Heavy compared to us, but SOOOO much potential since they have the extra cylinders and another turbo in there, definately some great competition to a highly modded stage 4 car from a roll.AjIsDope said:I'm looking for some info on 300zx tt's such as how much power the stock motor can take, etc. If anyone here is knowledgable on this topic I would appreciate the help.
I assume you are looking for times and HP.AjIsDope said:I'm looking for some info on 300zx tt's such as how much power the stock motor can take, etc. If anyone here is knowledgable on this topic I would appreciate the help.
They do seem like pretty stout setups. Kind of like a "poor mans" Supra, in a way....but it's a Nissan. :tongue:DTR rex said:
the cars are actually quite amazing, but are similar to supras with the whole dyno queen thing. With a few grand of work and on the stock turbo's you can easily run low 12's and better and do it fairly reliably as well.
(are these cars starting to divert your attention from the mustang?)

I love the older z's.....
I can never find one for sale here, though.
thanks for making my heart ache even more. 8 (
Never heard that about the USDM vs. JDM motor. Any idea why? Also, why do you prefer the Z over the Supra? (just curious)Originally posted by GTScoob
I was going to get one and then my parents bought the WRX.
They are fairly stout as far as the motor goes. The USDM motor is actually stronger than the JDM motor, kinda ironic in this day and age. The only downside is the v6 configuration because an inline 6 is more balanced. It requires a bunch of custom work to make a single turbo Z but there are so many high HP twin turbo Zs that it really isnt necessary. They recieve mods very well just like any other turbo car. Intake, exhaust, etc will yield very impressive results.
Personally I'd take a Z over a Supra so good choice on cars.
They are a bear to work on. It looks like they dropped the motor in from 20 feet above and bolted it up where it landed when they built it. I had to change an alternator on one once.....I wasn't happy.AjIsDope said:Why do you say that? I heard the injectors were a task to replace but that's about it.
So it's just a cramped area to work in then. Gotcha. Yeah the scooby is pretty easy to work on but I think they meant it to be that way knowing that sooooo many people would be modifying them. Look how many stock TT 300's are running around.Trainrex said:They are a bear to work on.
