Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

Yeah... I had to redrill offset holes for the transmission mount, extend by about 10mm the 4 slots and use 12mm of shims to get it right with the T3 crossmember. I'm a bit disappointed, it doesn't look clean at all.

Now I want to try this.
I've been trying to get the transmission and motor mount right since june, I know the feeling! :wink:

Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

Progress is pretty slow, but it's moving forward! Since I got my OEM 510 mounts and want to use them insted of the chinese crap. I decided to try using spacers as Pista_510 suggested. I estimated 1/2" on both sides would bring the brackets to the correct crossmember width. I just installed them toda...

That looks very good, I love the color. What brakes are you going to use with that 1" bmc?

i've heard people using camaro's but not sure what year?
KYB 743019 AGX for the 82-02 Camaro is adjustable and works.

By the looks of it, the T3 coilovers are also built around this shock absorber.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: Adjustable Rear Spring Perch

I have 250lbs 8" x 2.5"ID Eibach in the front and for the rear I bought a 500lbs 18" x 3"ID Eibach truck spring that I cut in half, so ~1000lbs 9" springs. I will need to buy weight jack kit because it sits too low for me.

Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

There are 4 different height 620 mounts. I would keep the motor as high as possible. It helps for ground clearance and allows the drag link to work. Back when me and Frank did those swaps with the stock steering we would also loosen the steering box and idler arm, one of us would pull the drag link...

Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

Ok! I tried 6mm on both sides... It's better but not enough . I don't have long enough bolts to try any thicker right now. Next week I'll be back to work and have access to longer ones. I think I'll try 12mm on both sides.

Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

What part number is that energy suspension trans mount bushing? 1036 comes up with nothing on their site. 31108G It's a GM mount. Gab from T3 recommended it to me with his transmission crossmember. Having done this swap a number of times in the past, I have found that if you use the factory SR20 en...

Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

Looks like a nice project. When I cut the tranny tunnel for my KA box, I did it nice and tight like yours, I ultimately had to open it up more due to an awful vibration it made against the tunnel at low rpms. I initially cut the minimum I could to get the transmission in place as shown in the pictu...

I love the 350z, I would chose it over the 370z anytime. Have fun with it!

As you said, I think it's a critical detail if I want it to run smoothly. Here are some pictures to illustrate my issue. Rockauto 510 mounts VS OEM mounts https://i.imgur.com/jQcB3oW.jpg Transmission position. I'll adjust it and make a shim when I get the right motor mounts, but I think it should be...

Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

Non the less.. You are doing a great job! seems you kinda got the most sought parts already. Thanks, I'm doing my best and learning along the way. It turns out my motor is not sitting where I need it to be. The valve cover is pretty damn close to hitting the hood and so is the front velocity stack....
