Hello everyone, new member and first time owner

Hello everyone new member from Aberdeen in scotland. Bought a very nice non turbo model. Can I ask 1 question did the naturally aspirated models come with awd and aws ? Its a manel 1994 model ?


#2

Hi there.
Welcome to the club. Yes the na did come with awd, all jap market imports have it and there are two chassis codes, Z16a with rws, Z15a non rws. You will see your chassis no on the bulkhead by the wiper motor.
Good luck with your car.

Thanks mate that’s brilliant always wanted one collect it the 5th January after my trip offshore and it’s advertised as aws and awd but you know what sellers are like thanks for the knowhow and also do you know whatbthe stock internals on these non turbo blocks can reach safely ? They are different compression ratings from the th model aren’t they.

regards
Marty.

#9

Nice rims Martin :+1:


#10

Thanks man what’s the opinions on colour was gonna do them all gloss black with a silver glisten to them or is every one diggin the anthracite?


#11

As i have said else where in this forum its a fools errand to try to tune a NON turbo car

Its far far cheaper to just buy a Twin Turbo than to mod a NON turbo car to even nearly standard Twin Turbo power

There are dozens of major differences between them both.

Leave the wheels as they are and lose the black sticker, then you will have a classy looking car :+1:


#12

Yeah the stickers are coming off just work away so havnt had the time there is also a daft stickers on the rear window all seems to be Harley Quinn the previous owner was obviously obsessed haha and my thoughts were just to do a full stainless exhaust, uprated lifter (purely because mind as starting to get noisy) and an induction kit, I think your right anything else engine power wise will.be a waste of money gonna concentrate on making the car look nice.


#13

Agree with Rob leave the wheels !


#14

My GTO is in the body shop in April I am going for Graphite but keeping the outer rim silver but my car is black, must admit that silver car with silver wheels does look cool.


#15

I am up in Lossiemouth, and also new to GTO ownership, also offshore. Looks like this is a great forum for any advice.


#16

Thanks lads on a separate note. Headlight side light and you light bulbs is it as it says in the pictures for the gto also ?


#17
