That red one you posted was beautiful. They all are actually.
The Z’s have always been my favorite car growing up, and I thought why not seize the opportunity and pull the trigger on one now lol

It's a pretty slow car and requires a few mods to make it a fun car but it is a nice car. Much more fun than a 2.0 LX, that's for sure.

He posted in the 10th Gen Facebook forum that he is selling his turbo kit/upgrade.

Just updating everyone! I changed my decision in getting rid of the build, and I will continue building this. Will keep you updated!

If you’re not going to get an ECU upgrade(I would recommend Syvecs), you should look into converting to a return-style fuel system with an FMU and run larger injectors+fuel pump to prevent a lean condition.

It’s relatively cheap if you DIY, and many budget boosted D/B/F series engines have lived beyond their years using such a setup.

Otherwise, you’re on borrowed time with the stock fuel system.

Ugh. You should have just picked the Z. Maybe you were looking at the wrong one...

Regardless... good luck. Don't blow it up.
I owned a non turbo Z from that gen for a short time. bought it used, drove great, then 6 months in, started getting an awesome tick sound, found out they had known wrist pin issues. Oh well, it was fun and then dumped it for an Eagle Talon turbo, and that car made me realize I should only buy hondas lol.

Other than the '77 280z I've had.. the other 4 have all been turbos. (shrug) They do have a tendency to get noisy lifters on the older VG engines, both the S and DOHC. Pretty tough though. Old and obsolete... the VQs have been pretty well panned they're so old as well, and they were an evolution of the iron VG... but they're generally pretty durable. PITA to work on though.

I used to LOVE Eagle Talons. That cockpit interior and they were brutally fast when modified. Used to follow Extreme Motorsports and Buschur Racing. Oh man........
Still remember in my old street days, when I was racing my turbocharged/nitrous Subaru Outback Sport, my first brutal loss was to an Eagle Talon from a roll. That HURT!!! Still have a lot of respect for them cars.

It was a super fun car. But when shit starts failing and you are 22 in your first job out of college, its not the best to have an unreliable sorta kind race car for your daily lol so I got my ass back into a honda real fast!

I had a 82 Series II 280zx Turbo.
Shit was slow as hell, but by god it was fun
