  1. A little update: Mounted the Laine family sbf cradle kit which fit perfectly with no problems whatsoever. Very good design, adjustability, and quality is outstanding. All parts needed are included and in my opinion it was completely worth it. After dropping the motor in once for a trial fit I took it back out and am planning on giving it a good wash and doing a few preventative maintenance things to it such as the oil pan gasket and rear main seal. A fresh new clutch and flywheel went into it as well! Comin along comin along...possibly the slowest swap ever witnessed

    This is my 1977 280z that I'm in the process of dropping a 5.0 in. Check out my profile to follow my post, which I will be uploading in as well.

  5. Last night, I finished installing the clutch master cylinder (Wilwood part #260-6765 7/8"bore). I had to swap out the push rod to the original Z one, which was relatively easy. The worst part was laying upside down in the cab. I also drilled the hole for the mustang wiring harness and fitted everything for that. For the visual people-

    Wilwood part #260-6765 7/8"bore In order to use this, it's best to swap the rod from the original Z master cylinder so the length and thread will be correct for the clutch pedal attachment
  8. Test fit of the fuel tank from the 95 Im going to bend the straps against the tank and use garage door insulation for the tank strap. For those wondering, the tanks are nearly identical in shape. The only problem I ran into is having to extend one of the tank straps. On the attached side by side comparison, the mustang tank is on the top and Z tank is on bottom. Pretty close if you ask me!

    Pretty close, a little modification needed for the straps.
  10. Since I've been pretty busy with school, I haven't had much opportunity to work on the Z. I'm focused on getting everything wired up correctly before I drop the motor in so it'll be easy to plug and play. Last thing I did was the fusible link mod since half of them were missing and I had a few stereo installation parts laying around. I also did the rear bumper delete and fitted the fuel tank from the 95 cobra. WOW- I cannot believe how close it is. All it needed was a longer bolt for one tank strap and a filler neck adapter. Here's the fusible link mod pic: lots of thanks to

    I like to be a little different, and It just so happened I had some extra bedliner in my garage. Trimmed the wiring harness a little (a little too much- more on that later)

    Can you believe that thing weighs 50 lb less than the straight 6?

    Ok it might technically be a GTS but it had a Cobra motor in it SVO intake, 24lb injectors, Proflow MAF, Moates tuner, B303 cam, MAC exhaust, etc etc
