Hi all. I've been floating around on the Facebook group for a while now and I though it was time to start a build thread and properly introduce myself.
I've wanted a z11 for ages, ever since I saw a lowered metallic green one in bath years ago, and when one popped up on eBay I couldn't resist and snapped it up for 700 quid. 83k miles, full service and maintenance history and slightly tatty paint.
There was obviously a catch. An overheating problem I'm sure a few of you are familiar with. Combustion gases in the coolant blah blah. The problem got a lot better after a couple of bottles of steel seal and I barely notice it now, however my plan is to do the k12 engine swap before any major mods, but once that's done I'll hopefully be down low and sitting sweet in time for next season.
This is a great club and I look forward to many years of cube ownership. I'll be documenting the engine swap and all the mods here. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I'll be happy to answer any of your questions.
