What is going to be the recipe for that 3.0 stroker?

As of today, it is now going to be a 3.1 Stroker.....exactly the same specs as the last Stroker except for some side draft carbs. Eiji has started on the block already....he also has the pistons and rods.....240 mm flywheel and a stock turbo clutch. The last stage I clutch wears me out lol.

Guy, did you decide whether to go triple carbs or ITB FI?  I would guess that ITB FI would be easier to get max power, but both are equally awesome.

What’s up Jeff? Haven’t decided yet.....I want to drive Eiji’s with FI first, but he thinks that’s the way to go. It’s a real budget buster, but some things you just have to muscle up to the table....especially since my son Brandon is trying to out do the old man with his RB powered Z31. :facepalm:

What you spend in $$ will come back to you in the versatility to tune to your hearts desire and not smell gas in your finger again ! Then there’s having a lean idle and no smells of float bowls venting into the garage . You can make a tune change while watching the evening news in your lazy boy !  Weather change? No worries , EFI got it covered. 

So have you been doing any hands on assembly with your motors or does Eji do it all?

Eiji is building the bottom end.....I’m building the top end. I’ve built 18 to 20 L series motors by myself, but Eiji does it so well. BTW....You are talking me into FI Madkaw.....sounds like the way to go......can’t wait. Never had crank fire ignition either.....moving on up!

I knew you built your own motors - that’s why I asked. My Rebello will come as a kit for me to assemble . Hopefully I’ll have another engine build or two under my belt before I do it. At least he will do the block prep for me . I will still be a bit nervous will my ‘ investment’. 

I do and did enjoy carbs- but wanted to prove this old dog could learn some new tricks . And when and if I go pressurized with an L motor - it’s about required

I always value your opinion Madkaw......thanks for pushing me over the edge in regards to FI......Time to step up to new technology......it is twice the cost of carbs......maybe I’ll start a go fund me L series motor! ROFL

You are way over my head Chickenman.....I count on Eiji when it comes to what new systems to use.....I don’t even know what Mega squirt is.....But, I value your opinion too.....thanks for the advice!

A year and a half ago I was in the same boat, it was all Greek to me, Chickenman and few others helped me through. 

The thing about MS is that it is capable of so much and many people are fluent in it so it's not that hard to find help when you need it.

I'd go the other way and say stay with carbs.  Yes they're not as easy to setup, cause more hassle etc, however they're part of the car, its a classic car, the engine bay just looks better with carbed setup.  pops/bangs/fuel smell are just part of the fun.

I agree.

There's a reptilian brain response when the triples open up. Ask someone with a V12 and 6 carbs what that does to their brain when the throttle is mashed.

Can't disagree.  Triples have a sound and appearance that is just right on a Z.  In the end, it will be amazing either way.

I probably fall on the side ITB's. I love the sound of triples but there is something nice about being able to dial a setup in just right and account for temperature and a half dozen other variables. As well as easily tune the AFR's with a fuel map...Get in and go...

Completely understand. That's why I have a second (modern) vehicle that handles temp and a half dozen other variables and two 45 year old cars (street and race car) with triples which were set on the dyno years ago. Mikuni and Solex (have both) don't seem to need adjustment like Webbers.
