  1. Doesn't look that bad. Why not clean it up and reuse it?
  2. 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
  3. That's better, looks like you've got a solid starting point.
  4. Welcome! Can't see your images, I think you need to change the format. I have no idea what .heic is.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. No, you can pull the engine complete with transmission. Helps if you have a load leveler.
  9. Based on what I've read, removing the liners ruins the port flow because the port is too big.
  10. 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/
  11. Yes, I don't think they look good. A good H4 headlight is plenty bright and looks appropriate.
  12. https://www.instagram.com/p/CR-vb6TrSjL/ https://www.zcarblog.com/2021/07/30/performance/datsunworks-twin-cam-power-for-your-l-series-engine.html 350hp/248ft lb at the wheels. Pretty damned impressive.
  13. I have no direct experience with them, but I know they've got a >500hp turbo L running them, along with at least one LS swap.
  14. Agreed. And I really don't understand the secretiveness for anything outside of a competitive environment, which this is not. You would think he would at least tell Derek, the manufacturer of the head, what the numbers are.
  15. IMO the rear end is the least of your concerns here, that amount of torque is going to destroy your chassis if you don't reinforce it thoroughly. Honestly, I think that engine is totally inappropriate for a Z to begin with. It weights, what, 1200lbs? A 280Z weighs only about 2600lbs. I can't imagine it drives well.
