  1. It's got 280 front and 280 back, the vine number will tell for sure what year it is. Title sounds like it might be wrong, might be an issue getting an out of state transfer if it's titled incorrectly. The vin is what matters when licencing.
  2. The car pictured is a late 74 260Z or a 75-78 280Z. The vin # for the 260Z reads "RLS30" the 280Z will read "HLS30". The remaining 6 characters are the production number and will us what year it was built.
  3. I wish they had a website listing their available parts and prices. Looks to be good quality parts and no one else is making them.
  4. Be weary of their captured nut locations, I had to move mine forward about 3/8"
  5. Two banks of three. you can break it up by alternating firing order, making it 1,2,3 and 4,5,6 or alternating cylinders to equalize the fuel rail, 1,3,5 and 2,4,6.
  6. Series 1 chassis, gutted and slutted, L28ET swap, 15x7 keizers, wieghed 2105 without driver at the DNI shootout before they changed the name to DNI shootout.
  7. Any idea when those of us who got bumped can expect shipment? Can we choose a different color to expedite?
  8. On the topic of shipping USPS Priority offers tyvek envelopes which they will supply for free. You can even order a pile of them and they will deliver to your home for free (same for all shipping supplies). They should ship pretty cheap, i've received a number fo shirts shipped this way.
  9. The Hako at the Eneos booth was awesome as well just with a single cam L6. The linkage for the RHD vehicle to the triples on the L6 looked a bit "Rube Goldbergesque"
  10. All you need is a 280zx turbo donor, or just the turbo, injectors, ecu, harness, exhaust manifold and oil pan. thats 180 hp stock, crank up the boost and you can get 200 whp pretty easy, add an intercooler and you can get about 250 whp. any more than that and you'll need to upsize injectors and deal with some sort of upgraded management, and likely head studs, and MLS gasket. Or you can get some dumpy v8 of your choice and a spool of welding wire and get to work.
  11. That's what the guy at the OSG booth quoted last year. He was a little light on a technical knowledge, he might well have been off on price as well. It's not advertised anywhere that I have found. I've found a blog that quoted the head at $32k and another at $30k. Rumored production numbers in the single digits the price might go up every time someone actually tries to buy one.
  12. They had the same setup in the black S30 last year, they dyno sheet showed 376 hp, not sure if that was supposed to be crank or flywheel. I saw this car and just assumed it was the same didn't bother looking at the display for additional info. The guy last year claimed the inner finder restricted airflow on the S30, the hako engine bay is even smaller and the hako was of course RHD only, The S30 would have fit better if they had made the head flow the opposite direction wiht the carbs in the left hand side and exhaust on the right hand side. It is definitely a thing of beauty. Last year the OS
  13. The G nose often trims a bif off the front lower edge of the fender still the wrong offset, just someone wanted reverse offset wheels bad enough to make it work. No reason for wheels that narrow to have that much offset.
  14. Wheels are wrong offset. Shoulda been closer to zero.
  15. Why not take them to a machine hop and have them milled flat?
  16. Not a fan either, FLares that don't cover the rear of the tire are the very definition of a ricer mod, looks over function. Also not super impressed with the build quality of the" ZDREAM" car. Don't get me wrong, it's a very nice car but just about every car at SEMA is detailed to the nth degree. They apparently painted the car before cutting the wheel wells out for the rear flares, then didn't bother repainting the welds on the inside, you could see the exposed welds and burnt paint through the hatch.
  17. The sign at the both claimed a Robello 3.3L with a dyno chart showing 376.87 HP and 281.82 TQ. Peak HP was at about 7700 RPM and fell off from there to 9k rpm. The guy I spoke with seemed a bit light on technical info and eventually just handed me a brochure.
  18. Lack technical knowledge? Sell differentials.

  19. The BS about the early car having a different offset annoys me. That and the talking up how the strut bar made the car handle so much better. Otherwise pretty mild build, nice to see someone tackle a car that isn't one of the 12 domestic models that overhauling rotates through.
