    L28, need a bigger turbo, which one?

    anytime I see boost falling with RPM I would check valve spring pressure as well. Especially if it is stock springs with that cam. A little play on a turbo is fine and won't cause dropping boost, but it is you doing the wiggling so I can't judge that. Feeling it move is one thing, but hearing it move by hand is definitely bad.

    Wheels and offset

    This is your late Christmas present. There are so many threads on rims this one should go to the tool shed. However, All the rims you listed will work, but won't give you max tire size. I have a 71 with BC coilovers. I went with 17X8 and 225/45/17 tires. The rims were Rota RKR with a 4 offset. If they made the rims with more offset (+10) I could have fit a 8.5 on the rear with no rubbing. You do not want negative at all for stock fenders. That is for guys with flares. You need positive offset to push the rim towards the coilovers to get a wider tire in there. If lip is more important stick with zero offset or find a rim with a convex design to maximize the look.
  3. Did it. Not a bolt on deal, but easier than a LS1 swap! Nobody here should be scared. rear parking hat brakes

    L28 - 350Z 6 Speed Transmission Adapters

    just to go on record I am in for one of the kits, but have not heard back how to confirm. I don't have a running car, but am ready to install engine and trans if that helps. Waiting on this trans kit has been one of the many reasons I have procrastinated. I have a series 1 so the trans mount will be different anyway. I did email you direct, but as busy as you are I don't expect quick answers. Does the custom flywheel use the 225 mm regular or the 250 mm turbo and 2+2 larger clutch diameter? Thanks, Greg

    WTB: Hoke z32 adaptor

    I have one, but can't remember what I paid for it years ago. Still holding out for the 6 speed adapter.

    L28 - 350Z 6 Speed Transmission Adapters

    I messaged you on Facebook. Was wanting to try your adapter with the VQ37 6 speeds. I happen to have a couple good ones already. Lots of shifter, hydraulic clutch, and throwout bearing kits and spacers out there for the IS300 and supra conversions. Would love to mix and match on the Z car. The hydraulic clutch spacers makeup for the adapter, just need the starter addressed. Greg

    T56 behind an L-series

    Tim, did you get your bellhousing yet?

    very impressive. Everything that company does has been top notch and priced reasonable.

    T56 behind an L-series

    I would be in on one. I was toying with the same idea as you. So would the RB26 work if holes were slotted? I don't care about SFI rating. I also thought it was pretty close and willing to try one out. If I had a T56 ready I would have tried it out. I actually had one of the RB26 bellhousings in the shopping cart of Summit and backed out at the last minute. I keep holding out for Hokes conversion kit. I am parts manager of the largest Infiniti dealership in the nation so I can get ahold of the CD009 easily. I'd rather use a GM 6 speed as more stuff is available including mechanical speedo.

    silvermine brake adapter

    Stronger motor mounts

    I just ordered a set as well. Little pricey, but very cool. I also think I can modify them easier to move the engine back an inch. Every little bit will help with fan clearance!

    silvermine brake adapter

    I bought these big brake mounting brackets from silvermine when trying to work up my front brakes and ended up not using them. Been mounted, but never used. Cost me about $210 delivered, letting go for $170 shipping included.

    just ordered a pro unit, thanks..
  15. close. That kit is for the 2.36 offset brakes. Our cars have short offsets, closer to 1.9 inches. You need to use the parking brake kit from the 2 inch offset bronco kit. http://www.wilwood.com/BrakeKits/BrakeKitsProdRear.aspx?itemno=140-13733-DR You can only use the parking brake kit portion, unless you have 5 lug hubs. The rotors that come in the kit are multiple pattern 5 lug ones. No room to redrill for 4 lug. I used the wilwood "blanks" instead. http://www.wilwood.com/Rotors/RotorProd.aspx?itemno=160-6868 You can also get drilled and slotted versions. I was wanting just slotted, but couldn't find it. Definitely not a bolt on kit, but totally doable.
