  1. In my opinion, the only diff mount suitable for a short nose swap is something like this. They're too short to just cantilever something off the old diff mount holes, and a piece of plate with slots and lightening holes isn't a great substitution. T3 makes really pretty parts with really nice welds, but I'm consistently confused by some of their engineering choices.
  2. Did you remove the engine when you took out the 4L80E? If you have adjustable mounts, maybe you didn't get it back into the same spot. Pictures would help a lot.
  3. I don't know of anyone that has done it offhand, but the results of E85 would be that you can run more timing and boost, your fuel mileage would drop, and you'll need a bigger fuel pump and injectors to hit the same power levels.
  4. The spindle pins are such a pain in the ass. Something I found really helped was getting a medium-sized tub, and then filling it with about a gallon of 50/50 ATF and acetone. It's like penetrating oil on steroids. Set the side of the strut/control arm assembly with the spindle pin into the tub and let it soak for 2 or 3 days. I stopped breaking threaded rod after that.
  5. Yeah, you can get a brand new Jeep CAS for $40-50, and the modifications are simple. You're not saving time or money by trying to modify the timing cover.
  6. This is HybridZ and we're a bunch of degenerates, so of course you should engine swap it.
  7. Plenty strong is a matter of opinion. I wouldn't run a bar in my car that wasn't at least pinned.
  8. How do these bars latch? The spring looks like there isn't much room before it binds, so if it's a sleeve style latch, there won't be much throw or interface of the tubes. That would worry me.
  9. If you do want to go with the Bentley center console, I'd get some measurements on it before committing. It looks quite a bit wider than the Datsun console, which is close to the seats the way it is. Grannyknot's picture is of his 240Z. Here's the full build thread Do you have a link to the auction results for the high dollar Zs you've mentioned? I hadn't heard of any restomods going that high, so it would be interesting to see what it takes in terms of finishes to sell a restomod for that much.
  10. His username is BoozeBaron, so I'm going to guess alcohol distributor?
  11. FYI - the important dimensions of all S30s are the exact same. There will be some minor differences, but the engine bay size of a 240Z, 260Z, and 280Z are the same. 280Zs never had turbos. That didn't come until the 280ZX, which is a completely different car. More people have installed the Apex kits now since that series started, but there still haven't been a ton of reviews involving usage. The Toyota 1GZ was produced until 2016 and is essentially two 1JZs stuck together. It doesn't quite have the panache that a Ferrari engine would, but they're significantly cheaper, and any shop that works on JZs should be able to handle a rebuild.
  12. Derek owns Datsunworks. The bellhousings are available through Godzilla Raceworks.
  13. The first 10 were spoken for long ago, but Chris just posted a day or two ago that they're doing a second run and had 8 left.
  14. I just PMed you, but don't use apostrophes or other special characters in the title. The forum doesn't like it.
  15. What keeps it from doing this? Just a bolt that got loose?
