  1. Z Car Garage makes a great bolt in solution that appears to be able to handle plenty of power, much more than what you're planning. Expensive, but totally bolt in. The super 8.8 setup basically requires that you change your entire rear end, and if you're putting big brakes, 5 lug, etc. in the rear, then you kind of have to do the front now too. Lots of scope creep, vs simply dropping in the ZCG axles and being done.
  2. I'm assuming that head was for an NA build, doesn't removing the liners ruin the flow of the head? I have an N47 with liners removed, I was under the assumption it was junk based on research, and was planning to replace it with the N42 I have... eventually.
  3. They're offering it in three types, A, B, and C. From what I can gather from the PDF, A comes bare, B and C come with a choice of valve guides and valve seats. http://www.pams-japan.com/30cafe/project.php
  4. Yeah I've been following that. Pretty impressive project, it's basically the ultimate N42 head. And it'll only cost you about $5500 to $6800 depending which of the three types you go for. Unrealistic for most of us unfortunately, but for those looking for big power, might be worth it.
  5. Doesn't look that bad. Why not clean it up and reuse it?
  6. Alright, like title says I'm looking to see if anyone has a copy of this video from years ago, pre-2010. It was a video of a Z doing a quarter mile run, it was a burnt orange color, had ZG flares, and bronze or dark gray 6 or 7 spoke modern wheels. I think it was recorded in Japan. It ran something like a low 10, was powered by, IIRC, an L28 stroker turbo that was clearly making a lot of power, and what I assume was a sequential, but maybe it was a dog box, I'm not sure. It was hosted on google videos so I suspect it's gone from the internet unless someone saved it. Long shot, but maybe someone has it.
  7. That's better, looks like you've got a solid starting point.
  8. Welcome! Can't see your images, I think you need to change the format. I have no idea what .heic is.
  9. Is the engine builder Datsun Spirit? He's a capable engine builder by all appearances, but some time ago I noticed that the estimated power figures that he lists on his site with his different engine builds went from being crank HP to wheel HP. As crank HP figures, they were impressive, but feasible, but as WHP numbers, I think they're outlandish, and I question his ability to follow through. 350whp would be about 400hp+ at the crank which is what the all out drag race motors they build in Japan make.
  10. 2015 Mustang rear brakes that are probably 13" and Toyota brakes up front I don't think is going to be a good combo given that the front brakes do most of the braking. So I'd upgrade those to something more appropriate. Nothing really sticks out to me as a major problem except maybe sway bars, I would probably just upgrade as needed. Sounds like you've already done a ton of upgrades already if you've got a Ford 8.8 diff and a turbo LS. Since it's just a street car I don't know how quickly you'll find the limit of the components you have, and I don't know your driving style, if you're just hammering it on straights, or trying to push it in corners. Another thing that just occurred to me, which I don't see any mention of, is the structure of your car. Do you have subframe connectors or any other chassis strengthening? If not, I would do subframe connectors at a minimum.
  11. Who is the builder? Datsun Spirit? 300whp is a ton of power for an L stroker, and 350whp is all out race build territory, unless you get one of the DOHC heads that member Derek has been working on. What is the intended use for the car? If you want a street car to cruise around in, I'd go with the turbo option, since you can have a pretty tame and streetable 300whp turbo engine. Probably a lot cheaper too compared to getting that kind of power out of an NA stroker.
  12. No, you can pull the engine complete with transmission. Helps if you have a load leveler.
  13. Based on what I've read, removing the liners ruins the port flow because the port is too big.
  14. There's an article about the KN20 head on Road and Track, nice to see this thing get some recognition. https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/a37360407/datsunworks-kn20-head-brings-dohc-to-the-240z/
  15. Yes, I don't think they look good. A good H4 headlight is plenty bright and looks appropriate.
