Re: Anyone know this Aus/NZ Race car?

The CAMS sticker means it will be an Aussie car.

Re: CV Failure

FWIW most people here just use the OE Nissan CV's out of R31/C32/910/R32 etc with no hassles - just shorten and respline the CV shaft. I've yet to hear of a failure from them. I've often wondered if the reason I keep reading about these US style CV conversions failing is that they use a Birfield typ...

Re: IDEAL Rear Suspension - No Holds Barred

Hey Byron, yeah I think I might have ages ago. The best pics I can find are here http://www.performancegarage.com.au/blog/group-c-bluebird-turbo-vid Annoyingly, I lost the magazine I had that had a full writeup about this car and some close up pics of the rear. I remember in the article they were sa...

Re: My 4-door "budget build" - Warning, camera phone pics!

Did some welding today. It's not good enough for Weld Porn or anything, but it's not bad enough for "Welding Fails" either. IMG_2197.JPG You can see the space I'm aiming to fit it into here. Hoses will be cramped, but I'll make it work somehow. Also if I ever do this again I'm going to use...

Re: My 4-door "budget build" - Warning, camera phone pics!

Weighed up the pros and cons/potential risks and decided to go for a surge tank instead of an in-tank pump. Of course no off the shelf surge tank will fit in the space I have available underneath the car, so I'm having to make one. First step was to have a quick measure, attempt to bend some 5mm all...

Re: EFI surge tank under car

I ended up making a tank, as there was nothing on the market that would fit in the space I had available. Dimensions are 100 high, 190 wide and 65 deep (in mm, because I'm not a savage). I think I'll probably weld a Bosch pump bracket to the surge tank, and have a Carter lift pump somewhere nearby u...

Re: The L Series Header List

That is up there price wise, probably couldn't commit to that with the NZ dollar being the way it is at the moment, but I'm still very curious to see how yours turn out

Re: IDEAL Rear Suspension - No Holds Barred

I'd pretty much copy what Gibson Motorsport did with George Fury's 910 Bluebird. Except because this is "no holds barred" I'd have it all in alloy or magnesium or something. One of the main issues with the rear suspension on lowered 510's seems to be the crappy roll centre - obviously this...

Re: EFI surge tank under car

Here's an inline pump and filter mounted to the vertical surface of rear passenger seat floor. Plenty of room for all that and a surge tank. It was only after getting all this done that icehouse suggested mounting the pump to the crossmember, since the crossmember had rubber bushings to the body al...

Re: My 4-door "budget build" - Warning, camera phone pics!

Good point Byron. The old me would be taking the diff straight apart and resetting to 45, but I've found that the only way to keep things moving is to let go of some of my perfectionism and deal with things as they crop up. I plan on running some nice sticky tyres and if I do ever eventually drive t...

Re: 68 2-Door Restomod

Very nice. I actually quite like all the red stuff on the blue body, no need to get too matchy-matchy.

Same with the later front lenses - I do love those 68 grilles and headlight surrounds though, they're just so reassuringly solid compared to the flimsy later stuff.

Re: EFI surge tank under car

Yeah icehouse a friend has a 610 with an in-tank pump and he has the same problem. I did look at that region you mentioned okayfine, I just can't visualize in my head how I would lay out 2 pumps and a tank + filter in that space. Alternatively those new Aeromotive Phantom kits look quite nice but sp...

Glad I could help Bert!

What's funny is the price - they're $16 NZD here as well. Consistency eh?

EFI surge tank under car

I'm at the stage where I need to start looking at routing my fuel and brake lines and planning my fuel system. I'm running a L20B with ITB's. I'd like to mount the surge tank and the lift and EFI pumps all underneath the car. It seems that space in the rear is quite limited, does anyone have any pic...

Re: My 4-door "budget build" - Warning, camera phone pics!

Also started clearancing my crossmember for the R200. Here's an empty housing I'm using to mock up, along with my Maddat moustache bar. As you can see I've ground the ears off this crossmember already in preparation for the Datsport adjustment kit. The 4" pipe looks quite large, I'll have to ch...
