Acesss's 1jz 280z

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I bought a 76' 280z awhile back and am finally getting around to starting my project. Have collected a transmission out of an 09' 370z and a 1jzgte nonvvti. I'll be using the collins adapter and their fly wheel to mate the trans to the motor. 

The Z already had a boosted L28 N42 in it. Was boosted using a BAE turbo kit that the PO installed back in the 80's

 

Just sorta collecting parts currently. If anyone has advice i'd appreciate it! Thanks.

what car was the jz out of previously?

 

Can't wait to see some more progress!

I was told it was pulled out of an mk3 supra. But I'm not 100% sure. 

 

Waiting for my adapter plate/flywheel to arrive from Collins adapters. 

 

Also, i'm planning on ordering the wiring specialties harness, I was wondering how much of the original wiring that runs into the bay I need? And what is that water bottle looking yellow thing on the left side of the engine bay? I've been looking but cannot find what it is called or used for.

That yellow tank is a vacuum reservoir. Much of the hvac system on 280z is vacuum actuated. That tank helped maintained vacuum on those lines while under full throttle and other low vacuum situations.

Thanks! Got my Collins flywheel today, the adapter plate should be here next week. Just slowly collecting parts at this point.

Any updates on using the Collins kit and the CD00X transmission? That's what I had in mind for my swap but haven't gotten a sure answer on how everything fits together

I have the trans and motor mounted together. Haven't got it in the car yet, will throw up a picture tomorrow

In all reality unless you get the Z trans for really cheap an R154 might be the cheaper way to go.

Motors sitting in car, removed the power steering and A/C, replaced water pump and threw the starter on. Just waiting on my wiring harness from wiring specilaties and ill be ready to fire it up. Ill get pictures this weekend.

 

I was wondering what you guys running the 370/350z transmission are doing for a clutch master cylinder and the line running up to it? Thanks

Awesome! :2thumbs:

 

I'll be using a Wilwood 7/8 master for my clutch and a custom stainless line connecting to the slave. Look up "clutch master swap / upgrade 280z" on google. Should be the first link showing how he did it.

 

Also what are you using for your shifter?

No pictures yet. Motor came back out last week to the timing belt, water pump, and a few other things thrown on it before the wiring harness arrives. 

Should have it going back in this weekend and test fitting the Shifter from Hoke performance to make sure it'll fit. Ill take some pictures this weekend and throw them up. Also, I need to buy a fuel pump, any recommendations?
