I bought an 1984 300zx AE form a Doctor my dad works with for 4,000 last november. It had 48,000 miles on it and i was wondering if there is anything that i could go or should do to make it run better like a k&n cold air or hks cold air. Which one is better? Also i was looking for headlight covers that are smoked but i cant find any that are on a 1984 300zx. If any one finds a pic of one send me the link thanks

i dont know if that will make it run better. I also dont think that it makes a differance on which one you get. Its which everone you like.

Personally id go K&N, ive had very good expierience from them. Dont expect more then about 5HP from one, and maybe 1-2mpg better. But it does sound good.

Im going to dyno my SS on the 14th. Once with the stock airbox, and twice with a K&N filter. Ill have the dyno sheets and Ill post them here. we will be able to see the difference in the K&N filter.

Would your numbers be skewed because you have HKS exhaust compared to the stock exhaust system? I'd be interested in seeing the dyno results!

After I installed the K&N cone filter it seemed like the top of 2nd gear pulled harder. Engine noise definitely sounds better.

Personally, if that car is stock and has that low of miles on it I would leave it stock. It will be worth more in the end.

Being that its an AE, If it is stock and in really good condition (with that low of miles) its worth any where from $8,000-15,000!!

I'd do some research to see where you sit as far as AE's go...if you're on the lower end like me (more around the $3,000-5,000) than have at it...otherwise I'd try to keep it stock...

At the very least keep the stock parts you remove....good luck! also check out these sites to get an idea...

my numbers wont be skewed that much because of the HKS. I doubt it gives you that much power. its the same size as the stock exhaust, just with better flow. we will see how everything goes on the 14th.
