  1. Ford Super 8.8 irs swap thread. Rear brakes too

    Techno Toy Tuning did exactly this but used Q45 or Z32 diff, CVs, axles, and brakes. Very cool to have more options out there.
  2. Ford Super 8.8 irs swap thread. Rear brakes too

    So would you be fabricating a custom knuckle that the S30 transverse link, the Subaru Strut, and the Mustang Hub and brakes can all bolt to?

    I've never seen that middle section, but they do sell the lower valance and upper hatch trim piece new http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic02o04b/30-7240 http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic02o04b/30-7291
  4. Diff Swap Affecting Brakes?

    If you're just putting on a 280z longnose R200, then you don't actually need the companion flange and stub axle. However, as it is stronger than the 240z stub axle, if you're planning on boosting power at all, it wouldn't be a terrible upgrade to do. As far as rear brakes go, if you're upgrading rear brakes to disk brakes, then it doesn't matter if you change the stub axle and companion flange. They don't affect the rear rotor or mounting surface. Here is an example that shows that the 240z,260z,&280z all use the same rear brake upgrade. http://www.silverminemotors.com/datsun/datsun-280z/brake-upgrades/stage-4-rear-big-brake-kit I would recommend reading a lot more, multiple times, most of the stick threads, as well as just looking at the rear end of your car to see what all the parts are actually doing. There is a wealth of information on this site. Just keep searching.
  5. Diff Swap Affecting Brakes?

    Ok well lets get back on topic. A Q45 doesn't have a Longnose R200. It has a short nose R200, and is completely different. Are you going to install a Longnose R200 (which are commonly found in the 280z) or a shortnose R200 (which are commonly found in the Q45)? Or are you talking about getting the Longnose R200 out of a Z31, which uses CV axles and has an LSD equipped?
  6. Diff Swap Affecting Brakes?

    Totally depends on how you're planning on connecting the short nose R200 (Q45 diff) to the S30 chassis. If you're going to get the full Techno Toy Tuning package, then yes, your brakes and pretty much everything on the rear end will be changed. However, if you're planning on doing something else... I guess you could get some kind of custom mount to mount the R200 to the chassis, then get some sort of custom adapter to bolt your axles to the diff output flanges. That way you'd still be using the same axles and hubs. I'm not sure anyone sells those parts though. Also, if you're not sure what is part is what, power goes from the engine to the tires in this order Engine>>>Transmission>>>Driveshaft>>>Diff input flange>>>Diff gears>>>Diff Output Flange>>>Axles>>>Companion Flange>>>Stub Axle>>>Tires.
  7. Check out "Camaro fuel tank in 240z" while you're doing research. The tank out of an LS equipped Camaro has a pretty solid fuel pump already in it and has a flat top. It's been retrofitted into an S30 chassis before as well.
  8. Ecoboost swap

    Ecoboost is just Fords slick marketing term for "turbocharged". Which engines are having these problems? Ford has many turbo engines. Also, posting in all caps is for 8 year olds and 70 year olds. Please refrain from doing so.

  10. Gas Monkey 280z at SEMA

    There's nothing wrong with this S30. It's got damn every part that we all like to put on our cars that is currently offered by vendors out there right now. ...But there's nothing overly special about it either, other than it's well done. We have members on this forum that have more unique and interesting cars that were made on a much smaller budget in a 2 car garage than this thing.
  11. What's the weight difference vs an Optima?
  12. 1974 Turbo 260z $4800 Kansas

    Seems like you have a lot more than 4800 dollars worth of parts in that. I know it doesn't run, but dang. That's a good deal. Good luck with the sale.

    Did you factor in transmission weight too? I know that T56 isn't exactly light. I'd go with whichever one will be cheaper. Factor in whichever one you can re-sell easiest and for the most amount of money too.

    Go with the lighter one.
