  1. So I ran through your parts list, googling for the exact part when I could and estimating when I had to. Prices in USD Turbo 1800 BC 350 Inj 400 Plugs 25 Intake 1500 FMIC 1200 Pump 100 FPR 150 ECU 1600 Clutch 500 TOTAL 7620 Convert that to AUD and it's $11,283 at current exchange rates. With those parts I would expect an even larger bill, to be honest. $2k-4k for install as well as tuning is a bargain in my opinion.
  2. I'm not near my car right now and don't remember the footwell area well enough to 100% confirm that's the correct spot, but I believe you're correct. The oblong holes in the engine bay are fed by ducts like these: https://www.thezstore.com/product/5706/reproduction-fresh-air-duct-kit-70-73-240z They take air from the round holes on the core support and feed those ducts. Then there would be a round knob at the bottom of the dash to control a flapper on the blocked off round holes in the interior. That mechanism looks like this: https://www.autopartone.com/products/72-73-datsun-240z-oem-climate-control-fresh-air-vent-switch-right I had been planning on doing the same thing, and I think others have run wires that way in the past.
  3. The guy whose harmonic balancer fell off is on this forum. He's been posting about it over in the turbo section.
  4. Ah man that sucks. Just when you almost had it all buttoned up. Hopefully it's something minor and you have it back on the road quickly.
  5. Carb tuning has so many variables it's crazy.
  6. You're replying to threads from 15+ years ago
  7. It looks fantastic. Congrats on getting it out to a show for the first time.

    I found one a while back. Mods please delete so the spammers stop messaging me
  9. That looks awesome. This is just conjecture, but I'd bet that the stock body doesn't have the precision to where 1/8" per side will stand out. I can't imagine it would perfectly slide down and contact the whole rail even if the frame was perfect.
  10. Determined that leaving your full fenders there wouldn't work?
  11. I don't like G-noses and I'm not the biggest wide body fan, but if that paint is decent that's a hell of a deal.
  12. Even Church of L-Series has gone downhill a bit over the last year or so. The same experts are still there, but it used to be mostly people that were in the know, and now it's a lot more like the other groups.
  13. That depends on what you need. Stock replacement or aftermarket stuff? Motorsport Auto (MSA/TheZStore), Z Car Depot, and Z Car Source are all solid sources for stock stuff. KF Vintage JDM is the goto for replacement sheet metal. Skillard offers a lot of stuff if you're looking to replace stock parts with something more simple and a little industrial. Then there's stuff like ProTunerz, Milkfab, Stuff Harry Does, etc
  14. I've run them as close as 1/4" before. I never had an issue, but other wheels may flex more.
