I had never considered a 253 for my zed.....until I read this post. Now I must have one. You guys have sold me on the idea. Who says the 253 doesn't produce much power. All it needs is a boiler to capture all the power from the steam and hot air produced from this thread.  ::)

I do agree the advice given in the thread was accurate and appropriate. However I think the tone was a bit over the top in places. My manager provides feedback with this sort of tone hence why I am moving to another job.

one thing to consider is the sump. what do they do with chev conversions? there are 3 factory sumps for the holden motor. the front hump on commodores, the rear hump on HQ-WB, and the pre-HQ had a centre hump. so plan accordingly.


i went and did a little research on power too. it is a bit difficult to compare accurately, due to some ratings being gross and some net etc, but it is plain to see that 253 has as much power as the L28 and considerably more torque at lower rpm.



MQ Patrol 80-87 L28 (from my service manual, single carb)
Power: 118 Hp (88 kW) at 4800rpm (DIN)
Torque: 147 lb-ft (200 Nm) @ 3200rpm (DIN)

Net HP Gross HP
240Z 121 151
260Z 130 162
280Z 75-78 136 170
280ZX NA 79-83 145 182
(from wikipedia 280zx page)


HQ 71-74 253
Power: 185bhp (138kw) at 4400rpm
Torque: 262lb-ft (355Nm) at 2400rpm

HZ 77-80 253
Power: 161bhp (120kw) at 4550rpm
Torque: 240lb-ft (325Nm) at 2600rpm

VH 81-84 253
Power: 100kw at 4200rpm (115kw at 4400rpm when dual exhaust fitted)
Torque: 269Nm at 2000rpm (289Nm at 3200 when dual exhaust fitted)
(all from uniquecarsandparts.com.au)

If and when you do get it running, just be carefull your flanelette shirt does't get caught in the fanbelt... Might be better off with a VN crummydore for a burnout car..cheap and plentifull...

what eva guys thanks for the help and advice yes i was a bit rude but i didn't like some of the shit pple write. i know what the l28 motor goes like as I've had another 260z in the past but i sold it as it was a rust bucket witch i sadly regret. I have always wonted a nice standout burnout car and i cum across this 260z with no motor and it cant be resisted and I've got a old 253 sitting there so i thought i would put that in there for a burnout car. Theres Heep's more i would like to to to it like an Rb25 for a track or drift car but i just cant afford it as I'm a young guy with a family house so just cant afford it. i would like so help with couple of things.
sorry for my nasty comments if could start of fresh again would be great
thanks

OK the linkage on all auto like that can be lengthened .. mount the shifter where it feels right for you and make a rod that extends the original linkage,,, remember if it gets in the way move it ... that's the way to make it happen .....what i mean is if you have to cut or weld just do it ,,,,,, the linkage can be as long as you need it. just make it longer it wont Chang the way it works

these shifters work well on the trimatic, but you need an extra bracket to suit (~$20 they charge). they have a long cable that does the shifting, so you can put the shifter whereever you want. and being ratchet style, it is good for burnouts :)
