  1. I went back to zcarsource's website they have t-tops but.. one side is available while the other is sold out https://zcarsource.com/weatherstrip-seals/weatherstrip-280zx/t-top-weatherstrip contact them maybe they'd have something soon? but they are pricy so hopefully there are other alternatives
  2. i got mine from zcarsource, a bit pricy but i had them installed in august 2015 still holding up fine however it does not include t-top and doors (doors weatherstrip were from a kia sportage) t-top i can't remember what i did
  3. I have an 280zx 83' and remember found a thread saying the kia sportage works, got a pair and its not amazing but it kinda worked lol https://www.kiapartsnow.com/genuine/kia-wthstp-frt-door~0k01858760b.html (i think) and the rest of the weatherstripping was from https://zcarsource.com/weatherstrip-kit-280zx-82-83-coupe-no-t-tops-new
  4. Yeah from the looks of it, I'll probably go the collins route, thanks for being very informative I appreciate it. I couldn't find an ar5 here, but I guess i'll just try the cd009, thank you for your input. I don't think i'd ever go twin plate tbh, knowing I wont even go over 450hp, but I did find the SPEC clutch you were talking about, they make it for the Mavrick kit. Thank you. rb25 tranny costs the same as an r154 here.. and well cd009 seems more money efficient for me, thank you.
  5. Oh cool, didn't know another company made an adapter kit, thanks for mentioning that, I'll compare both Maverick and Collins and later on see wether I'm more comfortable with machining the housing or not. Thanks for clearing things up, I really didn't know about the shifter linkage relocation, not sure if I should actually order that, since you're talking about an S30 and mines an S130, I remember both cars have different dimensions. I'm kind of concerned about the drive shaft though, but hopefully i'd find a shop that would make a custom one, the nismo short shifter loo
  6. I thought of that, but several mechanics said they wont do that, and I don't really have the time, tools or even the experience to do it. The shop that fit my engine and tranny told me its best I get another r154 but the price has gone severely up not to mention I couldn't find any r154's, hence why I thought of going with a cd009.
  7. Hey hybridz, hopefully this is the right place to post it. I spent quiet a while(2 months and going) looking for an r154 after mine broke, but no luck, so I read people started doing the cd009 swap, and I have searched online for this topic but I couldn't understand much it, it wasn't as clear as I thought it would be. I know Collins sell an adapter kit, but I also read that it needs to be cut to fit, but do I need more than just an adapter? I really want something as close as a bolt on as an r154 and as for power I'm willing to hit the 500-550whp this winter, any help would
  8. Haha yeah Bruce was one of the 280zx's that I saw. I'll look at that facebook group and probably ratsun. Thanks again
  9. Hello Hybrid Z I own an 83' 280zx with a 2jz vvti, its going through a restoration now, I have most parts for the restoration, just missing on suspensions and wheels and it would be done. I was going to go with the techno toy tuning front coil kit and s13 for the rear, but a friend of mine, told me about accuair, and I kinda kept thinking about them, they looked cool and the idea grew on me. I contacted accuair and they said they don't have a kit for a 280zx just 300zx (90's) and s14. I saw two people with 280zx accuairs, but unfortunately they didn't reply to me when I asked
  10. Hey there, If anyone has all the emblems as well as the hub caps for the 1983 280zx N/A(T-Top), preferably chrome and not the gold color in pretty good condition, I would like to buy them. Payment will be through paypal, I have an address in the states. Thanks.
  11. it doesnt matter what engine i have, so i should look for the ohms rating of the original 280zx?
  12. Hey guys, I've been searching the forums and the internet for a while now, but I didn't find the information I need. I'm gonna order a new set of autometer gauges, but I have one question in the site theyre asking how many ohms it is, and it got me confused. The only thing I upgraded for the fuel is a bosch fuel pump but thats it everything is stock, the old gauge is just dead. Thank you
  13. I'm using the R154 5 speed manual transmission. I'm not familiar with the english terms, but if shifter arm means how I got the gear stick in the stock hole of the 280zx, It didnt fit I had to trim it a bit to make it fit. this is an old pic as well of the interior I hope its clear x.x its the only one I got
  14. I have a 280zx 83' and I saw these kits but they were just out of my budget, fortunately I found a workshop who was familiar with z's and 2jz engines and custom fabbed the mounts. He charged me about $100, I'm not from the states so i dont know how much a shop would charge you there. Here's a pic of the engine if you're interested. but thats an old pic, im upgrading the turbo and a bunch of stuff atm but just to give you a rough idea even custom fabbed mounts work well
  15. Well english isn't my first language , yeah I might've mixed them up, but if it is working fine for now I'll keep it like that, till I can get around it and check the charcoal canister. Thanks
