  1. Hey dude just picked an LQ4. My 240 is finally getting some parts

  2. Mongo Where did you get the parts for this rear suspension! I've read the whole way through and this is a fascinating design to me that I'd like to try and replicate and alter a bit. I'd like to talk to you more about your design if you don't mind. Do you order from aerospace parts catalogs or something? I know you did the custom welding I was mainly meaning the bolts, nuts, eye bolts and such. I'd love to talk to you more about all this some time!
  3. How would a turbo help with your Emissions at all? The turbo motors were all in newer cars with more stringent emission regulations. They also take more fuel and make more exhaust the turbo only helps with noise a little bit I think. That's why I thank goodness for being out in the boonies! I don't have to worry about emissions nonsense lol. ~J
  4. Gollum, This.... This is gold my friend! OMFNG! I think I can work this out now! I'm not trying to crack 300hp/300lbs/tq I'm looking between 200-275 of either at first. I have to build the rest of the car to handle it lol. I've got some rust and some spots that need reinforcing so I've got to take care of that before I go putting serious power down. I don't want my car to rip apart or something lol. I've seen some bad things happen with high powered motors and I'm trying to be as (relatively) safe as possible. Besides its my baby why nuke it! This Fuel system issue is the first thing I need to
  5. Most Def! I'm not wanting to do DOuble work or Pay double money for this. I just have basically all the stuff, a whole Z31 that I have stripped worth of parts sitting here thats why I was thinking this. Tune-ability was my next topic of discussion. I need to have the abilty to fine tune all the settings for optiumal performance at my altitude and with the crappy gas out here. Would I be Better off selling all the Z31 stuff I have and going MS or what? I've been trying to sell my guts for years and haven't gotten much response even here on HBZ. That's why I was thinking about using it. Not beca
  6. Well I guess I need a Turbo ZX Dizzy Than HELP!!! lol. I was thinking about going DIS maybe a ford or GM stock something but I might as well get the whole damn ecu at that rate and there not tuned for a Z..... grrr..... I need to cut my hair and get a better job already! ~J
  7. You Sir! I need to pick your brain a spell! I have the VG30DE Distributor, is there anyway to modify the shaft to fit the L28? Or would I be better off just getting a new distributor? I'm using the Afshin as a reference now and thus far. I just need to hook this thing up on the stand and see if it will fly. Still need about $200 for my intercooler, piping, oil lines yadda yadda yadda and still have to sort out my cooling system and such. The Joys of conversions! I Should also have 2 O2 Sensors yours saying than right? 1 for the Ecu and 1 for the AFR Gauge? I'm having to do all my plumbing an
  8. well my injectors I have Currently are just the normal turbo 260cc'ers they don't flow that much more and there still barb so I'm not too far of the rez there. I have a Wideband o2 I want to hook in for my A/F gauge Can I splice into that for signal to the Z31 ECU or do I need two 02 sensors, one for the ECU and the Other for the Wideband? I've never done this before which is why I ask. I was thinking about using Just the Wideband for simplicitys sake. Mainly I want an ECU I can make to function with a Laptop for tuning purposes. The most Applicable and recommended for that is MegaSquirt, I ju
  9. Hey HBZer's I have a question here thats a little wierd but hopefully or maybe this turns into a write up at some point. I know the whole "Rape SEARCH till you find what you need deal" and I've been doing that for several weeks but I'm wondering if anyone specifically has any experience with taking the whole Engine Management system from the VG30DE and used it on a L28E-T? I have the MAF, the Injectors and clips, the Throttle body pretty much the whole engine harness. I'm debating not using the stock Z31 Spark system be cause the car I removed this all from had spark issues I was thinking
  10. The pan on my motor now is the center sump and the turbo pan i bought is a rear sump. In theory i should be able to use it I just need the rear sump oil pickup tube if anyone has a spare laying around they can send my way. If not I just do what you said and punch the 1/2" hole and put the fitting in? Welding it would be the surest plan it seems like. Its an iron/steel/ferrous pan right so I can arc weld on it yes? Just checking Anyways thanks for the good Advise I'll see about what I can do about getting this together. Still waiting for my Turbine spacer but it should be awesome! I'm excited!
  11. So regardless right now I have to punch a hole in my Pan unless i'm able to get the Turbo pan installed somehow? hm... interesting situation.. Can you weld on the pan? It seems to be ferrous if I'm not mistaken.
  12. The whole shape of the pan itself is different. maybe i'm trippin or something I'll take some pictures in the morning but it didn't bolt up right an the sump was at the wrong side I think. As far as feed lines are concerned I have some lines my friend had specifically for this turbo, Not sure whether to feed it from the Oil Pressure sending units plug or get one of those sandwich adapters I was talking about. I know the feed has to be over the pan and the drain has to be at or below the feed line at least. Thats why I was asking what would be the most efficient and cost effective solution to t
  13. Hey there HBZ! I have a question for you gu-ru's of Turbo Z-dom! I'm converting my Stock N47/N42 L28E to a L28E+T and I've gotten almost all my P's and Q's squared away but now i'm to the last if not the greatest problem in the swap. How to deal with the oil for the turbine! My neighbor who's a crazy Diesel runnin redneck of-doom-and-terror said i should just get one of those sandwich spacers and run my oil in and out that way and there should be plenty of oil pressure for it to work out just fine. I'm suspect of this because I don't want my engine frying up and dying right away and be stuck d
  14. Is Hunting Parts, getting the final research done for the Turbo Swap/Rebuild

  15. yea i need to get back to a yard to go find some more but all of them i find are junk. My neighbor was talking to me about swaping the dizzy out for a Mallory unilite/MSD type aftermarket setup with the coil control box and disconnnecting the the stock ignition stuff. I'm wondering if i can just use one of those coil set ups to by-pass the stock setup with the stupid power transistor? I broke one open and its a little PC board inside and something tells me its not very sturdy in general so yea. What about DIS? Does anyone have any experience with DIS on a VG30DE Engine? I hit up search but no
  16. Dude, I'm glad to hear the manifold arrived safely and its going to work out for you.

  17. on another note i found this site to help with selecting a Turbo if anyone is familiar with how to use it http://www.squirrelpf.com/turbocalc/ I'm not sure what all the stock info if for the L28 or the L28T but someone may know how to use this better i was trying to figure how to use it to find a good one for me but the two turbos i have i can't locate on the map thing . ~J
  18. I wouldn't know about that i don't have any comparison for flow but i gues the 12b indicates its a smaller intake compressor so its restricting at least thats what all the DSM sites i found i don't have any other experience but its tiny and it looks like it fits on backwards from the way the turbo is supposed to mount. Unless it doesn't matter what way you rotate it. Sorry guys i'm noob status in this department, thats why i'm askin! lol I'm still workin on gettin pics guys sorry its takin forever. I'll trade someone for a stock Z Turbo ~J
  19. This one apears to be a TD05-12b Volvo Turbo which is a Mitsubishi stock type. Appearantly its way to small to use on the L28 unless i was using a pair... and i'm not about to go TT on this car lol. Perhaps it'll bolt up to my Zx2 no problem.. hm... so now i need a new turbo lol. So much for this idea thanks anyways guys lol ~J
  20. OH MA GOD I KNEW IT!!! ANON HAS NO BOUNDRIES!!!! LMFAO!!!! Bunch of /B/ Tards! ~J
  21. Ok so a few weeks back me and some friends of mine were at a junk yard and we ran across a Volvo 740 Wagon Intercooled anf snatched a Pretty good turbo ( No shaft play, spins easy, a little oil on it but generally pretty clean.) And i got a Turbo Manifold for an L28 now (Thanks Scott_M67) now i just gotta get the Volvo turbo off the stock volvo mani and try and mount it on the L28 one. I've been searching for a few weeks trying to ID it, i had a model number for it but i forgot to bring it with me to work but when i ran it it said it was similar to a Mitsu of some type or another does anyone e
  22. LOLOLOLOL!!!! I Don't know man he seems pretty funny now you beat him down a little bit lol So who was clownin who? thats the question now i think. Whatever Skib won +10pts to Skib! ~J
  23. Yes, I belive Skib Indeed Hates clowns mucho.... Inspite of teh Lulz at the funeral... he indeed hates clowns.. Its Probably an "It" Thing lol~J
  24. Does it sound like a metalic grinding or just clank clank clank? I'd Check your Wheel Studs and makes sure the lug nuts are tights and i would double check your u-joints cause its possible they're shot. This sounds like my car about a month ago and it was both of these things. Make sure your wheels rae bolted down tight and your Axles aren't grinding. ~J
