300zx vs 96 v6 LOL

yeah i was driving home and this 300zx (non turbo) cuts me off.. im like errite u sooo i leave it and let hiim drive off.. then this guy slows down.. i mean we're going 40 on a 55 zone here.. so i switch lanes and hit the stop light.. he pulls up to it...so im like sh*T... hahaha light turns green im like what the hey.. *punch* soo first gear we're about even.. then he shifts to 2nd.. and he pulls away from my front bumper.. as we ended the climb of second gear he is a car and a half away...third.. i give up ahhaha.. i know it was prolly foolish to go up against a car like that.. but hey.. i figured since he was low of the line... maybe i can outshine him... lol... maybe if i had a 99 v6 stick.. wat do u guys think?

Re: 300zx vs 96 v6 LOL

the 90-96 z32's are pretty quick for only being a 3.2. when my buddy had one we raced from a stop(i was in the gst). he outlaunched me, and it took me till the end of 3rd to match and start pulling on him.

i like them, if i ever find a 300zx tt in decent shape for a decent price(theyre still in the 10-15k range, they held their value very good) id prolly pick it up. the t-tops are sweet and the dash looks something out of a sci fi movie, and the stock exhaust note is 95% close to the exhaust note on a stock 99-04 GT, that was the first thing i noticed with my buddies, "wow dude, sounds almost like a stang". too bad his was too ****ed up to even be kept long, he got the car as a straight trade for his ****ed up talon, drove the 300zx, then traded that straight over for a 88 crx.

i do, and craigslist does, and theyre expensive.

shift kit, convertor and 4.1's would definately make an improvement. aslo if you dont have a good intake and exhaust that would help. then some sort of tuner will make a big difference in helping all of those above mods work to their potential.

I had 4.10s, torque converter and shift kit in my 98 auto. I was cutting 1.8 60's all day long. (I also had an 8.8 with slicks too when I used nitrous off the line). Those mods will wake your car up from down low, but the 4.10s will hurt your top end (above 80mph)

17 inch rims are prob your best bet, the amount of weight you save between 18 inch and 17 inch is enough to label them performance, and 18's appearance.

Shiftkits I wouldn't even bother with. If your mechanically inclined enough to install your own then your mechanically inclined enough to do the Jerry Mod. It is cheaper and apparently a little better. www.tccoa.com is the link for it. Goto their techs and look in the tranny section for JMod.

If you want to buy a shift kit anyway then i would go with B&M or Transgo. I think Hayden makes one too but that isnt a definite. You can get them from A&A, Jegs, Ebay, and some mustang sites around. Look for anything for a 4r70w or AODE trannys.
