  1. I have the GTX2 control arms. The car isn't running yet, but I can say the for perfect, look nice and stout, have plenty of adjustment, and the ladies love them. Not so sure about that last bit, but they do look fancy and of great build quality.
  2. I'll be using the Braille B3121 for my LS swap. Its a little less costly at around $230.

    Well, I haven’t figured out how to post website pics from this iPad, but the most common power steering delete belt routing I see has very little belt contact at the crank pulley. And the belt is really close to the alternator bracket bolt. Too close for my comfort, when I set mine up like that anyway. I am planning switch to the Low Alternator Mount from these guys http://lsbrackets.com/category/alternator-only-brackets/ Another solution would be an upper right mounted A/C compressor like the one that JCI sells, but that doesn’t help much if you weren’t planning to run A/C🤡

    How are you routing it now?

  6. r230 swap questions

    I’ve done the TTT R230 swap, though my car isn’t running yet. Yes, I had to trim and box the rear crossmember. Wish they mentioned that on the website, the original design did not require the trim. Tyler said they changed the design for a better driveline angle. The rear mustache bar had to be spaced back, as it didn’t clear the rear cover on the diff. I was unable to get a rear sway bar to fit. I tried 2 types, the MSA and the ST. The MSA didn't fit because of the Bad Dog rear frame rails, and the ST wouldn't clear the dogbone. I’ve seen the same picture of the twisted front mount. Don’t know what caused it but it is the only failure I’ve heard of. The TTT piece does look kinda weak
  7. This is exactly what I needed about a year ago. Looks like a good deal. But can you tell me about that cable mod to the adjusters on the fronts?

  9. Replacing dash with dash cover

    I just finished restoring my dash using the Polyvance stuff. I got most of the stuff for maybe 30% less from a company called urethane supply products, or something like that. You can search google just using the part numbers from the Polyvance stuff and you'll find this other company. It is clearly the same product with a different label. I think they had everything but the flextex. I'm very happy with how it turned out, but only time will tell how long it lasts. If you take the repair route, check very carefully for other areas that are very brittle, or spider cracks. Repair these areas too, or they will surely crack soon.
  10. LS1 240Z AC

    Resurrecting this from the past. I just received a Vintage Air Compact unit. I didn't realize there is no fresh air supply. Looks like I might be able to install the OEM fresh make up air damper, if I take it off the old heater fan motor. It would be pretty hard to get it to plumb directly into the Vintage Air unit, but would at least supply a source of fresh air to draw from when open. Anyone else do anything else like this?
  11. That is correct, they will not work in a 240z. At least not in my '71. Sorry I don't know all the differences between years but the '71 pods bolt in completely differently than what you see in the video Skillard put out on how to install these.
  12. Sold - These are brand new, never used, never mounted, brackets for mounting 4 1/2 Speedhut gauges in your 280z. I bought them hoping they would work to help instal my gauges in my 240z, but I was wrong. I paid $55.05 with shipping, and will ship them to you for $45. So, it's basically free shipping to you. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, Joe
  13. Looking for one of the smaller gauge pods. Wanting the pod in the front and the case in the case in the back, as well as the mounting bracket. Don't need the actual gauge parts, will be stripping them out anyway to make room for aftermarket gauges. Looking for what is pictured below, which is out of a '71. I don't know if later years are different.
  14. Sounds like fun. And yet more LSx S30's in Norcal.
