Hey! I didnt know where to look for this on here and I did a search and could not find it. I found a '88 300zx that is in fair condition. Enough for us to play with. But it said it had a knocking rod? No clue what that is. Someone please inform me! Thanks kids!

Tee hee kids;) Your car is older than you too. So don't be going on and spouting like that;)

Naw just playin, BUT

Are you sure he said knocking rod? If that's so, a major rebulid is in order. Now if it's ticking lifters that's pretty normal.

Yea. My car is older than me. Im learning. Im only 17 and female. So I think Im doing pretty well for myself. :) But yea...he said knocking rod. Thanks for the info. Thats prolly why he only wanted 800 for it. But me and a friend thought itd be an awesome fix up. I have a 83 280zx that I am in love with! I have a pic of it on here somewhere that I need to find. Its in wonderful condition with only

Thanks again

Big V8s with gobs of power. Get a ride in one and your prospective will change in a heart beat. Though I would rather have an SBC 260 or 280.

Take a ride in my Z, and your perspective will change. I've left a lot of V8s in my mirrors at the track. Including a 280 with an SBC. ;)

EDIT: Sorry JamesZ, thought I was talking to Todd for a minute. Nevermind. ;)

If I had a SBC in a Z (first it would be a 280) it would HAVE to be supercharged..

Line up next to my Z and ummmm oh wait line up to it when it runs again. Of course it is still going to be a VG30ET.

I'd like to pick up a slicktop and drop an LS1 with a T56 in it.

Well, you know how I feel about cross swapping. Remember that huge fight I had with wtf was his name.......

Yeah we do that sometimes. For the 280ZX I would just suggest an L28ET swap. For the Z31 if your not worried about power another VG30E can be had very cheap, and a VG30ET swap wouldn't cost much more.
