Re: EFI Manifolds For Sale, IR for Datsun L-Series heads

Byron, quick question, do you have the ability to make carb manifolds for non L-series applications? I know there are two people on the boards here running carbs on a k24de but it seems the manifold is nearly impossible to find. I've seen a few manifolds for the single cam version of the KA but not ...

Re: Want to upgrade brakes on a pair of S12 200SX Coilovers

That may be the direction I end up going for simplicity and cost sake. I'm already running a larger master because I did the maxima conversion on the rear brakes. If I just go with stock s12 200SX calipers and rotors, there are a few options on rock auto, no idea if one is worth it over the other.

Want to upgrade brakes on a pair of S12 200SX Coilovers

I posted the same thing on Ratsun but here goes: So it turns out I have S12 200SX struts and not 280zx struts which I'm turning into coilovers. The pads/rotors on the struts are completely toast so I want to upgrade them to something a little better. I did a few searches on here and it looks like yo...

Re: 300mm Big Brake kit vs 276mm Micro Big Brake kit with 15inch Watanabe's?

If you are not racing...it really is not a big deal! Okay is right, unless you are truly racing, you do not need BIG brakes, as even the larger rotor increases the weight. Larger rotors means it takes awhile and some serious heat to get things working, and again, unless you are racing, the smaller ...

Re: Front short strut inserts whats available in 2019?

I wanted to bump this up because I have a similar question. For shortened 280zx struts/coilover conversion how do the koni sports compare to the koni race's? It it worth the extra bucks over the Tokico Illumina's? Going to be running a 250lbs spring up front on the coilovers.

Who do you have for insurance and how much do you pay?

I'm in the process of doing a few modifications to my 510 after shipping it out to the west coast from the east coast and I'm realizing that I probably need to have it insured for a higher agreed upon value. My guess is that if something were to happen to the car now, I'd probably get next to nothin...

Re: 300mm Big Brake kit vs 276mm Micro Big Brake kit with 15inch Watanabe's?

One of the other things I've been told is that the unsprung weight of the 280zx stock setup is higher than what it would be for a wilwood replacement which seems like an incentive to upgrade. It's also my understanding that the 280zx brakes are single piston vs wilwood being a 4 piston which should ...

Re: 4 piston calipers

There is no easy way. The Nissan 4-pots need serious inside-wheel clearance as well, and generally only fit with FWD-offset stuff. Easiest way to fit 4-pots to ZX struts: DQ Volume 5 Issue 3 - Bigger Brakes, Wider Track - The 280ZX front brake upgrade is a great way to improve your 510’s stopping. ...

Re: Should I shorten 280zx struts?

if going with the mr2 inserts, what brand of inserts do most people recommend. I'd like to get something adjustable to match the rear coilovers.

Re: Should I shorten 280zx struts?

The plan is to run coilovers front and rear. I know some people run 350/350 with front and rear coilovers but I didn't want to it to be that stiff.

Should I shorten 280zx struts?

I'm doing the 280zx coilover conversion kit from t3 and I'm not quite clear on whether I should shorten the struts as part of the process. I know it's an issue of ride height but I'm not super in tune to the pros and cons. Currently, I'm running an L20b but may upgrade to a ka in the future. Additio...

300mm Big Brake kit vs 276mm Micro Big Brake kit with 15inch Watanabe's?

I'm in the process of doing a couple upgrades on the suspension of the 510 and I'm looking for some guidance regarding brakes. So far I've ordered the rear coilovers and the front weld on kit for the 280zx struts. Right now for an engine I'm running an L20b with dual Mikuni 40's but at some point in...
