  1. I've got one. Shoot me an offer via PM and we can work something out.
  2. If you just want to widen a set of the OEM wheels, these guys can probably do it: http://weldcraftwheels.com/
  3. ModernS30 is right about them being ZX wheels, and I'm also unsure of any larger aftermarket wheel that looks similar. Side-note: why are the front sidemarkers red? Isn't that illegal?
  4. The mod motors mount differently than the 5.0s and other older engines, so I really doubt anything will work. As far as AC, I'm not sure since I'm deleting it on mine, but I'm pretty sure you'd have to relocated the AC compressor at the very least.
  5. No one currently makes a kit. Once I actually get my engine installed, I can help you out with dimensions and whatnot, but I'll be running a different trans than you (T-56 from an 03-04 Cobra).
  6. Mine's still a work in progress: inZane 240, that engine bay is amazing.
  7. +1, I'm looking forward to seeing how this comes out.
  8. I've got a set of black door panels that came out of my '71 240Z that are in great shape. PM me with an offer if you're interested. Thanks.
  9. Nice looking Z you've got there. The first 3 pics are my favorites.
  10. I'm thinking that I'll be fine with a Cobra oil pan (they're rear sump instead of front sump like the Continental one) and an oil filter relcation. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get many of the other parts I need from the junkyards due to the cold weather. Hopefully this winter is a short one. I did, however, pick up a pair of front spindles and hubs from an SN95 Mustang. It doesn't look like it'll take too much work to use them on the Z, and then I'll have the lug pattern and brake options that I want.
  11. From your post, it doesn't sound like you fully understand the concept of what Vtec is. I suggest that you do more research. And to answer your question, no, you'd basically have to fabricate a new head in order to have variable valve timing (what Vtec actually is) on a 280Z. Also, I suggest you don't make blanket statements such as "not a fan of most Honda drivers."
  12. It says "requires welding" in the ad on ebay. I'm assuming that the picture is just generic and not the actual ones for an S30.
  13. I've yet to actually make the mounts for mine, just mocked it up. I had the Lincoln intake manifold on it so I wasn't able to get the block all the way up to the firewall like I would have liked, but it doesn't look like I'll have much of a clearance issue. However, I've got an early 240Z which I believe has a smaller and less effective brake booster. As for a solution to your problem, some of my friends are into minitrucks and they have smaller aftermarket brake boosters to clear the tires when the trucks are fully dropped. That might be something worth looking into.
  14. Are the strut towers closer together on S130s than they are on S30s? It doesn't look like you have much more clearance than I do with my DOHC mod motor in my 240Z.
  15. Well, slight change of plans. I picked up a pair of turbos today. They're Garrett 57mm turbos. .60 A/R cold side and .63 A/R hot side with the hot side ceramic coated. They need new seals but everything looks practically brand new. I'd say they were a steal for $250 for the pair.
