  1. Hey guys, been a loooong time since I was last on here. I am getting back into my engine swap project for my 77 280z. I sold the engine out of the z this year and picked up pieces for the swap. I am shooting for the following setup 302 EFI, W/C T5, unsure about rear differential I have a W/C T5 already but it has no bellhousing, supposedly low miles I have an 86 mustang GT 302 but I just obtained a free, running and driving 2001 Mercury Mountaineer with a 302 that I am told is the best factory 302 I can get, so I will likely be using that for the donor I do not have a rear differential for the swap, that seems to be the only other BIG item that I am missing. I have the solidwork prints from the Laine swap website and will likely be using those to fabricate my mounts. I will be updating with pictures soon. Is there anything else I will need for the swap that I cannot pull from the Mountaineer? I was hoping I could use it's ECU and electrical system in the Z. I would like to be producing over 200hp/325ft/lbs at the wheels with this setup. I was told that the cam in a mountaineer 302 is actually a truck cam and I could gain a decent HP boost (at the cost of a little torque) by swapping the cam out of my mustang GT 302. Does anyone have any experience with this?
  2. Spent 6 hours today with a Dremel Tool carefully grinding away aluminum in the transmission housing right above the first clutch pack because the metal plate wouldn't fit. The old housing had a slot in it, the new one did not. I was wondering if anyone else has ran into this. New housing is from Cobra Transmissions.
  3. Hey guys been a member on here for a while but haven't been very active. Anyway for a little background, I live in Barbados in the Caribbean which is a pretty small island. Despite the obvious benefits of living on a tropical island like all year good weather and lovely beaches, our duties on vehicles here are crazy (over 200+%) and also there are serious restrictions on vehicle importation for instance nothing older than 4 years which automatically rules out any s30 Zs. However I have always wanted one of these cars so I was left with the only legal option of importing a shell or basic chassis and building a car from scratch. I spent some time scouring the net for just that and finally found a 280z in pretty good condition and the owner was willing to strip it to the point I wanted. He had done a basic restoration a few years back to the point of primer but it was too rough a job for my purpose so I decided a full strip down from the ground up was in order and at the same time I would modify to suit. One of the issues I faced was that there were no other driving Zs on the road and just a couple S30 shells lying around and since the body came missing most parts I would have to educate myself thoroughly on the workings of the car. Also because of the unreliable work ethic of many persons available I decided that for the fun and general experience of it I would undertake the restoration and modification almost exclusively along with a good friend. This naturally required somewhere to work and the tools to get the job done, so my first order, even before I had the car was to start getting the tools I didn't already have. It's been an on and off 3 year project so far and still not done. The car in it's original state when I first got it. Looked decent from far but far from great... Of course after stripping some rust issues were found but all in all was pretty good. After the rust areas were dealt with the next plan was to convert the car from LHD to RHD since that is the side of the road we drive on here. Finding donor parts prooved to be a bit of an issue so we eventually decided that the only real way was to fabricate everything from scratch. So we made up a couple templates and pulled out our spot weld remover bit and got to work. The next step was getting everything stripped down to metal and epoxy coated. Best way for this would be a rotisserie so that was our next project, building one. Then the fun could begin... After hearing alot of horror stories about 'professional' sandblasting services I decided to blast the car myself with a small blaster from eastwood and some glass. It was NOT fun. But the results were rewarding.
  4. I'm trying to make my 83 z look much better in the front I absolutely dislike the front of it and really like the way the '78s look with the front grill. Is the front clips interchangeable? Or what are some ways I can make the front of my car look "meaner" thanks oh and body kits are something I'm interested in as well
  5. I am looking to get a custom bumper / air dam for my 82 s130 non turbo. Any one know where I can get that or who I can contact? I am ok with different types of materials. Company names company links or forum posts helps. I am in the Nor Cal area thanks, -M
  6. I need help getting dimensions for a few parts of an RB20. I currently don't have one or have the current funding to buy one. So I need help to get the following dimensions: cylinder head intake ports, cylinder head valves, cylinder head intake manifold bolt pattern, cylinder placement on block, and spark plug placement on cylinder head. I know I just need to get my hands on one but thats not to easy in the USA. This is so I can make a basic 3D soildworks model to run some solidworks simulations for both of my current projects. Any help is greatly appreciated thank you.
  7. Hello Hybridz, First, a little about myself and our little startup company. I’m a mechanical engineer with a heavy background in manufacturing and technology. My first car was a ’77 280z. It was a great little project car and a lot of fun to tinker with. I ended up doing a turbo/holset/megasquirt/edis conversion and driving the rings off of it—what a blast. I ended up selling that car and buying a ’74 260z SCCA race: Holley 4 barrel, big cam, headers, light flywheel, straight pipes. It generally terrified passengers and sounded like Barry White gargling wasps. Those two cars gave me a love for Z and an appreciation for the fantastic and knowledgeable community of HybridZ. Our company is a little one at the moment, with three engineers and assorted consultants. We started just last year and have been slowly piecing together the machinery to offer a wide range of rapid prototype services. Our primary objective is to help migrate high technology from the aerospace/medical industries to oil/gas and automotive. Our core technology is Electron Beam 3D melting of exotic materials. We are the only small private company in the world to own an Arcam EBM printer. With over $2mil invested in the machine, training, and R&D, this represents our commitment to staying on the bleeding edge of additive manufacturing. This machine uses a 60,000v electron beam to fuse powder, slice by slice, inside a vacuum chamber. The result is a 99.9% dense, tempered, high tolerance, ASTM-rated material straight out of the machine. The unique geometries that can be produced with this process allow incredible design freedom. The primary material we use is Titanium Ti6Al4v, with Inconel 718 also being possible. Other services include high temperature Ultem 3D plastic printing, precision miniature Stainless/Inconel investment casting, tensile testing, coating, finishing, CNC, and more. Thus far we've worked in conjunction with academia and various O&G/Aero companies to development solutions for their unique needs. Since we’re small and will have to work hard to achieve name recognition for the processes and our company in particular, we’ve agreed to hold various promotions through the different hobbies that our engineers have had. Cars, guns, rocketry, sports, and more. We are really trying to reach out to all those engineers out there that wrench at night and drive a desk designing for industry by day. My car buddies have been tossing around the idea of custom Inconel turbo manifolds. We’re up for trying anything that is a good demonstration of the technology. CAD-to-Metal Contest details: · The most innovative and well-engineered design will be awarded with our rapid prototype services 100% free. Services include Ti6Al4v 3D fusing or Rapid-vest Stainless/Inconel Casting. · Members have until July 1, 2014, to submit designs. Only 3D CAD formats are accepted but a short PowerPoint design presentation is suggested. · Winner will be announced July 4, 2014. · Submissions may be posted here or emailed directly for privacy. · Design components must be sub-system such as intake, exhaust, induction, fuel delivery, power transmission, etc. No complete 7-liter titanium engine blocks, guys! · Geometrical and tolerance limitations do apply. 210mm/210mm/170mm for Ti6Al4v and 1000mm/1000mm/500mm for Stainless/Inconel. Typical tolerances plus minus .007” prior to finish machining. We’ll be running a much larger and more public promotion through GrabCad next month, but this project is just for HybridZ. I’ve seen really fantastic work in the areas of custom intake and exhaust manifolds made on this forum. I encourage all those individuals to participate in the contest, and let us help you realize those ideas. This is truly a no-strings-attached contest. I simply thought it was important to give back to the community with our capabilities. I look forward to seeing your ideas and giving feedback during the design process. Good luck! Sincerely, Andrew McCalip Masson Development amccalip@massondev.com @Massondev
  8. Looking for a body kit for 1974 240Z and one for a 1983 ZX. I am in NC. 336-480-7387 dnicol9260 at gmail
  9. Before rewiring basically everything, I am making a switch panel to control all of my circuits. I am also making a panel of circuit breakers in the glove box with maybe a battery shut off switch also. Here is the plan so far: Top buttons - Headlights, tail lights, Interior lights (if I ever get one) Middle area - push button start, ignition power Lower area - Fuel pump, Radiator fan, not sure what else I will post the final results soon. Any suggestions on how to divide my lighting circuits? or for the panel? I was going to do the left separate from the right side, same as the stock fusebox. FYI - Its for a 71 240z with a 350 chevy. I have no wipers, heater, or AC
  10. Hello everyone, doing some major work to my Z that I got out of storage and the center console is shot, I have seen the bmw z3 consoles and they look like they might fit. Anyone try this?
