Hi folks,

About 20 odd years ago I recall reading this website on Geocities which is now defunct and hasn't been available for some time. It contained great information about modifications you could do to your S30Z. I recently found someone had copy/pasted it onto another site.

The images are missing unfortunately, but the content still relevant.

The original site was available here:

http://www.geocities.com/zgarage2001/engine.html

Using the site Archive.org : https://web.archive.org/ you can actually find snapshots of the content from back then. Which may or may not have indexed the images to go with the content.

Here's a snapshot from December 2001 as an example.

Gav this is an awesome reference. Any of the other pages links would be much appreciated. Is all this information accurate all these years later? From what I can see it looks pretty accurate.

I couldn’t work out how to get web archive to work…. Maybe coz I’m on my phone? 

Maybe? Not sure haven't really tested the archive.org site on Mobile much. Perhaps I should try and turn the site into a PDF file for future archiving purposes?
