  2. N42 Turbo Motor Build Questions

    Thanks for the replies - I'll have the machine shop move forward. Zhoob that was great info - thanks. TimZ - What have you done to your engine/what is power output? Thanks, B.
  3. Looking for some feedback on my plans. Current setup: F54/P90 280zx and turbo Megasquirt 2 - 440cc injectors Evo 8 intercooler 14psi 3" exhaust Goals - 300-350HP Use - 95% street car, with 1 track day per year Due to too many car projects and minimal car space I need to minimize the non-driveable cars. In order to do this I wanted to use the spare block that came with car when I bought it. I had it cleaned and inspected. It is an N42 block, the engine builder stated everything was in great shape except the rod journals that need .25mm to get back to in print clearances. He has suggested re-using the pistons that came out of the block given their good condition and has given me the part number for some Hastings piston rings for the NA block as a recommendation. Questions: Is there an issue with using the dished NA N42 Pistons with NA piston rings for the horsepower I'm looking for? Car seen here: and
  4. 5spd front cover lip seal

    Thanks for all the responses! Clear as day now. Bryan
  5. 5spd front cover lip seal

    the 2nd photo is how the last one came out. I didn't consider there being a taper that the seal actually mated up with. Any other votes for 2nd photo? B.
  6. 5spd front cover lip seal

    I am refreshing the seals/gaskets on my trans and when I pulled the lip seal out of the front cover it appeared to be in backwards. I've worked with reciprocating pumps for many years and the lip of the seal always points towards the fluid you want to keep in. When I pulled the seal out the lip of the seal was pointing towards the engine. Can someone confirm which direction is correct? Pictures show both sides of seal. Thanks, Bryan
  7. Shifter boot seal 5 speed

    Quick and easy question - I'm putting my trans back together, disassembled to reseal/gasket/oring to get rid of leaks, and wondered if there is supposed to be anything used to secure the boot that on the shifter: http://www.zcarsource.com/uimages/product_photos/clutch/1410169.jpg The factory manual doesn't show anything and there was a zip tie on it when I disassembled it. Wondering if it supposed to be sealing all on its own at the base or if others have used a hose clamp/CV boot clam or other. Thanks Bryan

  11. Recommend a racing helmet

    2 ways to look at it: 1. Get the latest SA 2015 or 2010 that you can. That way you're covered for any auto event anywhere for a longer period of time. http://www.racerpartswholesale.com/category/FullFaceHelmets Trade off is SA helmets should not be used for motorcycling - size of the eyeport being the usually sited downside. 2. If you're really confident you'll never venture outside of things that allow M2000+ and want a dual purpose helmet (what I currently have for autox and motorcycling) get an M helmet.
