  1. Looking For S30 Whale Tail

    Hello fellow HybridZers, I'm looking for a whale tail for the S30s, hopefully in better condition than not. Willing to pay shipping from anywhere in the US, I am located in 92691. My phone is the best way to reach me, text or call. 949-939-7573. Thank you for your help in advance!
  2. 240z 1uzfe Turbo

    http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/124657-ohkaz-turbocharged-1uz-280z/ Not sure if he is finished, but there are other turbo 1UZ builds out there. I only checked hybridz, no other sites.
  3. Where did you mount your aftermarket fuse block?

    If you are using an aluminum dash, I personally like having easy access to it on either the transmission tunnel, or higher up behind the dash, centered, attached to the back of the wiper motor/linkage area. Mine is bolted through the linkage area, so that the interior is cleaner, but still have easy access to it just by looking underneath the dash. Assuming you are using an original dash, I like having them on the drivers side kick panel area, that way I dont have to lean across to the passenger side to replace fuses. Center console area maybe? I dont have a picture of my aluminum dash setup currently, but I am happy to take one and figure out how to post it on here, if there is interest.
  4. rebello 3.0l take off

    Rebello does a great job! Sounds great
  5. Rear brake conversion help and advice.

    Stock rear brakes are drum brakes. If you search around, you'll find there are a number of rear disc brake options. I'm fairly certain there is a sticky about rear disc brake conversion setups... try looking for the 240sx caliper setups because theyre certainly cheaper. $500-600 is the ballpark for the cheaper rear disc setups. How about post some pictures? No one can tell you how good/bad your floor pans or any other parts look, without seeing good quality pictures. If ye search, ye shall find!
  6. Planning on a 2012 Chevy LFX engine transplant-need help

    Neat engine swap! You probably are the first to swap one in. As far as the cradle goes (and im no expert, so just an opinion), mounting it from the top should be fine as long as you use bushings. Solid mounting increases vibration throughout the car. I have seen the motor mounts/towers from the original cross member cut off many times when a new cross member is used, which (I think) answers your question about the alternator and AC compressor. May be worth trying to make the AC work... since you have the compressor, you could probably source other Camaro AC components? Up to you and your goals obviously. Good luck with finding the candidate car!
  7. How much are you wanting for the 260z wiper motor and linkage? I read and re-read the original post, and I must be going crazy if it is posted up there lol. I wish i was on earlier for the carbs :/ Oh well
  8. 3800/T5 swap started

    Hate to bump an older thread... but are there any updates? Super cool swap, but no one is attempting the stock supercharger setup?
  9. What are you using as a tow vehicle?

    I have an 07 Toyota Sequoia, which I found to be an excellent tow vehicle when I needed to retrieve my 280z. I left it up in Castaic overnight so I could locate a trailer. 100 miles up with trailer unloaded, 100 miles back loaded; it was a breeze. Rear seats are removable, middle seats fold up, and I have slept in the back pretty comfortably. (Note: Im also 6'3"). Might be a little too large for your space, but its a few feet shorter in length than most pickups, and its dead reliable. But, like the Tundra pickup, it drinks. I get around 13mpg cruising at 70 on the highway... Older models are definitely in your price range. Hope this helps!
  10. Brand new BLACK 13.5" with horn button and adapter

    Bummer... If i hadn't bought my Commint 4 spoke recently I would have swooped in on this! GLWS
  11. Midnight Madness 560z...

    Cool build! Looking forward to more progress. I think the 45mm ITB way would be a rewarding way to go... just more expensive. Im just a little biased towards ITBs
  12. L28 4bbl EFI build - help/input wanted!

    Hey Michael, I thought id chime in on cams since I recently had Rebello Racing (in Antioch, CA) do a regrind on a stock 280z cam for me into their 63D cam. They did a great job, and offer a valvetrain setup consisting of reground cam, springs and lash pads for about $400, and I had them clean up my rocker arms too but i forgot the fee for that. I did send them a core cam though. I wouldnt recommend the 63D cam due to its longer duration and lift, but they have other 'streetable' options that would suit your needs. Compared to Schneider, I originally was going to spend $800+ on a cam, springs, retainers, rockers, lash pads and some lube. The reason i didnt go with Schneider was due to them not having lash pads at the moment, but im very happy with Rebello. Also, Ive looked into the Arizona Z car 4bbl intake setup and I feel it could be better... Ive read reviews from users that 1st and 6th cylinders dont receive enough fuel so those two run leaner. I cant speak from personal experience on it though, I went with triple webers for my setup! Haha. If I were in your situation and wanted EFI, I would rather get a 280z/ZX intake manifold and run supra injectors from a Pallnet or other aftermarket fuel rail, and have a different throttle body run by megasquirt. Theres obviously more to it, but I hope that gets the idea across because im falling asleep as I write this, lol. Megasquirt is quite the learning curve though, but I hope this helps you decide upgrades for your Z!
  13. My not so Fairlady Z...VH Swap

    Awesome build! Im no Z32 guy but man this Z will scream! I love the vh45 platform, I expect great results and hopefully a video or two of it running/on the dyno
