  1. trans is still available, didn't need the shift fork nor throwout bearing so it comes with both, no speedo cable though. must go!
  2. Looking for a pantera style hatch for my 280z. Thanks!
  3. Yes I am pretty sure I am missing shims. Do you have a picture for reference? Thank you!
  4. I completely disassembled my turbo dizzy to clean and paint it. However, now I am not 100% sure how to put everything back together correctly. After putting it together there is quite a bit of play in the input shaft so the trigger disc can touch the sensor. FSM didn't help Thank you!
  5. just pulled my trans, 5speed out of a '83 ZX N/A trans is in great shape, works flawlessly, shifts smoothly comes with short throw shifter. without speedo cable, throw out bearing and shift fork. (need that for the other trans) $450,- (local pickup in Costa Mesa)
  6. Afraid my 5speed won't hold up to the turbo upgrade. Due to shipping costs, preferably one in the LA area. Thank you!
  7. I tried the search, but it wouldn't let me search <4 characters. I read mixed reviews on the XTD clutches, but none ran it on the Z. Anyone running the Stage 4? Would love to hear your opinion, as the EXEDY stage 2 is 4-5x as much. engine: built L28et, ~350-400hp This is the clutch I am talking about: http://www.ebay.com/itm/201808445862?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT vs https://www.stillen.com/performance/transmission-parts/exedy-nissan-200sx-240sx-280z-280zx-620-720-810-maxima-stage-2-cerametallic-clutch-kit-06953a/vehicle/1975-ni
  8. Yes good point, I honestly don't even know what brand that MSA kit is.
  9. Please move if this is not the right section for it. I was wondering if anyone had documented their A/C install as the MSA A/C kit 'manual' is a joke and useless. This is the kit I am talking about: http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic09b06/16-7568 Thank you!
  10. The degrees you can read off the pulley with a timing light are based on TDC of piston one as far as I know? hence I should be able to tell the camshaft position since the crank and cam are linked with a chain.
  11. But the ECU knows TDC from #1 piston from the Crank sensor. Same as reading it with the timing light from the crank pulley.
  12. But since the cam is connected to the crank it shouldn't matter? 1/2 crank rotation = 1 cam rotation Knowing the crank rotation I should be able to tell the cam rotation?
  13. Can I use fully sequential injection with only a crank position sensor? (Hoke trigger wheel) My MS3 gives me an error saying I need a cam position sensor, but knowing the timing of the first cylinder should be sufficient to calculate the rest? or am I forgetting something? Thanks!!
  14. Thank you! I got a 50mm wastegate and will add the piping directly to the manifold. As for the pistons, I will wait and see how the current pistons look like. I am still not sure if forged or just dished. I will go for a safe tune, monitoring as many things as possible. Thank you again for all the info -- helped me a ton!
  15. You are absolutely right, just re-did the math with the SX252e and I'd need 13.8psi to get to 350 on the crank @6500 -- see map attached. Do you think a WG spacer will do in this case? I am still unsure if I should: run the flattops with a stock gasket flattops with a thicker (1 or 2mm) gasket get dished pistons go forged
  16. That's what I was fearing especially running close to 20psi of boost. So I guess I'll have to get the manifold welded.
  17. Thanks @seattlejester!!! After checking these out I have to admit I really like the S252SX !! I thought of getting the GT28 before but after all the research I think it might be a tiny bit too small. I will be running a wastegate (T3-T3 spacer with WG outlet) to get the boost under control. Thank you!
  18. Thanks for the input guys! I wanted a quick spooling turbo but you are right, after going through all the maps 3k sounds pretty 'right' to me. I thought of either getting forged pistons or getting a 2mm metal gasket which would give me a CR of 7.86:1with the flattops. 91 fuel, Megasquirt 3Pro (at least that's the plan) This is the turbo I thought of getting:
  19. A few things still needed for my turbo build: T3/T4e turbo (T04E 50 trim, .63 housing) Wastegate Intercooler Fuel pump MS3Pro (highly doubt someone sells one used but you never know.. ) Fuel pressure regulator 240SX throttle body Let me know what you have! thanks!
  20. Thanks guys the links helped a lot!! So after doing some math, I got to around 37.95 lb/min for 345hp (should get me in the 300whp ballpark) which then translates to around 18.4psi of boost (calculated with 5.6k RPM) and a pressure ratio of 2.55. After translating that to the compressor maps I saw that the 60-1 is definitely too big for my needs/wants. So my favorite right now: T04E50 Trim, what do you guys think? Also, does anyone know where to get ALL Turbonetics maps for their current lineup? I only found 7 on their website.
  21. Thank you guys, I guess they will be too slow then. Can anyone recommend a turbo that spools quickly (around 2.5 - 3k) ? thanks!
  22. I am currently converting my Z from carbs to turbo. F54, P90 head, flattop pistons, 60mm 240sx tb, 440cc injectors, intercooler, upgraded pump and lines I want between 300-350hp to the wheels and want the turbo to spool between 2.000-2.500 but also have some top-end power. I currently have my eye on these Turbonetics options: T3 w./ 60-1 HiFi, st. bearing, oil cooled, F1-57, and .64 A/R (maybe .48?) OR T3 w./ T04E Super 60, st. bearing, oil cooled, F1-54 and .64A/R What do you guys think would be my ideal choice? Thank you!!!
  23. I also just changed my alternator with the 60amp zx. I will have to look into the wiring and will also add a capacitor. Thank you
  24. I will definitely look into this! I have a new Speedhut Tach, so it must be a wiring/condenser issue. Thank you
