    RyanT67's 240Z

    Cheers Leon! Still need to get around to that, and I also have the new camshaft to swap in. Just been holding off on it. Hopefully by the end of this summer. Thanks! Yeah, I'm running a dual electric pusher fan at the front. The Griffin radiator I have is pretty thick, so space by the engine side is limited. Low profile fans don't seem to move much air unless you drop big money. No issues with cooling though, ever, so it's all good! Thanks! Yeah, the L can really be a beautiful looking engine under the hood. It's a fair bit more work to get high NA horsepower out of it though. It's all about goals I guess, I'm not trying to win races, just enjoy a cool old classic car and the odd track day for fun.

    RyanT67's 240Z

    For the most, yeah. The headlight buckets are still ever so slightly off, but the car is a driver, so I'm not going to sweat it too hard. The roof was fixed last October and the shop doing the work matched the paint for it and the rear quarters perfectly. Since I took the bumper and trim all off myself, they did a little extra work without charging me, so the rear arches were fixed up and repainted as well as the exhaust cut out. Pretty happy overall! Hoping to make it on out for Zfest this year - just need the weather to cooperate. Excited to see your car in person, Grannyknot!

    RPF1 Wheels

    You won't find anyone running those on a S30 as they aren't produced in a compatible bolt pattern or offset. Pity, as I do like them, they are lightweight, and the price is very reasonable.

    Well, I suppose I should probably update this as it's been awhile. Nothing too huge going on though, just some cosmetic fine tuning in the engine bay. - Replaced all the hardware with fresh yellow zinc plated - New plated water pump pulley, and block off plates. - Made a throttle cable bracket for the Mikunis and eliminated the j-arm that went to the firewall bracket. - Made a new heatshield for the carbs. Bit of a frankenstein's monster, but it seems to work. 2 sheet of aluminium, some Nimbus GII (waffle) between them, and reflective gold tape in the underside. It now mounts onto the front of the carbs via a custom bracket. Pain in the A to remove, but less visually intrusive and it made room for the throttle cable bracket. - Painted the strut bracing brackets matte black. - Removed blue anodising from some AN fittings. - New Magnecor KV85 ignition leads. It was fun buying the universal kit and being able to route them however I wanted. - Red wrinkle powder coated the valve cover. Reckon that's about it for the under the hood now. Very happy with how everything looks! Threw in a few shots of the car too, just for fun ,:)
  5. You could also grab one of these float level gauges. I did, and it works very well! http://lupinusflower.ocnk.net/product/58

    oer carburetors

    Two sites I know of sell them direct from Japan: OER Direct http://lupinusflower.ocnk.net/ and RHD Japan https://www.rhdjapan.com/search/engine/nissan_fairlady-z_s30-l28-09-1975-07-1978/model/nissan_fairlady-z/car/nissan/category/turbo-and-na-systems_throttle-bodies-or-intake-plenums-or-surge-tanks-and-parts
  7. Out of curiosity, what jets do SK carbs use? Are they proprietary and ordered from OER, or do they use Weber DCOE jets?

    E31 head price check

    Really depends on condition and how much they have been shaved. If unshaven and the water jackets all look to be in good condition, then $400-ish isn't unreasonable. 108mm is the stock height, head gasket mating surface to valve cover mating surface. Any idea who did the porting on the one? Throw up some pics!
  9. Thanks for being so upfront with the information sharing! It's interesting that the XDi supports hall sensors, as I was under the impression that only the XDi2 and XDi200 did. I've toyed with upgrading my XDi for just that reason, as the hall seems like a much more solid solution - zero chance of signal interference, and it's very difficult to avoid the spark plug wires, alternator and starter with our engine bay layout. Do you recall the serial number it was to check to see if you're below? I'm pretty sure mine will be too old as it's the same design as yours is... Have you considered upgrading to the newer XDi200 at all? It has onboard datalogging with lots of input channels, which would certainly be really useful for backroad carb tuning I would think. Some of the little extras like shift light control and the 3 programmable rev limiters might be useful as well. More money though, and the basic functionality is unchanged. Hope you get big numbers and lots of useful data on Friday, good luck!!
  10. The car looks absolutely perfect, so well executed. Congrats!!!

    Watanabe Photos

    I've got a few people I follow on instagram who are running Watanabe r-types in 15x8 et0. Whether the wheels are F or R-type shouldn't make a differences, since the same specs for width and offset will have the same fitment, so I'd definitely go with the R-types if I were you. Here you go: https://www.instagram.com/sennavsprost/ https://www.instagram.com/nerdy_s30/ https://www.instagram.com/huntershayes/ For what it's worth, regarding fitment, I run Volk TE37V's in 15x8 et0 with 225/50r15 Toyo R888R's and had to roll the rear arch due to rub - my 240Z is lowered about 2 inches.

    Rocky Auto Mirrors

    The SPA GT mirrors are quite similar, albeit a slightly different shape. http://www.spatechnique.com/store/itemDetail.cfm?prodID=700&catID=7 That car you posted being Japanese, I would suspect they are probably custom made for Rocky by "Craft Square". https://www.craftsquare.co.jp/top.html

    Don Potter Racing Cam?

    @theczechone The Isky cam I mentioned earlier in the discussion would be a good alternative. Less duration, so it keeps the powerband lower, but more lift. If you haven't already, I'd maybe give Isky a call after 2:30pm PST and speak with Ron Iskenderian. Really knowledge and helpful guy.

    Wako 75S cam

    Here is a pic of the 75s I saw on a Japanese build blog awhile back. Quite the profile.
  15. Going by your engine specs, I reckon it's definitely a good call to switch to 34's. You should certainly lose the stumble in doing so, and gain a little more driveability on the street. The jetting looks about right. I've been ordering jetting from Upgrade Motoring out of California. They have a good website that you can shop online through.
