  3. The gearbox felt solid, only complaint I had was the position of the gear lever felt off centre (down and to the left) and so felt a bit weird to operate compared to a regular L-engine gearbox. Not sure if the lever is bent or it's just the way it sits in the car. But made it kind of difficult to know what gear I was in and moving to. I recall in the 90s everyone was using the Supra gearboxes in engine swaps since they were meant to be a strong box. My guess is that it's an MA70 Supra box (R154). It's actually W58 confirmed below (they look very similar).
  4. Don't worry, we have plenty of space, stored on Amazon Cloud, so it's not previously when I had to increase disk space on the server, Amazon scales well and cost is very modest.
  5. The first rule of Viczcar Club is... No wait wrong film.
  6. Best part is, being a late 260z the engine number is not on the ID plate in the engine bay. It just says type "L26" so you could swap an L-series back in and it would be "original" again. But the V8 is kind of fun, if you plan to tow a small boat in future.
  7. Yeah I was joking more than serious. Carry on.
  8. Every time I see another project thread, I think I'm gonna need a bigger server to handle all the inbound images.
  9. Gearbox ratios. https://web.archive.org/web/20041210214850/http://www.geocities.com/zgarage2001/ratios.gif Common Problems https://web.archive.org/web/20010803190743/http://www.geocities.com/zgarage2001/zprobs.html Engine heads https://web.archive.org/web/20011206114942/http://geocities.com/zgarage2001/heads.html Engine building https://web.archive.org/web/20011207170604/http://geocities.com/zgarage2001/rebuild.html Maybe? Not sure haven't really tested the archive.org site on Mobile much. Perhaps I should try and turn the site into a PDF file for future archiving purposes?
  10. A grind was used in a 240z, C grind was more for the 260c sedan's etc.. but honestly it makes little difference. Maybe get a regrind?
  11. Is it definitely weak spark? How is compression? Getting fuel ok? It's fuel injected right?
  12. https://www.instagram.com/reel/CWpNHpTl4-0/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= This is a new recast L6 head that will apparently flow really well and address some of the original head design flaws, in terms of combustion chamber shape, coolant gallery flow and port design. Price is about $6-7k I believe but you'd spend that + more on porting and prepping an old head anyway. I believe it's run an 11 second 1/4 mile on its first outing.
  13. I've split this thread. For the discussion on values of modified vs original, refer to new thread.
  14. Hi guys, I've split these posts into a new topic to keep the for sale thread, a for sale thread. Otherwise feel free to continue. FWIW, I found the RB26 feels very similar to the L-series motor in terms of being a straight 6 and the overall sound/feel. So I think it's a good swap option. I personally think an RB25NEO (w/26 covers let's be honest 25 covers look crap), and a high flow OP6 turbo and Nistune ECU would be really a really economical option that would easily make 350-400hp and in a Z would be plenty fast. If there is 1 thing I think is required in a an S30Z these days it's aircon and most 240z's didn't come equipped with that originally (some home market cars had it) but many are later dealer options, but I want to drive my classic and be comfortable too. With the way our summers are these days I think although aircon adds to the clutter of an engine bay it's worth having.
