Just finished having this event for the first time over the weekend and it was a great success! We had almost 70 cars show up during a 100+ degree heat wave. Here is a link to an album with some of our favorite pictures included. https://imgur.com/a/eTts1iU https://i.imgur.com/lug0K4V.jpg https://i....

I don't know what motor you are running but most L-series below 150hp are fine with a 2" exhaust. Pair that with as long of a resonator that you can find and a Walker Quiet-Flow muffler and you should be happy.

Probably $250-400 for 40s and $400 to $600 for 44s all depending on condition.
It's a Datsport cross member so has their brackets on it. They recommend Whiteline bushings and the bushings have the steel inner tube for sure. Will try the C-clamp idea on the other side. Just used my fingers on the side that is in. Plus to Whiteline is that they are self-lubricating bushings. I d...
Yeah they were very very tight. Got one side in so tomorrow will go after the other side. Not much wisdom to pass on here...going to use even more lube on the other sides. That and a jack and a big rubber mallet was what I used. Tired now!
Okay newbie when it comes to the rear suspension and have decided to take on the challenge of doing a new CV kit install along with new control arm bushings and R31 rear brakes. Got out the control arms and put in new Whiteline poly bushings. Went to put them back and WOW is everything super tight. ...
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...
