  1. I assume it's the same ones Black Dragon used to sell. Mine came in completely different packaging and arrived in good shape. I will agree with grannyknot though. I had to do a lot of bending and trimming just to get it to bolt in, and that doesn't even get you close to fixing alignment issues if you want even gaps for paint.
  2. Looking for a stock T3 turbo or someones used T3/T4 or RB25 turbo that they've upgraded from in usable condition. Also looking for a same side intercoooler before I go digging in junkyards for all this
  3. I don't think anyone makes a replacement panel. Your best bet would be to find a car that's being recycled and hack it out of there or somehow cut the panel from a junkyard S30 if you can find one.
  4. Rear hatch from the 2+2 is not interchangeable. In fact most things behind to the rear of the firewall/dash can't be swapped, except for suspension/brakes/diff/fuel tank/lights, and a few other odd trim pieces.
  5. Since you seem to have the funds going for an LS6 instead of some version of the 5.3 like so many people, Apex or Hoke are definitely going to be your highest quality options, though you definitely pay the price for them.
  6. 77-78 was a completely different tank due to the change to a space saver spare tire.
  7. ZFever makes the aluminum replacements. Ross's SleeperZ thread has a section towards the end where he talks about his experience with it. Didn't seem worth it for the price he paid.
  8. Oh, I forget... double check what year your distributor is. I think the '81 was slightly different from the '82-'83, but you'll have to search yourself what the exact differences are. Though I think the optical wheel makes the differences null.
  9. Everyone can ignore this. The grounds are all functionally identical even though they're labeled differently. They're all tied together on the board and I confirmed this by checking continuity on different pins, and across spare ground and sensor ground wires with the harness connected to the ecu. I'm entirely overthinking this....
  10. Is that on a 240 or a 280? Seems like there are no spot welds on the top side of the rail where you attached the crossmember. It's been a bit since I've been able to compare side by side on with the shell I parted out, but supposedly the 280 had more spot welds throughout holding everything together.
  11. Hi all, hoping this is a better place to put these few questions than on my build thread. Firstly, it's important to note that I got the v3.57 MS3X I have from a past member here along with his old chassis who moved on to a Porsche project. It was purchased new and never used, the harness was mostly done and for the most part has been really easy to start finishing with the bits of free time I have! I've double checked almost all of the pin outs at this point along with making sure that cables are going to the correct colors, and most everything seems totally normal. The only wires that aren't pinned right now are ones I would never have used and the past owner seems to have done a mostly great job on the harness. There's one thing I'm concerned about though. On the main plug, the crank sensor ground and input should both be in the shielded wire correct? My issue is that the sensor ground in the shielded wire is supposed to be going to Pin #1 and it's pinned to 8 right now which is listed as a spare gnd. The crank sensor shield is also listed as Pin #2, but that just seems to be another ground wire on my harness that was routed out towards the sensors. The extra wire in the shielded cable that should be in Pn #2 on the hardware guide just seems to have been spliced into one of the chassis grounds. Will either of these things cause issues. Do I need to do a few repins? My last hold up is the sensor grounds. They're all listed as going to the Black/White cable, I'm not entirely sure of the best practice for splicing them, but I can figure that out. My concern is that the black/white is supposed to be Pin #7 according to the hardware guide, but is pinned to #9 on my harness (another one listed as a spare gnd), and there's nothing in Pin #7.
  12. https://www.diyautotune.com/support/tech/hardware/nissan-trigger-disc/ Wiring mine right now. wiring notes with correct colors are the bottom of this guide. This guide should help you if you're using an optical trigger disk. Are you using the dizzy for crank and cam signal? Things will be different if you have a crank sensor mounted to the crank pulley and getting signal from that or from a sensor reading off the flywheel like some people have done.
  13. Rest of your suspension can stay stock. Keep rubber rubber bushings on the tc rods or replace them with aftermarket. Stock runs the risk of breaking with the stiffness of poly bushings. Otherwise most everything else can go to poly bushings without issues
  14. If you're upgrading to EFI you can look at 280z tanks up to '76 as well. It used to be a common upgrade for those that didn't want a fuel cell. Nearly identical dimensions, just slightly different lengths on the fuel tank straps, and slightly more baffling (though not much to be honest if you've seen one cut open) I'll second ZCarSource for original and hard to find parts, though they're definitely quite expensive and I'd check ebay and facebook pages before going to them.
  15. Z Car Depot has been very good to me and has decent prices in general. Though for general wear and tear things it'd be easier and cheaper to find them at your local auto store or on rockauto unless you really want something OEM that your dealer doesn't have available.
