How reliable are nissan 300zx TT's

Post by zonemanrx7 on Tue Jun 26, 2012 7:17 pm

Hey guys, I want to get a fun daily to drive. I have a new job and I put about 100 miles a day. I'm trying to convince my dad to co-sign so I can buy this beautiful 1990 300zx TT for 7k. But my dad says blah blah blah BMW!! FTW!!! Get a M3/M5 and how BMW's are great or some nasty newer type of car. I don;t want a BMW because there more $$ to maintain and the mods for the cars are too expensive and not even big mods just like exhaust and what not So does any 1 know how reliable they are? and here's the mods tell me if its even worth it. I did the KBB on it and it came out to be about 8k for the condition that its in IF its really in that condition.

I have a 1990 Nissan 300zx (Z32) Twin Turbo. It runs good, drives good. Transmission feels smooth. Needs nothing but a good owner. I am moving soon and unfortunately have to sell her.

-Title in hand
-180k on the body
-40-50k on the motor (JDM VG30DETT) The motor was swapped professionally by RichZtech in New York.
-Pearl White
-Black leather interior (MINT)
-Koyo radiator
-Z1 Silicone Intercooler Hoses
-Z1 Clutch and flywheel
-Z1 Silicone Upper Radiator Hose
-Z1 Aluminum Lower Radiator Hose
-HKS Catback Exhaust
-Gutted Cats
-Hicas Eliminator Bar
-Mishimoto Thermostat
-Jspec Front Bumper
-HKS Electronic Boost Controller
-Fresh OEM Water Pump
-EGR Deleted
-Autometer Wideband
-Autometer boost and oil pressure gauge
-Lowered on Eibach springs
-Koni Struts

Frame is CLEAN no rot or rust.

yeah, as much as I love these cars and as a former owner... They are really problemmatic... you have double the fail rate for the turbo's and it looks like it was owned by a stoner kid...

I'd pick it up for 3K as a project car if it ran... but not 8 for a daily... Get your FC3 running...
