  1. That second video captures the sound better than anything I've done. He used a Gopro 7 and although the video is washed out the audio is really good. It is the most accurate capture so far. I've been using my iphone and even with external microphones it never quite got the right sound.
  2. I am in envy of your car. Or at the very least your engine compartment:)
  3. Here is another one he sent me.
  4. SN005 posted this on Church of L group on face book. He's happy:)

    EDIS Setup for 280z

    Shameless plug. EDIS Kit
  6. I wonder if that was to increase runner length or packaging issues.
  7. Hi Duffy That is probably the longest the manifolds can be with the engine tilted that direction.
  8. Realized I never posted this pic of SN005. The Ferrea rockers look amazing. Jenvey 48mm and a Megasquirt setup from Linfert Performance.
  9. Thanks. Yea the S7 looks so nice. The 8620 looked great with the copper plating but not so great after spending time in hot oil. The best part about the S7 is it's through hardened so as long as there is enough base circle you can regrind it.
  10. I'll do COP when my $200.00 Magnecor wires wear out. And then only if they look like plug wires:)
  11. Making progress. Almost at the point where I can test the oil system. Front covers on. Internal lines finished. Externals as well. Getting closer! Hopefully Monday I can start testing the oil volume/pressures.

    ITM piston valve relief depth

    Thanks for the info. I ended up going .240" at the deepest section of the intake. There was .440" of meat in that area. The valves are angled at 15 degrees so the depth lessens very quickly. The problem I'm going to have is there isn't enough piston diameter at 87mm for there to be a decent amount of material. I imagine everyone that runs one of these heads will at least have 88MM or better bores and probably custom pistons.
  13. Thanks. The zig zag lets you adjust the length of the line for final tweaking. That one was a little more pronounced than I would have liked but it's hidden so I left it. Even a single bend will give you some options.
  14. Exterior hard lines finished. Got everything fabed up. Very happy with the results. I added a sandwich adapter in order to be able to get more oil for the VCT. The oil pressure port was fine for the cam oil feeds but I felt it would not keep up with the VCT. I moved everything over to the sandwich plate. The oil pressure switches are still on the oil pressure port. Rear oil feed. Hard lines are a ton of effort but for me well worth it.
