New pic. Lowered it this morning. Its the eibach prokit . Rides like stock but much firmer.
same pile as always. lowered, different wheels and a whole lot has changed under the hood
so wheres the pics of under the hood?
hehehe…never took any honestly. The underhood really isn’t that clean except the actual top of the motor. I’ve taken so many pics of the car over the years I’m just tired of it
My daily driver, 93 Z-34 Lumina.
oh man. bad memories with that motor…
so it doesn’t ride like stock anymore.
does a “twin dual cam v6” actually have 4 cams?
looks like it by the shape of the valve cover
Yup, 4 cams, 24 valves.
The LQ1 (also called the Twin Dual Cam) was a special DOHC version of the 3.1 L LH0 V6. It was built from 1991 to 1997. From 1991 to 1993, it used tuned multi-port fuel injection, made 200-210 hp (150-160 kW) @ 5200 rpm and 215 ft·lbf (290 Nm) of torque @ 4000 r/min. From 1994 to 1997, it used sequential port fuel injection, making 215 hp (160 kW) @ 5200 rpm and 225 ft·lbf (300 Nm) of torque @ 4000 rpm. It had four large valves per cylinder. The 3.4 L engine used a cogged belt to drive the four overhead camshafts. Adapting a pushrod block for the LQ1 was difficult, and the 60° angle made this a very tall engine, but power output was impressive.
Bore was increased to 92 mm, but the 3.1 L engine’s 84 mm stroke was retained. There are only a few interchangeable parts between this DOHC engine and other members of the 60° family, namely the connecting rods and crankshaft.
The heads and intake manifolds were redesigned for the 1996 model year, incorporating a larger throttle body and plenum area, slightly shorter intake runners, cloverleaf combustion chambers, and larger “square”-shaped exhaust ports. Camshafts and cam timing were also revised for the new, higher RPM powerband.
Cliffs : No.
i like my 3800 Series 2 in the GTP alot better than the 3.4 twin DOHC i had in my 95 Z34
oh god, i hated that motor. mine ran like hell, but broke stuff constantly, and $1800 to replace the head gaskets, huh. forget about it.
nice looking car though.
So far I’ve been having good luck with it. Just not happy I’m getting 12 MPG in the city. Might be the tune or something; may be running rich.
wait till you need a powersteering pump
or alternator for that matter
what do you think a dohc 4.6 has
New alternator was installed just before I bought it, little over a year ago.
I was referring to the twin and dual in the same name, it seems a little
