    Just came back after a long break. Sold my Z projects years ago and haven't been on here since. Looks like my last post was back in 2010...Anyhow, Still got the Z bug, just don't have a project for now. I think I'm going to start looking again. Is Tony D still around?
  3. I'll take the crank, rods and pistons for $500. Let me know if we have a deal? Thanks.

    Turbo swap, steering question...

    I would much prefer the manual. My 77 is manual and I loved the way it handled when it was on the road. My 81 is power, but it feels more like the manual steering in my 77. Except of course when stopped and turning the wheel.

    Turbo swap, steering question...

    I have a front cross member with R&P, but I don't want to lose my RB setup because it responds soooo much better than the R&P models. Also I have the trans cross member from the turbo car I pulled everything out of. I also have the rear diff, CV shafts, axel stub adapters, etc. etc... I went into this with a pretty good idea of what I needed from the parts car.

    Turbo swap, steering question...

    I like that thought. Are there any disadvantages to an external waste gate? I'll probably throw it in as is and cut the bracket for now, but for future reference this would be good to know.

    Turbo swap, steering question...

    Anytime, I was building and selling the ECUs for a while there. I'm pretty good at diagnosing problems and I haven't met an ECU yet that I couldn't repair. I had one running my old setup for a very short time. That setup died due to overly high compression and old low octane gas, but the MS-II ran it anyway, even after the head gasket blew out around two cylinders. Damn good ECUs...Gotta finish my car...I'm getting antsy again...

    Thanks for the link! At least I know I can keep my reciprocating ball steering and still install the turbo. It's just a tight fit to the waste gate.

    Turbo swap, steering question...

    I have the full drive train from the turbo and a MS-II setup already wired into the car, I'm just concerned about the steering box getting in the way of the turbo.

    That sucks. I like the reciprocating ball steering. How do they work around it in the 280z swaps?

    MSA 3 into 2 Aerospace coated header

    Still available, $200 plus shipping. Shipping to Cali was quoted at $30 parcel post from USPS.
  12. I'm getting ready to drop a turbo into my 81ZX and I wasn't sure if the turbo and the steering box would interfere? My ZX has reciprocating ball steering so there's a steering box on the fender well. It looks like it's close to the location the turbo would sit, but I wasn't sure. Does anyone know if there's any clearance issues with this setup?

    Stroker Build Parts

    Unturned crank shaft from an LD28 diesel. This is the crank you need if you want to build a stroker. I also have a set of 6 KA24 pistons and L24 rods. I was going to build a stroker, but as with everything else I just don't have time anymore. Family comes first and I could use the cash. $500 OBO + shipping for everything.

    2+2 Turbo Drive Shaft

    $50 plus shipping. Bought this for a friends 2+2 he was going to do a turbo swap on. Ended up selling the car so it never got used.
