I just have 1 question....What kind of oil do you use? That's a ton of miles, Chief. Welcome aboard. I hear the 350 crew is looking for a moderator, so you could be the next one. Hopefully that doesn't scare you away. You guys (350 owners) are pretty scarse. I have to say, you're off to a bad start though. You were involved with the HICAS and BOSE setups?!? That's 2 strikes against you already. J/K. I got rid of the BOSE a long time ago, and HICAS isn't that bad, so no hard feelings. As you will quickly see, we're not like other Z forums. Go ahead and ask anything. you can pretty much say anything you want also. As you can see by my title, I enjoy sarcasm, so if/when you're the target, don't take offense. It's all in good fun.

Cheers
'91

412K on the original turbos!?!
I don't mean to call you a liar, but I don't believe it! What you're claiming is that your original stock turbos lasted over 4 times what is the norm! Unbelievable.

Welcome aboard otherwise!

He never said it still boosts nicely or that he never rebuilt the turbos or replaced them. It could be very true, especially for someone who knows the car as well as someone who helped design it. Justin, that's pretty sweet that you were invovled in designing stuff for my car. Personally, I kind of like Hicas for normal road driving. No comment on Bose...it's almost all the way gone.

And 91, I don't mean to break your heart, but he didn't mention owning a 350.

Oh, cut me some slack, I had made an assumption since I 1st saw this under the Z33 forum. I later saw it under every forum, hence the deja vu I spoke of. Rizz probably already scared the guy off though by questioning his mileage achievements. 412k is a frggin' eternity. I still want to know what oil he uses. Anything is possible with the proper maintenance. I just hope he didn't have any say with the length of the wires in the car. Whenever you need to do anything with the wiring, it seems like it's about 3-4 inches short of what would be ideal to work with. Take for example, the wiring for the stereo. If you don't have 8 elbows and 4 wrists, it's almost impossible to do any work back in there.

Naw, he'll be back...he seemed down. He can probably answer your questions as to why. And I agree, I think it's very possible to have a z with that many miles.

that is right on the money...when i was wiring my radiator to the ignition, i had to use those wire strippers that don't cut wire, they just push the insulation out of the way..the wires seem too tight

I've never even heard of a Wix filter! And good job on taking such good care of your Z.

I do believe the Wix brand is in the Oil Filter comparison. One of the comparisons at least. Interesting history. Is that for the TT or the 280?

I can guarantee that comes as no surprise to anyone.

Justun-
Good info on the oil and the filters. Glad to hear you didn't work with the Z32 wiring; otherwise, UPS may have been delivering a special "ticking" box to you.

I know this is jumping on an old thread, Wix is all we used on our trucks and equipment when we still ran the Tankers. Still use a 2-quart size on my old 78' blazer. Chev big block 366 truck engines called for the same filter that fit the small block 400 only more capacity. They're available in Arkansas too.
