  1. Trouble setting timing after blown head gasket

    Yes if the valves are open when the piston is coming to TDC. Nope, collapsed lifters would cause the valves to not open all the way but still allowing pressure to build in the cylinder. How are you checking compression?
  2. Lost 3 lap pads

    Are any of the valve stems/caps damaged? Maybe the lifter backed all the way down, allowing the lash pad to slip out.
  3. Did you figure out what caused that wear on your old rockers? You must have had an oiling issue.
  4. You don't have to assuming you can get your wipe pattern set up correctly. That said, I replaced mine for good measure.
  5. Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    If you open up closed sections of the unibody like the sills and frame rails you'll find that they are most likely covered with surface rust so "rust free" is a relative term when talking about these old Datsuns! I may have missed it but did you do a thorough inspection for rust under the car? Frame rails and of course, floor pans are common areas for rust. I'm enjoying the videos! Keep it up! Cheers, Ross
  6. Header temperature

    I would just install a more quiet muffler. You might want to try wrapping your header with header wrap to keep engine bay temps down.
  7. FPR and Fuel Pressure Help

    3. As stated earlier, Aeromotive A1000 EFI Regulators are popular. I'm using one on my car. Whatever brand you get, you typically need one that is adjustable and has 1:1 vacuum/boost reference.
  8. Look for the thread in the L-series FAQs. Basically, cylinders #5 & 6 tend to be prone to detonation due to poor coolant circulation in that area of the head. The mod is to drill/tap holes on the driver's side of the head just above #5 & 6 exhaust ports then plumb those ports directly to the thermostat housing.
  9. Run a newer, efficient turbo & intercooler, good ecu, do the head cooling mod, smooth out the combustion chambers and deshroud the valves and I bet you'll be pushing 300 hp no problem.
  10. The note in the bottom left corner of this image. Now that I read it again, maybe it will work with all of the controllers listed.
  11. speedhut manual

  12. The gauge came calibrated for innovate. I'm not sure if it's user configurable. From the manual: Your wide band gauge is calibrated to work with Innovates 10-18 AF (.880-3.54volts). I'm not married to the gauge or controller but it'd be nice to have options.
  13. I have another question sorta related to the first one. Since my Speedhut gauge is set up for innovate lambda controller output, will a Spartan lambda controller work with my gauge?
  14. Thanks! It would seem like a pretty straightforward conversion from voltage to afr.
  15. I'm in the market for a datalogger and very interested in the iDash. Does the iDash basic support output from an LC1? Is the basic upgradeable to add O2 control?
