This stream auto-updates     

  1. Today
  2. Need some advise on DCOE selection for my 240z. Engine is L24. Head is E88, larger stainless valves, mild porting. Cam is 224-307 8.5. 3000-6200rpm power band. Good road cam for triples I have been told. DCOE are 40mm 151's. 30mm chokes, 120 mains. 170 air correctors, F11 emulsions, 50 F9 idles, 40 pump, 55 pump bypass, 4.5 Aux, 39mm ram tubes. The car is a weekend drive around hills, occasional open road crusing, good idle not some lumpy boyracer traffic light bogan sound. Thanks James
  3. rod/stroke ratio

    Works about about 10.5:1, I won't believe everything till the bottom end is built and measured as it could possibly be nearer 11:1.
  4. rod/stroke ratio

    HI They're a custom made JE forged piston. Deck height over standard 0.035" but with valve pockets. with the other parts it should help make an interesting engine away from the norm. I'm trying to put together something revvy and fun feeling. Not and out and out HP build.
  5. Top chop update

    Super look, not many people could conceive that and pull it off, subtle yet oh so effective. It could be a completely new modern version of the S30. Seriously most modded S30's look rubbish to me but you sir have come up with the exception.
  6. For a race car I go up to 8*, problem with the S30 is getting clearance for that figure. That's a bit much for a road car though, likely to wear the tyre tread inside.
  7. Yep same for me. It would be nice to get the custom streams somewhere more prominent
  8. Thanks for the response. Unless I'm missing something, it seems that instead of simply clicking on unread content, I would have to go to the activities tab and click on that stream every time.That's not very convenient, and I don't know why it would be like that now when it wasn't before - they fixed something that wasn't broken.
  9. The "unread Content" on the mainpage is not the same you saved. "Activity" -> "My Activity Streams" -> "Custom Streams"
  10. @MicrosoftFlow Have temporarily disabled comments on the #MicrosoftFlow Blog...but will be enabling them ASAP #thanksforyoupatience

  11. rod/stroke ratio

    It's pretty amazing how little ots stocking parts there are for L engines. There are way more obscure engines out their that you have any array of choices for. Now almost any piston you can buy for a Chevy you would have to work at to spend much over $100 a piston unless talking exotic stuff. My Cosworth pistons for my Subaru were less than $200 a piston and they are over the top exotic. I understand economies of scale but certainly should be able to do better than the $1200+ I see advertised.
  12. I've been having this problem on CZC since they updated their software, and also now here as well since we've done the same. When I try to filter my unread content feed to just 'Topics' under the Content Type menu, and hit 'save changes', it never actually saves those changes. If I navigate to the forum home page, and then hit 'unread content', the feed is unfiltered again. When I first started using this feature on CZC, pre-update, the settings I selected were saved and that was that. Any ideas? Additionally, I've noticed that page numbers for multi-page topics are now gone from the unread content listing. It would be nice if there was a button to simply go to the last page (or whichever page) like there used to be. These buttons are still present in when browsing in the various sub forums.
  13. Just need a couple mill so i can live life how I'd like😂😂

  14. 78 280Z LS3 Project

    Very nice. Always enjoy seeing your updates.
  15. I missed this the first time around. If you do another run I'd be in for a hoodie and shirt.
  16. Yesterday
  17. where to get OEM parts

    The parts manager at Lynchburg Nissan, Riley Curtis is bending over backwards for people looking for OEM parts. On FB, search for "Riley LynchburgNissan", he's watching all the time. He has helped me and many other immensely.
  18. where to get OEM parts

    Did Courtesy parts ever come back? I got some hard to find stuff from them before.
  19. With a few new power steering kits out there, would dialing in more caster in the front be helpful? I just installed power steering and will put on short steering knuckles soon, so will need an alignment. I was going to use these specs from the alignment sticky: Street For 225 to 245 width radial DOT tires try these alignment settings: Front Camber: 1.25 to 1.5 neg Caster: 4 to 5 positive (even on both sides) Toe: 1/16" out or 0 Ride height: 6" to 6 1/2" measured at the front of the rocker outboard of the pinch weld seam. Rear Camber: 1.25 to 1.5 neg Toe: 1/16" to 1/8" in Ride height: 6 1/2" to 7" measured at the front of the rocker outboard of the pinch weld seam. For tire widths over 245 try these alignment settings: Front Camber: 1.25 to 1.5 neg Caster: 4 to 5 positive (even on both sides) Toe: 1/16" out or 0 Ride height: 6 1/2" to 7" measured at the front of the rocker outboard of the pinch weld seam. Rear Camber: 1.25 to 1.5 neg Toe: 1/16" to 1/8" in Ride height: 7" to 7 1/2" measured at the front of the rocker outboard of the pinch weld seam. Would more caster be a bad thing? And what about 0 or 1/16 toe in? I have slight toe out, between that and bumpsteer, my car wanders on the street.
  20. Series 1 240z Steering Wheel

    Message sent.
  21. Getting closer to dropping in the engine. Finished the brake and clutch lines. Will finish running fuel lines this weekend. I will be using an electric low pressure fuel pump at the OEM gas tank feeding the Edelbrock fuel sump, that has a EFI fuel pump submerged in the fuel in the sump. Will finish removing extra wiring in the engine bay that will not be used.
  22. Star road grill kit with deletes and valance finally installed . Just gotta tweek it a bit and it will be perfect .
  23. WTB auxiliary air control valve

    No not the same valve setup. Thank you for looking. I'm just going to upgrade to the 240sx throttle body which should help with the idle issues I'm having.
  24. WTB auxiliary air control valve

    From memory - don't think this is the same valve arrangement
  25. rod/stroke ratio

    Care to share what pistons are from ? Or were these custom made? Deck height?
  26. rod/stroke ratio

    Slightly better than l28 rod not as good as original l24 setup but nothing to get excited about
