    Unleaded Fuel

    Hi I am running an 87 Z31 turbo.:Z31: Does anyone know if you can put normal unleaded in it instead of the high octane stuff? Also, what is the capacity of the fuel tank?? My gauge is probably wrong as when it is begging for a drink it only takes about 40 litres and i had heard a rumour...

    K&N filter to a Z31?

    Hi Mr F Is it possible to upgrade the ECU to compliment the filtercharger kit:confused: I also heard a rumour that changing the fuel pump to a high pressure one, maybe from a Z32, will have considerable effect on the performance. I would appreciate your advice on this as i am in the final...

    loss of acceleration

    Bodywork Hi "Thatgirl". Welcome to the Z Club. I have just sent my Z31 off for some tlc to the bodywork, a few rust spots, arches, dents and respray the bonnet. I have been quoted £350 - £400 for the lot. A grand seems a bit steep. When mine comes back i will let you know how it looks...

    oil pressure sender??

    Oil Pressure Gauge Hi Guys Just read Jez's posting about a dodgy sender which got me a bit worried. My gauge is very slow off the mark and also slow changing with engine revs etc. When i start the car it eventually gets to between 30 and 60 but on a run it very slowly drops to just below...

    Hi Jez You mentioned in one of your messages that the boost on the Z31 is easy to increase!! How would i go about doing this? I will eventually upgrade the turbo but some extra boost would be great :D :D :D until i can afford a T4:( . Would appreciate some pointers. Cheers Carl

    I am fairly new to the Z scene following the purchase of my Z31 turbo. The car is great requiring only superficial work to bring it back to "like new". Not sure if i want to do any mods to the car as she looks stunning without. I may do some bits under the bonnet and would be grateful of...
