    So I spent about an hour last night checking lights to make sure they were working. At first glance it they all seem to be working, except the tail lights, which is likely a bulb or something since all the other lights in front and behind them in the harness are working.

    I think I have the wrong intake manifold for my 82 280zx. I’ve been having issues of it idling very high (2500-3000 rpm).

    My local junkyard has a few 280ZX's which all have engines, and I am planning on getting one of the engines to rebuild and put into my current ZX, a 1981. The one I am looking at is a 1980 model with a manual transmission. Are there any differences between the 1980 and 81 that I should be aware...
