  2. Yes mate... it's still available...
  3. I paid 7k for a fully rebuilt RB26, packed full of forged goodies. Never stared since rebuild. It didn't have turbos though....so i sourced them separately wreckers etc are wanting 4-5k for used & thrashed 26's, and having had the 26 in my R33 GTR rebuilt some years ago with forged parts, I know what it CAN cost, so this was a bargain.
  4. Hi All, I have always wanted am RB26DETT in my Z....It currently has an RB25DET Engine and Gearbox from a S2 R33. A bargain RB26DETT came up, so I bought it, and now I will be selling my Current setup as a near-complete Package. So, I am am looking for Expressions of Interest. Essentially, you will get a 90% complete drop-in package. All you will need will be and engine management system, Exhaust from dump-pipe backwards, Radiator and intercooler. I am also open to discussing adding these items in with the sale (even though i need them) WHAT YOU WILL GET RB25DET Engine (S2 R33 GTST) c/w Alternator & A/C Compressor Genuine Nissan Rear Bowl Sump Custom Oil Pickup c/w GTR Intake Nissan RB25 5 Speed Gearbox Clutch, Flywheel & Backing Plate Custom Intercooler Pipework Dump Pipe Exhaust Section - Stainless 3" RIPS Racing Custom Inlet Manifold RIPS Racing Custom Throttle Body Fuel Rail Adapter Ceramic Coated Manifold & Heatshields Turbosmart BOV Turbosmart Fuel Pressure Regulator Throttle Cable K&N Air Filter K&N Valve Cover Breather Dipstick Moved to Rear of Block Carbon Fibre Look Cam Cover & Plug Cover Silicon Top & Bottom Radiator Hoses Temp Sensor to Suit 260Z Temp Gauge Custom Engine & Gearbox Mounts Correct Gearbox Speedo Sender for 260Z In Addition..youll get Original RB25DET Front Bowl Sump & Pickup Original RB25DET Pwr Str Pump WHAT YOU WONT GET (but Im open to Negotiations !) Engine Management System & Sensors Custom PWR Intercooler Custom PWR Radiator Thermo Fan Full 3" Stainless Exhaust Fuel Pump(s) / Fuel System I have never chased a lot or power...its a cruiser for me - this engine is producing an easy, reliable 270HP ATW....but we all know what they are capable of. So, if you are contemplating a conversion, then think about this....everything is done....you wont be having to work out how to get the speedo working accurately, how to get the Temp gauge working accurately etc....Its all done for you ! Im happy to answer any questions, or take people for drives - Engine is still in the car and its a joy to drive - I have around a 6 to 8 month conversion plan, but thats open depending on how the RB25 Sale goes.....everything is up for discussion ! A quick costing on every comes in at around about $11k (what I paid 7 years ago)....those prices would undoubtedly be more now. I'm looking for $8k. When you break it down thats actually pretty good ! I Look forward to Hearing from you !
  5. UPDATE : The Prototype Kit (with the MC4 Handbrake Calipers) has been sold The Pot Caliper Kit is still available....
  6. Hey Mate...well, yes and no.....The new MC4 is not an all-in-one caliper...you still need your main caliper for braking. It is simply a much better, stronger designed Handbrake-only caliper. Essentially. Hope this helps. Cheers WG
  7. Hi All, I have for sale a complete set of my AZC Kit (1st Design)......2 Spot Calipers, 2 brackets, and handbrake cable. All yours for $150. Its used obviously. I have also redesigned the setup using Wilwoods New MC4 Caliper. I have just done a production round of those as well...no interest from this forum, but sold plenty to the USA, Canada & Germany recently. I have for sale, the prototype kit ...which includes 2 MC4 calipers, custom Handbrake cable & 2 brackets. yours for $300. Being the prototype, there a few mods i had to do to test the system out, but they are minor and arent noticeable..happy to explain if anyone is interested. Note...you'll pay around $300 alone just for the calipers ! Im happy to do another full batch run, but will need around 8-10 peeps. Cheers Woza

  9. Hey fellow Aussie Z Owners I have previously developed, and sold kits to add a handbrake to the AZC kit, however due to limitations with the Spot Caliper, it was only partially successful. Wilwood have now released a much improved Mechanical Caliper, and I am offering a kit to allow you to easily add a strong, reliable handbrake to your car (if it has the AZC Kit !) So..I am ready now to start accepting deposits for your kits. * The Full Kit comprises of 2 Brackets (LH & RH), New Handbrake Cable, 2 e-clips, and 2 Brake Hose Retainers. * The Half Kit comprises of 2 Brackets (LH & RH), 2 Brake Hose Retainers. * Full Kit price is AUD$555 + Paypal fee of 2.6%. Total of AUD$560 (postage excluded) * Half Kit price is AUD$320 + Paypal fee of 2.6%. Total of AUD$323 (postage excluded) NOTE : The Kits DO NOT include the Wilwood MC4 Calipers Postage can only be confirmed once i have a set available to package and take to the post office, The brackets are made from 12mm Mild Steel plate, and the postage is calculated on weight....nothing i can do about this unfortunately. So....here's is how i intend on working it... I'm sure you all can appreciate that I cant take a hit by going ahead and getting all the plates and cables done, and then finding some people who ordered have changed their minds. So, i will do it exactly the same way as i did the last time. I will require a AUD$250 deposit, paid into my Paypal account. This will secure your set. Once the kits are ready, and I have confirmed shipping prices, you can pay the Balance, along with the shipping cost, and the brackets will be shipped to you. I appreciate some people may be uncomfortable with this, however it is designed to protect me from being left with merchandise. Feel free to read through the entire blog on the link below (hybridz), or here on AusZCar and you will see that I am trustworthy and true to my word. You will receive what you pay for, and, for piece of mind, all funds will remain in the Paypal account until the packages have been sent. http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/71799-wilwood-rear-handbrake-e-brake-kits/ I have been in touch with both the machinists, and the cable manufacturers, and due to their work loads, production can only start as of 13th March. Kits will be ready approximately 2 weeks after that. So, this allows for plenty of time to build up the 10 orders required, and more if it so happens ! NOTE : Please do not wait till the last minute to place your order - the sooner you place your order, the sooner the '10 set' goal will be reached. From experience, last time, people were reluctant to put their money down, and it spooked others into the same frame of mind. So Rest Easy.... I will keep you fully updated as to the progress of the count. IN SUMMARY..... - 1st Payment of AUD $250 Confirms your order. - 2nd Payment (Balance of Kit + Postage) will be due when Kit is ready for posting - You will be advised of postage price before this time. Once you have paid your deposit, please PM me, with your FULL NAME, email address, and postage address. I will need these to get postage prices when the time comes. My Paypal account is kwgilbert71@gmail.com PS. If for some reason we cant proceed BEFORE manufacture...you will get your money back. Rest Easy ! I'm Happy to answer any questions. Cheers Warren THE FINE PRINT - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY ! * If for some reason we cant proceed BEFORE manufacture...you will get your money back. Rest Easy ! * This kit is designed to work with the existing rear AZC Kit. The seller makes no assumptions that it will fit with any other manufacturers kits. * A small modification (detailed above) may be required to your car. * If you change your mind AFTER production has started, your deposit may be forfeited. Please be 100% sure when ordering. * This kit is designed for Off-Road Use only. By fitting this kit you acknowledge all terms, and absolve the seller of all liability if something goes wrong.

    Rear Brakes

    Good Idea Charlie Boy - I have posted a thread in the Brake Forums ! At this stage no.....I dont have any pics yet of the cable in position. I still need to get the additional cable mounts laser cut, bent & welded. Ive got most of the hardware that Im going to use for the cable, but need the mounts done before I can proceed.

    Rear Brakes

    Ill do my best....total bummer that this whole work thing gets in the way of the things that i would like to do haha. I also have a problem ....I have no wheels, so even when I do get the cable sorted, I cant go for a test drive, and Ill be very reluctant to produce any more untill I know they work well - The last thing I want is a lynch mob ! haha

    Rear Brakes

    Yep, I bought the kits and did it all myself. Its a lot cheaper that way. I assume that if you did Buy the whole assembly, you would be given the option of 240Z or 260Z Struts. I guess you'd need to confirm that before ordering though. Personally, I see no point in paying all that extra just for cutting a strut tube and welding a sleeve on ! haha :shock:

    Rear Brakes

    Yeah...Dave at AZC isn't interested at all about the H/Brake setup side of things - Have you read the FAQ on his website ?...makes for some funny reading :lol: !

    Rear Brakes

    Once Ive got the handbrake cable sorted out, and I know its all good, then yes, I will be happy to do a group order. Individually (1 set at a time) arent cheap....like anything its cheaper the more you get done. So I guess it depends on interest. You are the 2nd Query I have had in a few days, so its looking good. Anyone else who might be keen, please express your interest so I can perhaps make some enquiries about bulk orders. :-o
