Finding JDM parts

Postby jiveturkey » Tue Oct 13, 2020 9:35 am

I have been looking for catalytic converter for my '91 300zx N/A RHD. I picked up a Magnaflow converter but it completely did not fit, the bends were not even proper. My mechanic suggested that I find a part from Japan. I have NO idea where to look.
I checked PartsNext and Greenline.jp but they did not have a catalytic converter. At this point I'm not sure what will fit. If I do get my hands on a converter, will I have issues with a non-jdm exhaust?

Looking for some input.

Thanks

Too bad I took my JDM cats to the scrap yard few months ago.
If you are in a non smog state, maybe just gut them for now.

I'm in MD but the car is registered as historic so I don't have to pass emissions. I was considering test pipes but I just don't want the noise.

I would contact a gentleman by the name of Bernie Biliski in Alexandria VA. He might have a lead on some exh parts. He is a Z32 specialist and parts out a lot of these cars. I'm not sure if he is on this site, but is active on TT.net. I'd make a profile on there and ask him or contact at [email protected]
Hope that helps,
good luck
