S13...no.

S14...have no idea.

Z...have even less of an idea.

On the s13, don't forget the small bolt holding the filler neck near the fuel door.

Unbolt it first. Hard to drop otherwise.

yo just removed mine last week, you have to drop the subrame. Its alot easier if the fuel tank is empty. Once subframe is removed, there are 2 straps holding it in, remove fuel lines on passenger side. Removal of fuel filler hose is done through fuel pump access hole, or underneath depending on location of clamp. Have fun
