    I just recently bought a 1985 300zx turbo and its been a nightmare trying to replace the struts and shocks. I was originally going to go with KYB replacements (cheap and easy) but I can't seem to find the KYB CONVERSION KIT 108A. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to find that part...

    I've got an 86 n/a slushbox and it won't downshift from 3rd. It also short shifts even when you floor it, shifts at about 3k when you floor it and if you floor it while cruising it just sits in 3rd whether you're going 15 or 40.

    Hello again everyone, Posting on here again with a different issue. My MAF is acting up and not working right. I've done a ton of research and found out I can't simply buy one online. Seems like they're practically non-existent anymore. So with that said, I decided to try and fix it myself but...

    Hello everyone, new here to the Z car website. I have a 1987 Nissan 300ZX naturally aspirated engine. I just rebuilt the motor on it with new internals and parts. I went to go fix the timing on the engine last night but the car will not start. It used to start before but now it refuses to. I...

    Hello. I'm new to the Z community and cars in general. I truly love working on cars, even if it's a royal pain. I want to get into drifting and after lots of research I got a z31 (86). I was so excited to finally have my project car that was in excellent condition and ready to drive. I still...

    Hey. The inevitable has occurred and I, a 16 year old highschool student, want to begin a project. I have had my eyes set on a z31 for quite some time, and spent more time on FB market and CL than I have outside. I would absolutely love to spend the last two years I have here working on a...

    I currently have a 87’ 300zx 2+2 with no engine it. I am also new to working on cars, I was wondering if there’s any way a rack and pinion from a 2009 370z can go on 87’ z.

    So just cause my engine that I have is old and I’m gonna need to take it out anyway to work on it. I wanted to ask what engines would work in a z31. I’ve done a bit of research and I know a lot of people say just get another vg and drop it in but I kinda wanna keep my options more open then just...

    I’m looking forward to buying an 86 z31. Owner states that about a year ago he was driving down the highway, he wasn’t speeding. He felt the the car just drop a few gears and a popping sound from the transmission. He suggested it may be the flywheel or the torque converter. Vacuum lines...

    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. (It was off a junker) So I was wondering if anyone here might have one laying around that they know works. I just got my car back in June and I would really like to get it back...

    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)...

    This is the first post of a long thread that will cover the process by which I prepare my Z31 for track use. Part of this project will include building an RB26 from scratch. Budgets, product data, and schedule will be documented as we go. Here's the twist - IM NOT A MECHANIC! This will be...

    The digital instrument panel doesn't work but sometimes it kicks on for a min but still have never got the speedometer or tach to work at all. The foldout headlight button only works the headlights when the led panel is working.
