  1. You can start about page 3 of the build thread. I have almost 1K pictures of this thing, so please forgive me for not wanting to sift through them all. http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/115374-280z-53-turbo-build/page-3 You can check out my photobucket if you like. They are all on there as well. http://s592.photobucket.com/user/steepss/library/SidwayZ?sort=3&page=1
  2. Here is the 1320 Video from the above mentioned no prep race. Skip to 1:45 to see my junk.
  3. Get a 2.66 1st gear unit. These cars are light enough you don't need the extra motivation to get them going. F Body trans is good in stock form, can hold good power (700+) with a few drop in parts T56 Magnum is great, with larger holding capacity. As Keith stated, stay away from the CTSV unit as they have a CV output rather than a slip yoke, making the connection a bit more difficult.
  4. Entered the stick class at the local no prep last night and made some good rips. Here's the fast pass of the night. I ran a 6.47, 6.30, 6.35, 6.36, and spun hard to a 6.60 and lost the final to a good friend who killed it in his 5.0 coyote YSI Mercury Capri at a 6.20@115. And a picture of me on the 2 step. She is VIOLENT. Video VVVVV
  5. Took the car to the track for the first time since...... shit, since drag week 2014 ... Pulled my trailer and gear over an hour there, and made three passes. Two of which are personal bests for the car! Launched out of boost, and ran out of gear a good 75' before the traps. I'm just happy I still remembered how LOL VIDEO VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVv http://vid592.photobucket.com/albums/tt4/steepss/SidwayZ/TRIM_20160716_081447_zpssxmsyjzz.mp4
  6. Untouched 706's. We'll see - it looks like a cool event. I'm getting married the following weekend however, so it'll probably be my weekend to work. I'll just have to see when it gets closer
  7. Not at this very moment. I just took a job in the Minneapolis, MN area so we're busy dealing with that.
  8. I'll dig up some pics later. Turbo is a Turbonetics 7875 ball bearing with a .96 AR. housing (78mm compressor 75mm turbine) Hot side is 2.25" stepped to 2.5" at the merge. Exhaust is full length, 3.5" downpipe split to dual 3" before the rear axle, through Magnaflow Bullet mufflers. Sadly I don't have video, though I know there's probably 20 people who had their phones out lol.
  9. Cruised the car an hour the a dyno day a few weeks back. Long story short, I ended up getting peer pressured into putting it on the rollers. Mustang (heartbreaker) Dyno, SBE 2005 Iron block, China head studs, LS9 Gaskets, Tick Turbo Cam, BTR springs, LS1 intake T56, 8.8IRS E70 Pump, 20# Boost. Oh, and 24mpg on the highway! Anyway, here she is! (704 HP / 697 Torque for you out there not reading this on a big screen lol)
  10. I have a Howe Racing radiator. Fully custom double pass cost me right around $300. I'll be buying from them for future projects.
  11. Only thing to it is to do it. Shifter is 2" rear of the F body t56 IIRC. Great trans.... they like boost
  12. The boost still works, so thats good. http://vid592.photobucket.com/albums/tt4/steepss/SidwayZ/VID_20150808_194227982_zpseztxhqfy.mp4
  13. The baffling and ground clearance of the F body pans are both inferior to the LS3 vette pan. If you upgrade the baffle in the F body pan with an improved racing, that pretty much cures it ($$$). It still hangs an inch lower however.
  14. Did I miss what the GV unit cost? They're basically another transmission cost, yes? ~ 2500?
  15. It doesn't look like I have any pictures of that, but the extension is pretty simple. I just angled it up to the structural piece near the front edge of the "hump" as you're looking behind the seats, where it steps up about 6". There are some U channel pieces that run side to side from the wheel well to the transmission tunnel on both sides (at least on my 280). I notched the end of the square tubing (think of a fish with an open mouth) to fit, and cut the floor back so I could weld 360 degrees. In regards to the sway bar, I took it off when I did the 8.8 swap, if not before. It handles just fine.
  16. Loving the project. This is what I wish I would have done. ... Someday maybe.
  17. Its full........................
  18. PM me what you have, and a shipped price. Thanks!
  19. My car made 440whp all motor and ran in the 10's with a 6 speed as well....at 3100+#, and IRS. Potato Tomato Running 8's isn't easy, you're right. I also want to take this chance to say that I think you have built one bad ride. However, being the fastest at the track isn't my goal - that should be obvious. If I'd built a car to go straight, it would have a solid axle and an automatic. Until then, I'll be rowing gears, impressing highschool kids, and enjoying the shit out of my car.
  20. In for cars that make power and don't run fast. You boys might be forgetting something ; 6 speed. I could have put a glide in my car and gone 8's last year, but I decided to 'stick' it out. I was able to leave in boost 1 time last year, and the car did very well for the setup. It ran 9.7@151 with a 1.47 60' - This was at over 3100# with me in it. I'd like to get it into the sub 9.50's this year, as its making more than enough power to do so. It needs front suspension BADLY (evident if you've ever seen this thing go down the track). But needs some other changes to optimize the setup as well (trans gear ratios). All in all, it should be a fun year, though I won't be contending for the fastest LSX datsun award.
  21. Being able to use the truck stuff would be nice. Pretty much every chevy guy has two full sets of truck accessories in his garage.
  22. Haha mine ran the best before it died, too. only it was a 9.7@150 lol. Gotta love the ol 6 speed chevy supra!
