very very nice!!! for the horn button try some double sided tape. it'll wedge it in there and help it stay put at the same time. just be sure you maintain the contact point still so your horn works

Installed the Nardi steering wheel to finish it off the interior some little things pending though

Image
Image
Image

Some pictures i took, car was a bit dirty though.

Image

After driving some issues are coming up, like

1. Brakes not taking enough pressure
2. Some heat coming from from the gearbox opening
3. Clutch pedal needs a bit of alignment
4. Exhaust is too low might need working on gearbox mounting and move the exhaust up
5. Steering rod had some problem during alignment time running -1.7 camber on one end and -1.1 on other will be fixed soon

Coils, some trunk emblem, speedo GPS module and fuel sender are on order will be replaced next week. Apart from this car drives very nice suspension if a bit stiff i guess will loosen up after some driving.

Lots of work has been done, changed the brake booster, custom fitted one from some Mitsubishi pickup, fitted nicely on 1" willwood brake master cylinder. Sorted out the gear mounts and downpipe, some dropping in the front on right side it bottom out already seems like fenders flares might not be installed properly or some other issue.

Installed custom door sills
Image

Had some stickers lying with me which I ordered at different times stuck those

Datsun and Cusco
Image

Project X workshop just repping them for a while
Image
Image

Cusco rear strut
Image

Old school :)
Image

JAF and a tricky JNC (courtesy to Toolz)
Image

PMC-S, Prince motor-sports some might not feel this on a Z but I love it
Image

One more along with repping :tu: JNC in Dubai
Image

PMC-S inside on console
Image

Speedcorner
Image

Last found an old one lying around perfect!
Image

Exhaust all sorted
Image

Almost final height, already bottom out in front right side
Image

Left front side seems a bit more lowered but its more to do with the way flares are installed
Image
Image

Next up is changing the downpipe this week ,then installing coils on weekend a do the final tune along sorting out AC ducting.

Very nice!

What is the brand of those seats? OMP? I have been looking for a suitable set of seats for my z. I already had a pair of glassfibre buckets, but those were impossible to mount low enough. I am 186 cm tall and it was impossible to wear helmet with those seats..

Did you modify original floor and mounting points?

Hi, got it through a friend here he owns some car parts shop, according to him these are done by same manufacturer who also do contract manufacturing for OMP and some recaros.

These sit as same level as stock ones Im 176 and there is still room over my head but havent tried it yet with a helmet

Some work done in past few weeks

Changed the coils, plugs (thought plugs were changed in previous workshop), installed GPS module for the autometer speedo as had problem in getting signal from the gearbox and also installed the autometer fuel center unit.

Plugs, no idea how the car was running and even tuned on these, I did ask the workshop when installing other things to change it got back to them and they said politely ohh we forgot :td:

Image
Image

Got NGK BCPR7ES aka 3330

Image

Old fuel sender which came with surge tank out
Image
Image
Image

Was broken thats why gauge always showed FULL :roll:
Image

Autometer one height adjusted and there it goes in
Image

Autometer GPS speedo interface, peace of mind now accurate reading regardless of tire/diff sizes

Image
Image

Splitfire coils for Neo
Image
Image
Image

Time for these to go out
Image
Image

Old vs New
Image
Image

Done
Image
Image

Plugged and ready to fire
Image

Took the car to a local meet and did shoot with some 350z and 370z

Ok project moving in another phase Engine SWAP. As people on some forums know I sold my current setup with everything including radiator, ecu etc.

I was planning for a while to swap RB25/30 NA setup but after reviewing it a lot working with different heads and lack of upgraded cams in some heads dropped the idea. Moved to VQ35DE/HR for which wiring is a bit of a pain but then couldnt find HR engine and where I found with online wiring service (2k$) and engine cost over all project costs jumped.

So in between talking to few installer came across something unusual and interesting taking it as a challenge.

VQ30DET, its a rare engine same quad cams but block is much stronger then VQ35 and low compression as it comes with a turbo from factory.

As per some forums stock engine is running on 5-6psi and gives around 280hp and turbo can go easily upto 14psi before playing with the wastegate and power can go upto 350ish but still needs to be checked, as people are running cars upto 500whp on stock block and its holding great so there is good potential in the engine. Being a destroked version compared to VQ35 its revs better as well. One other things which my mechanic said engine is without VVT so can change the cam gears as well if needed along with cams maybe for future.

After looking for a while found one here, as per Air flow meter clips seems like came out of 2002-2006 model Nissan Cima here it is

Image
Image
Image
Image

Bought the whole things with 8 speed CVT gearbox lol, and engine mounts sway bars and most importantly ECU and harness.

Was lucky found a CD009 gearbox out of 2006 JDM 350z as well.

Image
Image

Covers removed from engine it needs proper cleaning for sure
Image
Image

There will be alteration needed in cross member, whole exhaust manifold on engine and might need to move the turbo a bit as well.

I opened up the engine so do some colours and for some porting the exhaust and intake inlets, engine was clean but too much slug inthe oil sump seems like car was running on those 30k limited oil, but compression came out good. Only problem was turbo came out broken one fan was missing so will change that from the shop got the engine.

Fan was chocked and one side one is missing, as for the size seems bigger then RB25 turbo more like GT25 series size.

Image

Engine opened up
Image
Image
Image

Intake and TB
Image

Lower intake manifold
Image

These are parts I dropped for chroming will do a contrast in these three, (sample chrome piece on left side ;))
Image
Image
Image

Pulleys as well for chroming
Image
Image
Image

This thread is going to be busy again

Did some quick port and polish job done.

Image
Image
Image

Removed cam and timing covers got those chromed first!
Image
Image
Image
Image

Red and black colour was applied on these along with matte and glossy clearcoat to have have some kind of anodized effect in red and other black chrome.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Will be installed once engine is all cleaned up

Removed the old engine and engine bay came out messy, thinking of painting a satin black or sating finish golden while its empty, any suggestions?

Image

Engine mounts are in works, which is the tricky part will update how it goes.

Removed the Adaptronic ECU little bit of wiring to be removed then previous engine and other stuff will be shipped ti California

Dropped the new engine in to have some measurements for exhaust manifold and custom mounts

Image
Image
Image

Sits way back and intake might touch the hood

Image
Image

Gearshifter braket needs goood 4-5" of cutting to come in place of stock hole as well.

Image

Crossmember is touching the crank case but will move the engine down another 3-4". Will alter the cross member might make a new one and move the radiator close to engine along with AC condenser and Oil cooler. Intercooler will be in same place as before might be longer pipes but wont be close to hot oil cooler.

Image

Parts already ordered will be here in a week's time
1. Griffin Double Pass Radaitor 19" X 24"
2. 16" Flex-a-Lite high majic 3300 CFM puller fan with shroud would need some shroud work, going with single big fan then twins as last time.
3. JWT clutch and flywheel combo
4. Moshimoto Intercooler
5. Moshimoto Coolant reserviour tank

Also converting to power steering as feeling wise stock wasnt that good and crossmember is in works so would be easier to do now. so got these
1. Used 2000 Subaru forester steering rack
2. New outer tie rod ends for 1998 subaru legacy/impreza
3. 84 toyota celica inner tie rod ends
4. Whiteline steering rach & Pinion mount bushes
5. Energy suspension stock steering rack bushes
6. Moshimoto Power steering bottle ;)

There is a DIY to install subaru forester steering rack using celica inner and legacy outer tie rod ends, lets see how it goes.
