  1. Whoa, this is cool! Just designed this...
  2. Brilliant, those look amazing!! Quite a project pulling the entire dash out!!
  3. Thanks - any one installed one or the other? I have some 2 1/16 gauges that I could use if they'd fit...but not sure if I have to make some sort of adapter. My guess is that the 60mm would look nicer and be a lot easier to read.
  4. Need a 383 stroker...

  5. I've been reviewing the forum for a discussion on gauge options for the 3 openings in the dash. I see that SpeedHut seems to be a popular option, but mostly for the Speedo / Tach replacement. I'm looking to replace the current (non-working) stock gauges with new ones (oil pressure, oil temp, water temp), and would like to see what others have done, both size and brand. Mainly, is it the 2 1/16" that will fit or the 2 5/8" that is better? Appreciate any info and picts you can share!
  6. My understanding is that the rear kit from MSA is based on a '90-94 Nissan 240sx (S13) rear calipers - that seems to indicate a Porterfield AP272. Are those the calipers you have?
  7. Just picked this up - crate 350, but runs strong. In desperate need of a 383 Not in love with the hood, but it's on there for now. Looking at a brake upgrade as well. Plan is to make this a nice little track car / sleeper.
  8. Anyone? Thought this would be pretty straight-forward! From what I've read, mostly either 350's or 383's. I talked to one builder down in AZ (found him on a post from www.chevyspeed/com), was thinking for my $10k budget, I could get a dart block 420 ci with 600 hp. Tempting as that is, I can't imagine being able to get that kind of HP to even come close to hooking up - especially with 225 tires! So, at some point, extra HP just has no use in a 24xx lb car. What is that optimal torque / hp configuration? Seems that we want engines that will rev quickly (light flywheel?), be very responsive in the throttle, and have a relatively flat torque curve. Not looking for 0-60 times, more 30-100 times (on track). What y'all think??
  9. Howdy All - just came into a nice 1972 240Z that currently has a Chevy 350 in it. Conversion already done, but I'd like to drop a few more HP into it. I have two questions - 1) I'm thinking a 383 with 450-500 hp would be a nice match. Since it is already setup for Chevy, i'll stay that route. What are some of the other options I should consider that are popular? 2) Engine source. There are a TON of engine builders on the internet. I know that many of them use junk Chinese parts and it will probably grenade quickly. Are there any reputable chevy engine builders that folks on the forum have had good luck with? Thanks for the help!!
