    Perfect! Sounds like they have proven to last.

    Did you have to ream them or just use as is?

    That 660 bronze is way tougher than the oilite could ever dream of. They'll definetly last a LONG time if they're teased with a little grease every now and then.

    Should be able to use as is, since the bolt that goes through them is slightly undersized.

    Great score!

    Synthetic oil, syncromesh in the trans, a K&N reusable air filter, flushing the coolant and brake fluid are always a good idea when you get a new Z.

    Thanks. Was just looking to find something to drive back and forth to work and saw it for sale. I really like the car so far.

    I know its low miles but I'm still going to put a new timing belt, water pump, thermostat, coolant hoses and belt in it. Synthetic oil and Iceman+ K&N already in the car. I used RP syncromesh in my Mustang so I'm definitely familiar with the product and will do this when I get the TWM shifter. I'll add coolant and brake line flushes to the list... thanks for the tips! Are you still selling those cool shift/brake boots, t-shirts, stickers, etc. I'm interested if you are.

    You don't sound like a top end power kind of guy, so you should stick to a 2.25" exhaust system.

    With this car I need it to get the best fuel mileage it can... Im hoping to add some hp and also increase mpg if possible.

    Honestly, if your belt rides and looks good, I wouldn't change it. Water pump is independent from the t-belt, so no need to touch it either, unless it's showing signs of leakage. I'd get some Redline MTL instead of Synchromesh. Either 75W80 or 70W80, can't remember off the top of my head, but the shifts had gotten a lot better after I changed it out. I also vote for 2.25" exhaust, unless you're going to be doing head work and/or boost.

    Gotcha. I'll do a visual inspection on the belt and water pump. Thanks for the tip on the Redline MTL... I do some research on that product as I've never used it. I know the Synchromesh works great in the T5's but every transmission is different. Yeah... I'm definitely leaning towards the 2.25" exhaust... I'll not be doing any head work or boosting on this car just bolt ons. I've got enough V8's setting around my house that like to drink gas... I want to enjoy the 4 cylinder mpg. lol Got the little gal in the shop right now getting tires balanced and alignment. Its such a cool little car. I hope it lasts me a long time.
