  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. What's the weight difference vs an Optima?
  6. 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.
  9. WTB 240z rear disc caliper brackets

    http://www.silverminemotors.com/datsun/datsun-240z/brake-kit-individual-parts/rear-disk-conversion-brake-bracket-for-240z-260z-280z Cheapest I could find for just the brackets. Of course yeah, you could find a 82-85 Maxima in a Pick-N-Pull or something and yank the rear caliper brackets, but they're a pain in the ass to get off. And then you have to machine out the center hole to fit over the 240z hub.
  10. You definitely have the only one of those in the world. How much wider is your front track width then the rear?
  11. So they work in a 280z but not in a 240z?
  12. New to forums and z cars

    Wolf creek racing http://www.wolfcreekracing.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=72&Itemid=61 Modern Motorsports http://www.modern-motorsports.com/datsun-240z-280z-complete-cv-axle-conversion.html Techno Toy Tuning https://technotoytuning.com/nissan/240z/complete-r200-r230-rear-end-conversion-z-car There's three options. They all have pros and cons. There are more options out there. You may want to consider going solid axle if all you wanna do is drag race. Nothing wrong with that.
  13. New to forums and z cars

    You want to replace the half shaft, or upgrade it? Or are you looking to upgrade the whole rear end? If looking to upgrade, what's your budget? There's lots of solutions out there.
  14. First Z!

    Even if he's not, it seems like he's a good solid chassis which lots of suspension upgrades, wheels and tires, and interior all sorted out. All that's missing is paint, and whatever drivetrain you're gonna use and some motor mounts. He could then sell any parts he's not gonna use and recoup that money to waste in other areas of the car.
  15. Everything is saveable. It just comes down to how much money you want to spend on saving it. See if you can find a Z in better condition, and find out how much they want for that one. Now subtract 1000 dollars from the price tag of that one and start looking up if you can fix those rust issues for the difference in price. It's a rational way to find an irrational solution.
  16. TIG welder recommendation

    In college we welded the tube frame and just about everything for SAE Baja with a setup real similar to this one https://portland.craigslist.org/clk/tls/d/miller-tig-welder-high/6317026756.html

    Very neat! Any reason you didn't use the Taurus fan like lots of people do?
  18. LS376/480 4L70E HELP!!!

    Check craigslist or http://www.car-part.com for used engines. Your rear diff won't explode with that kinda torque. Just run it. Get better shocks and springs though. Buy the Futo fab CV axle kit if you're worried about the stock axles.
  19. Heat soaked

    How do you know the fuel is becoming too hot?
  20. 1971 240Z L28 - Datsun Z Garage

    With the way prices have been going for S30's lately, that's a really good deal for someone. You going into a new type of car, or just no projects for a while?
  21. I've noticed the same issue, and I'm not sure why it's happening.
  22. It sounds like you need better insulation, not a different car.
  23. Is "get both" an option? An S30, especially a modified one, doesn't seem like the best daily driver. But for a weekend car, which car are you going to look forward to driving more?
  24. Sound Deadening Material For Floor

    How much of that did you use? Did you cover the whole car? (floor, roof, doors, firewall,etc)
