Pros:  Car has been in Murrieta, CA from 1993 unitl 2010; Texas until 2016.  Been in TN for one year.  3.1 stroker setup with 1000 miles since build.  Z Therapy carbs with needle setup for 3.1 stroker engine.  Light wire harness relay upgrade.  Z Specialists 125 amp alternator.  S2000 seats.  Innovate O2 wideband.  Cold air intake.  79 280zx 5 speed that was overhauled 2014.  Fuel pump inertia cutoff switch.  USB wired in glove box.  Floor pans are solid.  Floor from firewall to rear was primed and then Fatmat installed.  Toyota 2 piston calipers with 15/16 master cylinder.  Just replaced clutch master cylinder.

Funny I love the hood!  That center peice is worth a couple hundred bucks. 

Is there an electric fuel pump even with the mechanical one? GLWS. I think it should sell pretty quick.

Dave Rebello will built that engine for around $7,800 with not core parts, if I am not mistaken. I would like to know what the dyno output is on this engine. Looks like a good deal if that is the style Z you are interested in.

Pretty darn close, ask me how I know.  My motor is very close except for the cam (Rebello custom vs Isky) and Dave estimates it a 285hp+ on SU's and he claims 300+ on triples.

Sounds good, I am considering having Dave build me a 2.7 stroker (purist engine) using my numbers matching engine. He suggested I go for the 3.1 and sit my engine aside. This is how I have some Idea of the cost. Still undecided, but have all summer to consider it. JLP

That hood gets a mixed review.  No middle ground from the crowd.....they just love it or hate it!  Also here are a few shots of the Magnaflow exhaust.

I replaced the stock fuel pump with a nice quiet 5 PSI Carter pump and wired in the inertia cutoff switch.  Just block the mechanical and it's ready for a set of Weber DCOEs.

Have you considered posting it on Bring a Trailer?  Those guys are nuts for Z's lately, ill probably post mine up there this summer.  If you put my username in there (kurbycar32) I think they send me $100

That much money with only mild port work?  I don't see it.  With those carbs, that camshaft, so little headwork, and a so-so exhaust, I can't see the engine putting out much more than 200hp.  There is value in the short block due to the large bore and v07 crank, but with cheap ITM cast pistons, it's not exactly a Rebello block.  

If selling used, I'd think it would go for maybe $3k.  

If it was fully ported, forged pistons, triple Mikuni carbs, a proper performance header, and a dyno sheet showing what it puts out, then $6k, maybe a little more.  

All of this said, at $12,000 it's a very nice, and solid, looking car at a great price.  Should sell quickly!

Don't know where you are buying your parts, but I'm building a 3.1 stroker  as we speak. With light weight forged pistons and rods, Datsun Spirit's bill for the bottom end alone assembled is $5,150.00, not counting the $1200.00 crank I supplied. The head was $5,500.00 from the Z Doc and that doesn't count carbs or headers.....even the budget Stroker offered here probably was a very expensive investment. Just interested if you recall what you've got in your 3.1 dawg7?

Z therapy carbs and headers .....another $1,000.00....still a heck of a lot cheaper than I would have guessed.....sorry Ryan....guess you were right.

I'm working on getting a dyno run.  I'll be surprised if it hits 200 but all I know is I have a lot of fun with the torque. This engine is definitely a budget build BUT it was put together by a professional engine builder!

I had a budget stroker build in my Z when I bought it, pretty similar to yours, except with triple Mikuni carbs.  What it lacked in absolute horsepower output, it made up for in fun with it's wide torque band.  Great engine for the street!

I believe that bolt on hood vent is either one of the original aftermarket or maybe Nissan issued options, can't quite remember the details on it but I have seen them go for a good penny. Agreed, it's not a great look with those louvers but when you need room for a larger engine transplant they are a godsend.
