Peter Mac's 260Z Race Car
Posted 26 September 2010 - 08:28 PM
But it didn't stay that way for very long...
It started off with a warmish L26 with about 150hp which was 'OK' for a while.
Then Peter got a bit excited – an FJ20et race engine with a T66 turbo (+nitrous) was fitted produce around 650hp at the tires, which eventually ran 9.9 @139MPH at Calder..
This had the effect of slightly modifying the chassis alignment – which can kinda happen with stock S30 shells...
Next the circuit bug took over & Peter decided that the Zed was going to better suited to going round some of Australia best circuits as a proper race car.
Cue a massive rebuild over the next few years, culminating in the beast you see here.

Cars like this seem to take so much time and effort but they give back a hell of allot of fun and good times.
ps. Big thanx to Lurch for coming down and helping me finally put this together.

How much power are you expecting to get out of the old L28? It's good to see you went the L28 route. We should definitely get the write up on the homepage once you get this thing fully assembled.

I have a big oil cooler for the power steering that fits beside the intercooler to help with the overheating oil.
I have put the same cooler on most of our comp cars with good results.
For what events i will be in i hope to be chasing all my friends around at sprint meetings and some hill climbs.
Eventually i will modify it to comply with sports cars closed.

Looks like it exits near the battery tray in the first picture, but then cannot see it in the next photo showing a larger area of the front wheel well.
Does it reconnect to the exhaust pipe or does it just dump into the wheel well.
Can see it in this photo
But not this one
