WHY I DON'T OWN A TWIN TURBO Z (but, still love 'em!)
This shows how hot your turbo's can get after a moderate run. More so, it shows why it is preferable to use a turbo timer to allow them to cool down. If you don't have one, let your car idle for 1 - 2 minutes before you turn it off!

My personal experience - stay clear of the 1989 and 1990 Z's. Go for '91 or up as I've heard there were some "fixes" in the engine bay (sensors, injection etc) Not that the '90 Z is a bad car, you're just guarenteed to have less problems with the '91 and up.

I believe the '96 model was released WITHOUT variable timing, removing about 20 odd HP from the beast reducing to 280HP in the TT. The best all-round model would be a 1993 to 95 2+2, twin turbo, 5spd manual (however, they're rare as hens teeth and if you did manage to find one, it would cost!) NOTE: The TT only came in a 2 seater in the US
