Re: DJ's 280ZX

I finally did something I've been wanting to do for ages which is replace the aluminium intake tube that I had with a carbon one. I had to rotate the pipe with the blow off valve on it around which I've also been meaning to do for a while, that meant trimming the adjuster bolt for the power steering...

Re: DJ's 280ZX

Got the new latches in, had to make some bushes so I could use the hole saw in the original hole, worked out well though. These ones are long enough that I can use the locking rings with them as well, which I couldn't do with the old ones due to the thickness of the bonnet. https://i.imgur.com/fSDW4...

Re: DJ's 280ZX

I've got the new bonnet latches which look okay, they aren't that much bigger than the original ones which is good. Why the size change? I am about to use 4 of the smaller ones on a glass bonnet. Did you have failures or do they just feel feeble? They were Aliexpress ones and kept popping open, the...

Re: DJ's 280ZX

Got this back from storage on the weekend, need to get a couple of things sorted before the Datsun Nationals. I've got the new bonnet latches which look okay, they aren't that much bigger than the original ones which is good. I also want to make a box to go around the air filter and possibly change ...

Standard plugs are fine for it, I'm pretty sure Asher did them not that long ago though.

Re: Ls swap

No way would i ever consider turbo or super charging a 350Z ! An LS swap is the cheapest bang for your buck you will ever get with a 350Z. There are quite a few companies in the US that provide a complete kit for this which keeps all the electrics working perfectly as well. Not to mention that the ...

Re: DJ's other 280ZX

Put an exhaust on this, it was the original exhaust off the red 2+2 so I had to shorten it a bit, the tail pipe comes out the wrong side at the back but I didn't want to cut the rear valence. I cut out two new flanges on the water jet and had to make up two new hangers for it but it turned out prett...

Re: DJ's other 280ZX

Water jet an EGR block off block plate out of some stainless and gave it a quick polish. https://i.imgur.com/EaDPuRI.jpg Also gave the big Nissan rocker cover that is going on it a sand blast, it came up pretty good, would need a little bit of filler if it's going to be painted in the future. Took t...

Re: Ls swap

Been done plenty of times in the States, stock an LS1 make a little bit more power than a VQ35 and roughly the same as a VQ37 but ~100Nm more torque.

Re: DJ's other 280ZX

Bought some new boot hatch struts from Rockauto, the original ones on this have never held the hatch up since I bought it, very easy install and they came with new hardware, now it stays up on it's own. That's all I've done to this recently. James helped me cut up the parts car and we took it to the...
