Test fitting the header and intake before the engine goes into the car. Intake is a Datsun Comp copy which has been given an angle grid by Rebello already as it was touching the header on the dyno. With my new comp header is was still touching so I ground back some of the intake and gave the header ...
All I know is that everyone I talked to before having Rebello build the motor said basically the same thing. TRUST DAVE! Dave Rebello is the owner and has more knowledge in his pinky than I will ever accumulate in my life. He builds every motor for Troy Ermish and many other race cars that are consi...
More slow progress...getting the header from Ermish racing and had it coated with a high-temp ceramic coating at a local shop. Before the coating went on I had a buddy weld on a V-band in preparation for the full exhaust to be built in the future. Good news is my engine is actually going to be dynoe...
I also found that the tranny mount (280zx) made mt KA tranny sit lower than I wanted. Have the chevy poly mount that you are using on the shelf but really don't want the extra NVH. How are you finding your mount is in terms of vibration and/or noise?

I wired mine up correctly and it still wasn't very accurate and would jump around a lot. Had West Valley Instruments rebuilt it and part of the process was for them to modify it so that it picked up the signal with a single wire to the negative side of the coil. Very easy install and it works just f...
Can't find the original pictures of the heater pre-refurbishment but needless to say it didn't look that great. A ton of leaves had been trapped inside the heater and every time I would turn it on broken pieces of leaves would come out. It had been 3 years and I was still getting leaves! Pulled ever...
Helpful information so thanks for replying! Good to know that you had similar issues while the thinner bushing was on top. Makes me confident that switching them will help resolve some vibration.
So not much progress on my car. Waiting on Rebello to engine dyno the 2360cc motor as the actual engine is done, just waiting for dyno time. Also working with Stance on a custom coilover setup and finding it challenging to get the proper parts shipped over from Japan. Hopefully, in a couple of weeks...

I have one as well. Just the manifold though but in nice condition.
Let me know if you get any vibration upon acceleration after the install of those bushings. I have the same ones and put the narrower one on top like you and after many measurements of my driveline angle came to realize that I need to swap them and put the thicker one on top which should get my angl...

Somewhat on topic here but does anyone know where I can find a good walkthrough on how to R&R an engine from the bottom like Michael did here?
