  1. Turbo Manifold Designs

    Nope, that's basically it. However, as long as the wastegate can flow enough to perform it's function of controlling boost pressure, then how it is mounted doesn't really matter. Also, you could make up for a sub-optimal mounting position by upping your wastegate size.
  2. Gas Monkey 280z at SEMA

    Vibrant uploaded this to their Youtube page today. I hate Richard Rawlings, but I have to admit that I love this car. The only thing I am undecided on is whether I would prefer a rear bumper on the car or not.
  3. 280z 5 speed Speedo gear housing

    Rotating it would seem to make sense if you can determine the proper spacing and alter the mount tab. Alternatively you could attempt to find the proper sleeve according to this link http://czot.org/forum/showthread.php?1760-Speed-Pinion-Gear-and-Housing-Combinations-(-70-78-240-260-280Z) ( Sleeve Assembly (16 tooth-19 tooth)PN 32707-78000 ) http://nissan.dealerdirectparts.com/Nissan-Part-number-32707-78000-p/32707-78000.htm
  4. I cut out the spare tire well in my car and put a removable cover. I did this to facilitate the installation of a new universal gas tank. It is going to take some fabrication to finish what the previous owner started. Post up some pictures of your current situation and what you desired outcome / usage will be and then people can make recommendations.
  5. Unless I am mistaken, the mustache bar is spring steel and if welded will harden and be susceptible to cracking at the edge of any welds. I would think you would be better off making one out of mild steel flat bar than welding to the stock one. It might be more prone to bending (however, with a solid front mount I don't think this would be a concern) but you shouldn't have to worry about it cracking.
  6. Rear Bumper Patch?

    Thanks, that is really good to know. I had considered getting it to repair my valance because I have a replacement from a donor, but with all the spot weld holes drilled, it is going to require quite a bit of work. I can patch holes though, shaping flat sheet metal, not so much.
  7. Rear Bumper Patch?

    Ask a bodyshop
  8. Rear Bumper Patch?

    That's the lower rear valance. Outside of cutting a replacement from a donor car, the only replacement I know of is from Zedd Findings http://www.datsunzparts.com/products.html
  9. Bought wrong size muffler

    If it is a cheap brand, there may be no difference. Engine Masters on Motor Trend tested a bunch of mufflers and found that the cheap 3" mufflers were actually a 2.5" core with 3" inlets and outlets and the cheap 2.5" mufflers were still a 2.5" core.
  10. 240z / 280z Parts for sale

    Lights have nothing broken, studs are all fully intact. Wiring is in good shape. The only real negative is that the chrome, much like most plastic chrome items this old, is peeling.
  11. Replacing dash with dash cover

    Oh see, on the 240z the logo is ON the glovebox. On the 280z's it is NEAR the glovebox, so the dash caps you have a hole so the logo shows through, but you can imagine how well the hole lines up.
  12. This is headed a little off-topic but here is a podcast where Shane Tecklenburg answers a question about wheel slip. He says pretty much any tire is going get the best acceleration at around 8%-14% wheel slip and more like 20%-40% for a slick. Counter intuitive but it's reality.
  13. WTB 240z Windshield Trim

    I think I have a set of the finishing pieces (2 corners and a straight piece), I'll check when I get home tonight.

    Sorry, I missed your post. I'll get some pictures this evening when I get home.
  15. Replacing dash with dash cover

    I wish they didn't even have the hole for the logo near the glovebox. 240z's didn't have that logo, did they?
