LS3 based 403 stroker using Callies Compstar crank and rods, along with SRP pistons. The heads are L92 and the injectors are 48#. Intake is a stock Ls3 and the Tbody is a nick williams. Oil system on this one is a DRYSUMP from Nutter Racing Engines. The lines are Parker Pushlok and the tank is a butlerbuilt square 4 gallon. We plumb it with a Moroso -16 vent tank and also vent the PCV system with twin tanks plumbed to both chambers of the top of the motor. Everything is managed by the FAST XFI and XIM systems and all data is monitored with the integrated FAST DASH with data logging.

The Drivetrain consists if a custom T56 I hand built, and a Ford 8.8 rear IRS, that I also completely rebuilt. The car is NOT a street car and is going to start the 2015 season as a Time Trial car in NASA and move over to wheel to wheel in VINTAGE Outlaw.

After 15 years I decided to move away from my beloved RB and jump over to the dark side. As most people can attest to once you go fast its like a drug and you want more and more. Well I had reached the depth of my wallet with the rb. If I wanted to go faster and not eat up cranks and rods, I needed to drysump. I crunched numbers ,sold the rb and got into a truck motor and everything I needed to go fast and had enough left over to have anti roll installed and a parachute ;> .

 

So here it is.

2000 Silverado 5.3 w BTR stage 2 turbo cam, rocker trunnion upgrade, titanium springs and retainers, LS7 MLS head gasket, a hi volume/pressure melling oil pump, 1600 cc injectors spraying E85, and a Borg warner S480 turbo.

 

This will be mated to a powerglide with 3:70ish gearing in a 8.8 that is 4 linked.

 

This was a finished project that I'm swapping motors so if you want the specs on the rest of the car swing over to the rb forum and check out my builid thread over there.

 

I have a build thread going called Unnatural Aspiration part 4 ;>

Uh, say what. lol. Its a bit vise versa :) 

Unless you're talking belt wise... then its pretty simple:

But.... that alternator is too big for my liking. So I want to fab up a mini alternator on the low passenger side.

Hi guys,

 

New to the Z world, I just bought this car from a gentleman in Illinois.  Seemed like he really cared about the car but had to let it go.  I'm not sure if he was a poster on this forum but he did mention it.  

 

It's a 1975 280z.

Most of this is quoted from the seller's listing.  There's a lot more to say but here's the meat and potatoes.

 

1. 1999 GM LS1 from Trans Am with 118,000 miles, GM unlocked computer, PSI Conversions harness

New water pump, oil pump, timing chain, starter, rebuilt injectors (Oside Tiger), fuel pump (MSD), fuel regulator,

3” into 2.5” all stainless, tig welded exhaust with Vibrant resonator and Magna Flow muffler, all connections are V-bands.

 

2. Professionally rebuilt 4L60E transmission and torque convertor (less than 500 miles), OEM Camaro shifter with custom weldedand smoothed shifter box housed in trans tunnel, custom solid brass shift knob (looks like a manual),

shortened shifter, JCI drive shaft, OEM rear end. The rear suspension is stock for the most part with exception of
T3 coilovers and all poly bushings.

 

6. CUSTOM one-off American Racing forged wheels, model VN477, satin black 17x9 and 17x9.5

Brand new Continental Extreme DWS tires 245/45-17 front, 275/40-17 rear
Custom yellow “continental” tire letters
