    Z's, 510 wagons, old Mercedes, deuce and 1/2's . . . it never ends
  1. nrS30, Did you also end up with the mould for the headlight cover?
  2. Vote for HybridZ most useful humanitarian post of the year!
  3. MB V12 Bell housing for a T5

    Good work, a lot of excellent info here . I'm excited to see where you take this. The Merc V12 is a little used motor (in any car) you seem to be working out a lot of the kinks.
  4. tide75,any thoughts on weight differences after handling the removal and air strut install?
  5. P90 Head Porting realizations

    While we have this ancient thread bumped... The head cross sections are awesome to study and compare. I missed this one way back in '03. I would like to mention something to correct a misconception for anyone else reading this thread in the future. Maybe I'm being pedantic, but the O.P. completely neglected including (subtracting) the diameter of the valve stem from the valve seat throat. The effective diameter ends up being around 1.391" versus the 1.525" mentioned, assuming a 5/16" stem. So, it's not a huge mismatch between intake port and seat at all. Sixteen thousandths, not fifteen hundredths. That number is an over simplification, but a decent ballpark. Back to our regular scheduled programming...
  6. Anyone seen the ADV1 280Z?

    If you look a little further down the page, there are actual pics of the real car, it looks like flat black or grey. Not sure if this car is the blue Z revamped, or if that was just to show an example of a powerful Toyota L6 swap?
  7. EMPI HPMX Carburetors

    They're downdraft, aren't they?
  8. Air dam it!

    Any chance you could scan or take a better pic so that everything in the ad is legible? I put one of those on my green 73 that I got BNIB with a parts car.
  9. Looking on Fontana's website from one of the previous links, it appears to me that they are cnc'ing their own aluminum bock and copies of LS heads. Their listed data does no mentio bore spacing, but the deck height is in the ballpark to be a 4 cylinder LS3. I'm not in a position to do this now, but has anyone contacted them about the crank for their "new" midget engine? I have dreams of a dry sump ITB titanium rod flat crank LS7 dancing in my head.
  10. Aluminum dash project

    I really like your setup alot. I do wonder if you will have an issue in sunlight though.
  11. I bought a Nintendo Entertainment System

    Cool, Where did you get the board from and how much? I've been thinking about an Atom N450 hidden desktop myself.
  12. Thrust augmentor on a automotive exhaust

    John, It is not quite as simple as a merge collector. I think you're missing the "cool outside air" entering point in his drawing. I believe what Prox is describing is also known as an eductor nozzle/pump. It's used in shipboard dewatering among other things. The usage in that case is to pump a volume of water through that nozzle, drawing a suction on that secondary ring, which pumps/pulls fluid along with the original fluid pumped in. The same concept as used on newer diesel exhausts is a method of pulling in a high volume of cool ambient air to cool the tip and exhaust gas leaving the diesel particulate filter at potentially litigious temperatures. -That being said, I don't believe it will work in the manner hoped for. The problem is that your low pressure point is the opposite of where you want it. Unless you plan on running very rich and using a secondary ignition system... like John said
  13. I really like your linkage and "L-crank" setup, wish something that nice existed for sidedrafts (without spending TWM level of money, that is).
