I think they are amazing looking especially with the J Spec front bumper and different wheels.
>>14299633 >>14299315 I am personally glad they came with the VGs, people can talk shit about how cramped they are etc but they can handle quite a bit of power and they really are not that hard to work on.
>>14300769 That one isn't mine, mine is a '91 TT with a stock body I agree, most people destroy them, but like the supra, the more that get destroyed and riced, the more rare and valuable my stock car becomes
It looks better than the 350 and 370 The TT is almost just as fast It was produced 20+ years ago and has a timeless look while the 350 and 370 are already dated. It handles extremely well for a car of its size
>>14301101 e85 is basically a stand alone ecu that can be reprogrammed. You NEED it if you are going e85 if not the car will run like garbage. If you are going to modify a car, you need an ecu (well an old car). What part of the US are you in? I know Dane at Houston Z is the main fucking man for nistune. It will be good up to like 900whp, then you will need to look at haltech etc. >>14301122 drunk but good! How you been bro?
>>14301254 Pistons are wiseco 0.5mm oversized For the hell of it here's all the big stuff -Howe oversized radiator -Z1 "massives" 2.5" intercoolers -Z1 2.5" intercooler piping -oversized oil cooler -nissan stanza 60mm throttle bodies -port matched plenum for throttle bodies -top feed fuel rail/injectors (can be used with ethanol e85 also, and the haltech can run normal gas, e85, or any mixture ratio of the two. Automatically corrects the maps to handle the octane change) -aeromotive fuel pressure regulator -aeromotive 340lph stealth fuel pump, in tank -wiseco 0.5mm oversized pistons (forged) -all seals and gaskets replaced with OEM nissan hardware during engine build -AMS oversized exhaust manifolds, heads port matched. -GT2860rs "disco potato" turbos (z1 gt675 kit) -z1 3" downpipes -3" to 2.5" midpipes (no cats) -2.5" specialty Z catback exhaust -z1 single piece driveshaft -5zigen wheels -13.5" front rotor kit, brembo (uses stock calipers with brackets, 03/04 mustang cobra rotors) -z1's best front control arms -powertrix street coilovers -SPL best rear upper control arms h -Alpine head unit, alpine amplifier and speakers. Two rockford fosgate 12" subs in custom boxes in the rear. Nothing flashy/cheesy. Amps are both hidden from view. -specialty z "high 5" clutch and lightweight flywheel
>>14301283 Not bad but honestly the Z1 intercoolers are garbage. Ash Spec is the way to go. z1 intercooler piping is hit or miss. Some are POORLY cut, some are fine (they rub on other shit). NEVER USE AMS (the canadian one) THEY LITERALLY fall off the car. They use SHITTY Chinese metal and STEAL everyones designs. They have a lot of hate in the z world and are GARBAGE parts.
>>14301299 Because it's a really great car for the price and can be a fantastic tuner. All of 4chan likes to shit on popular stuff because it's the hipster thing to do or because they know that starting a thread with "X sucks. Your opinion on X is shit." will guarantee replies.
>>14301283 Looks good man. I can't make up my mind on parts, I am stuck between spending more and having it down longer or just doing more basic stuff and getting up and running sooner. I was originally going to do :
>JWT Solid lifter race package with Tomei solid lifters >Twin GTX 2863Rs > Dual fuel pumps >Winfactory 1300cc injectors >CP 10.5:1 pistons with 1200hp wrist pins >Carrillo Rods H- beam with CARR bolts >60mm throttle bodies >Ashspec massives >2.5 Intercooler Charge pipe kit >ACL bearings 0.001 extra clearance >MSP manifolds >Full 3" SpecialtyZ exhaust >Dual pop intake with Selin translator >ARP Main and head bolts >Haltech >Ferrea 1mm over valves >1 Piece aluminum drive shaft
Porting water passage, bullnoserd crank, tear drop shaped journal exit holes I'm sure there is more I can't think of
>>14301376 Now though I am just thinking CP pistons with eagle rods (any input on eagle rods?) And the E85 setup with Nistune. I can always do the larger valves and cams later. I also have 4.10 gearing so I may have to change that as I get higher in power. I also need a new bumper and 2 fenders along with a paint job before I can get it up and running
>>14301388 Except looks for one >>14301400 Yeah I will do plugs, I will look into that exhaust I want quad tip too >>14301405 After talking to the guys at NM Imports and CZP they agreed I should go 1300cc. No street car with occasional strip use >>14301405 On 91 at the worst 13mpg but normally 17ish and that was when it was my daily and I did 120+ to and from work regularly. My best was 21ish
>>14301423 always. If you are hitting 90% duty cycle it's time to upgrade. Check it while driving (or under load). You should be checking it with every significant upgrade to hp. after 550 whp you will need a better fuel pump.
>>14301442 A long time ago I posted some 10sec time slips of my daily (before I had a shop). I have many high HP cars at my shop, that I own (well my shop technically). Next project may be a turbo vette or viper. I don't post a lot of that stuff here because /o/ is full of people who refuse to accept they don't know something and spout bullshit. So I don't share good stuff here.
>>14301388 Are you gonna pay to have one put in a shop to have it's emissions problem fixed, plus any other things you might need to do to make it "legal" AND pay top dollar for it and to have it shipped from Japan? For the price you'll be spending, it's retarded. Also, in California more than others, if you get caught driving one, they take it and crush it. For the price, the 300ZX is one of the best tuner cars to get. Cheap, reliable, quick, and there are quite a few affordable upgrades you can do to it to make it just that much quicker. If had X amount of dollars to spend and imported an illegal Skyline, you could have used that money to get a Z, upgrade the shit out of it, and probably still have some money left over for dinner and the Z would blow the doors off the Skyline.
>>14301476 it does, I have never posted it here. never will. Don't need a bunch of bitter weebs blowing up my page and bothering my customers. It's a well known shop, not a top 10 in the US or anything, but I see the name mentioned online from time to time by randoms.
One anon about 4 years ago figured it out because I accidentally posted a pic from my shops website.
>>14301466 Yeah I don't really post much or lurk a lot. I check every 4-5hours for Z threads and just do quick check of the first few threads. You should post more about good stuff like what you are talking about.
>>14301488 I did. I worked a high paying job for years. Browsed 4chan in college (and never left). Got SICK of the corporate BS and used the money to start a shop. It's been running for a few years now. Have a handful of mechanics. A partner. And a shit load of awesome stuff (like dynos, custom parts made for us, custom tunes etc).
For the first two years I lived off my savings and invested everything back into the shop. My partner brought a TON of existing customers and I brought the cash.
>>14301480 I'm 23 and I love to drive. They still do crush them, though. I haven't heard of any lately, but I know that, here in California, they crush them more often than other states. You may be able to get away with it in other states on the east coast, but when a cop stops you, you have a 14 digit VIN he can't enter into his computer, a model he can't find in his data base, and a likely chance that he may take it. Some cops may be cool about it when they see you driving in the "passenger" seat, but others might just be assholes. Honestly, if you want a Skyline GT-R, your best bet is to just get an American GT-R, but they are so fucking expensive that it's not really a car for a regular guy.
>>14301535 Always take that kind of work to an engine builder. We out source that kind of work because the proper equipment is EXPENSIVE. Most shops do that, and we don't hide it. We get a discount for sending a ton of work over, then we can give the customer a bit of a discount instead of going direct. Everyone makes a little money, customer gets a warranty and top notch work.
>>14301519 Are you me? I'm going down the same path Just accepted a full time spot in a high paying corporate job that I hope to work for a few years and then peel off and start my own shop once I have enough money and a solid business plan
>>14301526 I understand man, good luck to you and your shop. I think I would enjoy working at a shop with friends and on my car more but I need to learn more but always worried I am gonna fuck something up. I have done some of my own work on my Z but don't think I will install my rebuilt engine, I just don't trust myself.
>>14301557 fantastic. I don't spend a lot of time there anymore honestly. I am working on buying another business. I stop by weekly and check in. I still play with the cars. I go late on the weekends and fuck around with my buddy.
Make sure you have the customers FIRST. I recommend becoming STUPID proficient in ONE car and working on them on the side at your home. Then once you have a bunch of people lined up, rent a shop space. Buy TWO lifts minimum (we fucked up and started with one). They run $1-$5k installed depending on used or new. Then prepare to LOVE office work lol.
>>14301571 Yeah I have read some articles on the site and done some work always just worried I will damage something. At the same time I don't really understand /o/s whole you should do all your work and if a shop touches it your a piece of shit mindset.
>>14301981 >When they work >When all the gauges work >When the blower fan feels like kicking on >When the clock works >When the A/C doesn't blow itself up >When the neoprene doesn't crack or chip >When it actually feels like delivering power >When the master cylinder decides to stop taking a piss >When the oil pressure gauge doesn't flatline at 7k
Some days I miss my 300zx, some days I'm glad my brother bought it and blew the trans.
>>14302102 I'm glad I'm not the one who found out the trans was rebuilt incorrectly lol. Shit, I do miss it because I love the way they handle (weight isn't a problem either) and drive as an FR. I can't stand the S chassis compared to the Z chassis. Not saying I wouldn't own an S13 because I would, but the Z32 is a thrill in comparison.
If the Air Force sends me to Japan, I'd consider buying one there since they're worth dirt over there from what I see. Though, I'd be conflicted on buying an R32 because of SC Bro. His is pure sex, if I could find an R32 or R33 in midnight purple I would buy it.
>>14304602 I've convinced him to do the manual swap I wanted to do, it looks like a bitch though. He's probably going to buy an N/A donor car for parts (Iowa Zs are fucking trashed) for everything from wiring to the trans/mounts. I now need to convince him to pop off the sump and check everything out down there since it leaks like a bitch.
I know the oil pressure gauge going from 80lbs to 0lbs was common as fuck, so the sender unit is shot... Hopefully that was it lol. He didn't believe it would fluctuate like that until he bought it.
>>14299109 >needs two turbos to make sub 300 hp >350 which is naturally aspirated makes same power and is more reliable because less parts to break Honestly, the only people who buy Z32 are poorfags who want a Z but can't afford anything from this century.
>>14305544 >350z can be had for less than 10 >300zx TT cost as much >300zx TT requires much more in maintenance (hence more $) >300zx TT can hit 550whp on stock block with simple upgreade >350z would require a completely build engine and turbos for the cost of $15k to hit those numbers reliably.
>>14305570 I don't really need 550hp because I'm not at Le Mans. And increasing that much power from a stock engine is fucking with reliability and asking for engine troubles. Thanks, but I prefer my cars naturally aspirated. It's not everything about muh numbers. inb4 u can't compete or some shit
>>14305601 I agree with you anon. I was thinking about going the F/I route with my Si but decided to keep it NA for a while. Currently making 210 to the wheels. Good enough for daily driving and some fun every once in a while.
>>14305765 So? It says the 300zx TT requires more $ in maintenance. It's older so it cost more. Big deal. And maintaining a turbo is going to take more maintenance. More parts to maintain doesn't = unreliable. It just means more. And that also doesn't mean tards cranking it up to be "lol fast" makes it unreliable. It makes it an abused car. The 350z's were popping manual trannies like candy when it came out. The o-rings blow out. The auto is garbage. The electronics go to shit and it's barely 10 years old.
>>14305794 >>14305745 This. They are very reliable as long as people actually keep up the maintenance. I have seen plenty of TTs that are running fine over 100k miles and N/As even more. Guy I work with has an N/A with almost 200k on it and it still runs fine.
>>14305857 >I thought GTS-Ts came in midnight purple though? IIRC, midnight purple was never available on R32. But if you wanted a special paint for R32 only then that would be dark blue pearl or something. R33 started the purple trend.
>>14305871 I thought it was just the GT-Rs that didn't. Damn lol
I do like the R33 as well, so if found one in midnight purple that wouldn't drain me completely I'd consider purchasing it.
Even if I don't go to Japan, I'll end up buying one at some point. The point of an R32 for me right now was the ability to bring it back to the US and drive it without having to wait a few more years or have the fear of it being crushed. >>14305881 Dark blue pearl is another favorite of mine, shame the R32 never came with midnight purple though. I love it on the R33.
>>14305959 The US used car market is such a sack of shit that I don't even think that's that expensive for the condition it's in. Though, I don't think 25 year imported cars pertain to that market, the condition pays off for that.
Shit, if I could purchase an R32/R33 for 8-10k with less than 45k I would be content.
>>14305959 >You can find a R34 GTR in England for that price >R34 You mean R32 right? No fucking way you're getting an R34 in the UK for that money. Riced or not. And let's be fair even in Japan you would be paying that much for a GTSt in as nice a condition as that one, or more
>>14305988 I've seen quite a fair share of R34 GTRs on English and Irish car selling sites for 15 and if not 10 grand pounds/euros. But most of them had super ugly body kits and British insurance really bites you in the ass for owning such a car so owners are trying to get rid of it as fast as possible. Also seen a R34 GTR in Millenium Jade color that never left the showroom for 60 thousand pounds.
>>14306029 GTR mang, I know a difference between GTT, GT25 and GTR. Regularly check some of their sites, I remember seeing a mint R33 GTR RHD converted too (don't know what was that thing doing in the UK though).
>>14306053 Oh yeah, EK Type R for 900 pounds in good condition without any modifications, but that was the only one time I've seen it for so cheap. Fuck if I know the reason behind such low prices but I know what I saw.
>>14306111 It was a long time ago and I doubt the ad is still up. Just browse Irish and British motoring marketplaces and you might find a gem. >>14306125 Steering wheel was on the left side. Left hand is the hand you change gears with.
>>14306214 I personally think it looks better then the supra (never really liked it not sure why) the RX7 and 3000GT (which I actually like the look but Jesus people call Z32s unreliable they are a corolla compared to these)
>Buy a body dmg z32 NA as my fun summer car ealry 2015, didn't even know it existed until I saw an ad >don't understand why no one talks about this car, fun as hell, really nice balance >suddenly end of 2015 it starts coming up at different places
What happened? Do I need to fix mine up completely and sell for profit?
>>14306596 Yeah same here. Actually never had any big problems until I blew the gasket between the turbo manifold and turbo. I have done some work (valve cover leak etc) but nothing really major. Never regretted it though, previous owner put cheap shit on it like Chinese coilover and such but at least he always changed the oil at 3k with Mobile 1 full syn
>>14306616 Nothing seriously wrong with mine (yet), but i'm waiting for the head gaskets to die on me. Radiator exploded and water pump is leaking heavily from the "weep hole" so it's time for an early 120k job.
I have other manual cars so the fun part really doesn't bother me that much. Mostly just gottagofast. The power thing is a bit worrying since it appears an upgraded auto runs about $2k + S/H and that's with a stock converter.
>>14306669 Make sure to put OEM headgaskets back in, I blew a radiator hose so out a new aftermarket one in with silicone hoses. Yeah I bought it and immediately took to local Z specialist and had them do the 120k kit.
>>14306689 >Z specialist >mfw Z fags have to take their cars not to Nissan workshop but to Z specialists how unreliable pieces of shit they are Was he an old Japanese wise guy with 40 years on the touge?
I'd rather not swap the engine since buying a decent one seems to cost more than buying an entire TT/auto with a blown transmission does. Also it'd always be an N/A body and I imagine (although I have no idea what I'm talking about so correct me if I'm wrong) it probably uses different rear end, transmission, gear ratios, and suspension ratings
>>14306864 They come at 9ish stock I want to say. I ran mine at 14 for 10k and they just started taking a shit but hey they had 136k so not bad in my book. I think there are to many factors but they are useless above 15 or 16psi I believe. Just crank it to 14-15 and enjoy.
>>14306742 The R200 (N/A) and R230 (TT) have different final drives, however the transmissions are the same in both. For drag, the R200 is used because the final is 4.08-4.10(?), but for DD purposes the R230 would be the better rear to have with the driveline.
The VG30DETT is about 1500 bucks from Japan, or at least it was when I looked. So expense wise that would be a hit. Now, you could turbo a VG30DE because they're cheap when they come out of the J30 (usually less miles), however you lack rod squirters in the N/A block.
Shit, I even toyed with the idea of a VQ35DE swap because wrecked 350zs are cheap. A guy with another matte yellow Z in the Des Moines area (copyin' motherfuck) has a 6 speed in his Z. I have no fucking clue the write up on that, but it was a TT with that 6 speed.
>>14306977 Are they a glass transmission? His 300zx looked exactly like mine, just with the superior engine and manual trans.
If it wasn't apparent that I didn't mod my Z, my did have the 4.08s stock diff. I didn't actually mind the highway drive with it. That TT I drove last year was comfortable with the tall diff too, though I've heard it's better to swap in the 4.08s and 4.10s.
Just out of curiosity, what sort of RPM would a stock TT with 4.08s run at 100kmh/60mph in the highest gear? I have to do a lot of highway driving (as in, it's a 30 minute drive for me to even get gas lol)
>>14307069 You can do the math on a site for the exact answer but I know I would cruise around 3k but I also have different tires and would never do 60 haha >>14307080 I have not had experience with the 350z trans I just had a lot.of guys tell me stay away from it. I know Bane was running a stock trans on his 900whp Z
>>14307129 I'm still in research phase for the q45 for which trans to use. I really like the tko500 but pricing is keeping me from pulling trigger on that. the cd009 with collins adapter looks like a good option IF you can get a trans super cheap. both the cd009 and t56 both suffer from unknown conditions. throwing it in the car and making all the adapters to find out the trans is garbage or worn out doesn't sit well with me. tko500 looks like a better option every time I explain it to myself.
>>14307163 My buddy has a T-56 magnum in his Termi and that trans is sweet. >>14307171 You may want to do some research to make sure but I don't remember it being bad, I still could take it up to 150 no problem.
