Default saturn still my cruiser

had the 300ZX for a bit now and still love it. Rear wheel drive is unbeatable! Its fast as all hell. At stage 3 which is roughly 400hp at the crank. Still need my saturn though. The Z is lowered with a new bumper so I have to go over all bumps sideways. It has to idle for about 2-3 minutes when I start it to let the Oil pressure drop. After running it hard it has to be left running for 2-3 minutes using the turbo timer to let the oil cool down. The ION on the other hand I hop in, start, and take off 30 seconds later. No worry about bumps, curbs, anything. The Z is definately a play car but the saturn will still be my daily driver. Looks like I will stick around these forums a little longer after all.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I always thought it would be hard to have a sports car as a practical daily driver. The best for me would probably be a nice midsize, but the Ion and my old S serve well and have better mileage, so they also work.

What sort of mileage does the Z get? It has to have premium fuel, right?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Ya it definately needs 93 gas. I guess if you run low-end gas like 87 there is a risk of detonation. Especially on a 1991. As far as gas mileage...if I shift at 2800-3000 rpm it gets the same mileage as a maxima. But who does that? Using the turbo it sucks gas like a V8!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
