Here's mine....... '82 280ZX. She's got a little rust (let's call it weight reduction) but runs and drives good.

It's an L28E (2.8l Inline 6), 5spd, t top car, with the voice warning system. Yes, that's right, it TALKS!!! It's not fast for a sportscar, but it's enough to get my blood flowin (for now....).

I'm hoping to replace the floor pans this summer (seriously, there's a LOT of rot). I still can't decide what to do for a powerplant, I leaned toward a V8 for a while but I'll probably end up going with a turbo motor (L28ET) for ease of swap. Everything bolts up, and I don't have to even change the transmission. If I decide I don't need it to be too fast I might to DIESEL!

Turbo diesel might be interesting.

Here's my new ride. When I do get another car, it will more than likely be a early 70's Chevelle. As of lately, I haven't had the time to even think about getting another sports car. I traded in the Trailblazer for the 4Runner since it will be MUCH better suited for off roading and the mountains. This thing is 10 times the truck the TB was in every way.

Are you talking "Powerstroke", "Cummings TD", "Duramax" ??? Or something all together different?

Any of those would be WAY too heavy (a Cummins 6BT is over 1000lbs) and wouldn't come near fitting. This is something completely different.

My current engine is a 2.8l inline 6 called the L28E. Nissan put a 2.8l inline 6 called the LD28 in a few Maximas in the early 80s. No electronics needed, just a fuel cut to shut it off. It's low on HP / TQ in stock form though. From what I understand, I can adapt a turbo exhaust manifold off an L28ET to fit the LD28 just by redrilling a couple of bolt holes. Turn the fuel up and I figure I could get 200hp out of it at 40mpg.

This diesel will turn 5000rpms, peak power is around 4600. It's not just a low revver like a truck diesel.

And the best part is...

It will BOLT RIGHT UP to my motor mounts AND transmission.


I'm not sure whether I want to put it in the current car or look for one with less rust though. The underbody rot turned out to be a lot worse than I previously thought. I can get a floor pan kit for $400, so I've got to do some thinking....
