    Nice ride man! Good luck on the restore. If say around Colorado, AWD will be the majority of racer types. Put an LS1 in that thing and have some fun.

    Ive got a turbo mustang making a little over 500 to the wheel and a 57 ford f100 that I am building that is literally in pieces with no engine yet. I have been keeping my eye out for an old datsun 240z or a 94-98 240z to throw an rb20det into. Ive had the engine for a while but havent come across a car

    My first two cars were 1984 300zx turbos. Tech87 is a member here and has a 280z, but he's too lazy to put the rebuilt engine back in it.

    I had a 91 300zx Twin Turbo until I crashed it pretty bad about 10 years ago.

    That's a bummer, I helped a friend when we came back from Iraq do a motor swap in a US 2+2 1990, to the twin turbo and manual transmission, was a slick car, if I was to ever do a Japanese car that'd be the one. Looks sexy with t-tops. But I'm all about american mussel cars, especially gm... 3rd gen camaro, transam or firebird is my dream build.... One day.....

    I had aftermarket intercooler, exhaust, AFC controller, computer chips, air filtered system installed and beef up the suspension. It was fun taking it up to woodland park and had the t-top off most of the time. Really fun while it lasted.

    I'm sorry you crashed it. Sounds like it was fun. Starting to collect parts to turbo swap mine z.

    I wish i had room for that Z. I just got my truck and thats probably a 2 year project, hopefully a lot less... I have to get my axle mocked up and over to my boy (this weekend) to weld up my instant center brackets, axle tubes, and ears for my anti-roll bar setup on my mustang. New 331 gears, axles, and a Torson 31 spline dif all need to go in along with new upper and lower rear control arms. Still need to rebuild my trans too but thats a 1 day project once i get the rebuild kit in and determine if i need any new gears.
