Re: RE: 5 spd. tight fit

Well, I got it in...trouble is, it was from an 82 200SX NOT a 280 ZX. Whole thing is tilted about 20 deg. to the passenger side. What a downer. A race on Friday at California Speedway, and no 5 spd.. I am putting the feelers out locally to try and find one quick, but betweeen that, shortening the d...

It's spliced into the rear line, preferably where you can adjust while driving? Perfect for off/on road, wet/dry, mud/sand.
Where would I go to get one? Safety more important than legality. Are they legal?
What would the cost be for one?

Ok so the best visual way to make it functional without buy a 70 dollar section of bent pipe would be to slip a little breather filter in the hole in the block and then hook the PCV up to the valve cover. Would work great and look good...........and put seventy bucks into some other part of the car...

Sounds like all these things in combination. There's probably enough blow by to pick up oil from the spray bar and push it out the valve cover vent. Would the spray bar deliver a litre of oil to the cam in the time it takes to row through the gears? I assume you have baffles in the oil pan, do you a...

Byron, I don't quite understand what you are saying. The stock PCV valve runs to this pipe. So are you saying you can plug this one and not the one off the valve cover. Or the other way around. It seems that it would be ok to plug it and run the valve cover to the PCV. Look at all modern cars that ...

Wasen't sure if it was for the same reason we did when drag racing. Mostly to put much needed weight over the non LSD drive wheel. lol Much more expensive than filling the spare with sand though. LOL! Actually, my truck would benifit from this. Its very top heavy, AND, light to the rear. Moving 50 l...

Positive Crankcase Ventilation

You could pull the tube out of your L16 and knock it into the L18 block with a dead-blow mallet? Or as ajen68510 said, put a freeze plug into the hole and call it a day... Is this ok to do? Plug the crankcase breather? My L20B is missing the vertical pipe..I capped mine after reading this, but Im w...

I mean, what is a battery relocation kit!!! You need battery cable, a ground cable, and a marine battery box if you wish to enclose it, and a battery bolt down kit. You may need some zap straps to clips to hold cable in place, depending on where you mount it. So what is a battery kit? Every car wou...

You've nothing to loose by trying it, but completely rebuild afterward, as internal brake parts and petroleum products do not mix. They also have a drastically lower boiling point.

jbush, sounds like a wet dream cum true! Although a bit pricy for me, if the milage is true and body good, you may save some time and expence in the long run. Check under floor mats for rust (holes). Look at the frame starting under the cab and back, especially the inside verticle face (the one you ...

RE: 200 sx rims for sale

I'm not a fan of big, ugly, garishly chromed, bling bling (hate that term) rims. There's nothing that ruins the look of a fine auto, than a gawd-awful set of rims that in no way compliment the car, but in many cases, only displays the owner's very bad taste or judgement. The car pictured above is a ...
