  1. Thats pretty sweet, backbox setup looks like it came off a Porsche or some mid engined exotic.
  2. End results look good though. They all are. I really want to run a v stack filter setup on mine but can't find anything with a small enough size (2.5" tube from each turbo) I am hoping to find somewhere that can make me something that could be used with a k&N filter and this would involve a lot of searching to find the right one.
  3. While removing the bend would be beneficial the filter would be too small and you would loose flow and some hp. Even if the filter was 10cm by 10cm which is probably bigger than what would fit there it would be rated to less than 100hp. If you could fit a velocity stack filter on in place of the one you have it could net some good benefits however.
  4. Check out Top Stage Composites, they do FRP and Dry carbon consoles and at least used to make dry carbon dashes.
  5. You can calculate the minimum size you need and go from there knowing anything bigger than that is better. https://www.knfilters.com/filter_facts.htm https://streetandcircuit.biz/engine-air-filter-size-calculator-find-correct-size-air-filter-small/
  6. Good luck getting it sorted so we can see more videos of this beast.
  7. I did some measuring yesterday for speccing new wheels and it look like I'll be able to run a 8.5x16 with a +14/15 offset, there would e no way I could run +20 and thats with skinny coil overs. With the plus 14 I only had 3mm spare, perhaps 4mm at a push. Good news for you if you only want an 8" then as an 8x16 with +20 offset would bring the wheel to the same place as my 8.5x16 ET14 and therefore its quite likely possible for you. Provided you have coilovers though.
  8. Would there be a performance benefit from changing it to a return style setup due to possibly cooler fuel?
  9. Well, it would, but its going to be super close to the shock at the rear if it clears at all and at the front you will be hitting the chassis on full lock.
  10. We do need more videos.
  11. Yes. I have just over 25mm clearance, enough to run a 8.5" but not sure if its enough to run a 9".
  12. That would definitely fit on my car as its only 10mm further in than my current setup and not as far in as my planned 8.5" 245 rear setup will be. Not sure on the front though, while I can run wider there it would mean less lock as my 225/45/16 8x16 +10 already hits on full lock.
  13. Nice, I'll hoping to go for some SSR Watanabe RS8 wheels on mine. Hopefully they clear as my current Rota RBRs do not. Nice choice of wheel, don't think I've seen that fitted to many S30s. +10 is a better offset, mine clear fine, but its close. Think I may have a small amount of leeway, so might try and move the new wheels out 5mm as I want to run 8.5" on the rear.
  14. Still enjoying your work on this build. That engine looks great in the bay. I'm sure its not problem where you live like it is in my country, but I see you have a lot of bare metal still, is it not worth giving it a quick coat of epoxy primer to prevent any flash rust from forming?
  15. Did your wheels fit over the hubs without spacers? I'm struggling to find a wheel with a centrebore big enough to fit mine, not impressed.
  16. Depends what you want. I like 16s and can confirm that with narrow coilover conversion RBR 16x8 +10 fit with stock arches and 225 tyres, anything that brings the wheel further to the outside of the car than this could potentially lead to the need to run 215s although you may get way with a 0 offset. Usually more choice in 15" by the way but I prefer 16" and need it to clear my brakes. Good tip, don't use the forum search, use google using hybridz.org at the start, always gets better results. I searched when I was a newbie and it took a lot of time, but the answers are there. Just make sure to check more than 1 source, ideally more than two.
  17. Especially on lighter blue cars, I can show you 10 photos of mine where the colour look different. Same for all the colours I'm looking at, same colour looks great in most cases then theres always a few photos where it look very different. Only way to tell is to see it in person. At the moment I'm going for a sample of Datsun 903 Metallic Blue, 072 Blue and Aston Martin Ming blue.
  18. It could be, but to my eyes Cobalt blue is a lighter/brighter blue than this.
  19. With me trying to decide what Blue to paint my Z in I quite like the blue used on the JDM Legends car, does anybody know which colour they used? http://www.superstreetonline.com/features/1973-datsun-240z-restoration-refined/
  20. Yes, mine were all bonded on very poorly, almost like an afterthought. Hopefully the JB weld holds up.
  21. None, but then my car is almost always dry weather only.
