Thanks everybody! I'm starting to get really excited now. 

 

Welded up a fan shroud for my electric fan out of some more stainless! I love working with it, pretty easy, looks great, and easier to TIG weld.

Hey Chris,just read the thread and it looks like you're doing an awesome job man. I'm actually pretty close to you in Maple Ridge. I currently have a mark 3 supra with a 7m, hoping to buy a 280z donor car soon. Anyways, keep up the good work!

yea im lookin at either a greddy or HKS

 

 

I've got a brand new Cometic MLS in packaging I'll ship you for 85% of whatever it costs new.

(Cometic's website now redirects to shopengineparts.com)

 

I ordered one when the PO of my 7m told me he replaced the headgasket with a cometic, but not with an MLS.  I popped the top to replace it, and it turns out it WAS an MLS. :D  Bonus!

Hey Suprabog, sounds awesome! We will defiantly have to go for a cruise once we both get running! If you need any help or have any questions let me know and i'll try to help best I can although sometimes I don't think I know what i am doing haha.

 

Hey badjuju, sorry but I am way past putting the head gasket in! Thanks for the offer though.

 

 

Update!

 

Got some gauges:

And made up a mount for my hall sensor trigger wheel:

Also been doing lots of wiring so the harness is almost done! Then i'll be trying to hook up all the other small wiring for gauges, ignition and some other relays etc.

Chris,

 

Like the look of the build, love the rad piping. I think you'll probably already be doing it as you have shimmed the oil pump but its probably worth changing the oil cooler setup to thermostat controlled from pressure controlled (good write-up here on it). I'm running a 7mgte in a 260z at the moment, can say its a lot of fun to drive! Will eventually switch to an aftermarket ECU I think so will be watching keenly, same for how you wire up your rev counter

Thats looks beautiful.  Excellent fab work and welding as Lance mentioned the pie-cuts are fabulous.

 

You could have shaved a month off the build by just buying bends hahahaha

 

Unlike many, the pie cuts here are done well. Normally not a fan, but here I don't mind them

Thanks, and your car looks great! Any info on wiring in the VEMS would be great as well, ordering mine in a few weeks.

Looking forward to seeing it running, and hopefully mine back up and running this year.

What do you use to do the pie-cuts, and why (other than a tight/custom/changing radius bend) would you do them? Bandsaw? It looks great, but it also looks like a lot of cutting, grinding, and welding.


BLOZ UP.com
It is not recommended to confirm proper installation by driving into walls or other barriers as this could cause personal injury or damage to the vehicle.

Well I've decided to give a bit of an update rather than just the previous video:

 

  • Accidentally shorted the VEMS due to 1 wire... So i did what I should have done and picked up a Haltech S500 to get it running in the previous video
  • Tranny is KOD, so I will be rebuilding that over my winter break
  • No Hp/Tq numbers yet, did get a chance to run it on the dyno but no power pulls, I would like to break it in first
  • Going to need to re-wire the engine bay
  • Also going to have to change the BOV, has major leakage upon idle and low boost <1lb 
  • most likely will be running new fuel lines, current ones are too weak
  • Also will be putting in a different FPR
  •  

Hopefully when It is rewired and plumbed Ill tune it too 12lbs and see how that goes!!

 

BLOZ UP - I found an excel spread sheet on google that allows me to plug in my required variables and it will tell me how long to cut and at what angle I need to cut at:

Thats the longest i've ever seen a 7m run without a blown headgasket or rod knock. Congrats.
