  1. Bumping a seriously old thread here, but I wanted to see if anyone knows if Spinwerks are still available anywhere? I'd love to get my grubby little hands on a set of 16x8 wheels! Why didn't I buy these last year?!?!
  2. Sorry that was auto correct. The wheels are called Rota Wired. I just realized they don't come in 16" tho
  3. What kind of suspension and tire size are you running? That is a great fit!
  4. For those of you running 16x8 what tires sizes are you running and what suspension? I'm looking for 16x8 all around with maybe 225/50/16 tires. I will run eibach progressives with tokico blues. I wanna know if I need to roll my fenders or trim back the stock perch to prevent rubbing. Thanks for your help. Also if anyone has pictures of rota wires or rota flush wheels please share them. Would love to see them mounted on a 240
  5. Hey everyone, I own a 1971 240z with a vg30e motor swap that was done by a previous owner. I'm looking for more power and have read up quite a bit on the nA to turbo conversions. I have found a 1985 300zx turbo donor car and I'd like to do the conversion. I'm no mechanic so i do need help. Does anyone have any shop or mechanic recommendations for this type of work?
  6. Thanks for your replies, I have used the search function as well as looked through the majority of both of those threads. I have still yet to see a thread specific to suspension. Most of the images only state wheel size and offset. That's why I posted this.
  7. I saw those, are they really the same? They look completely different to me. Am I losing it?
  8. hey everyone, in starting this thread to hopefully get a good visual representation of various lowering spring and strut combinations. I'm personally looking for a good handling suspension without the super stiff uncomfortable ride. I live in a big city so pot holes rule the streets around here. I'm looking specifically for pictures of eibach progressive and tokico blues on a 240z, but I'm open to seeing other combinations. Please list what springs and shocks you are using and what wheels and tire sizes as well. Hopefully this will serve as a great aid for all Z own
  9. This is one of the cleanest Z's I've ever seen. Does anyone know where I can find this airdam? The article i read on this car says its a 280z with a carbon fiber BRE front airdam but I've looked on the net and can't find anything that looks like it. If i do find it will it fit on a 240z? Thanks in advance!
  10. Hey everyone! So I'm not the most mechanically inclined, so please bare with me. I have 1971 240z with a vg30e motor swap done by a previous owner. I want more power out of it and I got a quote to have rebello build it to @300hp. It's not cheap, but it seems like it would be something i really like. I was also thinking of bolting on turbo parts from the vg30et but then I run into compression issues etc. I recently found a 1988 300zx turbo that I can buy and swap the entire motor, tranny, and rear end. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but that car comes with a r200 clsd rea
  11. Thanks for your reply. I've read you can bolt on the turbo parts and run low amounts of boost with the higher compression without too much worry. Do you have a recommendation on where to source these parts and around what they should cost?
  12. Hey everyone, looking for some advice here about my beloved 240 that I've had for over a year now. A little info, the 1971 240z was purchased with a vg30e and 5 speed manual. When I bought it, I didn't know a ton about the motor, but it looked very clean and has proven to be incredibly reliable. I drive the car a few times a week on the street. This car probably won't see much track time. I'm now looking at my options for a little more power. I recently considered getting a v8 240 but after test driving one that was way more power than I'll need (at least i think so) Anyways, I've done s
  13. Sound advice guys. I actually picked up a nice pair of Porsche OEM seats that I'm going to try and install. The tricky part for me is going to be the wiring.
  14. For anyone looking to do this I recommend removing your glove box as well as your heater console. This will give you 2 points of access. Each gauge then disconnects via one bolt each. With some finesse you have to then either disconnect the wires so you can work on each gauge or you can do it the hard way like I did and work on it still attached. You have to remove the light socket and like someone mentioned in this thread, the light won't work again until it is plugged back into the gauge. For the LEDs I chose, they were too tall to simply plug back in, so I had to use a grinder on m
  15. I ended up just dremeling out the green caps while the gauges were still attached. Made it hard on myself but I got it done. Thank you all for your help. You guys are great! Now to tackle my power seat install.......
