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.
I keep my car cleaner then my room
Fuck you then, I'll take my movies, box of chocolates, bottle of wine and chloroform somewhere else.
Adding an SSD to that is kinda like strapping a 3 inch stainless HKS exhaust on a geo metro.

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.

Once again, no. I hate saying shit like this, but I should know what I'm talking about considering I have built one and owned 3 in the last year.

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.

It won't let me post in market place for some reason, but I'm on the facebook groups so I don't go on the forum much at all. I've posted more here in the last week than I have in 2 years on 3zxc.

just a lil heads up you can't bump your thread just for the sake of bumping the only bumping allowed is if you change some info or if your answering a question pertaining to your sale ad otherwise they will close your thread...
