is it turbo??? i wouldnt run oil that thick in my turbo....
you know that the bearings in there are the tight spec ones that are in need of the thinner oil right just use good oil not thick and your results should be pleasing you also loose a small amount of horse from thicker oil too
but glad to see you fixed your problem

Re: 1986 300 Zx specs needed

Just because I used thicker oil doesn't mean my engine has to work any harder to be properly lubricated , It's more of a wear and tear that caused the thinner oils to just kinda flow instead of act like molasis also putting in a stabalizer helped it a lot. Ever since changing out my plugs , eliminated my valve cover -> to turbo hose to preheat the air going into the manifold , changed plugs , changed oil and threw on some silicone hoses , It's been doing better than when I first test drove it. Ordering some cool mods for the interior such as -> Nismo shift knob , Shift boot , stea covers , 4 point harness , Custam making a harness bar , harness pads and a steering wheel. Here in about two weeks , I shoul dhave the interior where I want it and start to dig into the engine again.

Re: 1986 300 Zx specs needed

actually the heavier oil does require more to turn allthough it might not seem so it does its thicker good excample with molasses slide a spoon across mollases then across some vegtable oil the vegy oil is easier to slide it isnt it (dont use it eags use the rounded side ) it requires more forse with the mollases doesnt it sweet mods to do i got an old nismo shift nob its leather pretty phatty but good int. mods but get some seats too but sweet at any rate sounds tight

Re: 1986 300 Zx specs needed

I threw on a complete silicone hose kit , got rid of all that old rubber shit that likes to erode away. Also got some gold terminals both + and - seems to give it about.35 more volts into the line than using standard lead terminals. I also want to convert to a electrical fan , Can someone give me a heads up on how / which product , to do this / Is best to use. I'd appreciate it.

i think http://www.amzperformance.com is going to start supplying Z31 Fluydine fans for the Z31 but i am sure it will still take some customizing to make it work.

where did you buy your silicone hoses from???

Re: 1986 300 Zx specs needed

Ahh , No pep boys eh that sucks. I just finished my body repair today and the internal rubberizing , Went through 5 cans of spray style , they weighed on the scale only 12.6 pounds for all of them so I have ripped out all internals , ditched the passanger seat and coated all the metal in rubber =D I did this mostly because the bitch leaks in the seals and I don't want future damage from the inside.
