    I've done it and it wasn't easy. I ended up drilling out a couple of fittings to get the job done but it worked out in the end. Soak the fittings in good rust penetrant and use flare wrenches so you...

    Every dyno result you see is likely from a chassis dyno (to the wheels), unless it was on an engine dyno (e.g. Rebello).

    It's also completely useless to compare numbers from different dynos....

    Dual Weber DGV carbs are inferior to the original SUs. Now DCOEs (what Ermish is likely familiar with) are a different story. If I were you, I'd track down a set of round top SUs, or triple Weber...

    Martin never implied the rod on the left would have a shorter throw, where did you deduce that from? I think you initially confused the issue when saying that the shifter on the right will have a...

    I highly recommend going to a lightweight flywheel while you're in there. The Fidanza is a nice unit, well worth the price IMO. I'm using a 10lb Fidanza and OEM-replacement clutch behind my L28...

    Martin is correct, the rod on the right will have shorter throws.

    The shift rod movement required to engage a gear is a constant. The longer arm will move the shift rod more per degree, thus the...

    Yes, that's the gland nut P/N. AJUSA was able to source them for me and were awesome to deal with. Another HBZ member recently bought the same stuff and they were able to get it all for him. Hurry,...

    Nice, Hwy 20 is a blast! That is, if the slow movers pull over or you go at off-peak hours. We camped at MacKerricher a month or two ago, it's a beautiful area along with the rest of Northern CA.

    Exactly! I have to do that with the Z and even my bone-stock S2000. It just adds one step to the process, you get used to it. :)

    You can do a leak down test but those compression numbers aren't awful. I bet some valves are just not sealing as well as the others. If your oil consumption isn't the rings, it could be the valve...
