Re: A few noble questions

Yea...whatever...it's just a number...lol. I'm more interested in how it works and how I can make that number bigger, ya know?

But I do know that the turbo has 200hp, 205 in the 87-89 turbos. Just honestly don't think about the NA much.

Re: A few noble questions

I really just need to know what super HICAS means? Don't laugh!!! My dream car has always been a 240sx and now I have a 91..........5 speed.....yes I am blonde and I am a girl. Just please answer the question. I have had my 240sx for about 5 years now and the HICAS light came on the other day, but then it went off..........I looked it up in the manual b/c I realized that I had no idea what it was and all it said was see your nissan dealer

there is a 240sx forum but you asked a question that Z owners can answer also because the Z32TT also came with Super HICAS

HICAS = High Capacity Actively Controlled Suspension AKA 4-wheel steering

it basically has the ability to turn your rear wheels up to 3 degrees to the left or right depending on your speed, how much and how fast you turned the wheel, and which way you turned the wheel.

this helps with high cruising steering but most disable it for a standard RWD format.

it really can benefit the driver if the driver can drive with it instead of against it.

the earlier models ran hydraulically off of the power steering pump and later models were all used electronic actuators. yours is hydraulic. to solve your problem, check your power steering level. make sure it is high enough. this is usually the main cause of the HICAS light coming on and off.

***enough with all that BS...blonde girl you say? hi, my name is Jason and i run this particular forum you posted in. j/k but seriously, if you need any other information, ask away or check out the 240sx forum. ***

Re: A few noble questions

lol, if you could measure it with a protractor i'd give you a very large sum of money, as you'd have to do it at whatever speed it kicks in... and going around a corner.... now THat would require some skill

Sorry - misunderstood 1st post then

I was saying from my first post I had a 1972 240 Z at 150 HP and a 1975 260 Z at 139 HP from the factory rating - The question was which was better 240 Z OR 260 Z - Through SX out of the whole mix because someone tried to bring in I was slamming SX - From driving both the 240 Z out preformed the 260 Z by far - SORRY to everyone for the misunderstanding. (P.S. - I have a factory listing of my 1984 300 ZX at 160 HP - Which I hope is wrong - is non turbo)
