  1. Turbo 5.3 Dyno

    You can start about page 3 of the build thread. I have almost 1K pictures of this thing, so please forgive me for not wanting to sift through them all. http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/115374-280z-53-turbo-build/page-3 You can check out my photobucket if you like. They are all on there as well. http://s592.photobucket.com/user/steepss/library/SidwayZ?sort=3&page=1
  2. Turbo 5.3 Dyno

    Here is the 1320 Video from the above mentioned no prep race. Skip to 1:45 to see my junk.
  3. Best/Easiest T56 Tranny

    Get a 2.66 1st gear unit. These cars are light enough you don't need the extra motivation to get them going. F Body trans is good in stock form, can hold good power (700+) with a few drop in parts T56 Magnum is great, with larger holding capacity. As Keith stated, stay away from the CTSV unit as they have a CV output rather than a slip yoke, making the connection a bit more difficult.
  4. Turbo 5.3 Dyno

    Entered the stick class at the local no prep last night and made some good rips. Here's the fast pass of the night. I ran a 6.47, 6.30, 6.35, 6.36, and spun hard to a 6.60 and lost the final to a good friend who killed it in his 5.0 coyote YSI Mercury Capri at a [email protected] And a picture of me on the 2 step. She is VIOLENT. Video VVVVV
  5. Turbo 5.3 Dyno

    Took the car to the track for the first time since...... shit, since drag week 2014 ... Pulled my trailer and gear over an hour there, and made three passes. Two of which are personal bests for the car! Launched out of boost, and ran out of gear a good 75' before the traps. I'm just happy I still remembered how LOL VIDEO VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVv http://vid592.photobucket.com/albums/tt4/steepss/SidwayZ/TRIM_20160716_081447_zpssxmsyjzz.mp4
  6. Turbo 5.3 Dyno

    Untouched 706's. We'll see - it looks like a cool event. I'm getting married the following weekend however, so it'll probably be my weekend to work. I'll just have to see when it gets closer
  7. Turbo 5.3 Dyno

    Not at this very moment. I just took a job in the Minneapolis, MN area so we're busy dealing with that.
  8. Turbo 5.3 Dyno

    I'll dig up some pics later. Turbo is a Turbonetics 7875 ball bearing with a .96 AR. housing (78mm compressor 75mm turbine) Hot side is 2.25" stepped to 2.5" at the merge. Exhaust is full length, 3.5" downpipe split to dual 3" before the rear axle, through Magnaflow Bullet mufflers. Sadly I don't have video, though I know there's probably 20 people who had their phones out lol.
  9. Cruised the car an hour the a dyno day a few weeks back. Long story short, I ended up getting peer pressured into putting it on the rollers. Mustang (heartbreaker) Dyno, SBE 2005 Iron block, China head studs, LS9 Gaskets, Tick Turbo Cam, BTR springs, LS1 intake T56, 8.8IRS E70 Pump, 20# Boost. Oh, and 24mpg on the highway! Anyway, here she is! (704 HP / 697 Torque for you out there not reading this on a big screen lol)
  10. S30 radiator options

    I have a Howe Racing radiator. Fully custom double pass cost me right around $300. I'll be buying from them for future projects.
  11. T56 magnum

    Only thing to it is to do it. Shifter is 2" rear of the F body t56 IIRC. Great trans.... they like boost
  12. So much room for turbo's

    Do it. I DARE you.
  13. 280z 5.3 Turbo Build

    The boost still works, so thats good. http://vid592.photobucket.com/albums/tt4/steepss/SidwayZ/VID_20150808_194227982_zpseztxhqfy.mp4
  14. C6 Corvette Oil Pan

    The baffling and ground clearance of the F body pans are both inferior to the LS3 vette pan. If you upgrade the baffle in the F body pan with an improved racing, that pretty much cures it ($$$). It still hangs an inch lower however.
