Own a $45K Sports Car for $10K
January 21, 2009
I am on my second 300zx. My first was a 1996 300zx non-turbo. I now own a 1993 300zx Twin Turbo. These cars are great, you get performance, speed and handling at a great price, plus T-tops. Sunroofs and soft top convertibles have got nothing on T-tops. Mine is a daily driver and has 35,000 miles and it is beautiful. Only take these cars to a Z mechanic. A couple modifications such as intake, exhaust and a JWT ECU and you have 400hp. Be careful however, even on dry roads I spun out alot the first few weeks I owned the car. But now 8 months later this never happens as I am use to controlling the power. When the twin turbos kick in at around 3,000 rpms, whoosh you are gone, bye bye Corvette. A few problems that occured in the 1990-1993 models such as injector failure should now be fixed. Also check the rear mail seal of oil leaks. Its only a $15 part, but the transmission has to be dropped to fix it. Watch out for blue or white smoke, which means something is wrong with the turbo seals or your engine heads. There is a button to change the suspension from touring to sport. How cool! All leather steering wheel, seats, shifer and boot, ebrake. Not like all the plastic fake leather on these new cars nowadays. If I could pickup another 300zx I definitely would. This car and the Toyota Supra were the best 90's sport production cars ever made. Any sports car enthusiast should own one. i highly recommend this car.
