Re: Dyno south island

Ah yup, the only place I know down there with a dyno is HPA but I don't think they do random tunes.

Re: DJ's other 280ZX

Cleaned the inlet manifold at work, came up a bit better. I'm going to remove the fuel rail and a couple of the other rusty looking bits and give them a clean/paint before I put the rest of it together. There were a bunch of ARP bolts at work that were going in the scrap metal bin so I liberated the...

Re: Dyno south island

You will hear good and bad stories about pretty much every place, I tend to take them with a grain of salt, there's a lot of people who blame the person tuning their car for poorly assembled/not ready to be tuned cars. You haven't said what kind of car you have or where in the South Island you are. ...

Re: DJ's other 280ZX

Got the manifolds off this. I took the inlet manifold to work and gave it a clean in the big dishwasher, it came up a little bit better. Will get it back together this weekend hopefully. https://i.imgur.com/MAJytPg.jpg This was the reason for having to pull them off https://i.imgur.com/KJye6Oz.jpg

Re: DJ's 280ZX

So the VQ35 that I bought came with a pretty much brand new set of ID1000 injectors in it, which are bigger and newer than the ones I have in this currently. They are 14mm top o ring so don't fit in the existing fuel rail, so I made a new one. Can't put them in until my new plugs show up which is pr...

Trying some concentric twisting?
yeah i herd it was a good idea so thought i'd give it a go
The guys at work do it, it's extremely time consuming and to do a full loom takes days of planning. Looks cool when it's done though.

350Z bits for sale

I bought a 350Z engine and gearbox only for the gearbox so I've got the engine + performance bits that were attached to it for sale. The engine is apparently a little smokey, it had some oil sitting in the plenum. It's missing the throttle body. It has no loom, throttle body, alternator, injectors o...

Re: DJ's other other 280ZX

Here's the box, it's pretty big & heavy. I think I got a pretty good deal, the VQ35 ended up coming with an almost brand new set of ID1000 injectors, a Honeywell oil pressure sensor, Mocal oil filter sandwich plate, plenum spacer, sump spacer, aftermarket knock sensor and an almost new bigger E thro...

is that the cd009?
Nah, the CD00A is actually the best/newest one. This is a CD001, it does have a dicky 5th gear synchro but by the time I sell the VQ35 and all the bits that it came with the gearbox will owe me about $400 - 500.

Re: DJ's other other 280ZX

I've been kind of looking for a gearbox for this for a while and just bought a complete VQ35DE and 6 speed box out of a 350Z, off to Queenstown with James this weekend to collect it. The gearbox has a dicky synchro which is pretty common, parts aren't too expensive for them, but if I can sell the en...

Re: DJ's other 280ZX

I should have looked at the exhaust manifold before I put the engine in, it didn't have down pipe on it when I took it out of the donor car, turns one of the studs was stripped. I bought another L20E for the dizzy and a couple of other bits, I was hoping the exhaust manifold was going to be good but...

Re: DJ's other 280ZX

Got one of the few parts remaining on this, some genuine Nissan rubber radius rod bushes. The bush kit that I bought came with some but they were basically solid plastic and I didn't want to use them, these should last another 10 or 20 years.

Re: DJ's 280ZX

Not sure if I mentioned but one of the issues with the clutch was the stopper was gone which I hadn't realised, so I borrowed one from the VK car, but I've bought a bunch of new ones nows. Also got some new wiper nut covers.

Re: DJ's 280ZX

Took this for a test drive a couple of weekends ago, all went well apart from I've done something to the speedo so I need to sort that out. Haven't done too much else, I've been working heaps, we had our car out at Skope doing demo laps with Greg Murphy driving, managed to unofficially break the lap...
