I always liked the 300 tt...pretty badass car.

Are the turbos oil cooled only? How did you **** them up?

The rear wheels turn slightly while cornering too, right?

Hoping I don't have to replace any valves or bearings.
Ugh, my buddy has one of those cars. It's quick but goddamn worst ****ing engineering I have ever seen in my life for maintenance and the price you guys will pay for parts is insane.

I wouldn't give a dime for an '08 Type S... you could probably pick up a regular slightly used '09 TL for the same price in the near future. That or an 09 Maxima, sweet car too.
Can you explain why the new TL is so much better? I'm not fond of the looks, plus I'm pretty set against getting a first model year and I'm not sure I can wait long enough for a used '10.

Yeah, they are oil cooled only. I didn't **** them up. I bought it for really cheap knowing I'd have to do work on it. It is a pain in the ass, but I enjoy it. I'm pretty sure the tool that owned it before me tried to race it without knowing how to race and ****ed up the whole drivers side of the engine somehow. Blown turbo and bad compression on every cylinder on the drivers side. He was a ****ing tool.

Not all of them have the 4 wheel steering, this one does. Has a giant leak in the power steering system so I'm going to have to work on that as well. The body, interior, transmission, and block are all solid though and the 300zx is getting to be hard to find. Plus, its not costing me anything to keep it other than parts, which aren't too bad as long as you don't have to pay for labor.

I was originally going to have somebody do the work for me, but i actually got turned down by about 6 garages before I found one that would even give me an estimate. As soon as the words "Nissan 300zx" came out of my mouth they'd hang up the phone/give me the name of a different garage who might possibly have taken the job.

Well good luck man, that sounds like a fun project. Are the transmissions pretty solid on those?

Maybe it got starved of oil somehow? They probably make some sort of oil pan baffling if those cars are prone to it. Either way, nice car man, me likey.


I drove a co-worker's new 2000 v6 mustang today. I've never felt a clutch that engages so ****ing high. There's about a foot and a half of travel before a 1.5 inch catch area, wtf is that? There shifter was a sloppy piece of ****, it felt like it had 4 different spots for neutral. Also, he bought it without opening the hood because he didn't know there was no hood latch

anyway, here's my car. not the best day for a picture, plus the car was dirty as hell when i took this shot. (that's the best part about silver cars. even when they're dirty, they still look pretty good)

Thinking about buying a 2008 TL type S when they start showing up on the used market (still a little early). It's really too bad they ruined the TL in the new model years.
I ****ing love mine, though I know what you mean about the steering.

How well do you like the RX8? Have you had many problems with the car (I've heard they're prone to mechanical problems)?
