  1. If you are going with an aftermarket ECU like a Haltech then a engine loom maybe available outherwise it's auto electrician stuff.
  2. Pffft, just get a plug and play system, if I can do one so can you. Then it's ready to roll off to be tuned, it really can be that simple.
  3. Like the side cut away guard treatment, should be good aero, same with the minimumalist front. Not sure about the bonnet treatment though, I've always found that getting air out of the engine bay to be most important, aim for negative pressure in there. Got disorientated watching the video LOL.
  4. HybridZ is what you want to make it, I've found that there is always a great response when I have a query on a variety of topics, some quite technical. And that is current. I've yet to run across any source of Z info better than is available here. There is a big difference between this solid source of information and the numerous superficial alternatives no matter how hard they try to be real, lots of shiny paint over rust and filler. Hi Michael.
  5. So what's happening is that a Z31 turbo vacuum pump is going to be used although before I found out about that a Hella UP28 pump was ordered, duh. Would not touch the aftermarket ones given the ridiculous prices they want and they are as noisy as hell. Apparently. Just need a switch now to keep the vacuum up and then off when max is reached.
  6. LOL, very bad. Track test coming up soon so we'll see. If extra vacuum is required for a power brake setup a vacuum switch controlled electric pump seems to be the best option, if needed a vacuum tank can be added for extra capacity so its not going to be, bugger, this is not working so throw it away and try again. I hate that.
  7. Hop over to the 350Z.com forum but unless you are electronics capable I'm thinking avoid the manual swap.
  8. Thanks Tim, will check that option out. My past experience. To get good pedal feel when using a vacuum booster it has to be set up right, bit of a black art. Anyway one booster was not set up right, the brakes were light switch on/off but boy did it stop, better than anything before or after. Hence my preference for power brakes, it's just part of getting the car to perform as close to the edge as possible without using driver aids.
  9. It's for the race 350Z I bought, it has two Tilton MC's and no booster. I've always used a booster because it gives a light sensitive pedal feel which for me avoids brake lock up, anyway It's going to get it's first track test soon so we'll see.
  10. With multiple separate throttle bodies there is no way to use the usual booster setup without a vacuum pump arrangement, as far as I know. Simple question, is there a suitable alternative brake boost system available?
  11. No foreign drivers but we do have a couple of US racing tribute S30's entered. The US scene around that time was brilliant and worthy of world wide attention.
  12. Getting the individual ride heights even is my priority, if the corners are too much different then there is a car weight distribution problem that should be fixed first. IMHO As far as suspension generally goes I've always found that getting the spring rates right and even more importantly having the best 3 way dampers possible to be most important. A circuit ace car is rarely never in a state of constant dynamic so particulars like individual wheel loadings are constantly changing anyway. Attending to factors that govern that is where my priority lies.
  13. Yeah, I've never noticed a problem that could be related to corner weighting but that could be me, getting the ride heights equal on each corner F to F and R to R is as far as I go
  14. Have never bothered with corner weighting, something about it did not make sense in a vague sort of way. But what you have posted does make definite sense, same with the rear too even when accelerating. Say if when accelerating the L tyre has less grip due to track conditions and that side just happens to have an effective higher spring rate due to corner weighting.
