considering a JDM S130 Z 2seater slicktop manual as a possible next car..
kind of have my heart set on a DR30 coupe, however i've also got a soft spot for Z's and that awesome tuned L-series NA bark..
(here in australia we only got the long wheelbase 4 seaters with the ugly T-bar roof..so i'm talking importing a 2 seat slicktop from japan)
as lovely as S30s are, they are becoming quite expensive for good examples..however, the slightly less popular S130s seem to be comparatively reasonably priced still in japan..
i know nothing about the performance of the S130 though, other than that they come with a L28 (carbed or fuel injected?) and are known to be heavier and slower than the 240z/260z..
so my question is: how much lighter is the 2seater slicktop than the 4seater t-top? what are the performance figures? any ballpark figures for stock, light tuned as well as bored/stroked 3.1+cams ?
are there L-series specialists in australia?
suspension and handling?
comparison vs DR30 skyline?
