Hi,
I just got an 82 280zx, and i was wondering if there was any mods that i could do to it to make it run faster. (want to race it) If anyone knows any could you please let me know.

thanks,
Charles

if you search the archives.. you'll probably find a fairly comprehensive list of things to do...
the basics would be.. cold air induction... larger throttle body...if its not already, a turbo AFM... headers... (i dont think headers are either possible.. or a good idea on turbo cars)(dont have a turbo.. so dont know specifics)
free flow exhaust....
you could get into engine mods...
perhaps even swapping out the engine for a turbo.. if its not already...

i have an 80 ZX... and its not too slow...
i raced a 66 mustang tonight.. i'm assuming he had a st 6.. cause neither one of us could get away... although i was SLIGHTLY pulling on him.. i think he may have either had an auto tranny.. or didnt know how to shift...

and most cars i "play" with... spank me... but thats cause i like to see what the big boys can do.. so i'll rev my engine by an SS camaro... or BOSS mustang..
i have yet to even hang with a beamer.. i hate it when they assume i want to race... and start trying to tempt me.. cause i cant say no..
then they just keep on going....and i cant ever catch up...

i've got this one stretch of road... i guess its my lucky stretch... cause i've never lost a race there..
and its actually the only road i've won a race...
but 4 bangers are easy prey... unless they've been modified.. and more than just stickers.

anyways.. have fun...
keep us posted on what you've done to your car...
