I got it in the fall of '06. It had 119k miles on it when I bought it, now it's around 150k. I store that pig every winter too. :yup:
I dont' have the time to work on it's couple of issues, so it's in the shop currently. There was this weird knocking sound in the front end, been there for a while now, since last spring. I checked a lot of things and I couldn't figure it out for the life of me. I replaced the balljoints, tie rods, upper strut bearing mounts, control arm bushings, sway bar end links, a bunch of stuff. Still knocked around. Sounds drove me completely insane. Took it in finally a couple weeks ago. Turns out there's two motor mounts and two tranny mounts, and all 4 were broken......!!!
The knocking around in the front end I kept hearing was the engine resting on the exhaust. If the exhaust fell out for any reason the engine would have gone with it! :eek2:
Kinda glad that's being taken care of. Makes sense I couldn't find the issue though, that motor is pretty damn heavy, getting that knocking sound to occur at stand stil while under the car would have been impossible.
Jason, nice ride. My first car was Z24, bought a 1990 in 92. I paid 8000 cash for it and it had 42500 km on it. I was so proud of that car. I spent an obscene amount on a custom competition stereo system a couple of years later. I had very few problems with the car up until 2007 when I had heating issues and burning anti-freeze, head gasket, and I did not fix the car. I went to move the car several months ago and it took some cranking and then fired right up. I can drive the car 6 miles at time as that is how long it takes the car to heat. Car has around 265,000 km on it. Do you need a KN air filter for yours. You can have mine.
