    I think it was 14 ft. lbs. IIRC. Someone will have to verify. You don't need to remove the thermostat housing. As Zed head said, I used a couple extensions along with a socket swivel/joint. I...

    My L29 engine builder had to mill the 0.030 over pistons a little off the top for his own peace of mind I believe. Otherwise he told me I needed a 2-3mm head gasket. I'd have to ask him exactly why....
  6. K&N Air Filters

    The K&N air filters actually arrived from Pegasus Racing on April 30th I just didn't make the time to post an update. I'm a lot more willing to go for longer drives now. I did not factor the cost of...

    Thanks for the tips guys. I filled it with fluid and have been driving it for a week or so--about 180 miles. It still whines but my new parts from Black Dragon for the other R180 arrived so I'll be...
  8. Poll: Gory story

    Last year my diff was whisper quiet last year while driving. There was a clunk every once in a while during hard shifting, but that's all.

    I was coming back from a local team's baseball game. I...

    Preface:

    After firing up my high(er) compression L29 with triple SKs, I was so eager to go for a ride that I made it 2.5 miles before realizing I had drained the diff fluid while the motor was...

    So far I'm really impressed with the tires. When I park in my garage dirt and tree buds, etc. stick to the tread all around the tire. Even touching the rubber feels very grippy as opposed to most...
  11. She's on the ROAD!

    It's been a while since my last update. Layla is breathing and running on the road. All I can say is it's an amazing feeling.

    A couple steps back:

    The WRX was a show car owned by a 55 year old woman. She traded it in to a dealer on a new WRX. The dealer stripped it for the most part before sending it to auction. Wheels, stereo, CAI, exhaust....
  13. My new daily

    And not Datsun related, but in between all this I flew to Houston to pick up a new daily driver. It's a one owner 2002 Subaru WRX wagon with 115,000 miles after the road trip back to Georgia.

  14. Update time

    Made some decent progress with my 2.9L L28 swap in the past couple weeks.

    For the area where I replaced metal under the battery tray, I coated it with bedliner to add another layer of protection,...

    Just to confirm my idiocracy, the tires look perfectly aligned with no issues after the L28 was put in.

    Looks like you'll be back on the road soon to enjoy the Austin weather!

  19. Replaced Steering Rack Bushings - Now Tires are Misaligned???

    I searched through the forums...just as the title states. I replaced the steering rack bushings with new OEM rubber while the engine was out of my 1973 240z.

    The car did not move during...

    I appreciate your attention to detail and you're making amazing progress! I too am going through my 240Z in the same fashion. The only difference is I started with my engine. It'd been depressing how...

    How long ago did you purchase the heat shield? I've been checking on the ZCC website for a while now and the L6 heat shield has always been unavailable.
