    But it adds + 5HP, I read it on the internet so it must be true!!!
  2. Nelsonian 240z

    Yes, every seam will be touched. Going to make it as strong as I can, minus full cage. Squeaks Be Damned!!!

    A few pics of the initial front end stitch weld progress from this past week. The Endura brand epoxy primer has been a real challenge to remove and prep for the stitch welding. I have been super stoked that it has lasted as long as it has since it was applied several years back, but it has slowed down the welding with pre prep. I am in the process of breaking down the diff to bring up to Anaheim and have it vapor blasted, but have been contemplating having it dry blasted then powder coated instead. Not quite sure which path to take just yet. More to come.
  4. What year 240sx trans

    Yes Sir that is it, well done. His write up helped me as I followed this with my S14 trans swap only to finish the machine work and sell the trans after buying a Z32 trans instead.
  5. What year 240sx trans

    Yes that's him, thank you for jogging my memory. Now if I could only remember the site he posted it to.
  6. What year 240sx trans

    There is a difference from an s13det and s14det coming off the Black top engine. The later s14 has dual cone synchros on (if memory serves me correctly) 2nd and reverse gears and I want to say they are slightly wider gears. There is a write up by a member here on another car forum, that for the life of me I can't remember the members screen name or the site he posted it on. It was very in depth with well documented photos and description. I want to say the member lives in Canada.
  7. engine bay upper body frame structure for a 240Z

    Any chance you could get pic looking up under view ? I am a bit worried that car may be a bit too rusty for that piece but will remain optimistic. I am still debating on cutting my pinched rail piece out and rebuilding it, but would like to see another angle or two if you don't mind, Thanks...

    It may just come down to that option but I am first reaching out to a few other car forums and Z related businesses to see if they have a possible donor car to cut from. Tho of Time Machine Race craft does have a rather nice spot welder waiting for use.
  9. engine bay upper body frame structure for a 240Z

    Yeah, it may come down to that if I can't find a donor car to cut the puzzle piece from. I just spoke with Tho (fabrication specialist), and a smaller piece as shown in the edited pics would suffice if we can't find the upper rail all the way to the tip. My detail obsession or ocd, call it what you may, makes life hard for me to do simple things or ways that most wouldn't think twice about. Much like the painted wall of Singer Automotive "Everything Is Important" tends to rule my thoughts.

    Ritrebor, Unfortunately I don't think that would work as it was cut just in the zone forward of the uprights where I need it the most. Thanks for offering and it is a damn shame as that would have been a convenient possibility.
  11. Exposed's 1jz Build

    I agree, those wheels look great! I would be interested in seeing the fitment in the trans tunnel with that CD009 as well as my car just got dropped off with my Fab guy to do other work. I'm sure the original mounting tabs in the trans tunnel had to be cut.
  12. I am on the hunt for a non rusty passenger side upper frame structure to replace my crumpled one that was the result of the previous owners rear end wreck.Hopefully someone in southern California or elsewhere willing to ship, has something they can cut to fit the need. Pics provided for a better explanation.

    Finally got the old project moving in gear and loaded up for a little 45 mile drive up to Tho Chung's garage at Time Machine Racecraft for more stitch and spot welding as well as some fabrication. I also got a chance to see his '74 Mazda RX4 that I love in that green color. Also snapped a few pics of the front upper engine bay structure that was crumpled in the previous owners wreck. I am on the hunt for a replacement piece if anyone has a clean non rusty/crusty piece on the passenger side.I am planning on having the new Ford 8.8 lsd vapor blasted to remove the years of oxidation and leave a clean even sheen. That's it for now....
  14. 8.8 IRS questions? Who is happy with what mount?

    I'm interested in seeing this progress, please share a few pics as it comes together.
  15. Nelsonian 240z

    I could only guess at this point as to how the final fitment will play out. I will be using a Ford 8.8 IRS diff, custom Driveshaft Shop axles for my rear set up. I called and spoke with John in regards to the possibility of making the rear quarters a half inch narrower. He seemed to think it could be done, but in the end I decided to just order standard size. I still like other wheel options out there, (Work VS KF, or VS XX, BBS RS GT, or SSR Professor SP1R) all in 2 or 3 piece and wide width's. The YZ rear quarters will accommodate up to a 12" rim and house 315's. Case in point would be Darius' 240Z here... http://www.superstreetonline.com/features/1412-1972-datsun-240z-chevrolet-small-block/
