Nice car.  I saw that listed on Kijiji.

I am a long time Z owner, and I just purchased a low mileage 1981 zxt.  This makes Z number 18 for me.

The car was in NL and I was in ON.  2400km and a 16hr ferry ride to get the car home.

Wow! That's one heck of a trip!

New to the S130. Sorry, no pics yet. Post soon. Just got an 81 280ZX smooth top 2+2 with 79K on the clock. Not my favorite Z but..got it cheap.

Also got an option of a donor car with an SR20DET motor w/Garrett T, 5-speed, 5-lug spindles/ brakes and coilovers from a 300Z.

 

So...anyone done S13 suspension conversion on an 81 2+2?

Any gotchas on the SR20DET and Tranny swap?

Are you talking about just the coilover conversion or a full suspension swap?

 

The full swap has some involved and I think the question is if it's worth it. Sure the S130 rear suspension is not the best design but you can still make them handle OK (BMW E30 has a similar design and seem to be a popular race car)

 

I kept the S130 suspension and put my resources into tires and aftermarket suspension components. 

 

Are you saying that the 300Z components somehow have been adopted to work in 280zx?
