Title: [Carstairs AB, Canada] FS: 1991 300ZX Twin Turbo (JDM)
Post by: VG30DETT on 12:31:51 AM / 28-Sep-12
For sale is my 1991 300ZX Twin Turbo 2+2 as I'm looking to pursue another build. It's been lightly modified from stock by a mature owner and sits around the 330hp mark at 11psi for a low 13 second e/t. Price is OBO but I will not reply to low ballers and tell you to get off my lawn if you decide to contact my tire with your foot. I may entertain trades + cash, but am not interested in ATV's, BMW's, Mercedes, Volkswagen's, SUV's, monopoly money, blankets, beaver pelts or anything that does not have an engine. This means no electronics or collectables! Don't be afraid to make a reasonable offer, the worst I could say is I'm not interested! Looking for $7000 OBO.

Interior is in great shape with next to no wear on the seats, and the upholstery is in great shape with no mystery stains or Dorito's hidden in the depths of the seats. The back seat is good for those who are vertically challenged, or punishment of those who are not. All power options, all of which work well. Even has all of the OEM warning labels intact!

Since ownership I have since done:
All new silicone Concept Z intercooler hoses ($550)
Norgren manual boost controller at 12psi, max for stock injector duty cycle($150)
New starter ($230)
New NGK plugs ($120)
New belts, fuel filter, oil filter ($45)
Water pump ($140)
Timing belt ($115)
Turbo/manifold/exhaust gaskets OEM Nissan ($85)
OEM intake gasket set ($125)
Old school JDM blow off valves, which sound fairly cool, if you're into that. ($250)
Apekusera INC 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust with dual wall 4" tips. Deep tone with a good amount of sound. Not fart cannon style. ($500)
Polished throttle bodies, coolant pipes, balance tube (cost me about $20 to do, with 5 hours of time)
6mm spacers up front ($50)
Autometer boost/vac gauge ($125)
NISMO clear corner lights ($85)
SMOKED, not rice tinted tails. Gets rid of the implementry looking Canadian signals($65)
Battery relocated to the trunk ($120)
Phase II PTU ($130)
Alpine speakers and JL tweeters.

It has head-back exhaust with ported OEM exhaust manifolds, ported OEM downpipes, and gutted cats. Sounds better, throttle response it better, and overall performance it better.

All reliability and performance deletes have been done such as:
Carbon canister
EGR
Throttle body coolant bypass
AIV's
PRVR
Eliminated 90% of the useless, leaky vacuum lines
A/C (makes it a LOT easier to work on, plus if it's hot enough for A/C, you're more than likely going to want to t-tops out)

Now, you're probably going "sweet car, if it was manual..." Well, yeah manual transmissions are cool, but the only differences between the 5 speed and auto cars are the lack of clutch and a gear. If you do your research, the automatic equipped Z32's are faster accelerating, do not have syncro issues found in 89-96 transmissions, and can be manually shifted in three seperate modes via transmission solenoid control switch.

It is now currently on white OEM TT wheels that fit the wheel wells much, much better.

The price is OBO, but what is it? I believe forum rules require price in WTS threads.

If ya can't figure out that JDM is RHD, then I don't think you're capable of driving such a car haha. I'll put interior pics up when the seats are back in from its monthly cleaning.


Also, price edited. Completely forgot that it wasn't in the ad when I CTRL + V'd from Kijiji.

I don't automatically equate RHD and JDM. In fact I generally ignore the letters, J, D, and M, when combined like that.

7k is reasonable. If I could afford that (and could physically drive RHD) I'd totally head to Canada lol.

I only combine those letters for a car that's straight off the boat haha. But yes, it's a RHD Japanese car, the only way you could get a 2+2 with snails strapped to the side of it. I think 7k is fair, there's a lot going in that range WITHOUT maintenance work done. The next owner will thank me for tidying up the bay a bit, too.

Buy it and say you did a full RHD swap! Haha. Or bring me up a LHD tt for the same price, we'll trade, and you can sell it down there for like half a million because JDMgay kids, and I can sell the LHD for more!

Wait, since when? Most of the stock TTs I've seen have been 2+2s here. LHD, of course. Is it a Canada thing?

Trade for a minty S12 huh???

There are zero TT's in a 4 seater that came from the factory to any LHD country.

If it's in good shape, I'd love another, but it'd have to square up in cash or another way to the ballpark of my asking price.


I forgot how bastardized the term JDM is down there.

No such thing, look it up. It's been discussed many times on 300zxclub and always ends up with the same answer.

Source: www.wikipedia.org

The twin-turbo 2+2 (four seat model) was never sold in the United States. Buyers in the U.S. who desired a four seat twin-turbo either had to legally import the foreign model, or convert a domestic NA 2+2 model to use a twin-turbo engine. The conversion process can be performed by mechanics familiar with the Z32. The conversion entails switching many parts in the engine bay to the twin-turbo versions as well as making some slight engine bay alterations to fit certain parts such as the radiator.

Oh well, fuck Z32s anyway. Never liked 'em. No room in the engine bay. How in fuck's name do you work on one without pullin' the motor?
Title: Re: FS: 1991 300ZX Twin Turbo (JDM) Located in Carstairs AB, Canada.
Post by: VG30DETT on 01:35:06 AM / 30-Sep-12
That's a matter of your own opinion. If you can't work on one, you shouldn't work on cars in general. They're actually not as bad as people make them out to be, I got my turbo out by itself in under an hour. USDM cars are a bit more of a pain in the ass as they were last minute to be available for LHD markets, so they just stretched shit across the bay to accommodate LHD controls.

Big misconception about the engine bay. No harder to work on than any other car.
  I can see daylight on both sides of my engine bay, and get my hands all the way down.
Spot on about the JDM (use of the word) and also JDM 2+2 TT.

Nice car.

 I dont mind the z32, I almost bought one a while back... Same day my friend and i found the red 86 ca18et. was just up 2 minutes up the road from the z32. It was a kinda burnt orangey brown color.. Looked alright when standing back, but the crappy side skirts and lip that was putr on it was cracked in many places (Woulda removed it all anyways) and the paint was chipped alot so i was scared it would start to peel away. My friend has a nice white one at the shop.

While Schizo is being a bit harsh (surprise surprise) there is some truth to what he is saying. I think it is quite the stretch to say that the z32 bay (especially the TT) has more space to work in then say an s13 bay or z31 bay. Unlike Schizo though I am not going to say "fuck z32's" simply because they have tighter engine bays to deal with for the occasional repair.

Oh, without a doubt a 4 cylinder is going to be easier to work on, no one can deny that. There's a number of things that would be easier removing the engine, but that's mainly exhaust manifolds and the oil pan. It's no worse than VG powered S12's, may even be easier. But like I mentioned, I've removed a metric shit ton from the bay providing room and everything has been simplified. I can pull the intake off in half an hour now and the plenum has been modified for ease of removing the injectors. Like I said, it's all a matter of personal preference or your ability to work on vehicles.


But on another note, thanks for the compliments guys! I've put a lot of time, sweat and blood into it!

Speaking of which, I need to clean some blood off the bumper today lol....

I'm being satirical. "I'm wrong? Ah fuck it, I didn't like it anyway. It's got this fault"

Though there is some truth to that fault. It is difficult to work on.

To someone unfamiliar to them, at first they look overwhelming, but it's really not that bad. If I could pull the engine, do everything listed, and have it running and driving when I was 16, it says something.

It's not that they're complicated, it's that to get in to do the work, you have to pull the engine.

Okay, let me give you some background, Z-owner. My background with cars is mostly 4-bangers, with a couple V8s, an I6, and the SOHC VG. In the cars I've worked on, the engine leaves ample room to work with. The VG30DE occupies a very wide area, owing to having dual overhead camshaft heads, and the TT is even worse, considering the plumbing and turbos. That area all but entirely fills the engine bay in the Z32. Working on it is nowhere near as easy or comfortable as other cars with engines that aren't so massive for their displacement. I tried to work on a Z32 a friend's brother has, but I couldn't get my tiny little hands in there to figure stuff out. I suppose it's different if you're familiar, but it's off-putting if you're not.

I'm gonna firmly suggest you don't take what I say very literally. It's obvious hyperbole to say any work requires pulling the engine. That statement is an exaggeration to stress that the Z32 engine bay has really cramped quarters because its engine is rather wide, because DOHC V-engines are typically very wide.

Ok, I can relate to that a little better.
  This is my first Z, and yes when I first bough it I was like "what the flock". But after getting jipped by a mechanic in just an inspection alone, I decided to bite the bullet. Once you do tear into a Z engine, its not as frightening as it looks.  I keep saying im gonna post pics of my bay, If its ok with the OP ill post one here to show how "not cramped" it is.

Haha, give'r shit! But after that I'd prefer if the bullshitting would be cut to a minimum, only questions, concerns, comments regarding the car directly, not bullshit arguments.

Really? That's the first time I've seen that. Every board I've been on allows it every 2 weeks to assure it hasn't been forgotten. Whooops. I guess to comply with the rules:

Just finished shampooing the entire interior and vacuuming the ENTIRE interior out, seats came out, spare tire, EVERYTHING is minty fresh and then sprinkled coffee grounds onto the carpet over night to absorb some moisture and leave a nice scent. Price drop to $6500 so I can buy a winter beater and swap the s12.
