Well, this is the first time I've been to this site, and so far, everything's been very resourceful. However, I'm literrally a Noob to the 300zx as I've only been farmiliar with the 240sx S13's and S14's. But For some reason, these older cars draw out to me more. So I'm gonna be buying a new car (my last ride was a crappy winter beater, aka Honda Civic 89' with a integra short stick that some dude on ebay sent me when i ordered a civic short stick for 5 bucks...). And well... needless to say, i'll be lookin at the z31's, If things go well, I might even buy it tomorrow. Anything I should look out for? I've been to zbum's site regarding this, but any personal issues to look out for that came up after buying the car? And lastly, (correct me if i'm wrong), the VG30ET engine is the stock turbo engine right? If so, can I expect to be able to get around 300-400 hp at the wheel given time, money, and effort? (my bro had a S13 with a s14 SR20DET motor with 10k invested and is taking out STi's, turbocharged firebirds, cobras, etc, and I'm also hoping it's not gonna be like fixin some 65' mustang where I gotta be ordering custom parts all the time for somethin like a oil filter but still be able to get enough performance to make those ricers cry and leave v-8's behind, stock anyways). Thanks for any input, opinions, and responses!
