    Hey everyone! I’m hoping to find an 87 z31 non turbo MAF sensor. I bought one already and it gave me the same problem.

    I'm wondering if there is another vehicle that uses the same MAF as the 87 z31 NA?

    Hey guys, so I just replaced the valve stem seals on my '88 NA, but I'm still getting a horrendous amount of blue smoke when idling and accelerating for the first 5-10 minutes after pulling out of my driveway. I just did a compression test and all of the readings came back fine (around 180 PSI)...

    Hi, I recently bought an 87 z31 5 speed N/A less than a week ago and have been eagerly learning about the vehicle but can't seem to find a solid answer to my fuel issues. I have an analog dash in which the gas light is always illuminated. The main fuel gauge seems to reach empty when I fill it...
