Time to jump ships!!

Postby bnicolas » Sat Jul 25, 2015 6:41 pm

building me a nissan 300zx N/A 2+2 5speed

Hi guys bought a 93 sapphire blue 2+2 5 speed n/a last thursday
buena park location yanked out the engine right away
bought this for my wife but i have a feeling she doesnt like it cause its manual told her that im going to teach her but she rather drive her toyota highlander lol!!!
i would really like to swap an rb26 but im broke at the moment maybe next year so im just gonna do a simple rebuild for now

Good luck, pal. Seems like it's gonna be fun.
