  1. Cleaning up some wiring and brake lines before attempting first engine install. Does anyone know what the four wires by the battery tray are? 2 red with black stripes, and 2 black with yellow stripes. Pete
  2. Here are some pictures of the LS2, getting closer to install.
  3. The slight difference you can see in the cross member steering brackets is because the Hoke cross member in the picture is from a 280Z, and my old cross member is from my 1971 240Z.
  4. Tried to install the steering rack on the new Hoke cross member last night. But there was a problem with the new Energy suspension urethane mounts. I was sent 2 upper mounts for the passenger side, missing the lower passenger mount.
  5. The engine mounts fit the block perfect. I did swap the GTO oil pan with an oil pan from a corvette. The corvette oil pan has more clearance and is internally baffled for road racing.
  6. My Hoke performance LS/T56 kit arrived today. I ordered the kit for an LS2 GTO install (alternator located low on the driver side. I will be installing a 2006 LS2 and T56 transmission from a GTO, in my 1971 series 1 240Z. The kit looks like it is very high quality.
  7. My 1971 240Z has a build date of 8/70, maybe the series 1 240Z's came with different connectors. Just my thought.
  8. Yes I sent pictures to Futofab they said they do not know why my car is different (they work with there 1971 240Z). I guess I will order new connectors that match and re- wire. My old harness is rusted I do not want to re-use it. I was just wondering if I really have different connectors than other 1971 240Z's. Pete
  9. I just purchased a set of new JDM tail lights from Futofab, the harness connector is different from the OEM harness on my 1971 240Z. Does anyone know which is the correct harness connector, Futofab says is should plug in the OEM harness. You can see from the picture the connecters are totally different. Has anyone had this problem. Is there an adapter to go from the JDM style to the 240Z style connector? Is my car different from all the other 240Z's. The picture on the right is the JDM connector. Pete
  10. Just finished installing my Bad dog frame rails. Ran the rear exhaust.
  11. I received my LS2 and T56 power plant. Now starts the engine work. Anyone that has done the LS2 swap and not used the power steering pump. How did you run the accessory belt?
  12. I was wondering what the wedges were for. I did not see them as part of the kit. Now I understand. Pete
  13. Thanks for the picture, can you tell me how far below the frame rails the 2.5" exhaust pipe is were it goes through the Hoke transmission mount. Pete
  14. Does anyone know if the Sanderson 1 5/8" headers on the JTR web site will work with either the Hoke or CRX kit? I have to say that Austin from Hoke has been very helpful answering email questions. To me the customer service may be worth the extra cost. I have never received an email back from CRX. They may just be to busy to answer email questions. I know these headers would not flow as well as long tube headers but I would be able to custom build the exhaust from the header back with 2.5" pipe and make sure I have the most ground clearance possible. I went to pick up my LS2 and T56 at the freight company yesterday and it looks like they dropped something heavy on the top of the engine. Waiting for the insurance company to write me a check before I accept the engine.
