  1. Looking for a nice set of used windshield trim (no major dings or bends). I actually only need the top piece and the "finishing" pieces, I have the 2 pieces that cover the bottom/sides. If you have something laying around ...
  2. Thanks for the response. I was thinking passenger side kick panel I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to run into too many issues down the line.
  3. And did you run into any issues after the fact? I have a torn apart 240 and I'm trying to minimize any negative impact down the road. As in ... "oh crap I forgot that interior plastic panel went over that" or something like that. Sorry if this has been covered before ...
  4. I've been doing a fair amount of powder coating and have been really pleased with the results. Does anyone know of any resources to match a paint code (ppg, factory, etc.) to a powder coat? I realize that there are some color hue devices and color matching services but is there an easier way to do it? I'd dig more into it if I was planning on doing this professionally but all I really need to do is match a couple/three colors.
  5. Resurrecting this thread as I finally have some video to post. This is far from being a "best" run, as there was some problems with the torque converter. I think this run was in the middle 7's. The car has gone much faster. Anyway ... enjoy!

  7. I was kind of wondering about this myself. I have an s30 but with the f54 block and I'm planning on laying down 450ish HP. I have a BW t5 in my garage to do the swap but I'm wondering how much it will hold.
  8. So, I was at work today and I was really looking forward to coming home to work on my z. The body work is almost done and I'm looking forward to paint. Anyway, my wife calls me around noonish and says she went to do some laundry in the garage and something smelled funny. Okay, well my wife often empties the trash in the kitchen and leaves the bag in the garage instead of walking the extra 5 feet to the outside door that leads to the side of the house and our trash cans. It's her way of reminding me that I am neglecting my manly trash duties. "Did you leave a bag of trash in the garage?"
  9. Using it to help pay my property taxes . Gotta love CA.
  10. My dad is running 2 inlines (Chevy 250's) in his dragster. It actually runs like one big inline 12. It sounds awesome. Definitely a head turner when we take it out. http://www.sissellsautomotive.com/
  11. Thanks Tony. I think I have a plan of attack for this weekend. Just in case someone searches this post in the future here's some related info from an article I came across that jives with what you're suggesting. How can I reduce ignition noise? Electromagnetic Radio Frequency Interference (EMI or RFI) from the engine’s ignition can be a major problem when trying to capture sensitive electronic instrument data adjacent to a high compression spark-ignition engine. RFI problems worsen as the engine’s throttle is opened (increased cylinder pressure raises the peak
  12. My Dad's shop has been running this Dyno combo for years. It's older but has always done the trick. Up until recently he was using an old 386 running Dos and never had a problem. That box died so we installed the software onto another more recent machine I had laying around. I mean it's still old as hell but is reminescent of the newer computers , thin metal and plastic case rather then the heavy metal cases on most of the old 286/386 machines. Anyway, all seemed well we did a couple low rpm pulls on a motor and the data acquisition looked good. We got numbers that made sense. 2 weeks later he
  13. Tide (powdered kind) + whatever thinner you have lying around. Be careful as it's slippery.
