    ."There are two types of car enthusiasts: 1-those who have never heard of the red car 2-those who read the red car at an impressionable age and had their lives ruined by it. I, of course, am in the second group."

Then I stripped it down did several new gaskets, and painted it. Threw it in the Z with DGVs and after a month of fighting with the...

Afm Spring Adjustment - Bothersome Thoughts

Fuel Injection 22 Mar 2015
I haven't been able to really define what it is about adjusting the spring of the AFM that bothers me.  But I think I've narrowed to down to one thing - preload.     Preload affects when the vane starts to move due to air flow and should be an exact number, matched to the idle air...

I had a collection of odd problems all happen in one day, hot start (unclear why), stuck fuel pump relay (had to use my pump switch to get home), and brake pads grinding on the disc (caught just in time), and one of them, just to confuse the overall situation, was that my tachometer stopped worki...

First Start After Gas Tank Refresh.

Open S30 Z Discussions Yesterday, 03:27 PM
So the my fuel tank is in and the new fuel and vent lines under the car are done ; yayyy!, I expect the vent lines to the vent tank should be a snap in comparison. Do I need to loosen a line near the carbs and let the fuel pump push out any air before I try and start it. I expect there is probab...
