Hey guys. My name is Seth and I have a 1977 280Z that I bought back in 2006. I kind of inherited someone else's project, so the car definitely needs some work. I daily drove the car for 3 years or so, but now it's time to get some kinks worked out. The car needs heat, rust repair (floor pans and a few other little things), lots of odds and ends, and now a turbo swap.
I found a complete 280zx turbo donor car on Craigslist for under $600 bucks, and it even started and ran! It has taken me many months to get all of the parts I need off of the car, as I haven't had as many free Saturdays as I would like, but I am getting there. I have the motor and trans out, the main engine harness, the fuel pump, and now I just need to get a few small other harness parts off the car before it is off to the junkyard. I am sure my brother will appreciate having his driveway back. :lol:
This will probably be a relatively slow build thread, but hopefully you guys enjoy it. I am going for really really budget on this, as I am selling parts and recouping money to put back into the project. At the beginning it will be pretty much a stock 280zx turbo, other than downpipe, intake, and exhaust. The motor has perfect compression across the board, so it will be put in as is for now.
Pictures to come!
