  1. Yes and on track collecting some missing parts for the engine, etc so going well! Allot has changed in part availability the last years so that is good !
  2. Hi All It has been a while and I have been racing e36's, TA2's V8's hard. But that Datsun bug bit me again, (It helps to have one sitting in your barn the last 11 years!!!!) Over that time there have been periods I have done several things to it, but campaigning the other cars always meant to revivals short lived. However selling after selling the Sprint race car and just having an endurance car it started to itch. And to be fair I first went on racecarsdirect before I figured that was a stupid waste of money and knowledge. So without too much fuzz... She is back.
  3. Rest in peace! always a pleasure catching up with you on my US pelgrimages! So sorry to hear this. My condolences to his family.
  4. I did it in a 280zx once and put a s62 in a e36 (www.facebook.com/rmrmotorsport) there are multiple problems, one of them, the biggest in my book is the large front sump.making any decent engine placemnet problematic. Next is the width (a m62 is nearly 7 inches wider than an ls1) And so the need to fab some decent headers. It also makes for a steering shaft problem. There are work arounds for the oil pan like the Alpina oil pan or a modified X5 pan. And then there is some home grown ingenuity in fabbing your own. Best results are had with a dry sump but that ads to the cost. and s
  5. Nothing wrong with a good v8 powered e36
  6. Yeah well some stuff has happened it became A m5 v8 ... This stuff distracts me from my datsun to much haha!!! Most pictures can be found on www.facebook.com/rmrmotorsport
  7. There is an intact complete works car in sf aswel... With fia head
  8. Well most answers can be found by reading and using search however ill go by them step by step: what chassie (or subframe) strengthing needs to be done? Short answer is none I have over 500HP V8 through a slick top but haven’t got much time on it however plenty with a ~350HP 305 and nothing gave. Best example is Jeffp who has 600+ HP on a t top car. My car has a full cage and I seam welded most parts. But I don’t think you have at all. the s130 platform is a better (not tastewise but from a mechenical standpoint) starting point for high horsepower, mainly do to design upgrades in
  9. Thats why it is in there and well im a sucker for the rumble ....... Anybody have any experiance with set up that they like? I see the mallory units on ebay and read on forums they are fairly hassle free.
  10. So I finally got time away from my BMW e36 GTR race car (s62b50 m5 dry sumped v8 ) as we are waiting for the v8 to return from the engine shop. So finally I decided to pull the 406 and mount the T56! also I want to remake the wiring harness to the front headlights to delete all the stock FI stuff and fusible links. I have gotten more experienced in this the last year due to constant changes in the custom wiring loom of my race cars. So it is time to do this right! This is all to old school and there is allot of stuff unused or routed in a way not pleasant for the SBC as it has ‘hot sid
  11. Andy flagg has a Cadillac lump in his 280z.. that seemed really tight! it is set up as a drag car so it does not need to steer. but lets say i had an inspiring drive around the block in that car.. the torque was simply brutal. So your goal of cruising and lightning up the tires should be easy.. the BB Z I drove in felt like it wanted to lift its nose!!!! so please keep us updated!
  12. Sweeet haha i guess due to most guys here being in California under smog laws. even s130 are rare ... I wonder how it sounds .. the v8 rumble is not something you would expect by the looks of a z31
  13. This is one of those topics... That i simply love..i guess i have a wheel addiction
