Kotaro Y owns this low VIN (#2115) 1970 240z and he came to ZCG for some serious performance upgrades. Topping the list of go-fast parts: A Rebello 3.2L stroker motor with triple Mikuni pHH 44s…a match made in heaven! Here is the stock L-series with dual-SU carbs and OEM Nissan blue engine block. Out it goes…

…And now for the 3.2L transformation! Before dropping the new beastly powerplant into the detailed engine bay we added an MSD igntion, JWT Flywheel and Clutch, and a Koyo aluminum radiator with custom upper/lower hoses:

No triple-carb setup is complete without the ZCG custom made heat sheild…

Image

The 3.2L looks great but does it perform? Oh yeah, big time! Kotaro’s Z is the 2nd highest NA L-series to roll the dyno at ZCG: 268hp/246tq to the wheels! The sound that accompanies this power is amazing.

Image

The Z also needed some minor cosmetic work like fixing the tach, door handles, brake lights and fuel hoses…all in a day’s work at shop So what is next for Kotaro? 14 days after we handed him the keys to his new 3.2L Zed, he came back to ZCG of course because with great power comes great responsibility! He needed some brakes. Not just any brakes but the track tested and proven ZCG big-brake kit. Kotaro will also be getting our 240sx gearbox upgrade (as seen on Gary’s Resto) which is a fantastic transmission swap to run behind your L-series powerplant. As for the interior, we will install some new Recaro LXF seats…stay tuned for the next chapter as the New Year will be exciting for Kotaro’s Z!

Hi Alvin,
The car and numbers from the dyno are impressive. Could you please feature the engine bottom end buildup? What kind of crank, rods and pistons? Deck height changed? Any mods to the lubrication system? What about the head? Any info and pics would be great. Thanks.

Regards,
Dan

+1, I'd also like to know what kind of compression ratio & Mikuni jet settings. VERY impressive numbers.
