    Condition of the front crossmember?
  2. RB26 Front Sump Setup with Custom Crossmember

    More than likely the TC arms will get in the way. I was planning on running a Tomei baffle kit. Just wanted to throw this out there before spending the money on a custom pan. A family friend use to build race cars for RMR, if he has the chance, I'll ask him to take a look at it and see what he thinks. I'm currently doing rust repair, so I'm about a month away from dropping in the motor.
  3. RB26 Front Sump Setup with Custom Crossmember

    Correction, it was DREW RBZ, not zt-r. I just got the idea because I can weld and have access to the materials. Plus, I was just trying to keep it money friendly as possible. I never saw his finished result, so I don't know his structure. I was planning on creating a rectangle design since the R32s crossmember is shaped that way. I haven't dished out a custom rear pan set up, just seeing if I can save $400+. I have read that CX racing oil pans require some finishing touches to bolt up and the baffle will need some improvements. I personally prefer not going with CX racing.
  4. RB26 Front Sump Setup with Custom Crossmember

    I had the idea of moving the steering rack forward but like you stated, that would require me in going into deepwater. I've also thought about notching the pan but it would end up losing oil capacity. I did notice that blu808 managed to trim the crossmember enough to fit the front sump pan and managed to keep the steering rack mounts. He said they made a jig from that trimmed crossmember and made one that managed to add support. He never mentioned modifying the steering rack position. You can modify the oil pan to make it into a rear set up (like zt-r did) but that would require a lot of chopping and aluminum welding. I find it easier to make a crossmember since I don't have much experience with aluminum.
  5. I'm a person that likes searching for my information, rather than starting threads that ask about things that have been done. As the title states, I'm trying to keep my stock front sump on my Rb26. Many of you will say to go with a custom Rb25 sump or ask pat1 to make me one. I was going to do that but 1) I'm a person that likes to keep the budget low as possible & 2) the Rb26 sump has some advantages. I came across a build thread from 2008 that supported my idea, http://zilvia.net/f/showthread.php?t=218870 The build could be found here on HybridZ but over at Zilvia he states the Pros of having the front sump. Now my main question, does anyone have a picture of his custom crossmember set up? OR a picture of it being done on another Z that I haven't came across? I've searched far and wide, although my father and I can fabricate one on our own, I would like an example to go off of. Thanks fellow members
  6. WTB: Atara Racing Pisang OR RS Watanabe

    Bump Now accepting Watanabe RS. Wheels must be in good condition.
  7. WTB: Atara Racing Pisang OR RS Watanabe

    Wheels are for a family member, don't think he wants to drop so much for wheels but ill let him know. Thanks
  8. JPN Garage Issues? Not answering emails and messenger

    I always see him active on Instagram. I'm sure you can get his attention on a comment if he doesn't end up replying to your personal messages.
  9. As the topic states, looking for some Atara Pisang wheels. Mainly looking for 15x10 but MAY consider 15x9.5 as a last resort. As for the Wats, 16x9.5 -19 would be ideal. Located in SoCal and would prefer if they were local. If you have something, please let me know Thanks
  10. As the title says. Looking for a manual transmission for a Rb25 series 2. Looking for one locally. Around the Orange County, CA area. Willing to drive 100 miles. At the right reasonable price.
  11. CX Racing suspension parts....

    $368 for both! That is a steal, but how is the quality compared to T3 and Silvermine? Someone needs to try them out.

    Really digging the seats. I'm actually in the process of doing my engine bay similar to yours. I have been thinking of coating mine with this http://www.eastwood.com/ew-textured-rust-encapsulator-black-aerosol-15oz.html?reltype=2&parent_id=26929 How rough is the texture of the bed liner?
  13. 73Fairlady's 240z Build *heavy pics*

    Love the build, how is the quality of those seats? $699 for both seats right?
  14. S30 and some S130 parts some rare

    Can I get some pics of the black 240z door panels?
  15. 240z Toyota Brakes

    I swear that I came across that information a few months ago, and I want to say that you might have a problem? I couldn't find it and I wasn't going to go on a deep hunt for it but the old handy dandy search bar helps a lot. I'm sure it's there, happy hunting!
