    Hey guys, I'm new to the Z scene and I really like the 280zx. I was wondering how much hp this block can handle without serious modification. While I do plan on using a forced induction system, I don't plan to use a lot of boost. I want to build the car to at least keep up with my buddy's 370z...

    Recently bought a project 280z, for the first week it wasn’t having any issues idling. The only funny thing it did was while you were driving if you were moving more than like 10mph and put the clutch in the rpms would come up until you rolled to a stop then dropped back down. I didn’t do much...

    My rear main seal is somehow stuck in its housing. It had a pretty substantial leak so I bought a new one to replace it. By looking at the new one It looks like there's a metal coiled ring surrounded by the rubber housing of the seal. I am thinking of taking a propane torch to the stuck seal...

    I recently discovered my transmission is toast off of my 1978 280z (4 speed). I am looking into a rebuilt 5 speed from a 280zx (unknown year) for $550. My questions are 1. Will the 280zx trans fit my 280z without major modification? 2. If it does fit, Is 550 a fair price for a rebuilt trans...

    So my 280z rear diff is pretty much toast. I'm looking at a 240z diff to replace it. Does the 240z diff fit the 280z? (Is it bolt on) If not, how difficult would it be to make it fit. Thanks.
