  1. This weekend, my coworker and I will be laser scanning the inside and out of my 280z. The model will be setup as such: 1. Fenders and front bumper off 2. All doors open, windows down 3. Interior stripped (except ceiling) 4. Wheels off 5. RB25, tranny, installed 6. Core support cut/altered I will be hanging the fenders, bumpers, and my turbo from my garage rails in such a way that they are included in the scan as well. I will be able to piece together the model eventually. The reason I'm bringing this up is I will be making the point cloud available for purchase and download. It will be a multi-gig file, so I will need to setup an FTP. Thanks, Jeff
  2. Sorry for the lack of different angles. This manifold is legit! Clean welds inside and out! It's rather heavy as it's thick wall pipe. As I'm typing this, I can't remember if the piping is schedule 10 or 40, but really feels and looks like 40...I'm a piper by trade. My only problem I have is that I purchased a titanium stud bolt kit from real street performance and will end up needing to go with hex-head bolts on 4 of the bottom flange bolts as I can't get a wrench around the nuts that came with the stud bolts due to their length and clearance between the ends and the pipe. I guess I could cut the stud bolts shorter, what do ya'll think? ps I have a different hose end fitting coming to get rid of that high point in my oil line. pss See the model specific 240/260/280z forum about my laser scanning post. Thanks, Jeff
  3. I will post photos of that when it's delivered. I've wondered that myself.
  4. Hey everybody, a quick update. I went ahead and BOUGHT my turbo manifold. See picture attached...I hope I'm not violating policy. I purchased the mani from Sinco Customs. I thought the single waste gate design was something never done before. Well, they do it. I think they're the only ones who do it the way I had designed it. I sent the owner my design and told him about the priority I had given the waste gate. I gave him my clearance dimensions and pictures of my setup. Honestly, I was lucky to come across Sinco. It was between them, 6Boost, and Future Fabrication. I couldn't beat Sinco's price. I got it in Stainless but not the burn finish.

    Slave Cylinder Pushrod Torque

    Hello all, I am searching for the amount of newtons or ft/lbs of torque the RB25's oem slave cylinder's push rod exerts. Would anyone happen to know this trivia question? Thanks in advance!

    Any chance this guy still has the car? I'm ready to buy
  9. Looking to buy the internal waste gate EFR 7670D turbo in .92 trim. I can also trade a 7670C no wastegate.

    1975 280Z RB25DET-S2 Project Car

    Honestly, I've cooled my head. Found someone who I can throw money at to finish her up.
  11. Hey to all, I am testing the waters to see what my project's worth as is. I do not have the time to complete this project on my own. I'm willing to throw money at it to finish, but don't know where to take it. I live in Southwest Louisiana in case you're wondering. Refreshed engine - New gaskets, ARP bolts, OEM head gasket Sanded, primed, and bedlined engine bay and cleared with metal flake Borg-Warner 7670D Twin Scroll 1.05A/R About the car: Bought the car in New Mexico. Surface rust beneath the fenders but can be sanded out. No rust on floor boards up front. Surface rust near the back of the seat mounts but nothing serious. I the frame rails need to be repaired as there is rust damage there. No rust around drip rails, or in spare boot. No rust on or around hatch. Illumina adjustable springs and eibach springs bought for front and back. Only back has been installed, along with poly bushings. Carbon Fiber rear spolier and front splitter 5-speed manual that came with the engine Bought but not installed: New weather strip kit for whole car Eibach lowering springs (front) and tokico illumina adjustable (front) Poly bushings for front suspension I have a spare R-200 that comes along with it, but it's not worth much as I thought it was an LSD, which it isn't.
  12. Would you ever consider selling your rocker arm suspension design as a blueprint for me to fabricate for my car?

    70-78 Z Car Shell Wanted

    Looking for a shell. Only real requirement would be light to no rust. Planning to come back with a tubular frame, so the exterior is important. Preferably no rust on drip rails or rear hatch area. No rear hatch needed. Doors would be nice to have but not necessary. Like I said, looking for something to build a frame in. Preferably less than $1000. Preferably within 12 hours of Louisiana. Would consider arranging freight if shell is cheap enough. Thanks! Jeff

    Still for sale?
  15. FYI, I did a test fit because I was worried about the steering column. As it turns out, I'm clearing it just fine but I'm getting close to the engine mounts (Whitehead performance). I had a small set back (unexpected expenses) and will not be able to have these fabricated for another month. But I will keep everyone posted as progress is made. Jeff
