    240z Seats

    Thanks for your interest, but not, unless you have some convenient (for me) method in mind 😁. Also seems like it would be cost prohibitive seeing how it can be $100+ to ship them in the continental US.

    240z Seats

    Up for sale are a pair of good condition recovered 240z seats. These are in good condition but not perfect as you can see in the pictures. $200 for the pair, pick up preferred but will ship if there is interest. OBO if picking up, firm +shipping if shipped.

    Transmission leak

    I don't think it matters too much, just some sort of grease to protect the seal from wear on start-up. Some seals come prelubed so you don't have to add it.

    Transmission leak

    Could be, check it Could be and it's easy enough to replace You'll need to remove it if you have to replace the seal. Just unbolt the drive shaft at the differential and pull it out of the transmission. Be sure to grease the seal before you reinstall the drive shaft.

    Turbine size matters

    I believe I said this on another thread but your adapter is a very clever design. I have a very similar setup as you including a .62 turbine T3 housing but with a first generation GT35R. I'm thinking I probably have the same issue as you but haven't driven it enough to know. If anybody has a Garrett GT3576R .82 T3/v-band turbine housing, let me know and I will take it off your hands :).

    Turbine size matters

    Your issue sounds similar what big-phil experienced back in 2009 except you aren't hearing the turbo flutter as he was. The solution, as recommended by Tony D was to go with a .82 turbine.

    Leon's Other 260Z

    That's what I figured! But he did turn it around pretty quickly. The cheapo scanner I have at work takes quite a bit of time to turn into a good solid.

    Leon's Other 260Z

    So cool indeed! I'm curious what scanner you used and how much labor was burned creating the solid model.

    Very cool, thanks for sharing! I have the impression that it is an expensive process to develop the tooling for casting. Is that not the case anymore.i don't expect that I would produce very many of these. Cheers, Ross

    Welcome! Very nice car!

  13. That's good to know!
  14. Stokked, Welcome to Hybridz! That seems high but I haven't priced an engine build since 2008. For reference, my Rebello (Google it) built long block wasn't much more than $5K back in 2008 for a long block build with forged internals, custom cam and mildly ported head. You can do the math. I'd recommend shopping around, and be sure to read about HZ member experiences with California Datsun. I believe they used to be called Datsun Parts. Good luck with that! Not personally, but search around there are quite a few people who have paid for their services. Search and form your own opinion about California Datsun, a.k.a Datsun Parts. Talk to Rebello Racing (or read more HZ) and get ready to open your wallet. You won't be able to run pump gas with that kind of compression. It's all here, right at your fingertips. I certainly don't have the time or will to spoon feed information maybe some other nice soul will. FWIW, the best way I've found to search Hybridz is to open a new tab, go to Google type in your search term followed by "site:hybridz.org". For example "250hp l24 site:hybridz.org" results in this post: Lots of good information in there. Good Luck!!!!

    Ross' Sleeper Z

    I developed a 280zxt rotor cap for my car. I'm considering printing/selling more. Let me know what you think! Here is version 1.0, test fit on the dizzy. I didn't spend much time making it look good, just testing the fit. Turns out it fit perfectly. Here is version 1.1 as-uploaded to my print queue. I spent a lot of time sketching the "Z" and optimizing the look. My printer is a Markforged Mark Two. The material will be Onyx, a chopped carbon infused nylon. I'm not sure how well it will stand up to engine heat. My other option is Stratasys ABS although, if I sell these I'll farm them out so there are many other options including metal. They could also be machined but the Z will be difficult to produce correctly due to the tiny radii. Any feedback is appreciated!
