  3. Re: not 300hp

  5. In 96 300s did not have 300hp. Due to emissions the car was linited to around 285hp. Its funny how enissions always have to mess up performance of nissans (SKYLINES)

  12. Re: not 300hp

    That purple 300z so called TT are you from the san diego area? and have these ugly ass mr-2 air induction scoops on both side? Your shit ant no turbo man i popped that hood one time 2 years ago when you where getting your paint job and saw N/A....HA HA HAHA
     
  13. Re: not 300hp

    "they never made a nissan production car with variable valve timing"

    WHAT!!!??

    First of all, the 300ZX had variable valve timing, so does the new Altima and the Maxima has for several years.

    And who said the 1996 300ZX didn't have 300hp? I think you have mistaken it for the JDM Fairlady Z Z32... that only had 280hp

    1996 TT with Automatic only didn't have variable valve timing. The horsepower value was lowered then to 280.
     
  14. Re: not 300hp

    Nissan is never behind on technology, they just don't bloat it like other companies. Did you know that old school Maxima's (body style before the new ones) have variable length intake runners?
     
  15. Re: not 300hp

    Hey yall are smart, so you should no that the porjected hp of any car is a industry standerd, its a benchmark, one 300z tt may have 310 while another 295 its not like they dyno test ever single one as it rolls off the assembly line.

  17. Re: not 300hp

    There is a nissan dealer close to my house that had a brand new 96' 300zx with Twin Turbo for sale. It had 18 miles on it. So i asked how much horsepower it had and they said 300. Then i said that i though they lowered it to 280 in 96'. They said only on the automatics. The really weird thing was they were asking $55,000 for the car. a little pricey
     
  18. Re: not 300hp

    does any one know where i can get a 300zx body kit with a scoop on the side like this one?
     
  19. Re: not 300hp

    jascarz: that is probably a one of a kind custom job, ive never seen any body kit like that before<!-- Signature -->

    The 300zx Turbo is limited at 276HP officially , this isn't due to technical reasons , but this is due to the japanese fiscal system which is very restrictive for cars which develop 276+ HP.

    That's the reason why for exemple the engine of the NSX has never been improved.

    But if you measure off the power , it's always more than said by the car maker , everybody knows that a Supra makes about 330 HP for example.
     
  21. Re: not 300hp

    THE 300ZTT HAD A VALVE TIMING SYSTEM IN 1990 IN AMERICA BEFORE HONDA EVER INTRODUCED THEIR VTEC IN AMERICA LATER THAT YEAR IN THE ACURA NSX. NISSAN HAS USED A VALVE TIMING SYSTEM IN THEIR CARS BEFORE HONDA EVER DID. IT WAS STANDARD IN THE SENTRAS SINCE 1991 NOT LIKE CHEEP CRAPPY HONDA THAT USED IT IN THE CIVIC ONLY AS AN OPTION. NISSAN'S TECHNOLOGY HAS ALYAYS LEAD THE WAY JUST BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT IT DON'T ASSUME IT'S NOT THERE. AND THESE SPECS ON THIS WEB PAGE ARE INCORRECT FOR THE 300ZTT IT IS FASTER THAN THAT.IN 1993 WHICH WAS THE FASTEST YEAR FOR THE Z THE SPECS WERE 0-60 5.2 AND QUARTER WAS 13.9 STOCK. HOW DO I KNOW BECAUSE I USED TO WORK FOR NISSAN.

    SUCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  23. Re: not 300hp

    My bro-in-law has one of these and has had a lot of problems with it. I do like the Z's but I think they just can't compare to the possibilities of a bigger engine.<!-- Signature -->
     
  24. Re: not 300hp

    dude owning a car in japan sucks ass, first off-think taxes. you pay for like 10 of you car in the first year!, then the japanese bastards say you have to have a gay 276hp max. whats with that?<!-- Signature -->
     
  25. Re: not 300hp

    ok, u cant limit the horsepower of a car, its not possible, engines dont produce power, they produce torque, power is merely a useful byproduct of producing torque every so many seconds (rpm)

    so no car can be limited to 276hp, u can limit its top speed by matching engine revs to gear ratios, then setting the ECU to stop extra fuel going in2 the engine at that given speed, no matter how much the accelerator pedal is pressed, but power doesnt work like that

    u can limit the turbo boost with a pop-off valve, or limit the amount of air going in2 the engine with an inlet restrictor, both of these methods r used on racecars, but i cant say ive ever heard of a road car use them

    therefore the reason japanese cars have 'about' 280hp is because thats how much hp theyve been designed to produce, they r NOT physically limited to that, which is y if u dyno test an R34 GTR or a 22B-STi, the reading will be 320+ for the nissan and about 300 for the Scooby, at the flywheel of course

    if the 300ZX is so damned good, what with all this technology nissan apparently throws at it, y does it only produce 39.6kgm of torque (latest japanese spec. TT) as opposed to 46.0kgm for the supra (latest japanese spec. TT)???....theyre both 3000cc, 6cyl, TT

    so which 3000cc, 6cyl, TT engine is not as good as the 300ZXs???....and y?
