280zx hail from Malaysia

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am from Malaysia and I am currently having a S130 project ongoing. Most of the parts are not stock anymore as I am working towards Shakotan styled Z car. Currently it's having a heart transplant from a L20 to a RB20DET with Haltech management. It's been 6 months now and it's getting on my nerves due to various wiring issues. Will keep posting it for updates. Please enjoy the pictures. :D

Welcome, that's certainly a unique 280zx not seen 1 like that before. The flat black paint is great.

Hi Pauly.. the front I got is special made. Friend of mine owns a body work garage. I can try to ask him where or which model of cars he got it from and I will let you know.

Welcome  ;)

You joining and posting is good timing for me.

I've been toying with the idea of a racing stripe for some time, but its always good to see a real example.

Thanks all for the compliment. Glad you guys enjoyed it. Not many people do coz they prefer it to be as original stock as possible but I am more into the wild side. hahahahaha

Are you really putting a NICS RB20 into your car? That's probably why you are having wiring problems! :P

 

Yes I am Agno. What seems to be the issue? Currently my car won't start and when it starts, it will not idle properly. It's like having a bad case of flu. I am getting my mech to change all the wiring into new sets.

My brother's car used to have a NICS RB20DE and had similar issues. Common problems with these motors are CAS (crank angle sensor), ignitor (little black box on your valley cover) and coil packs, all of which are unique to NICS RB20s and cannot be substituted for later model parts from newer Skylines. Is the car getting ample fuel and spark? If you are having ignition problems check your CAS first and make sure everything lines up on the belts (cams, pulleys etc).

 

If you had unlimited amounts of time and money I would recommend finding a silvertop (R32 Skyline onwards) RB and adapting your wiring to suit, failing that you might have to go on the hunt for a few spares for your engine. There is very little aftermarket support for NICS parts (which we could find anyway) so we could only make do with sourcing second hand parts and hoping they worked.

 

Edit: Just re-read that you are running a Haltech, I'm not 100% sure what stock sensors you are using with this ECU but most of what I already said applies, especially the comments about the CAS, you might be able to retrofit some more modern coilpacks with inbuilt ignitors but I'm not sure.

Thanks for the heads up Agno. I will keep everyone posted for any updates. Can't wait for it to start running. 7 months already... sheeeesh!!

looks great, like the panelwork, what front spoiler did you use ?

 

thanks imackz. I asked my bodywork guys and he told me it's a limited edition 350z front. I can't really find it in google but hey... it looks cool and i am with it. hahahaha.
