  1. ~73 Turbo L28 to N/A RB25 240z Project~

    Thanks, it's actually pretty funky up close haha. Yeah I really need to paint that front air dam. I think about it every time I look at it!

    Luckily for me there were 30a relays already in there.

    Picked up a set of Raybrig headlights. How did I go this long without upgrading my headlights?!? Haven't had a chance to drive at night yet but they look much better than the Autopal's that were installed. Everything was already modified for the H4's so it was a fast change out.

    Been slowly working on the RB26DETT ITB's. They were pretty filthy.. After a lot of elbow grease.. There is a coating from the factory that helps seal the butterflys at idle because the butterfly plate have small gaps around them that air can pass through, when you clean it off you can have a high idle and even a lack of throttle response. I ordered a can of Molykote 321 to re-coat the inside. I'll show this later on. Next up I'll be port matching the manifold to the throttle bodys. I'm quite surprised how much of a lip sticks out. This will all be make flush and any extra rough casting areas will be removed and smoothed. Marking out the areas to be massaged..
  5. What to do when shop has had car 9 months?

    I was in the same boat as you once. It was a buddy's shop and he always gave me great deals on labor but he would fit me in when he could. Right after I bought my 73 I took it to him to figure some wiring issues out, the car ended up not running anymore while it was there and it didn't seem like he was working on it at all. So my new car was sitting at this shop for nearly a year collecting dust. I finally got tired of it and had him tow the car back to my house. Turned out to be a bad ignition coil resistor. I know exactly what your feeling right now trust me! It's hard for a shop to work on someone elses project when they can turn and burn a bunch of easy oil changes or other misc through the day and make their money. I wouldn't bother with the cops or lawyer unless you really think the car is being stolen and have a bit of proof. My opinion is go to the shop in person, ask to see the car and whats going on with it, and explain to him it's taking too long and would like an actual date of when it can be finished otherwise you would like to have the car towed back to your house to complete it yourself.
  6. Where's my Photo Gallery?

    I do now I'm retarded. I used to see it in the drop down tab now I just have to actually go into my profile. Love the new look of everything!
  7. Where's my Photo Gallery?

    I don't see the tab for my photo gallery in my profile area with the server update. Am I missing something?
  8. JDM tail lights not connecting to US 240Z

    Correct, that's what my JDM harness plugs look like.
  9. JDM tail lights not connecting to US 240Z

    No the JDM connectors just differ from the US versions.

    Got the OBD1 consult plug wired in and ordered a PLMS USB Adapter with the Nissan Data Scan program. I installed everything on a spare laptop which will just be for the Z now which will have FSM's for the 240z and R34 on it. Extremely happy with how this turned out. It's a great tool to have especially if I attempt the ITB route.
  11. High fuel pressure after fuel pump swap..

    Ok last question hopefully. I ran the new fuel return to the 3/8 vent nipple above the fuel sender. I've got the 1/4" rubber line that was for the original vent hard line running to the unused little fuel return line. My question is what do I do with the 3/8 vent tube I removed from the top of the tank? Does that just need to vent to atmosphere somewhere now?
  12. Exciting news! I just got a 240Z race car!

    I would just leave it as is. Keep it vintage!
