Don't forget the to do the timing belt on the Z if it has not been done already. It is due every 60,000 miles or 6 years. It is a big job. Good parts with water pump are a few hundred plus labor. You would not have to do it at all on the MB, but you already made the choice due to the chain design over the belts.
The 300zx cars were decent driving cars for their time. A bit anemic for its class especially in the handling, but still fun.
