• Cool find! My '75 started life that color. There's not a ton of emissions equipment on this pre-EGR car – just the charcoal canister over there near the vacuum bottle. What makes it look complex is that this is relatively early electronic fuel injection. The displacement bump helped the 280Z some, but the big change was jettisoning the flat-top Hitachi carbs and smog add-ons that held back the late 240 and all 260s for a licensed version of Bosch L-Jetronic. That means this car can easily be tuned to handle mods if the stock bits are replaced with a modern ECU (Megasquirt, AEM, SDS, etc.).
