    2JZ/RB26 in 240/260 = Nose-Heavy?

    Nope, mine does not feel nose heavy at all, it handles brilliantly with zero ill effects compared to the L26. Running an RB26 and its mounted only about 1cm off the bulkhead, farther back than the L26 sat by a good bit.
  2. Thanks, looks like my sub frame connectors will have to be custom, it will help that my roll bar mounts are already lowered by 6mm as I had to mod them in order for the R33 GTS-T diff flange to fit. Good to Know
  3. I was wondering if the bad dog sub frame connectors let you still run the rear anti roll bar or if the connectors will stop the bar from fitting in the original mounting position?

    78 280Z LS3 Project

    Love the tucked chassis harness, I am thinking of going this way also. Just curious how you routed yours past/round the headlight bucket area?
  5. So they might clear my 16's. Would be close though, current 310mm setup has some room left.

    My 240 rb26 build

    Not too bad, but would make mine too close to what my Honda is like on the motorway, I am also running 4.11 FD and I like only being at 3050rpm @70mph. That is good though because it means if I were to run one the same as yours all I would need to do is switch to a 3.5 final drive. I'd love to see some more videos of the box in action.

    My 240 rb26 build

    That gearbox is bloody awesome. Always wanted to add a PPG Sequential to mine. I looked at HGT boxes but they all seemed to have ratios to short for motorway driving and made a lot of noise? How are you finding these. Entire car is awesome by the way.
  8. Looks like superb work so far. Love the brakes, I fancy an upgrade to AP racing sometime. What size are those discs?
  9. I hope you get it sorted how you want it and it turns out to be everything you wanted it to be. A top spec traction control setup seems like a good idea, no point in having loads of power if you can't use it. Look forward to hearing how you get on.
  10. Such a fantastic car and epically well done project. Does it drive as good as you hoped?

    Bigger Air Filter = Better?

    Interestingly NA's actually requite larger filters than force fed motors. I had a table listing what minimum size your filter needed to be for a given hp for both NA and turbo engines, I will post it if I can find it. If you can fit a filter with a v stack it makes a big difference.

    Thanks. Not as sick as I felt I'm sure. I was meant to be heading to the Biggest Jap car show in the UK the next day and I'd got a space on the Top 20 arena, so gutted I didn't make it, had the ferry and B&B's booked and a friend arranged to come other with me, properly gutting. Thanks, its nice to have your own place, and I'm super happy to now have somewhere my own to work on the cars inside, no more lying on wet ground in the rain for me.

    Then this happened. Someone old lady pulled out in front of me in a 60mph limit, I had no chance of stopping in time. Then she claimed it was my fault later on, I didn't want to loose my no claims and wanted the car repaired properly so I took her to court and Won of course, but it took over a year since the accident. Its not that bad but still is about £10,000 of damage, the airdam, bumper, bonnet, headlight bucket, headlight case, headlight, headlight cover, wing, indicator front, indicator side, grill, diffuser plate and two wheels where they touched the kerb are all damaged, as is part of the inner panel meaning the engine will have to be removed to straighten and repair. So, the car hasn't been on the road in over a year, between breaking my fibula and tibia wakeboarding to getting my first house and my Job commitments I just haven't had time. In good news however I bought my first house, and it has the all important triple garage, so I now have somewhere to store and work on my cars. That was the main reason for going with this house tbh, petrol head prioritys. The garage isn't much inside at the moment, but I have big plans for it, once the Datsun is sorted again it will be my next project before I can start another car project. Plan to extend the two right side bays longer to allow room for cabinets and benches with room to work on a car all round while it is on a scissor lift which will be recessed into the floor. Walls will be painted, floor will be tiled, insulation added to the roof, the two left bays will get a loft for storage and I'll fit flat led lighting panels recessed into the ceiling throughout. Got most of the parts needed to fix the Datsun now, I decided I would try and cut some weight So I got Marugen Shoukai FRP wings, amazing quality and only weigh 2.15kg each. I wanted a carbon fibre Bonnet, but nearly all available are actually fibreglass with a cosmetic skin of carbon. I wanted full dry carbon. Only two options I could see were Topstage Composites and Restored.JP. I went for the restored one, it weighs 5.7kg. Inside will stay carbon, topside will be body colour. Skillard full length grill I decided recently that I would go all out, so the whole car is going back to bare metal, only rust is a few spots in the floor plans, this will be repaired along with some more seam welding in the rear, some minor mods in the engine bay and I will be extending the frame rails to join the rear sub-frame. Currently trying to decide if I want to add a half cage or not. Stripping in progress. The sound deadening was a pain to remove, even with dry ice. I plan to re make the interior wiring while building her up again. Work should be commencing when I am on leave in July. So can't wait to drive her again. My sump needs better baffling and the flange isn't flat so I plan to either start from scratch or cut off the flange and re make the current one with a new flange, wings and an improved trap door setup. This will be done while the engine is out the car for the body work. Got some RB26 flanges ready to go.
