  1. Ford 8.8 IRS swap v2.0

    You are living an exciting, busy life indeed. Thanks for the update and hope the new measurements work out. I am/will be your biggest fan and supporter of getting this to a point where many of us can purchase one of your kits. Looking forward to more updates in the near future.
  2. Ford 8.8 IRS swap v2.0

    Once again just checking in to see if there is any forward motion with this.
  3. Sound Deadening Material For Floor

    I'm glad to hear of your positive first hand experiences with the lizard skin products as I have both sound deaden-er and heat suppression waiting to be applied when that time comes in the build.
  4. I am revisiting this with a new lowered price of $2200 for the whole package.
  5. 60mm throttle body

    I have a new, unused Weber 60mm that I purchased awhile ago from a member here and put into my parts collection and never used. Here is the original ad from the previous owner and some pics of it. PM if interested... http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/112766-weber-throttle-body/?hl=%2Bweber+%2B60mm+%2Bthrottle+%2Bbody
  6. Ford 8.8 IRS swap v2.0

    Just looking for some current info or status on this
  7. HybridZ may be shutting down.

    Glad to hear this Dan. Keep the donations coming in people, we want this site to stay indefinitely.
  8. HybridZ may be shutting down.

    No this can not happen as HybridZ is the first thing I look at in the morning, several times throughout the day and the last thing I end my night with. It is my educational Z college, my place to see things that make me say wow with inspiration and a place for me to stay motivated through seeing others builds. I will donate $100 and dig through whatever leftover L28 parts I have to sell and donate the money back into this fine site. $100 on it's way...
  9. Ford 8.8 IRS swap v2.0

    Yes, Progress!!! I always love to see forward movement with this thread. I see a Morris Mini lurking in the background.
  10. Reconsidering my L28ET build

    Shanks, if you stick with the L28et route I would highly recommend adding a quality harmonic damper such as from BHJ to your list as there is no mention of one. It will add to your cost factor, but preventative parts as such are invaluable in the end. With that being said regardless of which engine path you take to achieve your power goals, I would strongly heed the words of advice from those with said engines that know of each one of their failure points and plan to build whatever engine with aftermarket parts that eliminate the weak points. If were talking 2JZ here, it is no secret they are very stout from the factory, but have weak points as well. Virtually every performance parts house offers preventative upgrades such as ported oil pumps, modified/welded timing gears, harmonic dampers to name a few. It all comes down to which school of thought you subscribe to. (1) Either simply buying a low mileage JZ and installing and disregarding mentioned weak points (for a few $ sake I suppose??) and rolling the dice. (2) The other method would have you taking advantage of having the engine out and ready for all parts mentioned plus new gaskets, timing belt, oil/water pumps, ARP main/head studs rod bolts etc... It certainly can become a deeeeep financial wabbit hole quickly, but it sounds like you want an engine you can beat on and have piece of mind that it is going to take it and not crap out at the absolute worst possible time. I am all to familiar with this second route as I am only a few components away from completely building my 2JZ with forged innards and my power goals are in the 500 + wheel range set up with E85 with future room to grow if ever deemed necessary. I am still mulling over Titan Motorsports billet main caps (requiring a line bore) and Supertech shimless buckets. Some would say over kill, but I personally want to pound on my engine and have rev capability while autocrossing and most importantly have the engine built to live with this harmoniously and not stressing to do so. I want to build it once with out taking short cuts and be done with piece of mind. I have already gone down the multiple bolt on performance parts route with a 4G63 engine to only have the crank walk at the most inopportune time while I was a full time student and a part time job trying to make ends meet. Lessons learned from that for any future performance goals from then on were to build it or even over build it for longevity, piece of mind and lastly enjoyment. I would also strongly suggest fortifying your car as best as you can in preparation for that power and torque. As far as that video linked above goes, I can't stand his incessant jump cut choices that he used for his final video edit. I am watching his videos to see what he destroys on his car next though.
  11. L28 - 350Z 6 Speed Transmission Adapters

    The 350z trans is one heavy unit. Just picking up my R154 and then a brand new 350z unit there was a big difference and the R154 is no light weight.
  12. My 240z 2JZ-GTE swap

    Must See Videos!!!!
  13. 78 280Z LS3 Project

    Very nicely done sir! Do you know how many gallons that cell will hold?
  14. 240Z body kit from Japan

    I was just checking this out in Nostalgic Speed. The fronts are 235/45R/15 and the rears are 305/45R/15's.
  15. S30 Drift car

    I just stumbled onto this video. Not your average choice for a drift platform. Looks to be doing a damn good job at it though
