    JDM CALIFORNIA MOTORS anyone?

    I bought a 2JZ from JDM Engine Pro in La Habra and it was in great shape. Upon request they removed the unwanted automatic trans and had the engine ready for me to help load into my truck. I think it was Chris that I dealt with there.

    Z car garage brakes

    I bought the standard AZC Wilwood kit from the silver Vildini shop car 240Z. They only have less than 4k miles on them. I also bought member Woza custom rear parking brake brackets and also have member Tim O version. Unfortunately my car is in pieces waiting for one day to be finished. I have heard nothing but positive comments on the azc kit though.

    2.5" vs. 3" comparison

    I can't tell you how many times I have watched your Youtube videos and had a smile from ear to ear with the sound of your car ZRedBaron.... Amazing!!!

    Fender flares

    I have a set of unused rear smooth style ZG flares that I bought from (MSA) Motor Sport Auto and never ended up using them or plan on using them as I went a completely different route altogether. These are ultimately intended for bonding onto the stock rear quarter panels, but I imagine could be adhered instead for a type of temporary hold. The pictures included showing them taped on my car are actually resting on an existing wide body rear quarter panel from Ztrix.com, ( "Subtle Z" ) which are 1.5" width over stock.

    Ceramic Coating

    You may want to reach out to Austin of Hoke Performance as if I recall had coated many parts of his L28et before he had the damage occur with that engine and finally went VQ instead. Not implying that the coating had anything to do with it, but as I recall that was how that all unfolded in sequence.

    Fuel Tank - 1973 240z

    I have my stock '73 tank out and it has been hot tanked a long while ago as I was going to do custom work cutting and welding on it. It sat foir a long while in storage and had a light layer of rust in it until I bought a bunch of Evaporust and the largest Rubbermade storage container that it would fit in. I plugged all the lines and holes and continuously turned and let it sit for over two weeks, (lot of re-taping effort spent on getting all sides). I got the inside of the tank to shine like new, but instead of coating it with any oil substance I let it dry and was supposed to sell it locally , but the guy flaked out. It now has the thinnest layer of flash rust in it, but another soak of the Evaporust will take it right back off. I stripped the paint off down to bare metal then primered, then painted an amateur job with quality rattle cans. I also have a new fuel filler neck and sending unit from MSA that I am not using as I will be installing a fuel cell.

    Three question-points about 13b-powered S30s

    Pandem/Rocket Bunny Kit

    I think both kit options offer a simple bolt on option with dzus fasteners or traditional bolts. For me I am trying my hardest to make it as visually smooth and slippery a surface as I can by removing door handles, locks, C pillar vent hole and logo trim and blending the front head light buckets with the fenders and lastly the rear three piece spoiler into the rear quarter panel. The only exception of trimming and removing would be retaining the rain gutters for potentially utilizing surf board racks in-case my intended fuel cell and door cover take up too much of the rear cargo area. I want it to look as if it could have come from the factory very streamlined that way. Neither option is cheap and both will require some finessing but both will allow for wider wheels, grip and some individuality of your car. Good luck either way and let us know what option you end up choosing.

    Three question-points about 13b-powered S30s

    You could make good power with a 13B turbo in a light weight and small foot print. Some negatives to me would be fuel consumption as opposed to other engine options that would be of the same hp range and lack of torque down low. It would come down to the desired power band.

    Pandem/Rocket Bunny Kit

    I have the front wedge shaped bumper in fiberglass from the Pandem kit that I ordered through Greddy.com. It was not the greatest constructed piece, but I contacted Greddy who also sent my supplied pics to Pandem who made good with a whole new one shipped for free. I was not expecting that nor did I push for that extreme result. The new one was of better build quality, but a little thin on the under side V/wedge area. I have to customize it to fit the rest of another front end wide body kit from Ztrix. I also have a full "Subtle Z" kit from Ztrix.com that increases width 1.5" over stock. Since having the kit blended on to the rear quarter panels, I decided to go wider rear and ordered the "YZ" quarter panels that offer 3" over stock width and allow a 12" wide rim to fit. There was some small fitment work required to get the Subtle Z kit to fit as to be expected with fiberglass and I suspect the new YZ rears will require some as well. John Washington of Ztrix is a stand up guy with very good communication and willingness to do right by you, I can't state that enough.... Here are some pics of my car project with the subtle Z kit, subtle front and rear YZ taped on for a quick visual and lastly the front bumper from the Rocket Bunny kit which will require work to fit my front. Hope some of that helps.....
  22. How about Image wheels that offer multiple width options? http://www.imagewheels.co.uk/

    the start of the B.customs Z has begun..2jz 1000hp

    Thank you for your input as I find your first hand experiences as tremendously invaluable info for my 2J build. I am in no way trying to build something with your power goals (550+ high boost on E-85) and am certain I will run the stock intake. It will also save a nice amount of money as most aftermarket intakes are not cheap. Now if I could just make up my mind as to go forged rods and pistons or cleaned up stock bottom end. I have everything else for the top end minus the intended port work. Thanks again....
