  1. I have not. I have a lot of other things going on. The DBW is a side project that I will be working on over the next year or so. My first step in making the throttle body adapter to get the newer VQ/VK style throttle mounted to the intake, which is designed for the Q45 90mm throttle body. Then I have to add in all the wires needed for it, which require a complete tear down of the harness. Another thing most don't think about is having to mount an additional brake pedal sensor and a clutch sensor so the ECU can cut throttle when those are applied. I have all the supplies, just don't have the time
  2. I am embarking on this journey. I decided to go with the 350z throttle pedal because it mounts to a vertical firewall with a metal bracket and the pedal sensor it detachable, so if it breaks, it easy to replace. I have an RB25, so I am just going to fabricate an adapter plate for a VK45 throttle body, it's about 75mm. I also run an Elite 2500. It's currently in the car running on a cable throttle. I will keep everyone updated.
  3. If you are in the US, the 300zx will be your parts source. The Skyline diff and axles are similar in the aspect as they are used with the T3 kit. The axles might be a different length, but that will be changed. The diff exterior would be the same, but the gearing is different on the 300zx, but that would be better for our roads anyway. I used all 300zx stuff with my T3 setup, well except the hubs. I used S13 hubs to retain 4 lug.
  4. I am in the Springs. Trying to meet other Colorado classic Z owners.
  5. He was the last motorcycle to go, fastest qualifying. He was moving when he went by us. The driver's had been complaining about the too being like a ribbon. I suspect it's from the heavy construction vehicles. They are rebuilding the visitor center at the top. I had a lot of fun but it was a long day. To get a good spectator spot, you have to show up on the mountain at 2:00am. We didn't get off the mountain till about 7:00pm. Anyways, here is some Z car content. Upgrade my tails to new JDM lights. They are new blem units. All bulbs function as intended minus the small center parking lights. I now have all LEDs in them.
  6. Thanks man! Pikes peak really isn't 23 minutes away. Takes me about 25 minutes to get to the toll booth and then 45 minutes to drive up. I have tickets to the Hill climb at the end if the month. Great driving roads around here though
  7. I did the hydraulic power steering for three different reasons. I already had the power steering pump for the RB, rebuild support is better for the Subaru rack, and the under dash area is neater. My rack was getting sloppy and was needing rebuilt or replaced anyway. For downhill, my brakes are overbuilt anyway with vented in the front and back.
  8. Another thing I haven't shown is I replaced all the carpet and rear panels.
  9. Yes, it's Colorado Springs. I don't have a house yet, so my car lives in an enclosed car trailer in storage. Good thing I can unload it whenever I want. Next, now that I have the Haltech, is electronic throttle. This allows for cruise control and rev matching. This is the photo if my trailer which doubles as my garage. My driveshaft was out because the shop that made it absolutely could not balance it. A shop out here in Colorado Springs successfully balanced it for me. I also need to get it on a Dyno to see how bad 83% atmosphere is for horsepower.
  10. So a long time since an update. Big life changes require big changes in modification. I recently moved to 6000ft of elevation after my retirement from the Marine Corps. So the dusty environment and elevation would do for the trusty ITB. So enter an RB25DET. Megasquirt is gone too, time for a real ECU, an Elite 2500. Currently the engine has a Chinese turbo, a Freddy intake, and bunch of fabrication and parts from my previous L28ET. Still sitting on my custom engine mounts. I rebuilt the transmission due to a bad bearing. I also half installed a T3 rear conversion with Z32 brakes and R200. I also mounted a narrowed WRX steering rack for power steering and installed a Vintage Air HVAC with the RB compressor
  11. Reflowing the solder on the MAF is a common thing on those. It happens from the MAF not being bolted and flopping around. It stresses the connector and cracks the solder joints.
  12. The hazard switch on the LHD 240z is to the right of the steering wheel, so I would assume it's to the left on the RHD. It is one of two holes, the other is the cig lighter. http://zhome.com/Classic/Restore/dash.htm
  13. the static timing value should match the indication on the pulley. If you set static at 20 degrees, the timing light should indicate at the 20 degree value on the pulley. Its the 5th mark according to the picture I have attached. My 0 degree is painted red and the rest are white.
