  1. any build pictures? Looks like a good looking car.
  2. @Zetsaz yup, that's awesome
  3. I'm really happy with the way my current build is going, don't think I have a "dream build" though. Everything I've wanted to do I've began or started to brain storm ways to achieve it, the down side to this is the Z is NEVER going to be finished. I guess I just like trying new things and I enjoy seeing a genuine reaction on someones face when they see the car. After this one is "done" i think I'm going to be looking for a Cummins engine out of a dodge ram and possibly tinker with the Idea of AWD. Always thought it would be cool to see a stock looking Z ripping around with a turbo diesel.
  4. @HuD 91gt it felt like a life time. Hoping to find some time this weekend to plug away on the end tanks.
  5. lol I think it took me 4 hours, that includes farting around on some other stuff. Ended up cutting off the end tanks on the intercooler and started my cardboard template.
  6. one side of the plumbing is almost done.
  7. Ended up making a brace to the block that's able to support the weight of the turbo, fingers crossed it doesn't crack on me. Will also be modifying the water neck outlet to pass below the waste gate.
  8. great looking car, post a break down!
  9. Haven't had to much time to plug away with work being as busy as it is and wrapping up home renovations. On the fence about mounting the turbo and snipping the hood or mounting the turbo lower and leaving the hood as is. I ended up moving the alternator over just incase I want to bring the turbo lower. Next step, modify the lower waterneck outlet and bring it as close to the block as possible. For the guys who upgraded to a single turbo has anyone braced the turbo back to the block or frame of the car?
  10. I used the stock one from a 350z, havent had an issue with it.
  11. I ended up putting the engine in today. Good news is it clears it by half an inch!
  12. @softopz havent tried to put it in the engine bay yet, going to test it this weekend hopefully. Fingers crossed I dont have clearance issues, im not running CX mounts. he's a pic of how the car sits as of monday. Worst case I cut the car apart again and sell it to the scrap yard.....
  13. im everywhere with this project really need to focus on one thing. Back from the powder coater, heres a little teaser!
  14. printed off some of tubes to do my mock up. The plan is to try and shorten up the tubing as much as possible to try to keep all the tubes even. Also welded in the patch panel
  15. @seattlejester I considered just moving it and rewelding it but the shop that did my tuning suggested running a ford iac. After I put the sandwich plate on the oil filter it gave me enough room though so I'll probably just run it like that until it stops working. @Geno750 thanks for the input, great to know its doable. Would you say its worth doing the swap? Looks like it could get costly....then again everything we do to our cars seems to cost an arm and a leg.
