      Engine is on the stand. Pulled the front pulley and cover. I will pull the head fully assembled with the intake manifold and sell it complete. Not sure if I will have the headers blasted and polished or ceramic coated.

      Wow! You learned me my new thing for the day. Didn't realize the Z31 had been sold in the home market with an RB underhood.

      I had no idea either. But it will make this project that much more doable and period correct. With a final goal displacement of 2.8xL and the fact that the car was available in Japan as a 200ZR with the RB20, I think I will need a custom 280ZR logo.

      Sounds like an awesome project... I love Z's (hence my username)... I've had a '78 280Z and an '85 Turbo Z31. Just curious... why are you specifically after the non-turbo version? I agree with ya that the 84-86 are the better looking ones... '86 being my favorite, since you get the flared fenders but the earlier tail lights and more angular nose, and no bumper tits.

      Unless it's a GS, the turbo cars seem to have come with the digital dash and the 4 post steering wheel. Most got leather it seems as well. These are all things I do not want. And since my engine won't be turbo, I really don't want it to say turbo on the back panel. All of these things could be swapped but ideally, I want to find the right base car.

      I agree a non turbo, non digital dash & no leather seats is a better choice for your project

      Never realized the RB engine came in these cars in ROW markets.

      Gotcha, makes sense... and swapping an NA car to 5 lug would be easier than swapping all the NA stuff to the Turbo. A slick top would be the badass for this build too.

      About ready to pull the head. Cam lobes look practically new.

      Why is a 1 bank header always referred to as headers in the JDM community? Genuinely curious, because in the V/flat engine community I've always heard of 1 bank being referred to as a passenger/driver header and a package of both being referred to as headers, not 1 bank being referred to as plurals.

      The factory Z31 200ZR parts are kind of rare. Specifically the thing you need to get this swap done is the oil pan. The 200ZR has a rear sump pan unique to that car.

      IIRC there's an aftermarket option out there because guys who want to swap an RB into an S30 or S130 also need a rear sump pan. They can use the 200ZR pan but there just aren't many out there in the wild.

      It’s on the wrong coast but....

      I can’t tell if it has a digital dash or not, but I can see the overall appeal.

      Sweeeet, my first car was an 84 NA. Stupid slow, but I loved it. This looks like it'll be a super fun swap

      I was seriously considering a slick top I found that had been for sale for a long time. I asked the guy what his bottom line was and he gave me a number $100 less than asking. Then he proceeded to tell me how if it doesnt sell soon, he will take it to Mecum so he can get near double the asking price...

      Got the car. I actually found this one about 8 months ago but the price was $8600 so I didn't even bother calling. 3 days ago, in my daily searches, I saw that the price dropped to $6800. I offered $6250 and it's mine. Should arrive today or tomorrow.

      1986 Nissan 300zx non turbo auto. It's the base model so analogue gauges, 3 spoke steering wheel with no controls, manual HVAC controls, manual seats etc. Should be the lightest T top car to start with. 56k miles and never registered to an individual ever. It went between a few dealers and was always serviced by Nissan. Looks to be super clean and the ideal base vehicle for my project. Who knows, I may even decide to keep the color..

      I am going to try and use the lower portion of the 87-89 front bumper but keep the upper with the sharper headlight cutouts. I also like the dual lens of the early cars over the late single with rounded cutouts. I am obviously a fan of the earlier tail lights but want to also install the later 87-89 bumper after shaving the over riders and license plate cutout. Lastly, 87-89 rockers which I think look better than any aftermarket stuff I have found in Japan. I am looking for an ideal front and rear valence from Japanese auctions and would consider keeping the stock bumper if I can find a reasonably priced Kaminari front valence like this one.

      http://www.speedhunters.com/2015/10/...an-matsuri-11/

      This white car is my ultimate inspiration so far. Also, a good comparison shot of the two different style rears.
