  1. Choosing a Camshaft, L31 engine.

    What kind of driving will you be doing? You want something pretty gnar, or just a bit of an upgrade?
  2. 1973 240Z with Chevy V8 - Monguuz

    I'm buying it... Just waiting to pick it up.
  3. 327 v8 240z. Swap or build?

    I've seen a few 300ZX's around the web with powered by an SBC... Below are a few links to help get you started. Having done a few s30 V8 conversions, which aren't exactly easy, I don't think the 300zx has the V8 parts support. Some modifcations/welding may be required. http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/39566-300zx-v8-breif-instructions http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/showthread.php?t=387884 http://www.johnscars.com/zcar/zcar.html (this site goes up to 280zx) Good luck!

    They had $30,000 in that turd???? Unbelievable.
  5. 260z JHR Conversion Question

    RebekahsZ nailed it. From what I see I'd guess you're probably closer to 275 hp. Around a 13s qtr mile. Good luck and congrats on the V8Z.
  6. The JTR tranny mount is fine, but I used the Motorsport one in my last build. It bolts into the transmission tunnel And is really rigid.
  7. interested in a small block chevy 280z?
  8. TPI 280zx

    I don't use a cable, but here is one from Motorsports Auto... http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic13/10-1862 No sure on the zx, but on the s30 there is a smaller metal arm on the firewall that turns when you press the gas pedal. I extended that with a small piece of metal, then hooked it up using a throttle connection rod. TH
  9. Does it fit a V8 Intake and work with the stock gauge? I bought a stock temp sender and went to the hardware store and found a 1/2 NPT that was wide enough in the center for the sensor to fit into. Then I JB Welded all around it. Looks great and works like a champ.
  10. Thanks jhm. I finished my Black 280z mid last year and all of my free time went into that. My golf score went up 10 strokes by the time I started playing again. I'll keep in Swift and Tein in mind, these springs are 280 lbs/in which is stout. SleeperZ - I wanted to just make sure these are what I wanted. Right now I can go back... I'll probably cut them off at some point, just wanted the option. These slicks fit under there nicely and could go a little bigger if need be. Here is my black one... (notice the driver in the first image?)
  11. 1978 280Z

  12. I bought this 77 280z from a post on here from a guy in Florida. I found a good deal on eBay for a set of Cosmo Racing coilovers and after my research decided to give them a try. I couldn't really find anyone who had a Datsun who had used them, just a bunch of questions about them and some 'bashing' that they were too inexpensive to be good. I did find several good reviews from folks who had put them on different makes and models, so I purchased them and installed them on my 77 280Z. I got the single spring setup with a heavier duty springs due to a V8 swap. I haven't been able to try them yet as there is no transmission and I'll be pulling the motor out this weekend. As soon as I know how they ride I'll update my experience here. Here are some other pics of the car.... you may remember this car being in the For Sale forum, but the pictures of it were terrible. Hard to tell what was being offered. I've cleaned it up and put a coat of 'undercoating' on the inside. It's got a new paint job from P.O. who was learning to paint. It's decent, but sat for a while in a body shop, then a garage and has some minor scuffs here and there. I'm looking forward to a good buff and wax job as I think it will remove a lot of the blemishes. I found a set of Weld Draglites (15x7 front & 15x8 rear) on craigslist I had to grab. They are 4.5 back spacing with new tires on front and practically new M/T drag radials on back. What do you guys think?

  14. I picked up a roller 1977 280Z partially assembled. One of the things I'm missing are the Front Caliper Bolts. Anyone know what size they are? I'd like to go grab some nice ones from the Hardware Store. Tory
