now what i would do ... is put the cossie engine into the zed.  :o  yeh.  ;D the zed is probably lighter than the merkur( sierra over here ? ) so your power to weight would be suhweet.


I have considered putting a cosworth engine in the 260Z but not too sure how much work would be involved and the parts. My brothers Datsun 510 is already getting the cosworth in it.
Anybody have a link for a good discussion on dropping a SR20DET into a 240Z/260Z/280Z. I might be only months away from dropping an SR20DET into my Z.

I have been to hybridz. I've only seen one person in the "Member Project" section thats going with the SR20DEt. I haven't messaged him yet but I will be soon. We are currently working on a temporary paint job. I saw a thread here which lead me to another forum on how to paint a car with a Roller  :o  :o 
Guess what?? We did it, this morning was the final 6th coat. I have some pictures of it during the process which I will post in the Paint section soon. I might be private messaging you about some questions regarding the cross member if you don't mind.  :)
Here are a few more pictures, I promise I won't post anymore. haha I think you guys have seen enough of her.

I was reading an article the other day about the story of Datsun 240/260/280. It mentioned that the 260Z had an optional Power Steering ???
It mentions it towards the end of the article when they are talking about the 260Z.

Is that true. Has anybody actually attempted to put in "Power steering" into a car that did not have it? I've seen a few old Chevy trucks with that modification.
