  1. Nice! How is the flow out the center vent? I modded my 240 vent similarly but most of the air comes out the two side vents. I've thought about redoing mine with smooth hose to see it flow improves.
  2. I’d be pulling the front end apart until I found the culprit. Try taking a tube like an empty paper towel core, put your ear to it and move it around the area with the engine running to see if you can isolate the location of the sound. If you shine a flashlight down into the front cover you can see if the chain tensioner is in place.
  3. Have you pulled the valve cover and checked to see if anything looks abnormal? Could the timing chain tensioner have fallen out of place? It's impossible to know without actually being there or hearing it in a quick video.
  4. Wow! That first one will make a nice looking bookend! I bet the aluminum plate (6061-T6?) wasn't cheap. Seems like they would have started with cheaper material for the first article. Regardless, it'll be a very nice piece when done!
  5. Seems like you'd have oil burning out the exhaust, especially just after a cold start if your valve stem seals are bad. You could try retorquing your head bolts in case your problem is a head gasket leak into the crankcase.
  6. Most people including myself, simply plumb both the valve cover and block vents to a catch can.
  7. The mustache bar should go on the aft side of the suspension uprights with the bushings facing forward...at least that is how it is on my setup with r200, 280z uprights, ttt mustache bar.
  8. @Dat73z Aaah, you are correct!! I went back and looked at my calcs and realized that I remembered incorrectly, it's been a couple of years... It is in fact the G30-660 that I was looking at. I feel better too that ATP agreed with my independent assessment :).
  9. I'm looking forward to your feedback on the performance of the G series turbo. I am considering exact same one for my setup [edit: actually it is the G30-660 that I'm considering]. Looking at the compressor map it looks to be a great turbo for a decent flowing 3 liter L6.
  10. I'm running the ttt mustache bar too. My setup didn't need the spacer nor did I have to remove the studs and use bolts. It all lined up well as best as I can tell. My setup is a z31t long nose r200/diff cover, z31t cv half shafts, rt mount, and ttt mustache bar.
  11. My guess is that you either fried the afm or ecu. There is a step by step diagnostics in the FSM. I would walk through that process.
  12. There are similar marks on my 3.0 rebello turbo after only a few thousand street miles. Weird. I'm no engine expert but I have read that it can be caused by the pistons getting too hot possibly due to knock/detonation, expanding excessively, and rubbing on the cylinder bores.
  13. Glad to hear you're still at it and looking forward to updates!
