  1. Awesome, thanks for the info. I'm going to steal your idea for an access panel in my spare tire well. As for pickup, I'm going to try the Holley Hydramat. It seems to work really well- like it will drain your tank literally dry from some accounts. FYI I heard there was a recall with that pump. I don't know when you bought it, but they seem to have a leak right where the fitting meets the plate at the top. Apparently a bad batch that was misthreaded. If you get a mysterious leak when you start it up, thats probably what its going to be.
  2. Is it necessary to mount the unit that high up since it picks up from the bottom? I was looking at this install mounted on the lower part.
  3. Will a vacuum signal from the intake be reliable enough to work an evap can valve if I mounted it near the gas tank? I'm probably going to replace it with a smaller unit. It would be nice to get that can of the engine bay. I know some people just plug it, but I think its worth keeping around to avoid any of the other issues. I'm converting to EFI so I will be putting new hardlines already.
  4. Good test video of some extreme tubing. Makes me wonder how the plug-side turbo L engine guys response would drop since the tube isn't nearly as long.
  5. Thanks for the heads up, I'll send him an email.
  6. Thanks for the link, I did a search but I didn't see those. I'll look into what goes into the conversions, but having a ready made kit is very tempting.
  7. Does anyone have any direct experience with the electric power steering units out there? Specifically Z Power steering vs Silver Mine. I know one is cheaper but I'd rather 'Buy once, cry once'
  8. These are the rip off of the wider marugens, and I have the real ones now. Its a 295 in the rear, but theres more than enough room to squeeze a 315 back there. 17x10.5's right now. Prob could've gone as far as 11.5 but that would prob be the limit with this offset.
  9. Thanks for the feedback guys. Hey AydinZ71, I see you're in LA too. Did you do the tune yourself or did you go to a shop? I'm looking for a reputable tuner that's local. Any recommends would be appreciated.
  10. It's been awhile, but it's time to start moving forward with my build. This will be a 'warm' turbo build. Not looking to win the HP wars. Currently I have a bin of parts for a motor that I'm going to load on a pallet and ship off to the builder. I have no ECU or ignition yet. I am looking up aftermarket ECU's and was wondering how far you guys with stand-alones (megasquirt, etc) have tuned the car's manners and how much work was it. I looked at the JWT 300zx upgraded ECU, but I am not sure if I will just end up with a completely remapped system anyway. While I would like power, I a
  11. Doh, must've missed that post.
  12. I came across this today when I was browsing the youtubes. Not sure if he is a member here or on the facebook group. I really like how the sound of the exhaust has changed, that's always been my only gripe with the L turbo motors.

  14. I agree. I wonder how long a coating like this would last under the valve cover. My guess is not very.
  15. Neato, but I foresee some leaks in the near future
