be a good roller with a few G'S.DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED..Some of these guys are runnin clean cars.Good for them.Build it up and drive it.I personally would never turn away a z car that year in that condition.I have more fun with a car you don't worry abot hurting.My car was in rougher shape when purchased.Do some homework and do it yourself.You will save cash and the reward of doing it yourself makes it that much better.$15,000,00 is alot of money.You must be doing rbtt swaps or something.


  6. Its great that you can enter a clean s30 in a show,with show cars(muscle cars)from america,and you will get some respect.And when you get to the local track day,seems everyone likes to see it run.You get the older car guys saying,I had one of those when I was a kid.Gotta love the z car....
