    280zx door seal weatherstripping alternative?

    I have an 280zx 83' and remember found a thread saying the kia sportage works, got a pair and its not amazing but it kinda worked lol https://www.kiapartsnow.com/genuine/kia-wthstp-frt-door~0k01858760b.html (i think) and the rest of the weatherstripping was from https://zcarsource.com/weatherstrip-kit-280zx-82-83-coupe-no-t-tops-new

    2jz vvti with a cd009 (350z tranny)?

    Yeah from the looks of it, I'll probably go the collins route, thanks for being very informative I appreciate it. I couldn't find an ar5 here, but I guess i'll just try the cd009, thank you for your input. I don't think i'd ever go twin plate tbh, knowing I wont even go over 450hp, but I did find the SPEC clutch you were talking about, they make it for the Mavrick kit. Thank you. rb25 tranny costs the same as an r154 here.. and well cd009 seems more money efficient for me, thank you.

    2jz vvti with a cd009 (350z tranny)?

    Oh cool, didn't know another company made an adapter kit, thanks for mentioning that, I'll compare both Maverick and Collins and later on see wether I'm more comfortable with machining the housing or not. Thanks for clearing things up, I really didn't know about the shifter linkage relocation, not sure if I should actually order that, since you're talking about an S30 and mines an S130, I remember both cars have different dimensions. I'm kind of concerned about the drive shaft though, but hopefully i'd find a shop that would make a custom one, the nismo short shifter looks cool xD. R154's are selling for $1200+ here, hopefully scrap shops don't know much about the cd009 and I can get them for cheap.

    I thought of that, but several mechanics said they wont do that, and I don't really have the time, tools or even the experience to do it. The shop that fit my engine and tranny told me its best I get another r154 but the price has gone severely up not to mention I couldn't find any r154's, hence why I thought of going with a cd009.
  8. Hey hybridz, hopefully this is the right place to post it. I spent quiet a while(2 months and going) looking for an r154 after mine broke, but no luck, so I read people started doing the cd009 swap, and I have searched online for this topic but I couldn't understand much it, it wasn't as clear as I thought it would be. I know Collins sell an adapter kit, but I also read that it needs to be cut to fit, but do I need more than just an adapter? I really want something as close as a bolt on as an r154 and as for power I'm willing to hit the 500-550whp this winter, any help would be appreciated. The tranny would go on a 83' 280zx. Thanks

    Accuair on a 280zx?

    Haha yeah Bruce was one of the 280zx's that I saw. I'll look at that facebook group and probably ratsun. Thanks again
  10. Hello Hybrid Z I own an 83' 280zx with a 2jz vvti, its going through a restoration now, I have most parts for the restoration, just missing on suspensions and wheels and it would be done. I was going to go with the techno toy tuning front coil kit and s13 for the rear, but a friend of mine, told me about accuair, and I kinda kept thinking about them, they looked cool and the idea grew on me. I contacted accuair and they said they don't have a kit for a 280zx just 300zx (90's) and s14. I saw two people with 280zx accuairs, but unfortunately they didn't reply to me when I asked them how they did it, so I thought I would get help from here, maybe someone knows who did this build or not. I'm wondering if I get s14 kit the rear would be bolt on, just worried about the front , and I dont know if this would be of relevance but i'll go with watanabe F 16 x 8.5 -5 R 16 x 9.0 -13 . I also thought of going through the the techno toy suspensions and s13/14 then change the springs to bags maybe..? Thank you
  11. Hey there, If anyone has all the emblems as well as the hub caps for the 1983 280zx N/A(T-Top), preferably chrome and not the gold color in pretty good condition, I would like to buy them. Payment will be through paypal, I have an address in the states. Thanks.
