    Actually Mike, in the last few years I haven't spent much time on any site, just a lot of work travel :)

    P90 Turbo Head Hydraulic Adjustors

    These came off a head with less than 100 miles. I don't know what they are worth hence have put them up on eBay.

    For those with worn adjusters on a factory turbo, there's always the option to...

    Here is the best 73 wiring diagram I have, but it does not include the fuel pump harness unfortunately.

    Connect the battery with the key out of the ignition and wait for 5 minutes. The offending relay will be warmer than the rest of them.

    The relay is under the dash on the passenger side near the pull handle for ventilation. It should be easy to find - just feel for the warm one.

    I used to run an N42 head with .030" over flat tops and a Delta Cams regrind (probably not quite as much overlap as the Isky cam you're considering). I was not able to run full advance in the 4500...

    Dave, I did the ZX Alt swap before you offered your plug-in version and made my own with the diode using the connector from the old regulator. On my 73 with a 2/73 build date the electric fuel pump...

    I just checked one of my old engines to confirm that the tensioner is on the plug side, so I think something else is going on. The rotation of the engine should keep the manifold side tight.

    I'll just add/clarify 2 things:

    - the L28 can rev just as well as the L24. The shape of the torque curve is mostly a function of the cam you choose. The L28 with the same head/cam combination as...

    I ran triple webers for a while and never, and I mean NEVER, got over 20 mpg on a tank, even with steady freeway cruising. They sound fabulous and make great power though. Since you seem to care...

    I found a compact spare at the local pick n pull. It only fits over the rears (240sx caliper conversion), but if a front fails, then I'll swap a rear to the front and put the spare on the rear. I...

    Adding a reground cam can be done without otherwise changing the head, and in my case noticeably increased max torque, albeit at a higher rpm. The engine also pulled well to 6500 rpm compared to...

    I run a late 280zx 5 speed with 4.11 and love it. When I ran NA with a medium cam it was great because it didn't take long to get into the power band, and the cam pulled well to 7k so there was...

    A healthy LS1 and T56 is worth more than $2k all by itself. I hate to say it, but it has that "too good to be true" sound.

    But if it's just that he wants to get rid of it and has dropped the...

    The cam will make a difference too. If you have plans to change cams any time soon, wait until you do that before you make any more exhaust changes.
