  1. Hello- I saw your post on your injectors that you are using in your Turbo motor and wanted to add some info. The majority of injectors that guys are using on this site for their modified turbo cars are for higher flow 4 valve heads. This would mean that most of these injectors are using orifice plates for a spray pattern, and not the older pintle valve style of injectors that came in the Turbo and non-turbo Z engines. Although these injectors can work in the 2 valve Z engine, they are a very poor choice for the Z motor. The reason for this is that the spray pattern will end up spr
  2. Great job on the paint! I have basically the same set up as you except for the hood and different wheels. I did the shaved back end as well. Scott
  3. I lived in Germany for 5 years, in Frankfurt, and I had 2 cars brought over from the states during that period, and converted them to German plates and registration. When you pick up the car from customs, you might have to pay them duty, check that out in advance. Since I was working for Lufthansa, I had a reduced rate in which to transport the cars, otherwise by ship is the cheaper route. If your in the military, you fall under a different set of rules for plates and registration, which basically by-passes the TUV. The TUV is the german equivalent of the DOT. Here is a link in english:
  4. Glad you figured it out. How does it run now that you can take it wide open when you drive it? I had triple Mikuni's on my 3.1L, and it was pure music. My 5.0 that is in there now has a lot more power and has its a great sound, but the I6 with the triples sounded a lot better fo sho.
  5. What size are the chokes in the carbs? Maybe you already verified that they are in there but if they are not that might be your problem.
  6. If it were me I would use the replacement rails, even if the originals are perfect. Aren't the new rails a thicker gauge metal? Plus the new ones are probably a better quality steel than the originals as well.
  7. They are aerocatch latches. Really trick- http://www.deftracing.com/aerocatch_hood_pins/index.htm
  8. I started with Boeing here in Charleston a year ago, really like it, great company to work for. I was in Everett last Aug/Sept doing some training for about a week, actually had sunshine and mild temps the whole week. Washington is a beautiful state.
  9. By the way Challanger, do you work at Boeing in Everett?
  10. Its been over a year since I played with the megasquirt on my car, so bear with me. I started putting in a V8 awhile back and sold my 3.1L and megasquirt computer. Although I did put alot of reading and effort into setting my system up. My car was not turbocharged, but had a with a big cam in it which is why I went with the megasquirt. I looked at your megalog but could not tell much from it to be honest. I used Tuner Studio as well, and had the best results tuning while driving it and my girlfriend making small corrections to the fuel table. That said, I found its important to put in
  11. Are you sure its ignition related? Could you be running a little lean? What is your O2 sensor reading when your rev it up or drive it? Have you tried playing with your MAP settings?
  12. I used this harness, much easier than trying to piece together a harness out of the mustang and put it in the Z. Also I use Brian Laines Tach Match with it. FWIW, I would use a stock block, they are really strong unless your going to use turbos or a blower. http://www.rjminjectiontech.com/
  13. Located in the area around the rear hatch lock on the body. Open the hatch, remove the inner panel that runs the width of the rear area around the tailights, and look for the black wire that is screwed to the body.
  14. Awesome job Cleve, fits in there nicely. I guess you won't have any problems with the rear end since it started life as an M5. I couldn't imagine driving a car with that much power, I wouldn't have a license for long that's for sure!
  15. Hey- Thought for your hydraulic brake progressively locking. Do you have any of the hydraulic lines running close to the exhaust? If it is happening after about 5 miles or so, maybe heat from one of the exhaust pipes is causing the fluid to expand enough to do this.
