  1. What about using the LS tank with Holley Hydramat? Should alleviate most fuel movement concerns with aftermarket pumps and regulators. https://dsportmag.com/the-tech/stopping-fuel-starvation-holley-hydramat/ Otherwise, do any vendors offer a custom EFI tank for the 280z?
  2. But if the control arms are flipped, does it put the coilover lower mount in the same position as factory, or is it moved back?
  3. So after thinking about this more, I'm assuming that the reason for needing to move the top of the coilover back is because even though flipping the control arms moves the wheel back close to the original location, the location of the coilover lower mount is too far back, thus requiring the upper mount moved back. Is this correct?
  4. Ok, my next question is about the location of the wheels. If I bolt the mustang spindle on, the wheel will be sitting 0.75" forward from normal. I don't want to cut my fenders so I want to move it back to center. To accomplish this, I can swap left and right control arms and use adjustable tension rods. Does this put the wheel centered in the wheel well? If so, why does the coilover need to be moved backwards via rotated camber plates? Thanks
  5. Ok, I am doing this mod and wanted to shore up a few things about the tie rods. I will be using: 2014 mustang spindles 2006 mustang calipers and v6 rotors (to clear 15" wheels) 280z BC racing coilovers (with Vlad adapter plates) Factory 280z manual rack (I think.. Any way to tell for sure?) I have seen it mentioned that I can just purchase the T3 outer tie rods and use a 5/8" drill bit to bore out the 2014 mustang spindle? Is this the right one: ( https://technotoytuning.com/nissan/280z/high-clearance-outer-tie-rods-datsun-240z-260z-and-280z ) ? Or do I have to order a custom outer tie rod from T3? What about the Apex Engineered outer tie rods? I am also thinking about swapping left and right control arms and use adjustable tension rods to move the wheels back a bit. Any downsides to this? Thanks
  6. Has anyone used adjustable tension rods with this setup to move the wheel back some? Doesn't this bind up the control arm bushing?
  7. Larry, l just sent you a private message.
  8. Thanks Larry. How much would shipping be to 55127? Joe
  9. Can this mod be done with a manual rack? I was thinking of going with electric power steering and I believe you need a manual rack for that.
  10. Looking for a pair of stock control arms.
  11. Hi Alan, I haven't gotten that far yet, still working on the engine. I hope to get to it this winter. Joe
  12. I am putting an 5.3/turbo in my 280z. I am fabricating my own motor mounts and welding them to the frame rails instead of the crossmember to gain space for a downpipe. My frame rails are in great shape. Anyone see any issues with it? I know it's been done before, just wanted to double check. Thanks
  13. Any link to the laser centerline method?
  14. Does anyone know if the factory drivetrain on an S30 is offset slightly to the passenger side? I am installing a new engine/trans and I was trying to measure the centerline of the rear diff with respect to the frame rails and it appeared to be approximately 1/2" offset to the passenger side. Is that right? It's hard to get a good measurement. Thanks
