    Turbo race car, high or low compression ratio?

    Haven't driven my car much in the past few years, more of a garage queen at the moment, but when I hydrolocked my turbo block I swapped an NA into it. I've been running it on 16 lbs of boost out of a Holset HY35 w/ a sequential MS3 setup. Haven't dynod it but based on peak fuel consumption I think it's making about 360whp. No major problems in a few thousand miles since the swap.

    ISO L28ET Stock Injectors

    Did you get a set? I found mine last weekend when organizing my garage.

    Pull engine with tranny?

    I pulled/put together my l28et w/ t5 attached a couple of years ago into my 83. Just took a lot of tilting and wiggling. It would have been a lot more difficult doing it solo without a crank leveler on my hoist.

    l28et knock sensor

    Nope, though I was just thinking about this earlier this morning. The car now has a turbo'd NA motor, the MS3 install is still working great. My turbo motor was a victim of hydrolock :| Since swapping out to the NA and getting everything running and re-tuned in late 2014 I haven't had a lot of free time to tinker with it. I think I'll be picking it back up over the winter though and getting a knock sensor working will be one of my goals.

    Do most aftermarket tachs work off megasquirt

    I used the 'toyota' style DIY tach adapter to get the stock ZX tach working with my MS3. There's a diagram for the wiring somewhere on the MS forums. About $5 in parts and some soldering.

    RIP John Coffey (johnc)

    Yeah, he was the Dr. Jekyll to Tony D's Mr. Hyde. I learned a lot by paying attention to his posts. RIP
  7. I think this is close to what I did. The diagram I followed was for a toyota I believe (and was labeled as such) but it worked mostly fine with the stock tach (showed about 300rpm higher than what it really was at low rpm, seemed pretty accurate 2000+).

    3D printed intake manifold idea

    I think 3d printing is huge for people wanting to maintain classic cars, as you can fabricate a lot of miscellaneous parts that may no longer be available or easily obtainable on the open market. I don't know about replicating engine components. What is the thermal tolerance of the printed piece? What is a safe thermal range for it to be in over time (IE - maybe it can withstand 1,000 degrees briefly, but can it withstand 500 degrees over a prolonged period of time without gradually breaking down?). If there is a way to make a piece that is very durable and resistant to heat (not to mention oil, gas, coolant etc.) I think a 3d printed manifold would be a great idea.

    Rare 280zx 130MPH speedometer

    Is it blue or black? I can't tell from the pic.

    Tach for use with Megasquirt output

    The Toyota relay DIY adapter works fine with the stock 280 tach if you want to go that route.

    A/C Compressor (not locked up), from an 83' ZX

    Not trying to lowball but I'm not really sure what the stuff is worth. I'd give you $50 for the compressor.
