  1. Installed the MSA airdam yesterday. I gotta say this thing made me do this the whole time...... I couldn't get it to fit, line up, or stay straight. So after an hour, I finally gave up and just said it looks perfect and started drilling some holes. How the heck are these things supposed to mount? Some people say mount in the back of the headlight buckets and others say in the front. I obviously installed it on the back side but its about a quarter inch too wide on each side. Is this so you can install fender flares? Arggggggggg..................................
  2. Honestly it doesnt feel that great right now, but I think that will go away over time. The original steering wheel is about 4.5 inches from the base and the setup I have now is about 7.25 inches out from the base ( 6 inches total from moma base/nrg top ). I ended up just moving my seat back, but it really sucks using the blinkers as you need to remove your hand from the steering wheel to flip it up or down. I was thinking about modifying the blinker lever, maybe cut and weld it angled, or i can just get rid of the nrg quick release haha. Moving to a new steering wheel made a huge difference fo
  3. Looks like they are no longer available?..argg. Just wondering how much they cost when they were around? Thanks for the info though
  4. A quick update: Installed my Christmas presents from the wife, a Momo adapter and a NRG 330mm steering wheel. I also have a NRG 2.5 quick release coming in a few days. The new wheel makes a huge difference from the old one, and the depth is pretty similar, but I'm not sure how its gonna feel with the added length of the the quick release.
  5. So I installed the coil-overs this weekend....and it seems that going with the stock top hats really doesn't leave much room for lowering ...BOOOOOO. ----- All you really need to do to use the stock hats is to drill out the center so they will fit on the new illumina dampers as they are to big and aren't slotted. Then place the supplied washers and bolt them up. Pretty easy... With coil adjustments this high the car is like a lifted monster truck, haha. With around 3-4 inches of spaces between the fenders and tire but it has almost full travel. If i go this
  6. Gotta thank Gabriel & Gia over at Technotoytuning.com. I pick up some of there pre-assembled coilover's with 200 pound springs in the front and decided to stick with the stock top hats for now though, as I really don't want to cut into the frame. Seem like there would be a few options out there for billet top hats that don't require you to cut into the wheel wells thought. I thinking about getting a few of them machined, has anybody had any luck with this? Hopefully its gonna look like this after its done with a little bit of fender rolling ( photoshop ). Also, busted
  7. hls30-01412 ( 1/1970 ) with only 21k of original miles .
  8. Picked up some XXR 531 rims ( 15x8 0 offset w/ 205-60-15 tires ) for the Datsun. Im only running the lowering springs, so the next step are some coil overs, so i can get about 1-2" more inches of drop to fill out the wheel area. Added on some Muteki Lugs
  9. Updated factory settings in the first post. My jet settings via Wolf Creek: Mikuni 40 PHH Main Air Jet 180 ( gonna test 200 next week ) Main Jet 150 Pilot Jet 62.5 ( gonna test 65 next week ) 70' 240z L28/N42 mild cam 6-1 Header w/ 2.25 pipe Electronic ignition 3.7 psi fuel pressure ( dead head - no return ) 20 BTDC Timing ( no advance ) 8mm plug cables NGK BPR6ES-11 Short Stacks with mesh caps Installing an AFR gauge next week, Ill post the readings when I get them. Any suggestions?

  12. Well, I figure out why she started running bad today......broken and mangled pilot screws on the Mikuni's.
  13. This was a good idea, thanks @Snailed. While I was fixin' up the cables today, I decided to paint the block. Had to take off the header anyways to weld in an o2 bung, so I figured i'd clean everything up while its off. Ended up just using Chevy Blue Duplicolor, as I didn't want to wait for the custom Datsun color rattle-can to ship out. Before: After:
  14. I thought it would be a great idea to start a on-going community thread on Triple Mikuni's. A place where new users and active users ( with years of knowledge ) could get/give detailed breakdowns / photos / and tuning configurations for 40 / 44 phh's. When I switched over from SU's, I really had no clue on what things were and how to configure them for my current setup. I would have to say that it's some what a pain to get solid information out on the web in one location or be able to find a detailed manual for specific needs. So I thought I would start this out by taking a couple phot
