1977 280Z w/ rebuilt LS6 & T56 <2000 miles

Recommended Posts

I have spent $30,000, asking for $20,000.

 

I would consider this car "rust free," there are a few small spots of surface rust. The factory undercoat is still on it. I purchased it with the stock inline 6 and drove it for a summer. It ran great, but it was purchased with the intention of doing the swap. Body has just under 89,000 miles, drive train less than 2000 miles.

 

I sourced the LS6 and T56 from a CTS-V. (has the strongest T56 and I wanted a 5.7 for a fast / high revving motor)  You probably already know the LS6 has better heads, intake manifold, etc. The motor and transmission were both completely torn down and rebuilt by a couple of the most reputable shops race in the USA, located in Chicago. Trans had billet keys and bronze fork pads added. The motor has forged Diamond 11.0:1 pistons, ARP rod bolts and head bolts, Cometic head gaskets, ATI balancer, Comp rocker kit, and a custom Bullet cam. Otherwise, I did the whole conversion myself. John's Cars front mounts with poly motor mounts, John's Cars trans crossmember and mount, John's Cars driveshaft. No power steering or A/C. All factory gauges work with some fancy adapters and electronics. I had a flash put on by Speed Inc, with the intent to dyno tune, but never did. (removed VATS, secondary O2s, etc.) Should easily be 500hp, and it idles and drives wonderfully all the way to 7,200 RPM. (Cam specs: 237/244, .625"/.625", 114 LSA)

 

EVERYTHING is new:

entire accessory drive, plugs wires, sensors, starter, etc.

custom wire harness from Wiring Specialties

LS7 clutch & aluminium flywheel with Tilton 7/8 master and LS7 slave cylinder, MGW short throw shifter

Champion aluminum radiator with John's Cars Vital liquids kit and JTR radiator hose T

JTR ducting kit and a giant AEM filter

Converted DBW with Lokar LS1 throttle cable and custom mounting bracket

Bosch 044 fuel pump, Earl's 100 micron pre pump filter, Bosch 36lb injectors, all new fuel lines, Corvette fuel filter and regulator

John's Cars headers with titanium exhaust wrap to keep temps down in the engine bay, custom 3" stainless exhaust

all brake lines and fuel lines have been heat wrapped in the engine bay

Odyssey battery relocated to back

 

In my opinion, the project is not complete, but I have lost interest. My future plans were fender flares, big tires, big breaks, clutch LSD,  axles and N20. :-P Anyways, she rips; pulls on my buddy's 500WHP C6 Z06 from a roll all day...

 

I'm sure I am forgetting stuff... The complete list of parts is too long, but I assure you no expense was spared. I will try to get the car on a lift for more underside photos. I can provide video of it running as well. Everything works except the clock. Car is located in Moab, UT. I have the original paper work from when it was driven off of the lot with 10 miles, manuals, spare parts, etc. If you have any questions, I would love to discuss it in further detail. Thank you very much.
