    single 2 1/2 pipe

    JHM and Miles, thanks for your input. Miles what size down pipes from header flange to Y pipe are you using? your system is very clean, close to what I am planning. I plan to make my own Y pipe using a 2 1/2" cutout from speedway motors and some 45 deg. bends. 2 1/2" all the way to the rear. If I ever wanted to step it up a bit I can go with 3" from the Y on back. I'm 76 (and my wild days are over ???) now and I just want a cool cruiser.

    single 2 1/2 pipe

    I am putting a mild 350 sbc in my 76 280z. I'm thinking of using shorty headers with 2 1/2 in collectors into 2 1/2 in y pipe with same size pipe and muffler all the way out. this car will be a street cruiser and maybe an occasional 1/4 mile blast. hoping to have something pleasant to drive on the street but a little bit of a sleeper. any thoughts suggestions?

    frame rails

    sorry, allow me to elucidate further. I have bought an all aluminum radiator. it is 26 in. wide, which is too wide for comfort between the frame rails. I'm thinking I will notch the frame rails directly behind the rad. cradle and box in the notch with 1/8 in plate also reinforce the bottom and outside of the frame rail with 1/8 in. plate. does that sound feasible? any suggestions welcomed. thanks

    I started with an aftermarket Grant wheel and combined it with a standard 280Z wheel. This is the results.
  13. has anyone replaced a 280z power brake booster with one from a later model nissan?
  14. around 1977 I worked with a guy who built a 240 with 350/350 combo, I drove it (with thoughts of buying) with only 3 gears it turned way too many revs for highway driving. The real turnoff though was that it was hard to steer at low speeds .engine was installed at the scarab position. the 76 280 I am working on now has the engine set back to within 1" of the firewall (I fabbed the engine mounts), distributor is old point style with pertronix conversion. ramshorn manifolds and block hugger headers both fit without steering interference. engine is centered in engine bay. will use a 2004r trans.
