  1. Probably not going to happen:) Actually V2 is a one of a kind head. V3 and V4 are virtually identical except for some adjustments to gating and wall thicknesses. V2 in visually different and totally unique. He also ended up with 2 valve covers and three timing covers since they only fit that head:)
  2. Well I hope to be making them for a good long time:) HP specs are based on estimations by Rebello since there are currently no running heads. V2 hasn't even been assembled yet since he decided to retire, build a custom house and shop and put a twin cam head on his Z car all at the same time. Hopefully that will be moving along soon. V3 is moving forward but slowly since it is only a small part of a comprehensive engine/car build.
  3. Thanks. It's kind of cool having a stack of DOHC castings sitting on the floor.
  4. Santa was late but better late than never:) Went down to the foundry and pored the remaining 4 heads right before the holiday break. Went down and picked them up a couple days ago. Next stop Ohio for hot isostatic pressing.
  5. L28 head 3D scan, flow, CNC

    Decent price is the sticking point. Even if you are starting with a raw casting the amount of machining is still pretty significant. A Mazworx 2JZ billet block is $9000.00 FYI.
  6. HybridZ may be shutting down.

    I would love to see a donation bar showing how much is still needed for the year. Also whatever is causing people to not show up as a donating member needs to be fixed if it hasn't already. Derek
  7. New 370Z Category?

    I personally think it is a good idea. They are Z cars and they are doing hybrid type work. Derek
  8. EFI newb advice/question maybe ITBs?

    One thing to consider is to hire a tuner to dial it all in. I had Jeff Linfert setup and tune my DOHC with ITBs and he did it all via email. Spending a little money up front getting things setup by a pro and then learning how to tweak may save you some frustration and get you on the road a lot quicker. I would find one in your area if you want to do dyno tuning as well. Derek

    Search on hybridz for speedhut gauges. I love mine.
  10. Retap oil pressure vs adapter?

    Here is one from mcmaster carr. BST NPT adapter
  11. Tuning VVT-i with megasquirt II

    The word I got from my tuner is you need a MS3 unit to control VCT. There really isn't a lot out there about VCT/VVT with mega squirt. Miata conversions seem to be the most popular.
  12. VCT cam cores are finished. Really happy to have this behind me. I had one set of S7 blanks so there was no room for error. Cross drilling VCT control circuit. Talk about butt clenching. Sounds a little crispy as the drill bit breaks through the other side. S7 tool steel is some pretty tough stuff. Finished VCT circuit. Still have to deburr the holes. Here is a video of the finish pass ending on lobe 6 and starting on lobe 2. I finish them in the firing order so I don't get confused. The noise in the background are 2 other machines that I'm coding and running at the same time so I try and keep things simple:) Next they'r off to Crane for heat treating and OD grinding.
  13. L24 Crank Damper Replacement Options

    The dual pulley is what's going to mess you up for aftermarket. Probably rebuilding your existing damper is going to be the cheapest route. FYI I sell a 36:1 kit and sensor mount. EDIS Kit for $220.00
  14. Thanks for the info. Probably going to stick with the local guy for now. He's five minutes away and that is nice.
  15. How to mount an EDIS wheel for $0.75

    Not sure what your budget is but I sell a kit that will work with some dampers. $220.00 plus shipping. EDIS Kit
