New 280Z owner. VH build

Recommended Posts

This is a long term project that I have recently taken on.

 

The car is a 1977 280Z. It does not run and I will eventually be selling the engine and 4speed.

The engine is a '90 VH45DE. It will be coupled to a 300zx transmission.

This is a long term project. I am in school and basically broke. This will all be done by me so progress will be slow.

If you are excited and frustrated at the pace, believe me, you aren't as impatient as I am

I see you watching me. What are you doing now that you sold your motor? I'm not using my stock one.

 

I sold my L28ET. Now I have my Q45 up on stands to pull the engine trans and diff to put in my '70 240Z. I'm having trouble finding time right now but it's a start.

Dropping the Q45 out this weekend. I thought i would cut the front support but after getting everything loose I think I will roll it out in the driveway and lift the front end up and pull it out the bottom. Interestingly the rear suspension drops out as an assembly too. I do that after the E/T. I guess I'll start my own build thread lol. How you doin?
