Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Cleaned up the driveway enough to get the car out of the garage which I'll do later today so I can give it a bit of a clean and line up the bonnet properly. Haven't done too much more to the engine, welded up a new vacuum chamber after work one night, haven't fitted it the engine yet as I'm not sure...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Wired up the oil pressure sensor last night and ran it again, it's still running pretty rich so it fouled a plug while I was trying to start it. It looks like it's running about 50psi of oil pressure at the inlet to the turbo at idle which is still a bit higher than Garrett recommends for the ball b...

Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

Finally managed to get the rear subframe mounts out of the parts Laurel, what a nightmare. I wouldn't try and remove it in one piece next time as it didn't work very well this time, I'd just cut them out.

The plastic bit I was talking about...you know when you remove the door card...you often have to open the lever and remove the plastic behind the lever...? That's the bit I'm talking about.


The escutcheon?

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Have mucked around with this a bit, cut up the throttle cable out of the parts Laurel and connected it up to the dyno throttle control thing, then ran it for about half an hour the other night and warmed it up fully. Have put an oil pressure sensor in line with the turbo oil feed, just have to wire ...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Exciting stuff - will there be a video of the dyno run on the big day? Yeap, definitely. Got it started tonight after a bit of dicking around, I wired the TPS backwards but it also looks like the new Aliexpress plug that I got isn't making a good connection so I'll have to fix that. Started fine wi...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Mucked around with the water to air intercooler a bit, I couldn't find many bits of 3" pipe or silicons in my stash but did the best I could. Also swapped the dyno fuel pump for the one out of the Z and I also cut the exhaust off just before the flexi. https://i.imgur.com/94ah2aJ.jpg This is th...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Got the motor in the dyno frame today. I had to machine down the ends of the bolts a little bit as they stuck out, it looks like they are slightly too long as well, I'll confirm that tomorrow but I think I need to take about 3mm off the other end. Put oil in it today as well, had a minor leak as I h...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

How many psi are you going to tune it to? 580hp seems to be a number they can make quite happily. It occurred to me that I have never been for a ride in this car yet. Something I'm quite looking forward to one day. Going to keep adding boost until something breaks then back it off 2 pounds. Not too...
