  1. Picking out a clutch

    I've been told that the t5WC will handle 400hp fine as long as I don't drag race the car with slicks (which I won't be doing). They said that as long as the tires can break free and spin under load that it shouldn't be a problem. I also won't be going above 400hp, I just want the clutch to be a little above the max hp of the motor. As far ass the rear end goes, I will be replacing it with an r200. Thoughts?

  3. Picking out a clutch

    Yeah thats what I was thinking. As for the master cylinder, it actually doesn't have one. I'm also converting the car from auto to manual, getting tired of the th350. Any master cylinder suggestions for use with a 400 - 500 hp clutch with t5 trans?

    Thank you!
  5. Hi guys, I'm at the stage where I'm trying to pick out a clutch for my SBC 350 Z. Although the problems that I don't know how much power I'm making. How can I pick out a clutch that won't fail and not go way overboard on a high horsepower clutch? My current build is .030 over pistons, ported and polished heads, edelbrock performer intake, edelbrock 600 cfm carb, edelbrock performer cam, full headers, and 11 degrees timing. Thanks!
  6. SBC tuning question

    Thanks guys!
  7. Hi guys, I'm trying to give my sbc 10 - 12 degrees of initial timing. However when I do this, I can't bring the idle back down to 950, its stuck around 1500 rpm. I took a closer look at the carb (edelbrock 600 cfm) and it looks like the idle speed screw is completely disengaged from the throttle assembly. Has anyone else had this problem? FYI: choke is fully off and I can't pull the assemble closer to the speed screw. it feels like it won't go any further. Attached below is a picture of my problem. Thanks!
  8. Lets see your V8 in your Z.

    Needs a little TLC on the hood, paint, and interior, but here's my v8 Z
  9. 2JZ engine build question

    Holy moly! Thanks so much for all the 2J knowledge/wisdom guys, I didn't expect so many replies! Not time to hunt down a 2J
  10. 2JZ engine build question

    So the GTE is going to be cheaper? I'd like to know how dexter did his swap if it was budget.
  11. 2JZ engine build question

    I think I'm going to try and put the GTE head on the GE. I might to turbo, but at this point in time I'm not looking for insane hp numbers. Maybe 400 - 600 max. What would that take for this engine?
  12. 2JZ engine build question

    Hello, I am seriously considering a 2JZ swap for my already Chevy 350 swapped 1973 240z. I have a question though, The 2JZGE and 2JZGTE are wildly different in price and I was wondering if I could purchase a 2JZGE because they're a lot cheaper and build it over time to the spec of the 2JZGTE. From the research i have done, the blocks are essentially the same and since I would be rebuilding the GTE anyway if I bought that one, this seems like it might be better. Any thought? (Sorry if this has already been posted I didn't know what to search for when looking for this specific question)
  13. Hello! I am new to these forums and I have a 1973 240z, with a 350 Chev V8. The 350 is out of a 1970-71 Chevelle, and from what I understand, they weighed about 575 lbs. and made about 270hp when new. The 350 was recently rebuilt and has 0.030 over pistons, new piston rings, new bearings (crank, pushrod, and cam), Edelbrock performer cam and lifters, Edlebrock performer intake manifold, an Edelbrock 600cfm carb, and headers with full 3 inch exhaust. The reason I ask is because this is my first real project and I don't really have the cash right now to have it dyno tuned. Any expertise or experience would be greatly appreciated!
