  1. Thanks for the advices, im still looking at different options.... I must take track pads availlability in consideration too.... No problems with wilwood calipers in that department but for the toyota calipers choice is pretty limited....
  2. Dont get me wrong, i dont change my rotors that often, not even once a year with some track use. But when i have to, its nice to have some replacements availlable locally, epecially during a driving event that you have paid for... Its sucks to have to end your day or weekend because of warped/cracked rotors...
  3. Silvermine wilwood kits use modified sentra rotors if im not mistaken. Not something you can buy at your local auto parts.... Track season is short over here so i want to limit downtime as much as possible....i guess i just have to keep spare rotors in my garage.... And i dont like those fancy drilled rotors....blank rotors works best for me....arizona z car seems to have a great setup.....
  4. Yess i saw this thread and many others... It would be 20-25 min sessions on a pretty fast track with a couple of hard braking zones.....with the v8 i highly doubt the stock setup would be adequate....i think rear disks would be mandatory too.... With my e36 track car i just buy cheap plain chineese rotors from the local auto parts store and throw them in garbage when they are done....its cheap and i can get rotors easily as needed....
  5. Hi, i am currently building my 280z V8 LS dual duty car and i would like to see what other track junkies use for brake setups. I know most of the kits availlable, but my concern is that most of them use proprietary rotors or oem rotors that must be modified. Is there any good setup that would use on the shelf rotors? I know the toyota pickup vented setup do but i am wondering if it can really handle track duties.... Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    No dyno required as the ecu is self tuning. Based mainly on wideband sensor data......may not be 100% optimal like a real dyno tune but it can run really good let me tell you.....

    No no forget the 2k budget i decided to put some more money in it....4-5k should make it....

    I already started yess.... I would have to have someone finetune the ms3 for me and probably a dyno run so those costs adds to ms3 as well....ez-efi is nice for this you start the engine and go.....as stated before i already have one on my race car and i was impressed with that thing.... https://1drv.ms/v/s!AjU5VB8wXXw3lBnqqy2VusfxaXvp

    Im still not ruling out the 4 bbl intake, considering i would have to buy a pallnet fuel rail, injectors, probably 60mm throttle body + z car depot ez efi kit....i could just buy the arizona z car 4 bbl intake and ez-efi throttle body kit and be done with it....cost would probably be similar...it probably flows a bit better as well....cleans up the engine bay....i dont know...

    Do you have any porting done on the stock intake?
  11. L28 dual duty build

    My plan was to use the z car depot ez-efi self tuning kit that they developped for the stock intake....but if the stock intake is a real problem, i may just put a 4 barell intake and ran an ez-efi electronic throttle body instead....i dont have patience to mess with carbs anymore....

    Hey thanks for all the advice! Yeah I changed my budget for the engine work! But budget is growing real fast for not much hp from my calculations.... Injectors question is answered, i will go for bigger ones.... Now you have me wondering again about that restrictive stock efi intake......

    Thread revival Im about to start my engine work, i now have to choose a camshaft kit for my planned setup : 77' L28 with flat top pistons N47 head will be sent for port and polish to match my cam Aftermaket EFI will be used Stock intake manifold. Headers and exhaust will be installed. Will be doing mainly street and occasional track days with this car. Im likely to buy one of the schneider cam kits from zstore : http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic12e03/10-2000 So i have 2 questions : 1- Knowing that i will be using the stock L28 intake manifold, am i wasting money by going with a "big" cam like the 10-2005? 2- Stock injectors should be good for 200-250 hp from my understanding so no need to upgrade them right? Thanks in advance for your help!

    Ho youre so right..... Great infos right there.. Sorry! But i am still wondering if there is any benefits performance wise over a megasquirt setup....

    UPDATE : since the begining of this build i am looking for a self tuning EFI option that would fit on my L28 and didnt found anything.... I have the FAST EZ-EFi 2.0 on my V8 LS track car and this thing is awesome. So i looked at FAST, Holley and FITECH offerings and found that their EFI throttle body kits would fit the L28 with the addition of an 4 barrel intake. I already talked to a tech at comp cams(fast) and he told me that it should work without a problem. I have to say that my experience is very good with the kit i have on my track car, i installed the kit, entered the base parameters, afr targets and the car was running at first start. Im tracking it for the 3rd season now without a single problem.... I highly doubt anyone got any experience with this on a L28 but ill ask anyway. Heres the kits in questions : http://fitechefi.com/products/30003/ http://www.fuelairspark.com/fas/ez-efir-self-tuning-fuel-injection-system-base-kithtml/ https://www.holley.com/products/fuel_systems/fuel_injection/sniper_efi/sniper_4bbl_tbi_kits/parts/550-511 Is using a 4 barrel intake and efi should give some benefits over the oem datsun intake and megasquirt?
