    I haven't used ramps since I bought a house with a garage and concrete floor. We used to use ramps when I lived with my parents on the gravel floor of their carport. Personally, I don't trust them....

    The shorter filter is actually for the later cars. I think it is required on the S130 to clear some accessory. I have used the short filter with no issues.

    I have seen this system and I am tempted to try it, but I don't know anything about this company, and have no references good, or bad. It is just something that I have seen:

    I don't see any mention of the brake hoses. Have they been replaced? Old hoses get soft and swell when the hydrauilc pressure rises during braking.

    I had a problem with hoses on my car. I had...

    I have had a similar thought, however I have come to the conclusion that adding horsepower to a stock Z will cause problems. The stock brakes are fine for normal driving, or even some forms of...

    The unavailability of 14" tires is why I went with the ZX turbo 4 spoke wheels. The Libre wheels are pretty, but what good does that do if the only source of tires is Coker?

    My apologizes to everyone, it was Blue who posted photos showing the exhaust valve interference with big valves to the stock L24 block. I don't know how I got so confused.

    It looks to me like the exhaust valves are oversized also. Those are the ones that hit the block on an L24.

    I have big intake valves with stock exhaust valves on my engine, and they didn't cause...

    I test drove an Altima a couple of years ago, when they first brought out their "NASA inspired seats." Admittedly it was a 4 cylinder model, but to be polite... I wasn't impressed.

    I am using a stock distributor for a 79 ZX and it works great. You are already bumping the voltage up dramatically from the points system, so the "performance" coils are not necessary.
