With all of the different conversions that people are doing to their Zed cars, I thought that I would post a couple of pictures of a work in progress at the moment. A bit unconventional and different.
I have removed the L26 from my 260Z and replaced it with an L28 that I had in a 280zx. The engine had been rebuilt by the previous owner some years ago and had been only been used for a short time before storing the car. I bought it with the intension of putting it back on the road, but as usual with projects I got side-lined with other things. So eventually it got fitted to the 260z. It had flat top pistons but had a P90 head. It ran really well with the original EFI with good economy but not a lot of get up and go. I sold the P90 head to a club member and to up the compression ratio I rebuilt a N42 head that I had spare. New 72 degree cam, rockers , springs and lash pads, that I had purchased from Stewart Wilkins a few years earlier. I had also been redoing some of the electrics adding fuse blocks and relays.
Anyway I purchase a FiTech 40003 4 barrel throttle body from America to go with the Arizona Z 4 barrel inlet manifold that I already had. Since I didn't want to modify the fuel tank for efi I also purchase the FiTech Fuel Command Centre from a company in NSW. The original low pressure fuel pump supplies full to the FCC ( in the engine bay) and then the internal high pressure pump supplies the throttle body at 58psi. This reservoir holds about 1.5 litres. Because the throttle body is a non return fuel line system, I used the original fuel return line to the tank for the FCC vent line. The FCC must be vented. ( This is a mandatory requirement for safety as stated by FiTech ). I have been working on this in my spare time and is a work in progress. I snapped these pictures today, but due to work commitments and a wedding in NSW next weekend it will be at least 3 weeks before I get to touch the car again. I will post a video for those interested when I have got it finished. Costs so far were about $1400 for the FiTech 40003 throttle body delivered from USA and about $750 for the Fuel command Centre from NSW. I already had the Arizona Z manifold.
