  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Wako 75S cam

    Here is a pic of the 75s I saw on a Japanese build blog awhile back. Quite the profile.
  5. 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.
  6. You can only remove the outer venturis through the front of the carb, and yes, you will need to remove the inner venturis as well to do so. Chances are good that you will trash the inner venturi gaskets when removing, so I would go ahead and order 6 new ones - they are only a buck each, so no biggie. I would STRONGLY recommend removing the carbs from the intake manifold to do this work, as it will be close to impossible to install the inner venturi and gasket with them mounted. What does your engine build look like? Mostly stock, or? Any other question, feel free to ask. I've spent a lot of time with these carbs over the past few years and am very familiar with them at this point, happy to share any knowledge I can.
  7. RyanT67's 240Z

    There hasn't been a whole lot to update on here this Summer. I've been driving the car very regularly and logged a few thousand miles without any issues - the car is running well and I'm having a blast! One small update is the new battery I am now running though. I somehow managed to win "viewers choice" in a local car show that was sponsored by Braille, and the prize was a B2317 battery. GOOD PRIZE!!! The thing is pretty tiny, weighs just 17lbs, and according to the sheet that came in the box it's rated for around 750CCA. I wasted no time throwing it in the car. I'm sure some folks will no doubt take exception to me cutting up a super-duper-mad-rare series 1 jack cover here, but trust me when I say that it was pretty beat up anyway. Either way, the install looks pretty tidy to me! The old AGM battery I had behind the seat weighed 45lbs and was large enough to limit how far the passenger seat could roll back on the seat rails. With the Braille, I have lost 28lbs, and it's small enough that the passenger seat can slide all the way back again. Quite pleased! I've also attached a couple more pics of the car, just because...
  8. Mystery Big Valve Ported N42 Head.

    I'd get it flowed somewhere locally at 25 or 28 inches. If you have a stock head, get them to do that as well for a baseline. Then at least you can have numbers on a comparable scale to what others do. I'd expect the head to perform well though, fingers crossed for you!
  9. It's always a treat reading updates on your build. Those are some strong numbers already, with room for even more power with some extra jetting tweaks. Good stuff! Tidy work on the exhaust line. I'm surprised you're only running what looks like an 18" long 5" round muffler - must really scream at WOT!! The strut bracing looks great too.
  10. Mikuni 44 PHH Plated Hardware Kits

    Bump, back in stock. The kits are slightly different to the ones pictured in the original post - for the air horns they use locking nuts instead of lock washers and nuts. Here are some pictures of what I have:
  11. Who's s30 with Carbon Fiber Hood Louvers ??? (PIC)

    Those look really great and I bet they'll work very well, nicely done!
  12. Compare your Dyno sheets HERE

    Rebello's numbers are crank.
  13. Awesome, congrats!!! Looking forward to reading about how the chassis dyno goes. Still lots of good weather left for you to enjoy the car before Winter as well!

    RE: Ads Perhaps I'm in the minority on this matter, but I adblock whitelisted this site (to allow ads to display) years ago. The ads displayed are unobtrusive and minimal - a few banners, no more. I get that some sites are overladen with ads and it's overwhelming and obnoxious, hiding content and worse. Hybridz isn't one of those sites. I'm not sure that yearly fund drives will prove sustainable, so it's a small price to pay to ensure the site stays up in my opinion. That's said, having a paid membership level that opts out of ads? Great idea!
  15. HybridZ may be shutting down.

    Hmm, it's truly great to see folks digging deep to help save the site. I'll pitch in shortly as well. But let's also see if we can help solve some of the problems and keep the site sustainable for the long term. Some thoughts: 1] Would trimming old deadweight topics help any by saving server space? 2] Would disabling sections of the site that aren't really used help at all, such as the gallery and garage functions? 3] Is it possible to put up an adblock detection wall, requiring users to disable it or whitelist the site? 4] Is it possible to reach out to Z car part suppliers and form a sponsorship program with them through the site? They pay a set fee and get ad space and forum space to sell their goods. That's just off the top of my head. At the end of the day, this list has to be kept sensible though, and not create a large amount of additional work for the administration team. The site is provided as a service to the community after all, and not to provide profit/income.
