  1. Shortened CV Driveshats in MMS flange package?

    Ophier claimed supplier sent long shaft, now waiting for short shaft replacement. I thought after mkt only fabbed short shaft, otherwise use stock

    GTECH, Thanks for details your experience. Wow, 6 months, Summer will be over Wonder if Checkered Flag is their fabricator?
  5. Any one know source? Whitehead Performance has had my 300ZX Turbo driveshaft for 6 months. Repeated attempts to get status have failed. Take care, beware.
  6. Short Z31T CV shafts group buy

    Still available? Another lot buy?
  7. 1978 280z 3.1L Turbo LDS Parting Out

    Excellent build very similar to mine. Need your Z31 axle shafts. Please advise availability. Thanks
  8. L6 turbo tube header

    Just found another fabricator who quoted $2500 off the bat in single lots using sked 10 304SS including water cut head flange. Any chance of sourcing head flange here? Wud save $200.
  9. Changed using Stone gasket with no coatings applied. Did not fire yet, but after a few weeks noticed beads of coolant and block moist. Appears to be leaking at block side interface on both sides of block, but primarily on plug side near middle. Suspected condensate, but weepage stopped after coolant drained. Both head and block are straight. Using ARP studs. Gasket lifted off block and stuck to head. Have tried FelPro and stock graphite gaskets and they both weeped. The FelPro actually dripped coolant. Never had problems with previous design asbestos gasket. It had a pressure sensitive coating that adheared well and did not weep. I suspect the composite material is not water proof (paper) or does it require heat to seal? Block scraped, scottbrited and wiped with mineral spirits and acetone to dry as prep. Survey of posts had one where thin film of RTV was applied around coolant passages. Never heard feedback on that procedure. This seems to be a common problem with the new composite gaskets. Head and block is N42 from '76 280Z 1 What is best gasket to use? Some have thin fire rings which would not match my o-rings on block (ITW) Others don't have the metal seal for the oil galleys. Have not tried the Beck-Arnley, since both were damaged. 2 What is best coating, if any? Tried Hylomar with some success. Have not tried Permatex Copper Cote.
  10. L6 turbo tube header

    Solution to last my last post found. Austin Hoke may be able to fab CNC flange with integral transition.
  11. L6 Header thermal blanket

    Should have pics this week with pricing
  12. L6 turbo tube header

    Fabricator challenged at adapting round tube to square port. Is there a header flange available here? I thought I recall someone had fabricated one for use in building a tube header.
  13. L6 turbo tube header

    Getting another estimate for custom fab tube header using 304SS sch 40 fittings for divided turbine and external wastegate to accommodate TO4 or GT35 tangential turbine. Please advise interest.
  14. L6 Header thermal blanket

    Currently having thermal blanket fabricated for my L28 N42 cast exh manif used on my custom turbo. Utilizes wire hooks and Velcro to mount and clear stock intake. Material is first rate typically used on turbos and having a gold fabric appearance. Will advise price based on completion of prototype and interest.
  15. Cometic MLS - copper coat or not....

    Where did you get that Cometic MLS? thought they couldn't make due to lack of volume sales. What is bore? How much $? Heard Kaminari makes one but 89mm bore.
