  1. TrackZpeeds CXRacing LS1 T56 240z

    Last race of the season for me tomorrow. I didn't get to run as much as I'd like..... family comes first but I was consistently top 5 on street tires. I'll post video when the day is done and post updates on my axle and suspension swap in the off season. Still love this car.... LS swap was the best car decision I've made in a very long time. Jim
  2. Anyone want to add new and updated info to this list? After I completed my swap, it's too hard to keep up with all of the changes out there, but this list can still be helpful for many JCI- Way more positive feedback than not.... Difficult fitment seems to related more to a tired Z-car than kit quality. Works with JTR headers and low mount alternator location. Very complete kit with a build manual (although some feel manual is not that great) and most of the goodies to get your LS1 Z on the road. A proven kit all in all. Dingo- Does work with JTR and CX headers and no change to steering rod.... Trans mount is a pick of everyone else. Uses stock Z mount locations for good support but needs a high mount alternator bracket to work.... Dingo, speedway, and others sell the bracket for less that $200... Ive also posted a link to "nasty z28" for a cheap high mount alternative. Easy motor mount install but after that your on your own to figure out the rest. With the Hybrid community, it is very doable. CXR- I have a complete build with this kit in a 240z, and it was a pretty easy journey for me with hand tools in my garage.... Measure 10X and install once. check my build log for more info. CX keeps adding to their kit for completeness.... Currently with all mounts and full exhaust with LT headers. I am using a low mount alternator without clearance issues. I chose a custom Y back 3inch exhaust.... saved some $ and had my choice of muffler. Rumor has it that CX is working on a driveline as well for their kit, I cut down my aluminum Camaro shaft . The headers are angled to work with their Y pipe so take that into consideration if you buy those alone. Hawks- Only works with their LT headers from what I can tell....... They offer a trans mount that welds in versus all the other bolt ins... I love to have some feedback from a completed and running build. Hokes performance: beautiful stuff.... Don't know of any complete builds or cost, but worth looking into if your serious about your car. According to his site, the Cxr long tube headers work with his mount kit. DIY- Cheap and easy but you need to dial in placement. I'm leery of Z frame unibody strength not tied to a crossbar. Quite a few have been done with success so I would love to hear some feedback from hard driver / track guys.
  3. I believe the CX racing headers work with Hokes kit....... It's been awhile since I communicated with Austin hoke but I recall the CX and hawkes both work with his mounts... Not 100% on that. I'm getting to dang old to remember this stuff lol. I also believe that info is in the "facts not opinion" LS swap thread. Jim
  4. Ls6 swapped 240z

    I'm using the stock volt meter with LS1..... I didn't do anything special though. My harness from wiring specialties required a hot, a ground and a keyed hot to hook up and I grabbed all that from the engine bay. When I fired it up the voltmeter worked like stock. Maybe I was just lucky?.... Not sure if that helps your dilemma. Jim

    These are the larger 108mm 930cv joints. They should hold up fine for my LS1 swap... I'm putting down around 350 to the wheels so no worries. I went with the DSS half shafts cause I used there 300M stub axles with 108 mm 930 companion flanges which was my concern for failure on the track. I believe the R200 CLSD diff stub will hold up fine too. I'm not a 1/4 mile guy and I rarely if ever perform dump clutch burn outs. AutoX and road course for me..... And I can roast the tires any time I please with my right foot only. I've only worked with Mike at DSS..... He initially gave me the "we'll get it figured out and working" line, but has since offered no real solutions and failed to answer numerous emails since. At this point, I don't trust them to half ass this thing so I'm going to fix it right myself. Jim

    There is a design problem with the DSS adapters. DSS didn't mill them to bolt up from the inside of the CV however provided hardware with nyloc nuts to bolt through the adapter and nut up on the backside of the diff stub axle flange. There is no way that works with the limited space. The button heads from the stubs pressed into the axle are already very limited on space. Multiple contacts to DSS for a fix of the problem and I'll I got was "get shorter bolts" and "we've never seen studs pressed into the stub axle like that". For the amount of money I paid for this "bolt on no fab solution" this is really pathetic..... when I tear is all down this winter I'll have it machined myself and it will work fine. Just giving the community a buyer-beware for the DSS product and crappy service from their so called Tech. To be fair, everything else DSS provided is top notch.

    Torque, I don't know, but I believe 800 Hp.
  8. Can you tell me the name of this wide body kit?

    Looks like jim cook racing.
  9. If I remember right, that UBolt is necessary for rack stability. Just my .02. Progress looks great and car is coming along nicely. Jim

    Axles arrived. These are so stout! Great off season project getting all of this installed. Updates will follow.
  11. I'm running the technoversion with their standard rubber bushing/block in ls1 Z and it works great with the CLSD R200
  12. 78 280Z LS3 Project

    Congrats. That's a long haul. Jim
  13. TrackZpeeds CXRacing LS1 T56 240z

    T3 has had this design for awhile. They are pretty bullet proof.
  14. TrackZpeeds CXRacing LS1 T56 240z

    Waiting for my 300M stub axles and 108mm 930 cv half shafts to arrive. I'll change it all out this winter and she should be bullet proof. I almost converted to 8.8 rear end but I'm in so deep to what I've got, and it works so well, I decided to run all of this instead. One of the great Z vendors is putting the finishing touches on a complete 8.8 kit that will be super trick..... But I can let his cat out of the bag just yet. Keep your eyes and ears open......
