  1. The problem for informative forums like his 'grate sight' is that people come for the information and then yak about it on social media without contributing here. In other words this site is used but not replenished.
  2. Didn't think that the Z33 had rev match, so was it a bit slow? I prefer the look of the Z33 and that's crucial for a race car LOL.
  3. They look great but I don't know why they are so expensive.
  4. To ship to 4370, Australia, it's not hard to do, pay by Paypal. By 'gear set' I mean just the crown wheel and pinion which means that it would be easy to pack. PM best, cheers, Richard.
  5. It's basically the same as what came OE behind SR20's so it should fit but chasing unusual auto applications gets very frustrating, the good shops have heaps of regular work and don't have to spend the time sorting out something different while those that may be good but you're not sure want to mortgage your vital body parts in payment.
  6. Thanks Gollum, I had a feeling that you would come up with something interesting and practical.
  7. So, a Honda 2000 engine and gearbox? I like the sound of that, BUT, will the gearbox handle turbo power? I know that you said that the transmission is fine but how fine? I'm thinking that 400 horses at the wheels would be tops. A budget engine rebuild would be lower compression pistons and stock everything else? Wonder how it would go with E85 fuel with the stock pistons?
  8. Thanks fellas for the very useful contributions, cheers. I should have mentioned that using an auto trans is a option but weight is crucial with this project, at present I'm looking at what autos may bolt up to a SR20DET, the manual option for it would be the Silvia gearbox with a close ratio Kameari gear set which is the sensible option. But 'sensible' does not always win LOL
  9. That's the automatic transmission used in the Z31 300ZX and other Nissans of that vintage, I can get one good to hold 450 hp with full engine braking and convertible to full manual shift, no electronics. But first I have to know if it will bolt straight up to a SR20, anyone know?
  10. A bump for this monster project, have been thinking about putting a stock configuration VQ30DET into the circuit racer 280ZX but it looks like the engine will not go far enough back for the sump to clear the Xmember.
  11. And the effective length of a bend is different to a straight anyway.
  12. Say around 400whp capable with a rear drive gearbox that will handle such power, a Mustang Ecoboost would do but virtually unavailable in Straya so back to square one. Spending too much money on the other project so this would be a 'done properly but not lavishly' thing for circuit racing so no crate engine, used Japanese preferred but not essential. Thinking that someone here may just have experience with a not so popular engine that goes better than it looks.
  13. Thanks fellas, will pass the contributed info on to him. Link to cryogenic treated rotor info for those interested http://www.frozenrotors.com/about/why-deep-cryogenics/
  14. Have used the Carbotech XP10 compound on my race car and have recommended them. But yes, the racing class my friend runs in requires the use of standard OE brakes, he is improving the usual stuff like cooling and compounds but there are also more subtle possibilities like shims made of ? to reduce pad/bucket heat transfer, modifications to the OE parts, heat/freeze treated rotors, heat extracting wheels and so on. He has to use 14x6 period style wheels. It's all about attention to detail with his car class.
