  1. What EMS system to use for RB26DETT

    Building an R34 RB26DETT with an NEO R34 Transmission to put in my 1972 Nissan Fairlady 240Z. I am not a car guru or anything like that, I just trust the technical information in this forum. Can some one suggest what EMS system to use. I've been considering buying the APEXI Power FC, it has a corded controller to program engine performance. Haltech and others need a computer hookup and software to program. I don't know what information I need to supply about the engine upgrades to make this determination. New Tomei Turbos 8260's, Okeida Plasma coil Packs, 800cc injectors, 1mm oversized valves, Nismo N1 crankshaft, Tomei exhaust manifolds and dump pipes, 90mm throttle body, New Intake, Fuel rails, Bosch high flow fuel pumps X2, looking to get between 5-600 horsepower. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  3. Let me try and explain the differences the way I understand it. The stock suspension set-up on the Z car is a strut system, the spring sits on a perch and is non adjustable, you also have a strut cartridge (non adjustable) in the tube to rebound the car when you hit bumps and potholes. In a coil-over set up your spring is usually a smaller diameter spring that sits on an adjustable perch which allows you to adjust spring tension to give you a stiffer or softer ride when you hit bumps and potholes also the strut cartridge is also adjustable to help give you better ride control. (The way you talked about how your car bounced when you shifted). I am in the process of a total restoration of my 1972 Nissan Fairlady 240Z RHD. I chose to go with the XYZ coilover, they needed to be welded to the spindles. I chose to go with them from reading reviews and the price around $1,000.00. Hope this helps

  7. R34 RB26DETT ignition immobilizer bypass

    http://www.skylinesaustralia.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=123136
  8. I purchased an R34 RB26DETT to put in my 1972 Nissan Fairlady 240Z RHD. While reading up on the R34 it seems to have an ignition immobilizer on it. Was wondering if anyone else has done this swap and what was their solution to bypass the ignition immobilizer. Is it just locating the pin(s) on the ECU and bypassing them or is there another solution for this problem? Thanks in advance for all who help on this issue

  12. are catalytic converters required

    Hello HybridZ forums: I have been collecting parts for my 1972 Fairlady 240Z RHD build for the past year or so. Wanted to amass majority of the parts before undertaking this build. I have acquired an R34 RB26DETT engine with an R34 RB25DET NEO 5 speed transmission. I want to go with a twin 2 1/2" exhaust system, searched the exhaust forums and could not find out if catalytic converters and O2 sensors are needed or required. Please understand I am not a mechanic I am just trying to gather info to complete my HybridZ. Any insight would greatly be appreciated thank to all for your input in advanced.
  13. What turbos will work on rb26 manifolds?

    I purchased the Tomei arms 8260 turbo kit. the kit provides all the water and oil cooling lines, gaskets complete direct bolt on replacement. The turbo's are rated @ 650 hp. Cost about $2800.00 shipping included.
  14. 2013 CV Shaft Conversion Options

    modern-motorsports.com (MMS) is still i business you need the hyphen in the name to access the website. I'm running the R200 clsd out of a 87 300zxt with the cv axels, using MMS Z31 companion flanges with the 5 lug set-up also from MMS. Looked @ the sites you referenced and MMS prices are a bit cheaper but Ross the owner of MMS is a bit slow on processing orders not taking orders but processing them for shipment. Hope this gives you another option.
