    Yeah! This is my 4th time to Laguna Seca and I'm still amazed that I'm able to be here. I'm just getting to where I can think about lap times and not overwhelmed by the moment. The only place that was better was Circuit of The Americas in Austin, TX.

    I replaced the power steering pump because it had a seal leak. The power steering pump drivers the hydraulic brake booster.

    I'm assuming this result is due to a pretty restrictive exhaust manifold. ?

    Contorted exhaust manifold.

    The horse power restriction is in the exhaust.

    4.6 DOHC / 280Z

    Making my steering, exhaust and oil filter all work together was a nightmare. I used the Cobra intake to allow the engine to mount as far rearward as possible and the engine is mounted low for a low center of gravity (and to accommodate the Cobra intake)....the result was cutting and welding the exhaust, replacing the oil filter mount with an adapter (Moroso Remote Filter Adapter 23681). My steering rod is very close to the adapter as it is. One of my pictures shows this mess.

    4.6 DOHC / 280Z

    The thing I would do differently is to not take breaks from working on it. I would take a couple months off and forget what I was doing, especially the electronics. My objectives were to keep the stock appearance (more or less), no hood modification, keep the center of gravity low and keep the engine as far toward the rear as possible. This is gonna be a track car, it is nearly there.

    Coilover build

    I have driven this Z with these new coil overs. I used 275 lb. springs in the front and 250 lb. in the rear. Wow is it stiff! I'm not sure what would be the best spring rate.
