Monday, March 14, 2005 9:08 PM
4 speed auto 98 Z less than 50k miles, or 5 speed 96 2.2 with less than 50K?

Well, I'm against anything automatic, so I would say the 96. But how can you turn down a Z24, so I'm torn, but I'd probably go with the 96

if you only want reliability get the 2.2, otherwise get the Z. i know a few people have made some killer 2.2's, but if you want performance and dont wanna have to spend a bunch...the Z is the only choice. you could find an Eco equipped car too, though i must say im less than impressed with mine, especially after all the hype. sure its nearly a second faster(1/4 mile) than my 2200/3 spd sunfire was, with less mods, but i expected more than a 16.8@77mph from it. though a buddy of mine has one thats running 16.0 with i/h/e & a couple other little mods, not bad for an auto.

I'd get the Z, but i like auto's & can't stand how slow 2.2s are. It's also 2 years newer.

it depends waht your trying to do


you want something quick, or your into performance just get the Z.....more of a show car type get the 2.2

the Z is what I'm leaning toward now. Was going to get the 2.2 and research a turbo fitment on it, the reason I wanted to trade my car with this person, but a stick would be really nice. But as for a 4 speed automatic is good for me as well. That one has no sunroof, but I hope it has all the power accessories because I'm sick of my manual window. Yeah it takes a few pounds off, but I can sacrifice a few pounds on myself for the power options.

Oh and what do I need to watch for if I get the Z as in Maintainence? It seems the water pump is the biach, but yeah, I need to know before I decide because my 2200 sfi has no problem at all though I've turboed it for awhile.

I personally wouldn't get either. If it was me it'd be a 2.4/2.2eco and 5 speed.

You can get 05's for pretty cheap every once and a while.
