    1977 Turbo LQ4 280z Build

    Wow, it has been a long time. Over the past almost 3 years. A little has been done to the car since the last update. Ive moved homes and took on 2 kids. The turbo hotside has been fabbed up. I decided to go with a ford 8.8 IRS 31 spline from a ford explorer. I used the t3 backing plates and rear coilovers that came from their q45 doff conversipn so i could run z32TT hubs. Corbeau A4 seats were mounted. The wiring harness was depinned. A fuel cell was put in. I just recently bought fuel line. Pretty much at this point is a domino effect. I need front coilovers and the front 5 lug conversion, brakes all around, wheels and tires (likely just do steelies to be able to drive it around for the time being), exhaust, axles and driveshaft, charge pipes, finish the cooling system, charge piping, and a few odds and ins just to make ot driveable. Still trying to figure out if some flex pipe should be done on the hot side and how to go about supporting the turbo to keep some strain off the pipes.
  2. Hey everybody, i know there are loads of information on these brakes on the s30 chassis, but where can i get the spacer for 5 lug? Ive searched the forum and I can only seem to find the 4 lug spacer. Looking to put s12w calipers on my datsun, but im 5 lug.

    Where did you get your ac mount and what compressor did you go with? Sorry if I missed it earlier

    Ford 8.8 IRS Conversion

    If you don't mind me asking, what exactly did you do to center the wheel?
  6. You won't get 450rwhp out of a streetable 5.3 NA, even if you go 11:1 compression ratio. Lq4 can get you there, but the if you're going NA, you'll need to bump up compression. if you decide to go NA, then decide to go forced induction, then you'll want to drop compression ratio a little bit. To save you money in the long run, if you think you're going to go forced induction, chances are you will eventually. Building a mean NA engine will eventually cost around the same price as a FI engine. I say get the lq4, build it for boost. Do it right the first time and save money

    Pegasus Roll Bar

    Yeah, I'm sticking with a 4 point roll bar as I don't like side bars and it is a street car

    The inside will be bare for a long time as it will get a roll bar in so on, but yeah, I plan on it

    Yeah, I'm so thankful for that!
  10. I'm glad this post showed up. I'm thinking about getting these. Ordering 1, does it include both sides of the front suspension or do I have to order two? Arizona sells the sides separately, not sure how ttt packages their products
  11. Has anybody tried out the Pegasus racing roll bar? They claim they make them for the s30 cars and the design of this one is more appealing that other roll bars (more importantly it looks functional). If you have, how was the fitment? https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productselection.asp?Product=2403
