  1. Cooling problems on my 280ZX were fixed by removing the stock bonnet vent inserts and replacing them with coarse mesh with a mini air dam in front to kick the air over the vent and create a low pressure area over the vent.
  2. Any problem with the RB25's radiator? Are hose sizes a problem? Because any 3 core aluminium radiator that fits will be sufficient cooling wise.
  3. Look at that engine setback, brilliant, should be 50:50 front/rear.
  4. As a furriner it's interesting to see the prices that out of the usual historic cars with a hook bring. There seems to be a excessively larger bonus on the price than seems to make sense but I guess that the buyers know what they are doing because certainly we are talking investments here.
  5. Haltech for one will give you what you need.
  6. Did the US '79's come only with a tin top instead of the dreaded targa? You Murricans were damn lucky to get the 2+0, the 2+2 is the real ugly step child.
  7. Small world Jon, Z seems to be a good one.
  8. Looking at your video it looks like you are still running a locked diff which will be jerky in corners and not give a smooth drive transition like a really good clutch type LSD will. OS Giken FTW. Getting a 280ZX track worthy is a huge job so well done there, the 280ZX is one of those in between cars, still old school and lacking in powertrain development that benefited later model Z's.
  9. As grannyknot said, what about the ball joints? At a quick glance to me it seems that the sway bar will exert an upward thrust load on the ball joint as well as the usual downward thrust, a load the ball joint is not designed for. It's all very well being creative but in my experience any mod like this has to be thought through and the benefits weighed against the negatives. If sway bar operation is unsatisfactory then eg look at using a three piece bar running on solid bearings to give a much more progressive response.
  10. Hope that you don't think that you will get cheap power here, if you are serious and have the bucks then with the right advice you will end up with a great motor.
  11. Not just me again, oh well, enjoy.
  12. A more practical setup is to use a single turbo, something like a properly matched ball bearing Garrett will give you great all round performance with 'no worries' turbo lag. Plus it involves a quicker build which trust me is always a plus.
  13. What Neverdone said, as far as reliability goes the weak point is the bits between the R200 and the wheels.
