I love it, I have a very soft spot in my heart for Z31s!!! What about suspension? I'm dying to find a slicktop.

The suspension is KYB AGX's with 3ZR stage 1 springs.(1" drop 300lb/in front, .5" 325lb/in rear) and strut tower bars from Courtesy Nissan.There's a Z32 slicktop that's been advertised on Craig's List Pittsburgh with a bad engine for $2000.I really had to pry myself away from buying it for the VH engine.

I wonder how much confusion you would cause with the v8 noise and a camaro front bumper...

Finally! The ludicrous task of making my Z a Nissan powered V8 monstrocity is complete!
