    Top End Performance - Chattsowirth, CA

    Check out Datsun Spirit as well. I bought a strut bar from Top End Performance, was ok but not great quality. I have heard they are not the best to deal with and expensive but I had no issues with them.

    Maybe replace the stock coil with a msd unit?

    I guess that this will not give you the accuracy of a trigger wheel. At higher RPM the dizzy is a bit inaccurate, at least so I heard. Never have any hands one experience with dizzy and high RPMs. Take a timing light when you run at 5000 RPM, it jumps all over the place. Not sure if that is the timing light being in accurate. But probably much better than just the dizzy. Do you plan on dyno tune it? Mine is a track car so it lives in high RPM and high heat, so good timing control is important. For a street car with less high RPM usage it might matterless. What RPMs do you see?

    I have never used Megajolt but have some of their other stuff (Racecapture pro) and I am happy. Support is pretty good and it seems to be high quality with expensive high quality components and designs. I found there software being a little behind their HW, it still works but you can tell Steve Jobs didn't design it. What CoP coils are these? edit: I find it annoying that there aren't any cheaper trigger wheel brackets. $200 bucks is a lot (I am sure it has to do with low volume, but still).

    VW wasted spark coils are cheaper than LS coils, works the same with being logic coils. Probably lees oomph but not sure if it matters on NA builds, still 100x better than Zx dissy. I assume your new engine will be carbs? To trigger coils you need: - triggerwheel on damper - some bracket with sensor - computer, megajolt or ms2 Not sure what coils megajolt works with, think its common with the ford EDIS

    Harmonic balancer fell off

    I thought the broke off ment that the runner broke off why do you need a new valancer then if it didnt break?

    Harmonic balancer fell off

    They are known to fail. Just age I guess. If you find a stock one you can have it rebuilt for $100 or so by damper doctor. Otherwise BHJ or ATI is your best bet, people have had issued with the MSA powerforce ones. But maybe that is fixed

    Budget build ZX

    Not sure, mine had. Send them an email, they helped me with questions. I ordered from speedwaymotors.com, I would email them as well to make sure you get the correct wheel. Can't remember if I had to pay shipping. Summit racing doesn't have shipping but they don't sell them I think,

    These are even dot approved, maybe a requirement for you. http://www.bassettwheel.com/dot.html $70 a wheel....

    Budget build ZX

    There are some pictures here, It's stretched but for racing application it's the recommended width on 10s. Unless you need maxwidth for max performance on a track a 8 or 9" wide tire would be plenty. I have had both 16x6" and 15x8" Miata wheels, both of them looked a little bit more "normal".

    Budget build ZX

    Check out basset racing wheels. That is what I have, 15x10. Cheap and surprisingly light. Do you know what backspacing you need?
