    My Datsun 240Z

    Thread Starter: bartsscooterservice

    Hello, My name is Bart, and I've been on this forum before in the past, when I had a 73 240Z. That project never made it to much rust, and I sold it for parts. It's been quiet for a while,and personally I kept thinking of owning another 240Z in the future, but good ones are expensive here in The...

    [2014] What did you do to/with your Z today?

    Thread Starter: Arne

    Rather than let these threads go on forever as they do in some other forums, I thought I'd start new ones for separate generations for the New Year. Use these threads for short, Twitter-like posts, things that may not be worth their own thread. Since only the S30 threads got any use over the...

    Thread Starter: ksbeta

    So having a numbers-matching Series-1 car is great. Lightweight, there's a limited number of them, and it's plenty quick as it is. But then you all start chiming in about suspension modifications, transmission and differential swaps, motor modifications, and all order of wild sounding things...

    Fuel Injection on Z Cars are they compatible with 123Ignition

    Thread Starter: 123ignitionusa

    Can anyone inform me about the fuel injection systems on the 260 and 280 Z cars? Really only two questions. 1) Do they act independently of the ignition system? 2)or Do they depend on an electrical trigger signal from the distributor? 123Ignitions will work with mechanical injection...
