    You can't run larger turbo housings in a Z32 cause it'll hit the strut towers. The vacuum hoses are a nightmare. Typical nissan brittle electrical clips. Injector connectors that don't always stay connected. Let's not forget HICAS.

    I love them though. Would never own one or work on one.

    in terms of Zs in the past 20+ years, from best to worst:
    1. 370z
    2. 300zx
    3. 350z
    Oh, I dun know about that. All you do on a Z is drop the motor. Takes about 3hr. Then you can get to every thing. It's that simple.
    Oh and BTW, I have a set of inj connectors with terminals if any one needs them. I let them go cheap! Such s deal I will give you.
    That's not a Typo, I just can't spell no so well.

    The decals are pretty "pumped up" for a street rig, but it sure looks good on the track.

    How many times did you have to fill your gas tank this weekend?

    I'm okay with the way it looks, but they need engineers that actually drive sports/race cars. I can't get over all the design flaws for a so called sports car.

Buttonwillow i can go a couple sessions then i top off. they is a shop that designed a pump/baffle kit that wont require tank removal to install. they tested it on track with sticky tires at 1/4 tank with no issues. i plan to buy it.

    This is turning out to be a pretty funny thread. We have drivers who like EVO's calling the 370 hideous. LOL! Come on, the 370 is a good looking car. I think anyone who likes RWD cars will like the classic coupe style of the 370. I'm actually a little surprised Richard doesn't like it at all.

    It's not that I "don't like it at all." Dynamically, as to performance and handling, the 370Z is clearly a better car than the 350Z. The OP question was about styling. The wackball headlights and tail lights of the 370Z, its big mouth grille, and the not-well-thought-out 370Z C-pillar that is supposed to evoke the 240Z but doesn't, make the 350Z a better looking car than the 370Z. That's all I was talking about.

    But if you look at the new Infinity TV advertisement (G25 in top if it all) you may laugh your ass out.But that is what the modern auto industry has become,all of it -Kia has a paddle shifters and a BMW is not the drivers car anymore

    I agree with you 100% on that. I think the 370 could be a great looking car, but it seems that is was rushed or something. Maybe the next one will pull it all together.

    I love the look of both of them, as long as we are talking about the coupe and not the verts. because those are just plain ugly. I love the roof line of the 350z more than the 370z but I like how the 370 has wider looking fenders front and rear. There is a reason people sometimes mistake the Z for being a Porsche its because it is a good looking car. lets ask the S2k guys what their cars get mistaken for sometimes lol...
