  1. Do you guys have any updates on how well these have lasted in the 4 years since installing? Thanks,
  2. Hey, Has anyone ever managed to repair the interior clock? In my 280z the clock still ticks but the hands do not move. Have tried a search but so many results under clock but none on repairing them. Thanks, Ash
  3. I am in the UK or I would. Shipping and import duty will be alot I imagine
  4. Hey, I have access to a 3d printer and was wondering if anyone has an STL file for the design on a lower kick speaker panel for a 280z. Would be willing to donate some money towards the design. Thanks Ash
  5. Do you guys have pictures of the speakers under your seats? Would be interested in hit you mounted them! Thanks
  6. Hey did you ever finish these? I am looking to modify the stock speedo and control via gps. Cant decide if i should gut a cheap speedo off ebay or go the arduino route.
  7. Hey, My 280z has a 3UZ engine swap with the auto transmission and i am preparing to convert to a manual. I am having issues deciding what gearbox to use as the ratios on offer dont seem to work (in my mind atleast) The car currently has a 3.34 diff (but was hoping to put in a 3.54 subaru LSD diff at same time) and is running 16" wheels. There are various conversion kits on offer for the following boxes and these are a few examples of speed for each one, I guess i am after input on if you think the ratios will work in day to day driving or will i just shift from 2nd to 6th and that be it? Most are similar close ratio 6speeds, the RX7 box is the most promising but they are much more expensive. Do you think i could like with the close ratio 6 speeds? Lexus is200 - 70mph in 6th = 3000rpm 1st 29mph 2nd 52mph 3rd 76mph 4th 93mph 5th 113 mph 6th 130 mph Mazda rx8 - 70mph in 6th = 2900rpm 1st 29mph 2nd 49mph 3rd 67mph 4th 93mph 5th 111 mph 6th 132 mph BMW 330D - 70mph in 6th = 3000rpm 1st 26mph 2nd 45mph 3rd 69mph 4th 94mph 5th 115 mph 6th 135 mph RX7 5speed - 70mph in 5th = 2700rpm 1st 33mph 2nd 55mph 3rd 80mph 4th 111mph 5th 140 mph Thanks for taking the time to read!
  8. Hi all, I currently have a 280z which has had an engine swap to a Lexus 3uz along with the matching auto box. I want to swap to manual and have found adaptor plates that fit the rx8 gearbox. My main question is, has anyone swapped in an rx8 box (to any engine) and does it fit without any major issues? Seeing as the Lexus auto fits I don't see the bell housing being an issue but mainly worried about the shifter location and what to do with the propshaft. Also any tip on general manual swaps would be appreciated incase I haven't thought of everything! Thanks Ash
