A 4:3 r200 won't be a bit short in the legs for an Lseries will it?  They don't rev quite as well as the rb.

Should be fine mick exactly that they are a bit lazy and add a bigger turbo shorter diff should aid in quicker boost response.
Dont forget rb20 have less torque hence the need of shorter diff. Though L28 have more but are also slower and laggy with big turbo. We see i think should be fine. Even if i have to change the ratio it will still work out cheaper than chasing a 3.9 or 4.11 actual lsd diff. Got this at realy good price.

You're in luck with the 4 bolt shafts; I have a spare pair. You may have to change the rear part that sits behind the diff where the rear arms pivot bolt to. From memory the R180 is straight, and the R200 has a curve in it.

Hey just thought if you want me to pick up 'the pile' and bring it back to Adel I could probably do that pretty easily... ? Might save both you guys the hassle of postage. Unless the pile is literally a big pile of bits...


This car will be so tough. Still aiming to be finished for end of March?

Hi Ryan cheers for the offer. Most stuff is fairly small. Though biggest part is the rear hatch. So if you could fit that than be awesome if u could bring it down.

Not sure been almost two weeks since i touched the car busy cleaning up workshop and making a shed to store some parts and tools.

Though after this weekend it be 100% work on it. So i try my best but possibly end of april start of may im hoping.

You will need to use 260z mustache bar as the diff bolts wont fit a 240z mustache bar unless you slot the holes out. And yes 260's is beefier. Also you will need to use 260z half shafts. As diff is slightly offset to one side. 240z ones will fit but will eventually bind up. Some people will say 240z and 260z shafts are the same but I've done the measurements when i went from r180 to r200. One shaft is slightly longer than the other. Only by a few mm though.

Thanks Retro,

not using stock half shafts dont think they last with my choice of engine. got some CV's from a R31 turbo jdm model.
though in search for the r200 mustachy and those other bits. i had 2 sets lying around and threw them out so freaking pissed.

NOTE: never listen to your mother/wife/anyone who tell you that you don't need that part.  As soon as you listen few weeks after it be "FOR #@&* sake !*(*@#@ I had it" why did i listen.

ok shoping from japan has ended. items are on their way.

Still no progress as of now. still sorting out my workshop and preparing the other z for pick up.

soon next weekend should be some progress.

I got my Gnose from them and the type A spoiler as well, quality and fitment is really good, but you will have to drill mounting holes and fit the fixings you require.

I have a few pics from test fitting straight after it arrived. Will post up later.

Benny thanks for the video.

also this one from rocky auto is nice. wouldn't do the NA Rb30/26 if going RB route just install the whole thing. but as article said he was making a balanced car. Though some things i wasn't planing to do on mine but after this article kinda have changed my mind.

http://www.speedhunt...cy-auto-rb30-z/


Alex the kit I saw was second hand but apparently seller said genuine 5 pce kit with metal brake ducts diverters, brackets etc..
it was approx $750 Plus handling fees and 2x postage using Jesse. it would have cost probably landed around 1-1.2K or so pending exchange rates and 6-9 week wait for shipping via sea. otherwise air mail is too exy.
Edit cannot be posted via EMS only container and long long delivery times.

Otomoto appears to have good ones made in japan at $1150+ph with all the brackets.so be looking at that one.

Ok bit of an update actualy more of show off the goodies recieved from aus post santa.

Got the l28 turbo valve cover ex USA not bad on my l28 turbo mock up.

Posted Image

On order is non webbed intake with larger TB and l28ET exhaust manifold.
After i missed modified naps manifold with 70mm single TB by 0.50c sucked

To run the show got v4 wolf rd ecu.

Posted Image

Todays santa delivered me this ex japan l series adjustable cam sprocket. Not sure if needed but sounds cool  ::)
Posted Image

Also in the same package got few other goodies.
Posted Image

Some genuine weather strip kits
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Some second hand gear
Posted Image

Now you prob ask why did i buy that from japan besides the antenna the rest was $30 without postage.
Not bad $12 for manual pedal box lol.

Best for last

Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Stick out a fair bit

Posted Image

Add some flares and perfect. Was worried that need wider flares for the wheels.
Posted Image

Wheels are front 15x8.5 and 15x9.5 not 10 as i thought. Luckily
They did come of a 240zg so perfect fitment.

Plug for Jesse Streeter. He is absolutely awesome. Top notch service and absolute legend. For people that have or think they have issues with Jesse need to stop take deep breath and f relax.

I had no pressure on him besides throwing 20+ links a day for last 5 weeks.

Items well packed and helps out in every aspect to save you coin. Btw hes heaps busy at the moment but when ready highly recomend him.

Also ordered the 5 pce g nose kit from otomoto. Cant wait for that too. Also 10/10 so far for communications from Ben.


Other work nothing much. Busy wrecking my s15 to make more room and clean my workshop.

Besides shopping for things still i did manage to sqeeze in. Few hours making the 240z body trolley so it can be mounted on it without any suspension and still be movable.

Stoll to attach the castor wheels and mounting brackets and paint.

Just made it out of scrap i had lying around which wasnt much.

Posted Image

Hopefully tonight finish that. Than sand blast the rest of the var on weekend.

Got few more goodies from japan and us.

Just a pic of few

I was about to say US tail lights were an odd choice for a Z-G replica. Where did you get those flares from?

Yep so as l28et, disk brakes, intercooler,power steer, etc...... Still want it to be my car. So few personal touches will be on it.

Yeah like the US ones makes the rear little but cleaner with one less color.
