    300z's are a pita to work on, the engine bay is ridiculously tight. if the turbos havent been rebuilt, they they probably need to be....

    Yup. My friend had one. Turbos REALLY needed to be rebuilt or replaced. I beat it with my auto teg.

    z31 (looks like 240sx)or z32 (twin)?
    single turbo will outlast the twinners. rwd fun power.
    bad mpg both. hope its a z31. 80s 200sx has the same v6 as z31 but w/ no turbo. 240sx is almost happy medium of the z/civic
    if z31 please use black window trim. some have gull doors.
    z31 has better weight distribution i think.
    z32 engine won't last as long as ur civic. pretty sure no steering wheel tilt for z32. z32 2 seater looks better than +2. please don't put a spoiler on z32.

    A Jeep? That is a far stretch from both a Civic and a Z...What made you consider going that route?

    haha well basically I realized that I do love working on cars and that while that all good and all I am still 19 and live in OH and trying to drive around a lil rice burner doesnt make much sense at all so I figured that a Jeep is cool I can modify it easily work on it and in the winter its a champ but more importantly its manual so i can fuck around with it on dirt roads and snowed parking lots learn control then possibly go to the car that I seriously want to modify

    The 300zx's are cool cars, but they weren't built well.

    If you want to constantly work on a car, the 300zx is your ticket.

    If you like to work on cars, a Jeep is perfect for you. :ph34r:
    Fuel prices are going to come back up. Then, you might regret the Jeep.
    Not trying to talk you out of anything, I'm just still surprised that it's an SUV from a Civic.

    Having never worked on one, I can't say. But taking your word for it, a Jeep isn't far behind it.

    I see your from Green, yeah Jeep + the Airport trails = awesome time, we used to take my friends Tracker back there all the time. And did you buy your car from a kid by the name of Pace?

    I can tell you different. My buddy has a CJ8, (Scrambler) and the owner before decided that instead of replacing a pump seal for the top of the tank, he was just going to install a water separator in the fuel line and silicone the tank. well my buddy decided that enough was enough with that and pulled the tank out. Being a connector was never connected he never could tell how much fuel was in it, but to his surprise, not much fuel was, but there was half a tank of water. His jeep had ran like there was no tomorrow with half a tank of water. Jeeps are pretty well built, and from some experience I've never seen much of a problem from them. But if you dont maintain them. they will go to crap on you. just like almost every other make.

    there are a lot of cars i would take before getting a 300zx. i would consider a 240sx before one of those.

    It's the constant "little tinkering" that I was referring to. I agree with Jeeps being well built and designed, for the most part, to last.

    I was almost sure that was his car, didnt know he was selling it, he has a Sol in the works that should be pretty sweet when done, lots of real JDM goodies.
