  1. I've got a new set. Ground control coilovers with tokico illuminas. contact me at turbobuick87@hotmail.com if interested.
  2. Lot of NOS 240Z parts http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/pts/4487800078.html
  3. Matt, What gear set were you running in the Q45? Had you ever considered an R230 with a Quaife LSD and Richmond gears? A friend runs this set up in his 300ZXTT that puts down 717hp and 630 lbs torque. It is a daily driver and regular track car. The limiting aspect is the ring and pinion ratio.
  4. Rick, Beautiful build. I hope to do something similar. Not busting balls, just curious that you bought the BullDawg LSX swap kit, but then fabricated your own mounts. Can you give us any insight to this? I've heard their mounts, John's cars and JTR's are good for the LSX swap. I have heard that with these kits you may have to buy the 58m offset for the T56 trans to set it back close to the stock location of the original shifter. Thanks for any insight. Tyson
  5. GOTHALOSISM: Think before I post??? LCA's or bodyparts, it makes no difference. The issue is Justin's immaturity and poor business practice. First and foremost, if I had a complaint and I'm being served by a waiter or am having an issue resolved at a dealership, than that waiter or dealer representative better have enough sense not to point the finger at the cook or manufacturer as a scapegoat to the issue. Sure the later may serve as the root of the problem, but the aforementioned still represent the product whether they like it or not. Can you image a Nissan dealership calli
  6. Wow. Isn't this the pot calling the kettle black. For Justin to say this is another "shady" business is a joke. He has the shady business. When I ordered my LCA's from him in Jan 2011, he was taking the orders for the next lot of 10. They were supposed to be finished and shipped within a "few weeks." Three months later I found out that he never satisfied the original order of 10, as people were still waiting and complaining. Several months went by. I checked in at about 6 months. He said that he moved and now the shop that had the jigs and did the work was too far for him to keep

    R230 LSD swap

    need4speed069 is incorrect. Armadas used the 2.937 gear ratio beginning in 2004. See my tutorial on the conversion with photos. It is nearly complete, but goes through many of the steps. It is not a do-it-yourself conversion without the right tools and some additional knowledge on shimming. I'm in over $1000 easy on this conversion. I'm hoping it works. So far it looks good. Please note, the expense was due to a complete overhaul. New bearings, races, seals, bushings, powder coating, machining, etc... Tyson

    Between what R230's? The 300zxtt came with one and so did the Nissan Armada. The differences are subtle. Do a search on my R230 conversion and you'll see photos. Tyson
  9. Need R230 differential shim/s (side to side) for my R230 conversion project. Nissan is out of inventory. If you have some laying around please contact me. Thanks, Tyson turbobuick87@hotmail.com 831-252-2106
  10. The kits are fantastic, but they are custom made for the shop directly. Rob has put in lots of time, energy and money into developing his kits. He's looking to be compensated for that and this happens through installation process. He has enough business he can turn it away. The bigger issue is liability. Since every car is different and these are custom kits, his team is equipped to handle any minor tweaks. Selling them directly could lead to lawsuits for improper installation. Furthermore, he doesn't have the time to sit on the phone with everyone who purchases the kits and needs questi
  11. Good luck getting Justin's attention. I paid for my RLCA's in January and he has made no progress on them, not a single weld. He's still not fulfilled the original 10 that were ordered.
  12. @ yessir - ???????? Not sure what you mean. Can you re-drill the output flanges? Do you mean change the spline count? The reason for using the 300zxtt diff is for the LSD. The reason for using the Armada ring gear is the gear ratio. The reason for using the 300zxtt output flanges is that they are the same spline count as the LSD and they clear the lower A arms on the car better when bolted up to a modified moustache bar. So here is a little progress on my side to side lash issue and back lash. To create the correct amount of back lash needed I milled .025 off the LSD housing shown
  13. Having the right tools has made this job much easier. My friend Lewis at Oller Brothers Auto in Santa Clara (2555 Lafayette St) has also been a huge help. He's put up with my questions and led me every step of the way. Here are some more shots:
  14. I've hit a road block as mentioned in Cyrus's post at this hyperlink: http://forums.hybridz.org/index.php/topic/40615-2941-3111-and-3361-gears-in-a-r230-i-did-it-sort-of/page__p__331349__hl__cyrus__fromsearch__1#entry331349 CYRUS WROTE: "The set up will work but I need shims of ~1.6mm on the left and ~3.54mm on the right, but nissan only sells 2.0 mm-2.5 mm. The shims are 99mm in dia. The only other issue is the right bearing only is in contact with 2/3 rds of the machined case. This leaves 1/3 of it to float in air. I am not sure if this is significant." The pict
  15. And I was wrong, the ABS sensors can be pressed out and will not interfere. Sorry for any mistakes. The finned 300zxtt cover fits great.
