Recommended Posts

Recently aquired a 1972 240z with 108,112 miles.

 

Having an new extra vg short block laying around and a set of cima heads and manifolds, I decided to swap the vg into a s30.

Not sure on what turbo I will run, but im looking into compturbo 6262, or a borgwarner s200.

Looking for around 550-600hp.

 

Heres my list so far:

Stock motor with ported cima heads and jwt springs

relocate position of turbo from driver to pass. side (not enough room to keep on driver side)

aeromotive fpr

walbro 485 pump

-6 feed and return line

id1000 injectors

compturbo or borgwarner turbo

custom top feed fuel rail

turbosmart wastegate

boost controller

R32 gtr front brakes calipers with custom bracket (I will be running 16" so I will try to fit the largest rotor in them.

custom intake manifold with q45 throttle body

had a pair of ARC z32 intercoolers laying around that I will have modified to a single.

z32 brake booster, master cylinder and possibly pedal

z32 clutch master and possibly pedal

possibly z32 diff installed

 

 

and thats where im at now. The paint on the car will be redone. I purchased a new center console, new seals from black dragon and a bre rear spoiler.

 

The respray will be porsche's carrera white

Some progress has been made. Motor motors with urethane have been made, transmission mount has been prototyped ( This along with a few other pieces will be made out of billet aluminum), shifter bracket done, OIl cooler bracket made, ic done. The turbo just got in yesterday ( Borg Warner Airwerks S200SX-51 aka s251), T4 twinscroll flange, the fuel rail stock came in as well. Next will be the exhaust manifold, then exhaust. That should be done in 2 weeks . . . talk about the rest as it is happening

In my experience these engines with a GTX3582R turbo will do an easy 420whp at 16psi boost. More there if you want to crank the boost up. To drive you will do lines any time you want, a very solid engine.

Another Update: Soda blasted the engine bay and got 2 coats of basecoat and another 2 to go before the clear goes on.


On the to do list:

Rebuild steering rack
Firewall bulkhead for heater core and AC

Powder coat/Zinc/Anodize Metal parts ( IC piping/crossmember/all suspension parts/ exhaust)

Custom Radiator support made and welded in

Fuel tank ( from a fuel injected Z)

Fuel lines ran

Modify new 300zx efi harness

Main goal is to get everything ready as i have my tuner coming out on 6/13/15 to tune my other z and would like to have this one up and running to get tuned too.

I will focus on the exterior and interior after the tuning is complete.
