  1. Is there a thermostat valve/plate (Mocal, Vibrant, ...) that you could use for that thing or is there just not any room?
  2. Never used them so I don't know anything about quality deliver or ... https://kfvintagejdm.com/product-category/datsun-280z/
  3. My '71 tank only had a single baffle between the left and right side of the tank. The pickup is on one side. So if the 260's tank is the same then in a low fuel and continuous high G situation you could momentarily starve your lift pump. That shouldn't be an issue since you'll have the contents of your surge tank to prevent the engine from starving. Just as long as your lift pump is good a sucking (re-priming, not all pumps are good at this) then having that momentarily stop in cooling shouldn't cause it to die.
  4. These guys: https://www.jongbloedracingwheels.com/wheels would probably drill 4 holes for you. They're in the $800/wheel hood. I contacted them about their series 557. I wanted to know if they could do 17x8, +0 offset, 5x114.3 in black with 73.1mm bore. The guy was pretty much "whatever you want, give us a call".
  5. I know this kind of development requires real effort. Thanks for the work.
  6. While you're at it, I'll take one also for T3 5x114 hubs?
  7. I ended up using this for the cover. https://www.ebay.com/itm/322003402554?hash=item4af8e5ff3a:g:5kYAAOSw4tBecOhb I never found the plastic bushing. Mine was cracked but it seem ok and I couldn't find one. If it breaks then I think the only thing I can do is have a friend with a lathe machine one out of delrin.
  8. Tire choice and guaranteed caliper clearance is what drove me to look at 17's. Once there, I was pretty much SOL on wheel choice. The only ones that I could find that had an offset that might work for tires sizes at 225 or larger and no fender flares are the TE37V (17x8 with 4x114.3 and 0 offset). The same wheel with 5x114.3 is +25. I don't think there's 25mm on the inside even with the coilovers. The CCW are nice looking wheels. I love the looks of the classic. Their 3 piece are the only ones that are smallish at 17". Everything else is larger. 18 would be ok, but I think that it starts to look a bit too wagon-wheel on this car. I like the idea of being able to specify an offset. The CCWs is at $1150 (17x8) per wheel. That's a hard price to swallow. It's ~$400-$500 more than TE37V per wheel. I also looking at Jongbloed. They also have custom offsets and seem to be in the same neighborhood as the Volk. Did you have a shop roll your fenders? On your 16x8 +13 offset setup, do you think you could have gone +25? Since we're talking expensive customs, might as well add BC forged to this list. Still "reasonable" 🤣 at ~$3200 per set (mono-forged). Also option to buy the fifth at 1/2 price.
  9. Thanks for the answer. I'm going to run T3 Evolved coils with their BBK and I want to run 245's with no flares. The issue has been wheels. There doesn't seem to be many options out there with a small enough offset to work. I was looking at TE37V (17x8 or 17x8.5) but the only ones with 0 offset are 4x and I would prefer 5x. I suppose I could go with 16" wheels but I worry about clearing the BBK and tire options. I do like the looks of the CCW. That might be a viable option. Are you running a BBK with your setup?
  10. If you weld it, it will shrink the metal on the skin. I could cause some warping that might be impossible to hide.
  11. ATP turbo (atpturbo.com) also some. The selection of piping is more limited than some other sites but the price seems in line. They also have a bunch of v-band stuff specific to Garrett, Tial and Borg. There's also a bunch of other misc transitions (round to oval ...).
  12. Do you think you're less than six months away from needing them?
