    Use of a torque plate?

    It's not that. The torque plate simulates the head. You don't put the head on without a gasket. For that reason, you don't put a torque plate on without a gasket, as it's no longer accurately simulating the head.

    A gasket between the torque plate and motor is required. If you've got a new mls gasket use it. The risk there is it getting damaged, being clamped and reclamped later with the head isn't a big deal.

    It's absolutely worth doing. You can rent one from Suprastore, and it's a pretty painless process. Just be sure to save the old head gasket to use with the plate.
  4. If you don't care about weight get steel lug nuts. Aluminum ones will have issues over time and nothing is more frustrating than having the threads on your aluminum lug nut strip. Muteki and Gorilla are easy to find in multiple colors and are made of steel. Personally I'd avoid red anodized ones, they turn pink after some time in the sun.

    Rb26dett and AC?

    There's a pretty good write up someone did with a vintage air unit. Personally I'd buy that unit and have the lines made to go from your RB compressor to it. http://xenonzcar.com/s30/files/DatsunZ_Vintage_Air_1000.pdf
  6. Yeah it's a ymmv thing with the bre spoiler. Mine got a tiny chip in one of the corners due to shipping. I'll fill it in and sand it before painting but it depends on how perfect you want it. I'm aiming for 10ft good (looks perfect from 10ft+ distance).

    Electric Power Steering Information Compiled

    You just don't run the PS pump until you've got a rack to connect it to. Poke around in the engine sub forums and you'll get a pretty good idea of what people are doing.

    For me to go hydro it's literally just a matter of add rack and you're good to go. Making the lines is easy and my motor came with a pump. That's the biggest factor. Those of us with motor swaps can usually clear the PS pump hurdle automatically.
  9. Huh, didn't know that. Their 'copy' is the only current one I've seen with all the mounting studs though.

    I really hate you for posting this, and I hate myself for clicking on the thread. I've started assembling the parts I need for hydro, but now I'm calling around sourcing the parts for electric. Thanks for making it a bit easier/harder to choose. 🙄
  11. No mods to fit those wheels. Also, BRE is selling their spoiler. They are the ones who designed the original one back in the 70's for usually less than the not so great copies. http://www.bre2.net/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=020B03&Category_Code=bre_datsun_body_parts

    1.2JZ into a 280Z build.

    Gearbox fun continues. Removed the stock transmission mounts on the car. Need to at least buy the correct shift rod. The current one is too long to let the Magnum housing seat all the way. So no test fitting for a bit.

    The Suprastore manifold is basically a copy of what I'm using with the option to use whatever wastegate you want, or none if going with an EFR turbo.

    Greddy large runner manifold from their T88 turbo kit. I cut the 4 bolt wastegate flange off and welded a 50mm v-band on it.

    1.2JZ into a 280Z build.

    More progress on this stupid gear box. Finally found a shop that can help, they're quite unsurprisingly in Australia. They hooked me up with an input shaft which I'll have in my hands sometime next week. Also, after more comparing, my tail housing, per Tick Performance, is one they've never seen before, but all the castings on the Magnum when it comes to where stuff goes, lines up with what I've got. The only exception being the shifter rail, due to the better for me shifter placement. The TUET7270C gear box has an almost identical mainshaft, it's a tad under 20mm longer. Which matters not one bit, because you need a custom driveshaft when using one of these in a Datsun anyway. Here's a better set of pictures explaining why I think OverkillZ's picking up the late John C's mount is helpful. I'm running an almost bigboy turbo, and you can see the issues I'll run into as I start the downpipe and inlet for the turbo. The motor needs to lean towards the driver side if it's going to lean at all, and needs to shift more towards the driver's side.
