    I have a 260 with early SU's and a 280 with FI. An FI system in proper working order is nice for a street Z, but I love the simplicity of my SU car. It fires right up and runs great. If you go...

    I went the other route and didn't shim or change the valves. I modified the cam gear to get the timing right and the chain guides to get the tension right. Works great on my race motor that sees...

    About 20 years ago, I sent my injectors into Marren Motorsports for cleaning and they told me they were beyond saving. They found me new Ram brand injectors and when they flow tested them, they were...

    Congrats and welcome to the club. I like the front air dam, but I think I'd do something different on the sides and rear.

    Two things...

    ALWAYS stuff a rag into the timing chain hole so you don't lose anything down there

    When you stuff the rope into the cylinder, do it with the piston a bit before TDC. Once the...

    Glad to hear it runs! My very first Z was a rusty '72 that I bought for $200 out of a field back in 1984. I flat towed it home and within an hour had it running. The floorboards had been cut out...

    The resistor in the water temp sensor circuit will make the mixture richer, so that should have made the situation worse, not better. A vacuum leak will lean it back out making it run better. As...

    No problem. The dip will get worse with sun and air pressure while driving at higher speeds.

    Looks like Christmas Matt. :)

    Site unseen cars have been hit or miss for me. All in all, I'd do it again, but those first 10 minutes with the new car are really scary.
