Here's the performance part of the car. Aside from the test pipe put in to delete the cat and the custom intake, everything was stock. If I didn't ha... Show moreve my Camaro, I would have sunk all of my money into this instead of it, but the Chevy just has so much more potential its hard not to.
Soon after I got the car I replaced the battery and put on new battery cables as you can see. They cleaned up the engine bay a lot from how it looked before. I also installed new NGK spark plugs and put in some high-performance Mobil 1 oil with a Lucas Oil additive.
This is the intake I put under the hood. It used an APC filter from Advance attached directly to the MAS in the open gap left from the A/C being taken out. It just so happens that the original hole from the stock intake is right in front of it, and perhaps at speed helps to make a "ram-air" effect. Show Less
This was my 1983 Datsun 280ZX 2 2 that I recently SOLD. It was my first car, being 16 when I got it. Most of the car stayed factory since I got my Camaro! It... Show more was a good car to learn things on, and it sparked my interest in cars.
The previous owner put on the 14 inch ICW rims with Futura rubber out back and Firestone meat up front, as well as a test pipe deleting the catalytic converter, lowering springs, and had the windows tinted. Inside they put in a Blaupunkt head unit. I myself cleaned it up a lot and put in a set of Redline Racing pedals. I also put on an APC cheapo air filter directly bolted to my MAF sensor where I had room from the air conditioning being taken out by the previous owner.
This is a good picture of the ICW Racing rims the previous owner put on.
This is the chrome tip I bought from Advance. Like my intake, it was just a cheap part I bought to dress up the Z. It looked nice and just ever so slightly changed the exhaust note, but it was only noticeable at idle. It's only for looks, and in my opinion, it did indeed look good.
