  1. Ok that's like exactly what I'm looking for! Thanks amigo! I'm going to spend more on this than anything else I've bought so far it seems ha.
  2. That's great info, that points me in the right direction! So if/when you get the AIM PDM are you just taking out the racecapture? Maybe I'm just not seeing it but it seems like all of AIM's displays are also dataloggers aren't they?
  3. I am very interested in seeing how this pans out. For some reason i can't seem to find any threads that have the swap 100% done (though I can see that they are out there as people reference them). I'll grab some popcorn and watch you finish it in this build!
  4. So I'm active on the 240z subreddit and a fellow enthusiast on there was giving away these sweet original brochures from Sweden or whatever. I messaged him and he sent them over, what a great guy! These were pretty cool to get. I plan on framing them and hanging them in the garage.
  5. Very interesting. Does the subframe swap just give your rear suspension better geometry overall? Just curious why people swap it out if they're not doing the AWD or something.
  6. Dang what a great find!! That's awesome man! Your thread has so many posts about documents it's like a mini history lesson. Pretty cool!
  7. Dang this is looking good! Is that an R32 subframe? How hard is it to fit in? Also, you're not doing AWD are you? Just rear?
  8. Man I can't believe I've never seen this thread! So stoked to find it while it's nearing completion! It's looking awesome so far!
  9. @Boben Good suggestion! I'm sure I'll apply something like that to it to make sure I don't suddenly lose all my oil! And this is the exact one I bought: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Intercooler-25X12X3-2-5-Inlet-Outlet-Toyota-Acura-BWM-Audi-Honda-Mazda/161332406851?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 It's now $1100 apparently which is crazy because I paid $78 bucks for it ha. I was able to use the 90 degree rubber and it fit perfectly! Like a glove, no cutting needed! Any bigger would definitely require cutting I bet. The openings are 2.5" FWIW.
  10. Hey Ben, what are your thoughts about your digi dash setup? Do you like it? Do you wish you did it differently or are you happy with it? Also, if your engine throws codes, it doesn't show up does it?
  11. Note: One problem I had with the low pressure pump is they no longer make it and so I couldn't get a replacement for the little weird bolt it had. These were stripped and the threads were so small that it didn't instill confidence. So instead I made my own substitutes with some threaded rod of the same diameter as the smooth piece that fits in the rubber grommet and a few nuts placed around. Worked perfect! I do have reservations about it cutting through the rubber but I figure it won't cut completely through, only as deep as the threads.
  12. So the last I updated about the fuel I was trying to make the stock tank work. After fiddling around with that for a bit I decided I'd rather just get a cheap fuel cell and run with that! So here's the cheap eBay beaut in all her glory! You can see this is the setup of it all for the most part. I laid it out to get a clear picture of things. I got tired of trying to fit it in the wheel well so instead I cut that off! I was careful not to cut into the metal of the actual floor but instead only cut the wheel well material. I want to use the flange for a cover or something. Next I cut
  13. Yeah the hope is really soon. I still have some updating to do but I'm very close to getting it started. I need a little bit of cash to get a few tidbits to finish it off though!
  14. So after getting the mounts figured out, I then decided to focus on getting the engine put together. I wanted to see what I'm missing, get everything built out, wiring figured out and hopefully do a first startup! So, I pulled out the boxes and laid out all the pieces ha. This went together pretty quickly as it's all bolt on stuff. First, the intake! Then I put the starter and turbo in. It was at this point I remembered I had an oil return line that was directly under my engine mount. Originally the mounts were much less angles downwards which made it possible to put the hose on
  15. Oh awesome restoration by the way! I love watching people that know what they're doing. I would've done mine really nice if I knew how but as I'm using this as a big ole learning experience I went straight race car!
  16. Curious where you got your rear quarter panels from? And how much did they run you?
  17. Man this makes me want my own powder coating setup! One day. I just want to coat a bunch of the tiny details.
  18. Man the acceleration at :36 is impressive! I can't wait to hit some autocross up and get familiar with my car, makes me stoked!
  19. Those rock guard covers are cool, I've always wondered about that area and didn't realize there was a product for that!
  20. Man that is a project! With the skills you seem to have I'm going to keep an eye on this and watch the updates happen.
  21. @NewZed True that. THere used to be a whole lot more activity here even just like 3 years ago. Now it's a ghost town which is sad. I've always liked the community here. Sorry to hijack ha. You truly are a rare breed these days Michael. Hope to see more on your car soon!
  22. This is coming along nicely, keep up the solid work! I love the look of a freshly blasted car ha.
  23. I haven't seen one myself but I haven't focused as much on restoration as much as racecaration ha.
  24. Also, I forgot to post this here but I'm also going to be posting videos covering the updates. Here's the first one just introducing it. I will actually stick with it this go around ha. I settled on naming it "The Shogun" because I felt it was fitting!
