  1. boosted300's RB 240Z

    The injectors are some outdated 1200cc's RC injectors. The tuner told me they are really sloppy and it's noticeable on the low end driveability and startup. He said that I could probably pick up a few HP at the same boost levels just from getting new, more efficient injectors. The tires are Nitto NT05R drag radials 275/40/17 (the front tires, at the top of the picture, are Yokohama A008's)

    So wait, now I know I have missed some good stuff on this forum...I didn't know you could use a Z32 or 350Z transmission with the RB25...that is killer. Nice to know there are options.
  3. The making of Zilla Z

    Yes, actually that's what I meant to say, the baffle is the divider...which is great that you have it because it really makes a big difference in efficiency.

    Yes, it helps to spread the flow of the air through the entire core of the intercooler to maximize efficiency. And I know what you mean...I have Z31 that has been sorely neglected because of my S30...but I WISH I had a CLS63! Good luck with the build, I'm looking forward to seeing it come to fruition. Cheers

    Fast forward to December, 2017...cold weather, or what local motorheads like to refer to as "Turbo Weather", had arrived. Normal people here say "hey it's gonna get cold this week", people in my circle say "hey man, turbo weather this week!" Now that it was cool out and there was no chance of rain, time to take the car to get the AC running right? Wrong...why do today what you can put off for tomorrow? I had been waiting so long to drive the car again that when the cool weather arrived all I wanted to do was drive...I wasn't in the mood to fix at the moment. Plus I knew I had a good 2-3 months to address the issue so naturally I procrastinated and just enjoyed the car.

    How is this project coming along? Also a question: did you get the baffled Treadstone end tanks?

    Winter in Miami is very brief and very fleeting. While it spans only 2-3 months at best, it really consists of sporadic spurts of a few days of cool to "cold" (by Miami standards) weather at a time mixed in with warm to downright hot days the majority of the time. The only consistent change in weather during the winter, for the most part, is milder, if not bearable, humidity. By the very next week, the weather was hot and, even worse, rainy...Even if I would drive the car in the rain...which I would never...driving in the rain without AC is among the most unpleasant experiences, made worse by the fact it was hot and rainy. So one week turned into another, and another and next thing you know it's full blown summer with temps in the 90s and humidity in what feels like the 100's. Attempting to drive the car in that weather without AC, to go and get the AC filled, would result in soaking my clothes, and the interior of the car, in sweat. So I had to wait for mild weather to make any attempt to try and get it filled...and there wouldn't be any mild weather again for almost 9 months. Up north I know it's common practice to put cars away for the winter...here people often put cars away for the summer mainly because of the rain, myself included. I wouldn't drive the car again until December.

    As summertime (2017) was soon approaching, at this point, I decided to try and get the AC system we had installed up and running. As much (or as little) as I know about cars, and as much experience as I've had with them over the years...AC systems are one of those things I've never been much of an expert at. I understand the integral components, and the way the system operates to produce the cold air inside...but it's the whole high pressure/low pressure, dual gauge side I never really knew much about. They've always been kind of a mystery to me and I've never really taken the time, nor had any reason, to try and understand them. Since the system was brand new, I knew I couldn't just go to Pep Boys and buy a can of Freon and pump it in. The system needed to be vacuumed to remove the air in the lines and ensure there were no leaks, there also needed to be some oil added...and then of course the whole high/low dual gauge bit to get the right amount of Freon in since there was no OEM manual that was going to tell us the capacity. I'm pretty OCD when it comes to my car and really the only other person who had touched it beside me was Doug...he's the only one I trust blindly. Other than him, I simply can't just take my car to any old shop and certainly couldn't leave it there to be worked on without me present. As a result, I had been putting off getting they system filled and running because it was still the cool season in Miami and it was easy to ignore. With summer approaching I now had no choice. Since going to the nearest Goodyear to get the system filled and running was out of the question, I searched for a boutique AC specialist and found a guy that specialized in vintage car AC systems. He vacuumed the system and my primary concern was soon put to rest as the system held vaccum and had no leaks. But that was as much good news as I was going to get for the day. As luck would have it, his fitting for the low pressure side was faulty and he couldn't get it to seat properly...so he couldn't charge the system... He told me he needed to order a new one and told me to check back with him in about a week.

    Having spent so little "quality time" with my car over the previous two years, I occasionally make up for it with some random adoring photos...

    Thank you very much sir, I appreciate that! It was a long, hard road to get here. More to come!

    Thank you sir!

    Third go-round on the dyno: Fuel pressure held steady this time. I told the tuner I wasn't trying to break any records and my main concern was not breaking the motor. One thing I did tell him is that I would like a number that started with 5... He delivered me a safe, conservative tune...that netted 510RWHP @ 23psi on 93 octane. I was satisfied with that, especially considering that traction was already near its threshold.

    Very impressive work, that's quite an undertaking.

    Looks like you have your work cut out for you! Good luck with the project...oh, and... keep it Nissan

    Hey fellas, I've posted some updates for the RB crowd that doesn't wander into the S30 thread...
