  1. I'm pretty sure this is the first Z ever with a Maserati V8 in it, I have not seen one on any other forums but I could be wrong. I've had it going & had it's first test drive on the weekend... few bugs to iron out tho! IMG_1200 (1).MOV
  2. Lol! I started this project back in Nov 1999. I put up a thread here in '03 with an S15 SR20DET & 6 speed conversion but things have changed slightly over the years. Here's the original topic below, however I will be posting a new topic with this conversion soon.
  3. I've actually put a 3.2L in my 240Z...
  4. Very nice station wagon indeed!!
  5. LOL!! Not letting the cat out of the bag just yet, last time I posted what engine I was putting in (SR20DET) half a dozen Zeders copied & finished before me... not too far to go though.
  6. It's been a while since I was last on here but I took ur advice DavyZ, SR20 out... twin turbo V8 in (hopefully it works out) with a few other changes as well.
  7. Has anyone relocated their brake booster (under the dash) & clutch master cylinder due to engine being too wide? Need to know if a kit is available or what mods are required. Thanx in advance.
  8. Hi guys, I've got stuck into the Z again, this time working on the front guards & spoiler. They have been shaped & ready to be glassed up. Also been working on the front end suspension, I've changed the whole set up now & used S4/5 RX-7 stuts etc & made my own adjustable castor/camber tops. I've also fabricated a new engine x-member. Nick.
  9. I am now selling my set up pictured below. It includes the modified x-member that's beed powder coated & comes with adjustable LCA camber kit, red urethane mounts, & custom fab'd engine brackets. I am now going power steering & my car being RHD doesn't leave enough room for the boss/head of the MX-5 (Miata P/S rack). But there is plenty of room for LHD cars. No mods are needed, just bolt it in. Nick.
  10. Finally, after so long I decided to pull my finger out & give my thumb ago... so I got stuck into the doors. The door shells were perfect, just surface rust but the skins needed changing (dented & rusty). The door shells were garnet blasted then sprayed with POR 15 followed by fabricating new double intrusion bars made from T6061 alloy. These are much stronger than the single flimsy original pressed steel type. There has also been a change to the door handles, out with the old & in with the new... now sporting the R32 Skyline type.
  11. Anyone see this car? http://www.classiczcars.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=14961&cat=500&page=1 It got my attention over at classiczcars.com. If anyone can provide more info & pics please let me know, I'm quite interested in seeing what else has been modified on this 240Z. Regards, Nick.
