    removing exhaust liners?

    Hello, Just thought I would add to this thread even tho it hasn't been active in a long time, but I know that a few people still stumble onto it every now and then. So most of the people building turbo ZX's have managed to find the actual turbo head or complete L28eT, but like me some others aren't so fortunate or wealthy to come across one. With that being said, I think I may have found a fairly simple way to remove these pesky exhaust liners that requires minimal curse words. I wanted to remove my liners and had just seen my friend remove his exhaust silencer out of his rotary and ya know what it looked like an identical process for removing the liners so I stole some of the rotary knowledge. What you have to do: Get a die grinder (got an electric one from Harbor Freight $50ish) and some carbide bits (a couple of different shape or a cheap kit on ebay will suffice). Cut as far in as you can with the bits to section off the liners into small pieces and pull them out. If you place your cuts in the right area they are fairly easy to take out of the head. However, if you take them out you must port the head as the casting behind the liners is rather rough and not good for flow. I will link a short video I made on performing such process below. Also, if you wish to just beat them out expect roughly 40+ hours to remove them (tried one liner this way took five hours before I went searching for a new method), but if you do the method I performed then you can expect it to take you roughly three hours in total (no time at all when compared to porting and polishing an entire cylinder head).

    PALLNET FUEL RAILS

    Contacted him via facebook and he responded almost immediately. Would recommend this route if you still can't reach him. Brad

    Sanch, would it be possible for you to let me know if you are able to reach him. I have been trying to reach for the past couple days with no success either. I have tried the typical ways to reach him, but haven't been successful. Brad

    Tie Rod Help Needed!!!

    I pulled my inner tie rods of the zx today and went to a local store. The guy measured the bolt that goes into the power steering rack and said its a M16x1, so if anyone knows the inner tie rod bolt size for the steering rack side for a 240sx S13/S14 that would help a lot, or any other tie rod that might work.

    Tie Rod Help Needed!!!

    Hello, I have a 1983 280zx that is going to be running a custom front suspension setup with 1996 240sx s14 steering knuckles, s14 coilovers, 350z brake rotors, 300zx aluminum brake calipers. However, the question I have and can't seem to truly find a solid answer to is will 240sx inner tie rods bolt up to the 280zx steering rack (I know that s13 and s14 tie rods are different). Also, the reason for needing different tie rods is due to the stock ones coming no where near close to reaching the steering knuckle. Ideally I would like to run a set of s14 aftermarket tie rods, inner and outer, or some combo that will result in me having the ability to run heim joints for more steering angle. What I have found has me to believe that both 280zx's and an s14's (240sx) run tie rods that are M14x1.5. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Hey, so I know this is an old thread, just thought I would offer a suggestion for anyone who isn't quite as good at fab work. I am working with a local company called Fortune Auto, one of the coilover experts made a suggestion that using a 240sx s14 rear coilover with the top hat switched over to the stock 280zx one will give the desired adjust-ability. I am going to be posting my conversion once it is complete, however, he did test to see if it would work and everything seemed to line up as it should. My apologies on the post before. Quote
