  1. Hi Derek. It`s been a while (time wise) that we've seen some form of an update in production. I'd be curious to see a breakdown of all the heads you`ve made and what happened to them. for example headd 001- - prototype, scrapped headd 002, prototype, in my car head 003, vvt prototype, scrapped. head 004 - client was dynoed on a 3.2 to xxx hp.. head...... *****note that all these are made up!!!! something like that. maybe including the future plans, like how many heads have been ordered and are "in production".
  2. hey! I miss your updates... can't wait to see what is next on the cars.. did you end up posting some new work here on hybridZ for your other cars? s
  3. hey! so.. what's the news. I know it's been a while, but did you manage to get the engine rebuilt? how is she doing now?
  4. are you looking for something new or used? same level of power or more? got a budget in mind? I have an aftermarket T3/T04E on mine, didn`t pick it it came modified. wikipedia says (it`s true if I can remember) that "The turbocharged 280ZX used a single Garrett AiResearch TB03 turbocharger with an internal wastegate"... this post has a few options..
  5. Hey jdm junkie. I'm franciphone (from quebec). If you want, give me the person's email, i'll write to them and figure out the history. Send me a private message and we'll figure out the details. Sebastien
  6. @B50MX hey! thanks for sharing! seems like a mighty nice build, fun to drive too! simple, but to the point, and it works, which is more than my car can say. seems like you have a nice, evenly balanced setup.. 👍
  7. smoothz nice! I`ve really not ridden mine since I changed my shocks and I had problems with the steering, which i`m still working on (not often),. but whatever runs around the block I did, I also say a night and day change...
  8. hi tokuzumi. I live in quebec, canada, where we normally have a lot of rust., although it seems my car never saw much moisture.. I had no issues what so ever, so I wouldn`t worry too to much. The good thing about this set up is you can remove the shock and top plate by removing the 3 nuts that are on the shock tower.. this way, you have better access to the central nut, if I remember. Worst come to worse, if you're changing the shocks themselves (after 41 years, i`m guessing yes) and the top nut won't budge, you can always put a pair of vice grips on the shaft and use an i
  9. what manual or instruction set did you use to hook everything up? was there any mention of that problem? I seem to recall some forum or another talking about this type of issue, but that was a few years ago; I don't remember where... or how much details there was.. and when you mention the factory wiring, I imagine you mean all those wires that are connected to the cold that lead back to the tach (I think that's how it's set up, I didn't do the MS installation on my car so I'm not sure how it works). I know my car still has some of the old wiring attached to some of t
  10. hahaha. yeah, my wife agreed once or twice, but the second I didn`t drive like an old man going to sunday church, she was not happy. I guess we`re (read she) is not young and dumb anynmore and should act accordingly. nice control arms!!! not too epensive, I suppose... although they are such a simple part, I think i'd make my own. especially with the model you shown, that split shaft in which you insert the plate to weld (the transition between shaft and plate) is a very good idea on how to make certain i't`s very solidly joined... good inspiration...
  11. hey! I don't know about the price, but have you calculated the volume/size you need? I have a similar sized intercooler (both entry and exit on the driver side though). it came with the car, don't know if it's a good one or what, but I always wondered if it's not a little big... Too big of an intercooler would introduce a little bit more turbo lag (well it's not turbo lag, but the effect is the same)... unfortunately, that's about as much as I know. I can't help with calculating what is needed. hopefully someone who's installed a few intercoolers can chime in..
  12. hey S1300TTop. look at that, you posted on both my topics.. thanks! I debated buying a kit too, but I think changing the bushings on mine is going to be more an attrition battle than winning the war all at once. my missus has a love-hate relationship to my car... one that has no love in it, so I have to stretch out the purchases.. let me know how the kit does for you. WHATEVER YOU DO though, don't replace both sides of the tension rod bushings with poly bushings. you can find it in a lot of posts, both side poly bushing ends up being too st
  13. got a link for the Vogtlands? are you getting them and putting them on the car in secret, and only posting the photos when you get permission? seb
  14. hey New Zed. thanks for this. the link you sent in your second post is perfect. not only does it confirm that the parts at Rock auto are what I'm looking for, but it give some info on installing it.... Captain Obvious actually gives out a part number, which is the same part number that Rock Auto gives for those "Strut Rod Bushing". I've looked at photos that are posted and they are DEFINITELY what is needed for the tension rods. Thanks New Zed. impressive memory, by the way. Also. the AC delco kit no 45G25036 has pictures of just the rubb
