I owned an 80 280zx back in 82-84. Sold it when the family started arriving. Got the Z bug again in 2001 and bought my current 81 280zxt. Same silver over blue color as my first, but this one has t-tops and its a turbo!! I've slowly modified her from auto to 5-speed swap the first year to an intercooler last summer. Now I need to address the rust issues.

I use generic coils the are in the 300 range and stiff as hell!
On the 40 tires and no rubber in the front strut assembly to be found all i can say from a little test ride ..
it is blood pissing stiff!
Given the struts are on their heaviest setting, also i use msa sway bars and adjustable end links ( one poly rubber in there)



do you happen to have a site mate to where you got them? easy install?

SGT of Marines, and damn proud of it!

Nothing special, just a wrecked 1983 black, t-top, non turbo with "cold air intake" 60mm tb, and a muffler shop special 2.5" cat back with a leaky head gasket. Oh and about 100lbs taken out of her... that helps.

smaller displacement but the same external dimensions as a 350. I haven't got to drive the car too much, but it seems to have a fair amount of bottom end torque.

KTM-EXC - Is that just a BRE spoiler for the 240Z installed on a 280ZX or is it modified somehow?

I've had my '83 for a little ove ten years now. T-top, 5 spd, NA coupe. I finally started really tearing into it at 274k miles. As she sits now:

Flat top pistons with N42 head.
Balanced internals, ARP Studs and Rod bolts.
Z31 ECU with Nistune. (Still wiring)

Much more stuff, but I'm too lazy at the moment.

I think I'm in love KTM! Very tastefully done! I like the blacked out lighting and the drop- just makes the dark colored car look even more sleek. What are the window stickers? I'd buy a hybrid z sticker if it wasn't 2 square feet in size!

Looks good, I think if it was lowered a little it would be one nice looking car.
