    I love that clip. You can see that the Z is on the ragged edge, but what a ride!

    Get the suspension done.

    I have to agree with the others. Your best bet is complete the suspension first.

    I have seen some very good EP 280z's. I would think about that arena before ITS. Since the E36 has been allowed to...

    Hey Rick. Whats the compression allowed in EP? I have been arguing with a buddy of mine (325IS). His is 10:1, and I have read that Z's are allowed 12:1. That info is rather old (mine), so I was just...
  4. LD28 crank weight

    I am pretty sure there is little difference in the weight of an L28 vs LD28 crank. Just a longer stroke.

    The specs for the clutch type LSD are 45lbs of torque to break away, or start acting like a regular diff. That is not much torque. You can increase that by shimming the diff, but not by much.

    I have never seen anything bigger than an R160 in a Subaru. I am going to check around though and see what is in the Legacy's and the SVX. My interest is piqued.

    Response...LONG

    Ok, here are my observations about the Z and comparisons to other cars of similar size.

    I find the 240Z an excellent basis for a BUDGET racer/street machine. The suspension is very simple and very...

    After much consideration, I decided on the Nismo unit with the 1 5/8 primaries. They are 32" equal length headers. Very nice. I hope mine will be here soon.

    Got it from Strictly Z. Ask for Yuichi....

    Whew! Thats a tall order! $4600 will not go super far on that project, but with some frugal spending and going to this site and the others (Zcar.com and Hybridz.org) for parts, you might get ahead!

    I would not go over 2mm on the overbore unless you have an F54 280ZX block and then 3mm is possible, but I would still stick with the 2mm.

    You still have to get pistons for that as well. I am not...

    It all depends on the engine. If you are running a stock L24 with a good header, a Weber 40mm DCOE or Mikuni 40 PHH would be ok. The Weber will provide more topend power and the Mikuni better...
