    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). I’ve replaced a lot of hoses, and put a new gasket on the intake and checked to see if it was warped (all good there). Only thing I notice now is that around the injectors...

    I've been having fueling issues, found it was my fuel pressure regulator. Put a aeromotive one on, now I'm idling high till I start adjusting the pressure to factory spec 36 psi.

    My 280zx won't start and I'm going through everything. I decided to check out the distributor timing for the spark plugs. I checked the wires and it was not in the correct firing order. From looking it up the firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4, but how do I set this up on the distributor. Do I set the...
