Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Bought some new boot hatch struts from Rockauto, the original ones on this have never held the hatch up since I bought it, very easy install and they came with new hardware, now it stays up on it's own. That's all I've done to this recently. James helped me cut up the parts car and we took it to the...

Re: S12's - Gotta Catch 'em All

One on Trademe at the moment and it sounds like the guy owns another.

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Ended up having to take the inlet manifold off again so I took it to work and sandblasted it while it was off, came up pretty good. I'll give the fuel rail a coat of paint before it goes back on as well, and yes I'll be sand blasting the rocker cover too. https://i.imgur.com/3cYQn4h.jpg Haven't done...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Cleaned the manifold at work, came up a bit better. I'm going to remove the fuel rail and a couple of the other rusty looking bits and give them a clean/paint before I put the rest of it together. There were a bunch of ARP bolts at work that were going in the scrap metal bin so I liberated them, tur...

Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

Here's the box, it's pretty big & heavy. I think I got a pretty good deal, the VQ35 ended up coming with an almost brand new set of ID1000 injectors, a Honeywell oil pressure sensor, Mocal oil filter sandwich plate, plenum spacer, sump spacer, aftermarket knock sensor and an almost new bigger E ...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Got the manifolds off this. I took the inlet manifold to work and gave it a clean in the big dishwasher, it came up a little bit better. Will get it back together this weekend hopefully. https://i.imgur.com/MAJytPg.jpg This was the reason for having to pull them off https://i.imgur.com/KJye6Oz.jpg

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

So the VQ35 that I bought came with a pretty much brand new set of ID1000 injectors in it, which are bigger and newer than the ones I have in this currently. They are 14mm top o ring so don't fit in the existing fuel rail, so I made a new one. Can't put them in until my new plugs show up which is pr...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Good work DJ, I seem to recall Brock having one of those manifolds with a broken stud and it was absolutely diabolical trying to get it out. Going to delete the EGR also? Looks like you're putting some good work in! Yeah I was expecting it to be a lot harder than it turned out to be, I thought abou...

Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

I've been looking for a gearbox for this for a while and just bought a complete VQ35DE and 6 speed box out of a 350Z, off to Queenstown with James this weekend to collect it. The gearbox has a dicky synchro which is pretty common, parts aren't too expensive for them, but if I can sell the engine the...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

I should have looked at the exhaust manifold before I put the engine in, it didn't have down pipe on it when I took it out of the donor car, turns one of the studs was stripped. I bought another L20E for the dizzy and a couple of other bits, I was hoping the exhaust manifold was going to be good but...
