  1. Loftwing, The L28et 260Z

    Almost 2 years wow...alot has changed on this car. And in some ways not much.. Could be because it was been down much of the time sence the last post. Was down for 5 months in 2016 due to a crazy work schedule so it took forever to change fuel rail and up grade the system. Then in Oct of 2016 I killed the turbo at the drag strip and am just now getting the car back running. With alot of big changes. Pics to come soon along with I hope some good old HZ advice. Glad to be back HW
  3. Well its been a crazy past few years for me... But I am finally making some progress on the Z. The plan to go LS is gone! I am staying SBC the motor is built and pics will be on the way soon. Car will be much more fun on a bun.

  5. Well all the plugs were clean, compression test was good 118 -120 ALL across. But the turbo on the other hand is TOASTED. https://youtu.be/da-mKm9G3sQ As you can see in the video. Good call Tony D. Now time to send it off to be upgraded to a t3t4 with 360 thrusts.
  6. The noise is at 18 secs. It's like a high pich wine then a hwoop noise. Smoke is whiteish smells like oil.
  7. Hello HZ family. L28et,fmic,mbc,[email protected], stock t3, stock block and head. Z31 ecu I was at the drag strip on Friday and had something bad happen and I am trying to get some help with a possible diagnosis. Car had been running good all night but only making 10 psi. When it should of been at 14psi using mbc. So we marked at took apart the mbc cleaned it and set back to were it was marked. Went to make another pass and car came on to boost as was at 14-15 psi I looked over to check my afr and looked back at boost and saw 17psi and then it made a weird noise and lost power. Car still running drove off the track with smoke coming out the tail pipe and back to the pits. Car will idle fine but smoke slightly. With Rev good but puffs a good amount of smoke. And will not make any boost. Here is a video of the run and the you can hear the weird noise. https://youtu.be/ejNXH0ughjY Any help would be great thank you.
  8. L28ET running lean

    Well it's fixed, the exhaust wrap was holding to much heat in the pipe and causing a lean conditions. Found a old articles about then benefits and risk of exhaust wrap and lean condition was one of the risks so I trimmed back my wrap job and took the car for a drive and woot all good
  9. L28ET running lean

    Fuel pressure under load is great gaining 1.5 psi per
  10. L28ET running lean

    No signs of missfire. And yes as soon as I fished the coolant system. I have a in line gauge and at idle I have 40 psi and have changed both fuel filters. And if I pull the vac line off the stock fpr it increases 9psi. I hvae pulled the afm and run the car with it hooked up and set to the side with me minlupating the flap and I can correct the lean at idle by doing that I'm thinking the afm might be the issue. And I have the stuff to do the z31 swap along with a new fuel system including fpr.
  11. Hello my good Zfamily: My et swapped 260z has been running well up to this last weekend. I changed the radiator, thermostat, fan belt, and wrapped the downpip, and now it's running very lean under load. I did remove the fmic to install the radiator but have checked all the clamps and joints for leaks. It starts getting lean as soon as the vac starts to switch in to boost, and if you give it more throttle it goes very lean 19-21 on my gauge. Now when your just cruising it seams to be ok 14.3-15. Has any one had these issues. I have tested the afm,tps,and chts via the fsm. Thanks for any help.
  12. Loftwing, The L28et 260Z

    Went to the track aging two weekends ago, and was happy with the results. A slight bump it boost to 10 psi I have a few more goodies on order and hope to make it to the track once more before it closes for winter. my biggest hold back is still the auto trans.
  13. Loftwing, The L28et 260Z

    I will do that, this is my other Z SBC 280z but it is getting the motor pulled due to a knock and might be getting a LS.
  14. Loftwing, The L28et 260Z

    Had another great weekend with the car, had a OKZCC Z car show this weekend in Tulsa Oklahoma and I took home 1st place in 240/260Z. So many beautiful 280Z in the area they have there own category. Only bad thing from the weekend was my driver seat back broke as i was leaving the car show so after getting home I ripped out the seats found some more rust spots, laid down some rust kill paint and ten some flat black, and swapped the passenger seat to the driver side for now.. I also snagged this beautiful fuel rail from a friend who is selling off all his Z stuff. He also paid it forward big time to a young Zcar guy who loves his Z but it has some major rust issues so he gave him rust free 280z rollers. I love the Z car community a bunch of good guys.
  15. Got some of my parts on order, Have any of you run a aftermarket wastegate on you stock turbo? I also ordered a now BOV.. And here are a few vids from the drag strip on Saturday night I figured the car was running better then it ever has why not take it out and see how much it has improved scene I picked it up. Best Pass: Me vs my friends 350Z .. we had the same trap speed yet he was a sec faster. Cant wait to get my new parts in and see if I can break 100mph and that 10psi wastegate should help.
