240ZBUILTBYME's Achievements

  1. L6 was always the plan, I never had an original L24, only a L20, so I have a L28 head and block for the build, Ive always planned to go with carbies but lately i have been toying with the idea of doing FI wit ITBs, combined with stroking it makes a pretty potent package.
  2. I agree with you, but if the 240z is cactus I have a 280zx that the worked engine will fit in perfectly…..
  3. Galloways engine builders in perth have manufactured a stroker crank for the L6, fully counter balanced with a knife edge. No engines on the road with them yet, two L series builds currently underway. I have my name on one atm, they’re pricey though.
  4. No, i just like shiny things…. I haven’t made any final decisions about my engine build. And you could argue it’s unnecessary to spend that amount on a street car head.
  5. As an enthusiast of collecting zed parts I have been itching to by parts from the US but have been holding off due to currency exchange being horrible for the AUD/USD and airfreight prices being extortionary. Lately the AUD has been getting stronger but airfreight is remaining stubbornly high. Does anybody have a good index they use to track airfreight prices? Ive been using https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/IS2312 prices still looks over double that of normal
  6. anybody noticed that cars are staying up for sale longer than normal. awful lot of s30s for sale atm.... I think most are just asking way too much. As interest rates go up, prices should come down...
  7. in terms of exchange rate to the yen there's probably no better time. Id love to get one but really want to see some solid numbers and testing come back from a western source.
  8. would be keen to hear whether these reinforcement pieces make much difference to driving feel.
  9. 2 years old Gav! must be time for another time thief???
  10. Have you touched base with stewart wilkins about your concerns? He would have some valuable input I'm sure.
  11. Don't a lot of people run lug centric wheels? (wheel hole doesn't fit tight around hub) I'm pretty sure majority of people run lug centric, id say hubcentric would be less common as its difficult to have after market wheels fit your hubs perfectly. Or I could be wrong...
  12. Firstly I was bored at work and no one bothered to reply 8 months ago secondly I know what it’s like being the new guy. You guys are scary old men! Lol but mostly boredom….
  13. and a 280zx is half the price of a 260z 2+2. if you're on a tight budget a 280zx is a great option. you can get a really good condition car for 20k. go for a series 2 car. They look good once lowered with bigger wheels, amazing interior, you get an L28 motor. They're a bit slow in a straight line but handle well with some bigger wheels and decent tyres and with some simple modifications are a really fun car.
  14. hi John Q1- not a daily driver, not safe, you live in Melbourne where it rains a lot, rain and datsuns = rust Q2- locally Q3- there's this amazing site called google, if you type 240z engine swaps into it you will be bored before you can read half of the results. Do your own research as much as possible before posting questions, people wont respond otherwise. most questions have already been asked and answered. good luck
