  1. Hello everyone! Im new to the Hybrid Z forums so I thought I would start a build thread for my build on my 1975 280z. Current car: 1975 Datsun 280z Mods: Subaru Power Steering conversion, Full Eibach suspension, aftermarket swaybar + full polyurethane bushing conversion, Toyota front disc conversion, aftermarket A/C installed, 240z driveline, (im probably missing some things so I'll update it as I go.) I have roughly 20 years of receipts of all the work done to the car. I just recently acquired the car so everything listed above was done by the previous owner. Now here is my plans for the rest of the car: [Key --> Green = Acquired Crossed Out = No longer using ] Rebuilt Turbo Spec Motor 7.31:1 Compression (N42 block/P90 Head) Either T3 Precision Turbo or T3 Turbonetics Arp Head Studs External Wastegate + Blowoff Valve + AFR + Boost Gauge Oil Cooler Turbo dizzy 82/83 280zx + shaft Megasquirt EFI kit from Softopz Green Giant Injectors / 440 cc Supra Injectors (For Sale, Message me if interested I will ship at no extra cost) Turbo Oil pump (thoughts?) 240sx throttle body + Sensor Intercooler + Piping Oil Pressure T for oil lines to turbo (in & dump) 2mm head gasket to lower compression to 7.8/1 wastegate Downpipe (need a dump tube as well for the wastegate) Turbo Manifold(x2 anybody want to purchase my extra?) + wastegate adapter 2.5" exhuast / black widow widowmaker Upgraded Ignition System (not sure which to go with yet, suggestions??) NGK Plugs Pallnet Fuel Rail Kit + Throttle Body Spacer Electric fuel pump upgrade + New Pressure Regulator ------------------------------------------------- UPDATES: Update 11/3/2017 - With some great info/advice from the comments, I am highly considering going with a megasquirt plug in play kit made by softopz (just waiting on his reply at the moment). I've also decided I definitely DO want a bigger cam, so any suggestions on that front are helpful as well. Also I have added that if I go the megasquirt route I am ordering a pallnet fuel rail to compliment it. Update 11/4/2017 - Alright after meticulous research, hours of comparing prices and talking back and forth to people who have done the cam/turbo builds and the potential power gain (and I do mean COUNTLESS hours of this haha), I have decided to completely ditch the whole cam and head upgrade idea and go the turbo build route. For almost the same price (actually a bit cheaper) I can get alot more smiles per gallon with the turbo build. There just isn't enough power to be had on the N/A build for the amount being spent. So as of right now this is the game plan. I will continue to add to this as I see fit, everything will be updated on this original thread post. Part 2 11/4/2017 Just went through the receipts on the car (dating back to the late 90's) and boy was I in for surprise! All of the tedious work to maintain the stock L28 has been completely gone through by the PO! For example the timing chain kit from Z Motorsport has been installed, Tune up kits routinely done, fuel pump and filters / lines replaced, harmonic balancer replaced, and the list goes on. I couldnt be more happy with this purchase!! Did I mention the PO gave me a close ratio 5-speed for the car?! This car amazes me and I am very thankful that it has had such meticulous care over the years. Update 11/7/17 Added some parts to the list. Also purchased a turbo manifold on facebook for 150 bucks! ***Update 11/10/17**** I have purchased a complete rebuilt L28 turbo motor setup at a very very good price! Here are the engine specs: L28 N42 Block with dished pistons, P90 Head, N47 intake, turbo manifold, Pallnet fuel rail + Fuel pressure gauge, 440cc supra injectors, rebuilt chinese housing turbo with turbonetics internals, turbo dizzy, and assembled with ARP studs. Came with some other misc parts as well. Update 11/13/17 Link to spreadsheet for parts list: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iOiWBJyjQH3KEkLnBor0snwgOvXaUo4I0qIo1ZDYFZo/edit?usp=sharing
  2. SOLD!! 1973 Datsun 240Z with 280ZX Turbo Swap/Transplant Pictures at http://www.pbase.com/egillis/240z Full engine (L28ET), transmission(Borg-Warner T-5), rear end(R200/CV Halfshafts), and brakes(full disc) are from 1983 280ZX Turbo. S30 Shell carries a SALVAGE title due to theft, but also carries a post-swap CARB Referee Swap Decal. The car is in fantastic condition, I often forget the salvage title, but I want to get that out of the way immediately for the uninterested or for those looking for something different. Since the car is registered as a 1973 this is unneeded in CA, but the builder of the car wanted it this way. To the trained eye, one can see that this car is crafted from several years of the Z. The rear hatch has the vents and vertical defroster lines of an early generation 240, the doors are from a 260, hood from a later version 280 with vents. The car was built in 1995 by a local farmer who has completed several tastefully executed swaps into older Dattos, including KA24's, and SR20's and refereed by the state Air Resources Board later that year. Engine/Trans/Diff/Struts/Brakes are all stock or NISMO parts, save few modifications. There is an intercooler installed; it is a modified FMIC from the Starion Turbo. There is a 'hardware store' style adjustable boost knob mounted in the engine bay, along with a VDO boost gauge mounted under the steering wheel. MSD 6AL ignition and coil, new TAYLOR 8mm wires. Jet-Hot Coated downpipe from MotorsportsAuto, along with new stainless steel exhaust system (flex joint installed, rear section removable/customize to new owner's liking). New master brake cylinder (aftermarket new) and power brake booster (aftermarket rebuilt). CV boots are in good shape, new clamps on one, new boot on other. Struts are in decent shape, the car sits on lowered Nismo 'blue' springs and has the same 'blue' front and rear anti-sway bars. Two sets of wheels are sold with the car, both with newer tires. 15 x 8 SportMax XXR 002's (red centered Minilite-repros) with Hankook RS-3 225/50-15 (autocross stickies) and 14 x 7 Konig Rewinds (silver Panasport-repros) with 215/60-14 Cooper Cobra GT all seasons. Interior is in incredible condition. Original white diamond print vinyl is still on tunnel and on other areas, under the carpet. Currently has black carped interior, new interior rocker carpet sections, and full carpet floor mats. The silver door sill and black interior scuff plates are new, the door panels are refurbed units from the local Pick and Pull. New headliner, complete seat belts and RJS racing harnesses. Seats are classic mesh headrest Recaros, some of the fabric panels have been replaced on driver's seat. Dash has a single crack, but was covered with quality cloth/suede Dashmat-style dash cover. All gagues work, new dash bulbs two seasons ago, but clock loses time daily. The glove box is only a door, but an original, OEM Nissan part is included and awaits the next caretaker. Quality high power head unit/stereo, rear MSA 6x9 speaker deck, with 8 inch powered Bazooka subwoofer. Wired for door speakers and door locks, but both removed (and included) during recent interior refresh. The car runs wonderfully, stops on a dime, and has the best transmission I have in the fleet. No rust through, and any surface rust was ground out, fixed and 'chemically sealed' in door frame when recently refurbished with new door seals. No other rust found when cleaning out door sills, entire engine bay, exhaust system install, rear CV service, nor when refurbishing brake system. There are many other parts that go with car, including original steering wheel (in very nice condition, I can't use it due to my and its size), a complete, nice condition wiring harness, front bumperettes, and other bits. Custom paint spray cans to match come with car, exterior has 350z Nismo stripes; they are only decals and can be removed. The car was crafted for autocross and the builder and his sons enjoyed a few seasons at local events before selling to local Datsun/Nissan roadster enthusiast. The second owner since build/swap had it during the years ~1998-2003, and simply used as a nice daily driver, putting on several NOS/OEM Nissan exterior and engine parts whenever serviced. I purchased the 240Z turbo in 2003 and used as autocrosser and daily driver, now retired for shows and drives. The car is always garaged, save for about two years in the early 2000's. There are some bits of sorting left for the discerning owner, but for most interested parties, this car is ready to roll. The car is owned outright, title available, and car is available for show upon request/arrangement. I have sold several cars via internet in the past, always enthusiast-level cars with great success, and this car can be shipped. Pricing at $14,000, with some room for negotiation. Available for any questions. Eric G
  3. Something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/T3-T4-T3-T4-T04E-Universal-Turbo-Charger-Kit-WASTEGATE-INTERCOOLER-PIPING-/390750137211 comes with t3/4 turbo, an intercooler, some piping, a waste gate, and some other goodies…. Im mainly interested in it because it seems to be decently comprehensive and cheap… on the other hand I'm skeptical of it for the same reason…. i know the intercooler will be crap but I'm probably only going to be running 10psi or so, so i don't need the best of the best but what do you guys think about the turbo and the other parts? and in general opinions of ebay things like this? -thanks
