  1. Willing to sell just the dizzy by itself?
  2. UPDATE 08/01/2018 I have been through a few different machine shops trying to get these things made again, I have been out of them for a few months as my old machine shop went out of business. Currently in development with a new one, hoping to have something maybe by the end of the month. I do have some further research. It appears as stated above that the RB flywheel/350z clutch clears the T5 transmission without having to clearance the inside of the bellhousing. As far as non T5 transmissions go, I have found a solution. The RB26 is a 250mm surface area, and holds just as much power as the 350z clutch, and DOES NOT require bell housing clearancing to fit. I have verified this on my personal Z car. Another minor issue I have come across, I was told by a reputable source that the RB flywheel has an additional 1mm offset towards the front of the transmission compared to the L flywheel. I have not been able to verify this with any precise measuring equipment, HOWEVER, the gear mesh pattern on the ring gear shows the starter to be running about 1mm too shallow, which could possibly contribute to pre-mature ring gear wear. I just recently finished my engine build, and took the engine/transmission shield and lapped off the area where the starter mounts. It is approximately 1mm thick. I would advise any future purchasers of the spacer make this same modification to allow for better starter ring gear engagement. Anyways, here are some pics. I came across a chrome-moly 10lb RB flywheel, and coupled it with a Stage 4 Clutch for grins. We'll see how it does when trying to hold together E85 and big turbo Photos generously provided by Godzilla Raceworks
  3. https://www.godzillaraceworks.com/shop/13lb-rb26-flywheel-kit-for-l-series-engines We run these on all of our build cars with the XTD Stage 3 clutch for the 350z. It requires some minor bell housing clearancing to clear the clutch cover. But you can run the 240mm 280zx turbo clutch with this flywheel, and it's fractions cheaper than the Fidanza
  4. I’ve got a valve cover

      I have a valve cover for sale Zguy240@gmail.com, 818 298-2549.

  5. BUMP! Just got a new run of spacers in, 3 have been sold, have 7 remaining before submitting the next order. $40 shipped anywhere in the continental US. Will also ship international for additional cost.
  6. It will be fine. i actually have a write up for the ZX, i also replied to your e-mail. http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/122445-240sx-5-speed-swap-in-280zx/?hl=%2B240sx+%2Bspeed+%2B280zx I will have to update the pictures for this thread
  7. Looking to get some information from others who have done the GM waste spark setup. I'm trying to figured out if I can use the stock 280zx CAS wheel to control GM waste spark, the kind off the 3400s with 1 coil for 2 cylinders, so I will be adding extra BIP373s for spark B and spark C. Can i use the 280zx CAS wheel, or do I need either a Z31 CAS wheel or the DIYautotune wheel? Trying to find the simplest solution possible. I'm running MS2e 3.2.3 firmware, only have 3 wires from the stock CAS going to the MS, it appears if I did the DIYautotune wheel i would have to run the 4th wire back to the MS unit. Any insight would be greatly appreciated
  8. Looking for a used set of turbo cv shafts, shipped to 76017 e-mail me @ sk84life1122@sbcglobal.net, thanks
  9. Nice! My old setup was dished pistons with a N42 head, I couldn't get more than 9 degrees timing at full boost (18psi), so once i got up to 26 degrees on this p90 i started to get nervous lol, no knock from what I can hear, motor is still together haha. I'm gonna push the boost to 25psi with water/meth and see how much more timing I can get, probably at that point a dyno will benefit hugely, only so much you can do on a street tune.
  10. Just out of curiosity, how much timing advance are you running? I'm at 26 full advance, 18psi boost, ported, polised, deshrouded p90 with dished pistons.
  11. Yea there is enough information within this thread for anyone toying the idea, anyone halfway competent with a drill and taps should be able to tackle this fairly easily. I might talk my buddy into doing this mod on his 240z turbo, if he does, i'll do a timing map before and after and see if it made any significant threshold increase.
  12. For what it's worth, If anyone is uncomfortable drilling into their own head without proper measurements, and would like something as bolt in as possible, I have a spare junk cylinder head I can use to mock up and sort of produce these in small numbers if there is any interest. I could make a drilling template to tape to the head, provide a drilled and tapped rail and fittings, all you would have to do is drill the holes in the head, tap them, and put everything together.
  13. Good point. I'm just happy to have this money pit running after 3 months down lol. I will more than likely make such a revision down the line
  14. read through the first few pages of this thread and see if your application applies. I do alot of highway running with mine, hard highway running, it's not my daily, so when it's being used, its being abused. I saw it as a necessary modification, I also plan on using water/meth, running more boost and more timing, i figured for the cost factor it was a cheap investment. Are you going to be running carbs or megasquirt? You could see how much timing you can give it before you get spark knock, then do this mod, and see if it increases your threshold. I would imagine it would.
