Nice car, silver and black looks good. I'm interested in seeing how the Z32 subframe swap goes. I've got a 93 non-turbo parts car with 4.08 gears that i'd like to swap into my TTz. I'd like to hear from someone who's done it successfully.

1984 Nissan 300ZX Aniversery Edition (Scooter)

Trophies: 6 Give a trophy Last updated Sep 8, 2011

About

In 1984 Nissan Motors produced 75,351 of its all new 300ZX (Z31) for the United States market. Of these Z cars 5,148 limited-edition 300ZX Turbos were badged to honor Nissan’s 50th Anniversary. 84' was also the year that Datusn officially became Nissan in the US. The cost of this Z ($26,000) was very pricy for the time (todays equivalent based on inflation rates; ranges in $52,000 range)... I didn't pay that much. I got mine busted for much much cheaper.

Specs

Stock Specifiactions:
3.0 L (2960cc) SOHC V6 Engine generating
Horsepower: 200 horsepower @ 5200 Rpms
Torque: 227 ft. lbs. @ 3600 Rpms
0-60: 7.3 seconds
1/4 Mile 15.3 seconds

Stock Boost on Garret T3 60 series turbocharger: 6.5 lbs
Compression Ratio: 7.8:1


**Needless to say, I currently have a little more pep in my step. I haven't dyno'd the car yet, but based on the mods, I'd like to say its floating lower-mid 200's to the wheels at stock boost. 320-350hp is the tenative and conservative goal... which shouldnt be a problem.

More to come...

-Working on a Custom Modified Maxima Upper Pleanum to Promote Flow.
-I have the Rear Sub-Frame/ Suspension from a Z32 as well as one from a S14 that I will swap (still deciding). The Sub-Frame doesn't allow the car to squat when you get on it, increases stability around corners and gives me some minor form of camber adjustment. I will also go from a 3.54 open Diff, to a 4.11 LSD. Should make it pretty peppy :)
