  1. Prayers for your safe return and thank you for your service! I will follow your build from up here in the great white north.....ok, just North Carolina....
  2. Old Z's are notorious for getting light in the front end at speed. Too much air gets up under the hood at speed. The grill opening is way to big with no where for the wind to go. If frame rail strength worries you about the differences between the 240 and the 280 just add big dog fame rails. That is the biggest difference that I have noticed between all my Z's. As to the wind under the hood I have seen it mentioned a number of times in the forums. Do you have a front spoiler on your car now?
  3. Long shot for you. You mentioned it was out of a ZX? I had a ZX that had the same random symptoms and I traced it to the oil pressure sensor that was on the way out. The ZX added a fail safe to shut down the injectors in case of no oil pressure to save the engine. The stock oil pressure sensor fail fairy often. After checking ALL grounds after that I would try swapping the ignition sensor from the side of the dizzy and see what you get since you have access to a running match car. Good luck!
  4. I just added a third Z to the driveway... 1983 ZX automatic with T-tops. I have to figure out a fuel injection issue and then I will post some pics.
  5. Thank you for posting this. I am looking forward to the rest.
  6. Are you going to run AC? I need to get accessories figured out as well for my 260Z swap. I have read so many threads now that it is all a jumble in my head.
  7. Good looking car to start with.
  8. I have a complete set rebuilt about 2 years ago.
  9. I am thinking about going to see what Hoke has going on in person. I am way behind on my Z project and need to at least decide on mounts so I can start stripping it down and collecting parts.
  10. Full auto just get the thin 240 style bumpers from Black Dragon and run those. I am actually thinking about it as well.
  11. MrPhoto I really need to get down and check out your project. I would be very curious to see if the headers fit.
  12. I would love to take a look. Just let me know when you get it home.
  13. You scored an amazing buy. If you run across another send me a message!
  14. My Armada blew it's engine after only 256k miles so my Z project just took a 4-6 week delay..... It is always something, but hey I always wanted to play with getting more flow from the Nissan heads.... The more I dig the more I am thinking 5.3 L33 with a 60.... keep it simple and affordable and just get it done.
