WTB: 9mm 240z Connecting Rods

Recommended Posts

I'm shopping for a good set of 133mm long connecting rods with 9mm bolts from a late 240z.

I've found a few places online but don't want to spend quite so much. PM me with a price if you have some.

I'm not exactly close, but I think I have a set if that works for you. Definitely have another set, but they are still in a 73 engine. Will check the first and PM you.

Right now I'm just trying to maximize quality and price. MSA has some for $106 each, but I can't tell if they are NOS or aftermarket or what.

Found a used set for $350 but seems high and there's an error on the site so I don't know if there's a shipping charge. If no one has a set I might be stuck with these options.

I had looked into the CX Racing ones, but there's no consensus on them on any of the Z forums, other than that they have terrible customer service.

Aren't there garage-fulls of L24's out there, from L28 swaps?  Seems like you could get an old engine pretty easily.

Seems like but I haven't seen one yet. Granted I've only been shopping for rods for a few days.

Maybe everyone is doing like me and keeping their 2.4L engine in a crate.

And there IS a consensus on CX Racing: stay far away.

I've got a set but I'm gonna see what Matthew does then copy-cat his build. LOL

I used the 8mm in my 2.4, balanced them at like 438 grams IIRC.  Put APR bolts in.  With an aluminum flywheel it spins up like a motorcycle,  not a Hog, a real motorcycle.

Rods purchased!

Thanks everyone, but especially zKars.

Siteunseen, I'll post the plan in my build thread this evening.

Talking about real motorcycles got me thinking of @rossiz

Where have you been Geoff?  Hope you're doing well.

Been consumed with moving, and now visiting family in MA. Gotta purge my Z stash - will be posting soon...
