  1. Have you figured out a way to install a speed sensor into the cd009 ?
  2. Has anyone here bought anything from carbon signal recently? I'm curious to know if things have improved. They are advertising new interior pieces that look fantastic.
  3. The whp big brake kit is finally installed, but it wasn't what they promised.
  4. Sorry for the delay, life gets in the way of project cars. I ordered a custom wiring harness from rywire. I didn't want to mess about wiring. Everything is beautifully labeled. I had to add a spacer to the intake manifold to make the dry sump tank fit. It's a 2.3 gallon tank.
  5. thanks for your help jhm! Still trying to make it work. I'll update more once I have more information and a solution.
  6. These calipers have bleed screws at both ends for easing mounting. I had a lot of positive interactions with whitehead in the past. I'm hoping they will help with this situation. I don't love the idea of the spacers. My mechanic friend is worried about leverage on the bolt, as the spacers are not threaded. I was thinking of using arp bolts for somthing stronger. Has anyone heard of bolts breaking due to spacers? Thanks Jesse
  7. The caliper when mounted with the supplied bracket would not center on the rotor. I had a machine shop make me spacers. Seems to fit now. Just need a longer bolt. Still no response from whitehead.
  8. I purchased the whitehead performance brake kit and I am having trouble installing it. I believe the shop emulated the arizona z kit, bit I'm not sure. Whitehead closed their doors and I need to get my car together to move. Can someone take a look at my pictures and see if I'm doing something wrong. Could someone please post some pictures of the caliper mount on the Arizona z car big brake kit. Thank you Jesse
  9. I'm curious to hear people's experiences long term with carbon fiber hoods. Do they fade, chip easily, or crack? Do you need hood pins on the z? What brands do you recommend? What was the actual weight savings over factory hood. Thanks
  10. Where did you get most of the carbon parts?
  11. South Bend clutch and new injectors have arrived. The shop is a little swamped with cars, but I should back in very soon. I was hoping to get it done before winter, but I think the new goal is to be road ready before spring. Why the dry sump? Just because you can? or does it help with clearance? I went with the dry sump as the k24 is a very tall engine, and I was concerned about the oil pan hanging out of the bottom of the car. I thought about trying to make a custom oil pan, but went alittle blingy. Hopefully I'll have more updates in the next month.
  12. welcome to the club. I'm also in Vancouver. I recommend Evolution Auto in Burnaby if you need mechanical work done. They serve a few Z clients and do motor swaps.
  13. I will look into reinforcing it further. I have some done. I've got a welded rollbar at the rear, and brace on the front struts. I'm just waiting on the fuel rail, clutch, spacer for dry sump, and few other things. In terms of power. Similar engine with same turbo was making 600whp. I'm planning on running less.
  14. Quick update: U joint had to be added to steering shift to fit around motor mount. Turbo manifold is done. Bolt for the crank pulley is too long to fit the ati dampner.
  15. Engine mounts made, just need to adjust one. Need a spacer for the oil pump. Transmission is now sitting in better spot.
