The photo in the gallery is just a reference to compare the differences between the R180 moustache bar (as used in the 240Z) and the R200 moustache bar from the 280Z (I think). I haven't posted a photo of the one my son & I fabricated for the 510 since it is already bolted up in the car. It is a bit...

Hey Derek, Nice to hear from you - I know your Dad very well. We used to compete against each other in Ontario Regional auto slaloms (now called Solo II's) in the '70's. Glad to hear from you back here in the "Rally Capital" of Canada. Drop over some time when your back home and I show you the proje...

A "daughterboard" is an EEPROM carrier that can be plugged into a socket that exists inside the ECU (Engine Control Unit) that is used in the Nissan EFI cars. This allows you to program different fuel maps externally on a PC and then "download" your altered maps to an EEPROM using a commercially ava...

Just saw this post. I've done this conversion on my 1973 PL510 4-door. I can send you pics if you want to see how it looks. Used the R200 clutch-type LSD from the 1988-89 300ZX Turbo (Z31) as well as the real beefy CV shafts that were used in these cars. I have heard this setup is good up to about 5...

The R200 VLSD in the 240SX won't work in the PL510. It is called the "short-nose" version of the R200 and is not long enough to bolt up to the rear subframe to get the axle-shafts back far enough (unless you do some extensive modification of course). A "bolt-in" solution and better choice is the R20...

Just a silly question but why would you use the VSLD for any type of motorsport work? I have spoken with a couple of local Solo competitors here and the VSLD's are not recommended. When the fluid in them gets hot, they lock up solid. The VSLD's are generally ideal for street applications only. If yo...

Here's some suggestions on what worked for me - it took TONS of time and trial & error but the work was worth it. I don't mind sharing this, PM me if you need any help or Nissan P/N's. It will probably also work with the Sylvia stuff (depends on if your using the S13 4 or S14 5 bolt versions). I hav...
