  1. Best twinscroll manifold?

  2. You have me sold on this and when the time comes for that part of the build I will gladly get one. A nice move in the right direction to counter some of the heavy weight from a 2JZ swap.
  3. Djwarner, I am interested and will send a PM
  4. WTB: Weber or TWM Throttle Body

    I have a Weber 60mm throttle body that I will not be using. I bought this from a member here a long time ago and it has not been used, just stored in the parts collection.
  5. Top of Page button on site?

    Just wondering if I am this blind/stupid as to not see any top of page button to automatically return to the top. If this does not exist, could it be made to ?
  6. Blasting vs. sanding (rust repair)

    It would be a tough pill to swallow going back on what you have already achieved, however all metal would be rid of rust. I know all too well about one step forward and three steps back as I have made a few costly mistakes along the way on my build, er, um Z build education. I had my car immediately epoxy primered by Bob the blaster using Endura epoxy primer. The car was on his car port in Jamul with body repair started for roughly 4 months with only a blue tarp and bungee cords holding it on. I then moved the car to my body/paint guys garage in El Cajon for a long while then had to move it to a rental garage in Chula Vista close to the San Diego harbor/ocean where it has been for at least 2 years. I have not had any re-rust issues I am happy to say so far. I have had alot of sand come out of the hidden cracks however as the car has been flat bed or moved on a car hauler from south SD to North county SD no less than 4 times n the highway. Hopefully most has shaken itself loose by now. I had an older gentleman who has been blasting for most of his life do the work and still had minor signs of warping. My body guy was not that pleased with the work ahead of him to get all straightened. It would be a tough decision to make to dip then epoxy, undercoat seam seal, but without a doubt will have eliminated all internal rust without warping any panels in the process.
  7. Blasting vs. sanding (rust repair)

    If I had the chance to strip my car again and the circumstances were not what they were at the time, (immediate place needed to house the car after as well as find a body/paint guy), I would have brought my car to a dipper in LA or checked out these guys in Oregon. http://www.metaldipping.com/faq.php Read the Common Questions section and see how many myths that are spread by people.
  8. RIP Joel Soileau

    Just reading of this horrible news now. Such a helpful man, hate to see us lose another kind soul here. Rest In Peace....
  9. WTB Rear Disc Brake Brackets Maxima or Aftermarket

    This is set up for the Wilwood 4 piston caliper brake kits and spot parking brake calipers.
  10. WTB Rear Disc Brake Brackets Maxima or Aftermarket

    I actually found a pic or two of them that I took awhile ago.
  11. WTB Rear Disc Brake Brackets Maxima or Aftermarket

    I have a new, unused set of brackets that are back up to another version that I decided to use instead. I had them anodized red and never installed. I am finishing up a two week annual visit with my friends and family in North Carolina until the 18th however, which I then could get you some pics of.
  12. I chose the complete strip down and build up approach for my project and am glad that I did. I discovered how shotty the previous owners repair work was and found unexpected rusty panels in most all the known areas after the old under coating, BONDO etc was removed. I am a bit of an obsessive type and have approached this car with the plan to build it to my liking/standards/approval and never sell it. I wish I could have hauled it up to Los Angeles and had it dipped then epoxy primered, but going the route I went (professional sand blasting) allowed me to meet my current body/paint guy as well as start the body work on the blasters property. There was some signs of minor panel warpage on a few areas where as the dipping process would not have been an issue. All in all for my first old car as well as doing what I can so far to rebuilding it, I am happy that I went this method and exposed all problem areas and gave me a new canvas to strengthen for my intended 500ish whp goals. I will add that I rode in a friends L28et 280Z that at the time was only making mid 200ish hp and ended up cracking the new paint in the C pillars where the lead lines are. I had mine removed and welded solid as a result. I still plan on more stitch welding in the rear area as well as finishing the firewall to complete the front. I think you are forming the right plan to combat that amount of torque and power that you have planned. Just a few pics showing the passenger side requiring a new cut piece to properly line up as well as how thick the bondo was in some places. The first page of my build shows what I discovered under a pretty, new, blue paint job and the very beginning of the snowball rolling down the hill of no return.
  13. This is an airdam from the Subtle Z kit from www.ztrix.com. It flares out to match up with their flared front fenders so most likely not a match for stock bodied S30.
  14. WWW.Commonsnapper.com sells this front airdam.
  15. Top chop update

    Beautiful end results! I'm curious as to your personal opinions on the Vitaloni California door mirrors. Are they vibration free, or do you find them vibrating all throughout rev ranges?
