  1. Noting that this thread is over a year old, do any of you know a dealer, distributor, reputable Z fanatic in the Chicago area? Or one who ships to the Chicago area. I live in the suburbs of Chicago (Plainfield to be exact) and have had quite a bit of trouble finding one. My biggest worry is I'm gonna end up spending way too much on a hood for it to be shipped cross country and someone is gonna run off with my money via a paypal scam. Thanks for the help! If this is considered thread jacking or isn't allowed feel free to delete just give me a heads up
  2. sorry to kinda thread jack but I'm swapping an LS2 out of a trailblazer into my '74 260z what kind of power is your motor making I thought NV3500s were only rated for like 325 ft/lb max and the 6.0 puts out 350 ft/lb (or so I've been told) I would honestly rather run the nv3500 but I'm worried about it being destroyed after a week of driving
  3. Hey Phantom any chance you have some pictures of the install? I would love to see how he ran that. I was planning to do mine the same way Thanks!
  4. Is this on stock suspension? Any rubbing or clearance issues? I'm trying to run 16x8s(0offset) on my 260z but didn't think I could fit 245s
  5. I think you're spot on about that. It's the having the money part that would be nice. Maybe in the future I can change it over the prices on some of those kits were ehhh….frightening to say the least but thank you for the suggestion. I'll keep those kits in my wish list (:
  6. Wow. I love this forum. You guys are all incredibly helpful. I'm glad to know I can use the same mounting method and the majority of the LF guide. That was the majority of my worrying. Since I'm doing this on an extremely tight budget (of course). My second biggest concern is the clearance issue. I don't wanna lose that aggressive hood hump. It's one of my favorite body lines. I keep hearing about lowering the motor further into the bay. So I'm gonna look into that as well. Would it be easier to achieve clearance with an EFI setup? If so which route should I go?
  7. This has probably been touched upon in another post but I have been searching for hours and can't find anything. I just picked up a donor fox body with a 5.8L 351W in it mated to a WC T5. I originally wanted to do just a 5.0 out of a fox but the price was too good to pass up on this car. Has anyone used the Laine Family Write up to do this swap? Does the engine cradle work for it as well as the mounting positions? :bang head: Sorry if this is asking a lot my fabrication skill and tool selection is not exactly what I would like it to be for this project so any help would be greatly appreciated I imagine the driveshaft length should be about the same correct me if I'm wrong but yeah even if you guys just link a thread that has the info I'm just a helpless newbie so I'd be very greatful P.S. I plan on boosting this 351w eventually just to change it up a bit even more for the sbf Z-world
  8. I've been looking around quite a bit and was wondering if the Laine cradle and build would work for a 351w? I mean the motors are essentially the same layout correct? just a bigger displacement?
  9. Hey I just picked up a 351/WorldClass T5 combo for my 260z how did you mount the motor in the bay? did you go the SBF truck mount route? Or did you custom fab the mounts. EIther way very nice build and I can't wait to see more of it
