    Oil smoke is whitish blue. Most people just say it's white. But the real key here is that it doesn't smoke after driving for a while. Therefore I concur with the previous diagnosis by Ed. The stem...

    Man! I screwed myself

    I noticed the other day that there was some water dripping from my water pump. It looked like it was from the gasket but just to be safe I wanted to check to make sure that it was pumping water.

    It seems almost like a dishonor to put an SR20 in a Z. Don't get me wrong the SR is a beautiful engine. But IMO it simply does not have the sound I would normally associate with a Z. Gimme a 6 or an...

    Is it #1 and #3 or #1 and #6??

    If it's 1 and 3 I would guess a combination of lean front carb, too much advance and perhaps some cooling issues. If it's 1 and 6 other than severe cooling issues I...

    Generally you would only change the gap if you increased the compresson, ran alternative fuels or ran forced induction.

    I believe the problem with datsun 89mm pistons is the wrist pin height. There would be too much positive deck clearance. I have never done the mock up or the math but this is what I've read.

    Definitely not changing the rods alone. But changing the crank for a longer/shorter stroke will certainly necessitate changing the rods.

    Re: Torque to me

    I was trying to make sense of that dyno chart too. There is no way a NA L20 motor makes more than 160 lb/ft of torque. And that is full race built.

    It's definitely not forced induction because...

    I believe the stock carb bodies flow 130 cfm a piece. So even a 3.1 stroker at 100% VE can still use the stock carb bodies. You would only need to upgrade to SM needles.
