  1. love it! ill be going the same route as Im going with the Terminator X ECU
  2. Im going with a Holley Terminator X ... Any way you look at it you will save $$ long run by going with it - For $1000 you not only get the ECU AND Harness you get the added bonus of real time tuning... no more sending an ecu out and back etc. Also can get rid of a MAF tune and go with speed density cleaning up the engine bay. Really, with it you can fire an engine up with 5 connections! Unreal... I almost pulled the trigger on a BP automotive harness and do the stock ECU... Stock ECU plus tuning and a new harness if going with engine upgrades = $1400 and upward for dyno tuning
  3. Do you have a 240, 60 or 80? the 240 is much easier VS the tied in Interlock system on the 260Z...
  4. I did the same! yet to fire up and drive on my end. I also was able to retain the stock sending unit by simply bending the arm so the foot would not hit the pump assembly in any way. I out the corvette regulator as close as possible to the tank so I made a bracket mounted with rubber on the back to isolate any vibrations.
  5. Found this thread - I’m calling BS on anyone that got a drivers side to fit with the cages flipped lol.... I’m doing these cutting measures later today on mine! Thanks for documenting - I’ll add to your thread even though it’s 6 years old.
  6. Fantastic Job so far! Ill be tackling my wire harness soon!
  7. Hey Richard, I know you are 100% opposed to coilovers but I must say, When I switched from Tokico to CX Racing Coilovers I didnt find to much difference in how "Harsh" the ride was and found the opposite actually... Just a note for you to contemplate.

    delete me

    well now....
  9. hit up Andy @ Syndicate Motorsports here in Upland, CA https://www.syndicatecustoms.co He made a kick ass BOLT IN kit for my buddies 260Z
  10. This statement is too true - That and remember, you are swapping in a engine and transmission designed for a COMPLETELY different make and model. No matte rhow perfect the kit you will need to be able to tweak it to fit.
  11. You could make your own mounting ears in the rear section - I would. The stock trans mounts were designed to hold a 70# trans in place not a 140# trans lol
  12. I have heard of issues on the 280Z chasis with the CX kit - I had the same issue with my engine mount as well so I took it to a machine shop with a large break press and bent the ears to sit flush with the engine crossmember. You can do this at home witha vice and a propane torch if need be. I also used the side holes and drilled another mounting point for security on the ears. For the transmission - Why not return the transmission mount and fab up a full cross mount like the hoke / JTR style mount? https://hokeperformance.squarespace.com/store/s30-ls2-engine-mounting-kit Where are you in cali? I could point you in the direction of local machine shop to bend your tans crossmember? Do you have an IG? PM me it ill conenct you with a guy that made his own as well with minimal welding and worked / is holding amazing!
  13. I searched for over 2 years for a non rsuted part out.... no luck. Im now fabricating my own from sheet metal. Good luck!
  14. count the splines - 240 will have 25 - 280 will have 27
  15. I have some I can send you and then you can send them back when your done measuring?
  16. What’s your PayPal? I need a set + the jig. Thanks!!!
  17. those look great man! Curious if you have come up with a solution to the header issue. it seems amlost EVERY single LS swap header has this issue except the stock headers. Im contemplating keeping stock headers at this point lol
  18. Great choice on coil overs! I have the same - only gripe is the studs are not long enough to run a strut tower. I replaced them with 6mm longer studs for this exact reason. Nice work so far!
  19. Hey Joe, Want to trade Shifter Relocation part? I have a GTO trans ( I didnt know this) and the MGW short shifter as well. I need the inner part and would gladly trade you my GTO for your F-Body one
