  1. Retro-Spec has good quality reviews, they also offer a dash in both composite and carbon fiber.
  2. I'd recommend you have a clear vision of what you want your car to be. I think alot of ppl dream up ideas of what would be "cool" but not about how they'll actually use the car and what they want it of it when it's complete. I've never owned that motor but have been in a beams swapped te27. It has alot of grunt for what it is. And they can make good power NA. The owner said he was at 225hp to the wheels after a tweaking it. He also said it was a finicky motor and when getting it to run correctly he had a few teething issues. You can get that kinda power out of the L28, so going back to Nissan is an option. I think people vastly underestimate the L-series for power, sound, and reliability. If you want to be different, there are NA RB and 2j swaps. If it were me I'd go VQ35 or 37. Tons of aftermarket, cheap, great transmissions, great power and sound or wait for the Datsun Works DOHC head. I honestly think SRs sound like crap. Sorry to rant, but just my 2 cents. Plenty of great options to wedge in there. Car looks clean. Good luck.
  3. The purple one catches my eye or the either white one. Subscribed
  4. That's awesome you ran into that mustang. I've been following his build since he was running the turbo Ford motor on the mustang forum. Awesome car and he seems like an awesome guy.
  5. You've invested so much time/money, and as a supporter of this community, it's the least I can do.
  6. Derek I just put the deposit down on 73 240z with a new rebuilt L28 short block. I'm rearing and ready to go waiting for this. It's come such a long way and I'm glad we were able to come along on this journey with you. Can't wait!
  7. after a little more digging I've read/heard some great things about JSpec Auto in VA. They seem to take some of the most detailed pictures of parts I've seen.
  8. I believe they are the old JDM Tiger, website looks eerily similar. But keep an eye on their contact info. Osaka JDM Motors and JDM Racing Motors are the same company. Also call anyone you're buying parts from. Some of the stuff they have on the website is already sold but they're always getting new stuff so you kinda have to be pro-active to get what you want.
  9. I was saying the trans can hold up to these levels in boosted applications in e30s, so it should be fine here in an n/a scenario. I wouldn't want to boost an engine with this head. From what it should be capable of in a higher compression non-boosted car it will be plenty. You'd have to build the car around the engine like they build A-10 warthogs around its cannon. I can't wait for this to come to fruition, I'm picking up and building a 240z just for this head. I can't wait!
  10. I wish someone would make an adapter for the bmw getrag transmissions several E30's and E36's running 400+ft tq setups with the stock trans, mine soon to be included. And they're plentiful and cheap.
  11. I've seen Aux's thread and it's been pointed out that he didn't do it the most efficient way (swapping the front case for front engine mounts when the motors available to me are side mounted) etc... I'll keep an eye out for future posts in your thread.
  12. How has no one commented on this? This is awesome, my favorite motor going into my favorite chassis. Rock on! I'd like to see your engine mount solution.. might have to ask you to make a second set
  13. I needed a new daily, as i gave my wife my 06 Buick LeCrosse. It's been while since I had a car I could daily and actually enjoy driving. Enter this E30. My brothers are more in tune with the "newer" euro/jdm tuner crowds. My brother had a 240sx until a few months ago, and while it was a fun-ish car to drive i couldn't get over the drifter/Fast N Furious fanboy following. However, I kept seeing these e30s pop up on their pictures at car meets. I had never acutally seen one in decent condition. The next day I jump on CL, I found this one: 5sp manual, minimal rust, a little rough cosmetically, everything worked (minus the sunroof and OD, common E30 issues and cheep fixes) but ran like a champ and the price was wayyyy to good to walk away from. From the first time i drove it i fell in love. It's light, rev happy, the sport seats are comfortable and it already had Bilstein shocks and sport springs. My goal is to get her back up to A- condition cosmetically inside and out. I've got quite a few parts coming to redo the damaged trim and repaint the faded grills, fix the fog lights and vents. I found a set of Style 5 rims I'm cleaning up and alot more. I'm over on R3V but i'll try to keep this updated monthly.
  14. I'm in Topeka, I'd love to come check this thing out. Where abouts are you?
