micks turbo 240z project

Recommended Posts

  Hi all

As the title says

rbz260 has been talking about this site a bit so I thought I would come check it out.

About what I have

I am building a 1973 240z which is currently upside down on a rotisserie in my shed

I am keeping it l series but it will be injected and turboed.

I have already collected some goodies such as p90 turbo head and turbo exhaust manifold,

some wilwood 4 piston callipers and rotors, some low king springs. I have had the dash recovered through rear spares. So far the project is young but I will keep you all posted on my progress.

I also have a z31 California that I will be doing some work to in the feature

Here are a few pics for you all

Looks like a good project. 240 looked pretty good in the first pic to start with, so it should come off pretty awsome with your plans.

I like the Z31 wide body.

Has less wedge shape, and are the guards pumped out on them?

yes the z31 California has wider Gard's than the earlier z31 an much smother lines.

My 240z was fairly neat on the out side but the interia was rough as guts, I am changing the paint colour to wr blue

Done by next cruise ha ha ha!!!  I thought I was going to have it done by next mb auto fest.

I did manage to get my front struts painted up last week; The last meet gave me a bit of inspiration.

Yes I think us south ozzys must be too lazy or sit home and smoke to much weed or something

I do still need a driver’s side door trim in the near feature I am not quite ready for it yet though

I finaly got a chance to do a bit more on the zed last week.

I have started to clean and paint up the suspension.

One question? do i have the spring in the cradle the right way around in this picture?

I got the package for $1300 and that was for,

 

2 pair of front rotors

1 pair of rotor hats

1 pair of 260z hubs (for the offset)

1 pair of wilwood calipers

1 pair of adaptor brackets

assorted nuts and bolts for fitments.

Considering the price of brembos this is very affordable

I am not sure where they came from.

Chriss fergesson brought them over for me. He also had a few sets of real nice light waight adjustable trailing arms he was tempting me with, but i controled my self and left them with him.

after all my 240 is going to be a road car not a race car.

I visited Melbourne on the week end to pick up my new motor

thanks to john  ;)

Its a l20et, I will be running this as stock in the 240z while i am building up the l28et

then it will more than likely end up in the 260z 2 seater. 

I would also like to thank Jane for showing me around Melbourne. I would have been lost with out her  ;D

Zed I may have a spare.................

 

And they didnt tell the hole story, Mick must have a need for speed and a sense of direction based on lingering hi-octane fumes, they were supposed to take the turn off on the Calder at keilor Melton road but kept going till they reached the BP station at Calder Park raceway.

 

I get a call saying we are at the BP on the Calder and are just sorting out our directions, so I jump in the car to meet them there, its a wonder they didnt get a hankering to try out old Bob's track while they waited for me.

 

Luckily I guess Mick was in an old LPG Triton, if it was one of the Zed's I doubt he waould have passed up the opportunity.

sorry lurch it was a rushed trip and i was only in my crappy triton

if it was this weekend i would have come to the jag club meet

 

Jane i would have been OK if my gps didn't go flat My brain wasn't working to good after 9 hours of driving lol

 

zedman I do have an extra one of these dizzys but i think i might be greedy and keep it just incase i decide to run the l20et in the 260z down the track
