  1. PM sent about the door sill plates and start motor.
  2. Were you ever able to get this setup together? How's she running for you? Thanks, Ian
  3. No I have an old haltech e8. I got a distributor from an 82 turbo 280, and put in a 24+1 trigger wheel (so the ecu will see 12+1). I'm going to be running a wasted spark direct fire ignition set up using ls2 coils, and I have some top feed injectors from a neo rb25 (440cc/min), which will be run semi-sequential. I'm gonna set it up to run with a MAP, TPS, IAT and wideband O2 (all of which I have already). The rest of the fuel system hasn't been sorted out yet (read: I haven't thought about what I'm doing there, at all). But I think it should be easy enough to cobble together, given the power
  4. I'm actually more set on the 10 psi number than the 225whp number. I've heard things about the combustion chamber in these motors being prone to detonation and I want to run on pump gas, so I'm hoping to just set it to 10psi, put a conservative tune on it, and whatever it makes, it makes. I'm not looking to blow anyone's doors off, so I'm sure it'll be plenty fun for me.
  5. I did some searching before posting, so I came across the Borg Warner calculator. I don't have solid VE data for the l28, and there's other holes in my knowledge on the topic, so I don't trust my own conclusions from it 100% yet. Sounds like 50% actuation of the internal wastegate leaves me plenty of headroom before I have to worry about creep. Thanks for going out of your way to find that map and taking the time to have a look at that for me, it's appreciated.
  6. If you could let me know how everything works out for you, that would be awesome. Thanks man! My thought was that the boost creep would be an issue specifically because of the low power level I'm at. I.e. I'm going to be trying to send so much exhaust through an internal wastegate in order to keep boost at 10psi, that at like 5500rpm, the internal gate just won't be able to flow enough - where as if i was operating at a higher boost, I may be able to just send more through the turbine. Am I thinking about this issue correctly or am I way off the mark? Thanks for the feedb
  7. Hi all, I'm currently in the planning/parts-buying stage of a 280z project that I intend to really dig into once the weather warms up enough to put in some real hours in the garage. It's going to be a mild restomod that's mostly for riding around and looking cool in (at least as cool as I can look, anyway), nothing too wild performance wise. Currently, I have an l28 out of a 79 280zx that I'm freshening up a bit. It's going to be honed and rerung with new rod and crank bearings, gaskets etc. I plan to run a disco potato clone from CXRacing (https://www.cxracing.com/TRB-
  8. Someone came through in PM's and I bought one from them. No longer looking. 👍
  9. Not to be pedantic, but as a former physics nerd, I have to push back a little bit on this point. Inertia is the property of objects that are at rest to stay at rest or objects in motion to stay in motion. In essence, things don't change velocity unless they're accelerated by some force (this includes objects with zero velocity - "at rest"). Inertia is absolutely not the rate of change of speed. The definition of acceleration is literally exactly that - the rate of change of speed (or more precisely, velocity). In essence, inertia is a property of mass (or in your post'
  10. I can source the spindle new, yep. Looks to be about $120-$130, and a similar price for a new distributor with the CAS in it as well. I figured I'd post a thread on here to see if anyone had an extra that they would like to turn into cash and maybe I could save a few dollars. Thanks Thanks for having a look anyway
  11. Awesome. If they're from a 82-83 l28et, that'd be great. Let me know if you turn anything up.
  12. Yes, that's exactly what I meant. Thank for you asking/clarifying; I'm going to edit the post now.
  13. I'm presently building a 280z and would like to run a megasquirt for my ignition... so here I am. Anyone have an 82-83 turbo dizzy or input shaft they'd be willing to let go of? - Ian
  14. I have one off an l28. I don't know if they're interchangeable, but if they are and no one else gets back to you, I've got one.
