Both are from Sean at Z-story. The top one is is the Sport header and the bottom one is his Race header.
Fit perfectly. I removed the driver side motor mount and steering shaft. I wanted to test fit before I replaced the head. Hope to get that done this week.

Clear turnsignal lenses mounted.

This week I also got out to the BCZR 3rd Thursday Meet.  We had a great turnout, over a dozen S30's made it.

Finally got my car off the jack stands and out of the garage last weekend.  Here are a couple of pics from my first drive of 2018.

Blue started on the first crank!

But I forgot to install Throttle return springs so it raced quite quickly with an amazing front fire blast of flame.  It seemed angry.

 

Off to the hardware store to get springs.

Springs installed. Just ran it for 20min.  Timing, coolant, oil all working fine.  The only problem is that the key does not crank the starter. I'll have to look around.

I used a Facet pump rated 3.5 to 4psi.  Rear carb began to overflow so I connected a Mr Gasket fuel pressure  regulator and of course it leaked.... made in China.  I'll have to get a real FPR.

I'd like to install a mechanical pump but the head would need the pump port drilled open, not an "on-the-car" job.

I'll get back at it tomorrow. Drain tank, change oil etc.

The road to Atlanta.....

What gasket yiu going to use on the header? Or just RTV?

Sean at Zstory supplies the gasket. Worked well in the first header. These headers have massive flanges and seal up great.

Hoping to have it ready for the cat show at the Vintage Races this weekend.

Did a few things this evening after work:

 

Drained the gas tank...looks like a nice dark ale. Vintage 2007.

Removed carpets, removed the the tar barrier from the floor pans, vacuumed the interior and test fitted a BMW seat.... comfy!

Looked at the past good old days before 2006 turned my life upside down.

Was that your first Z, in 2006?  If so it really did change your life, and ours, for the better.  I think I would have thrown in the towel were it not for your help and encouragement.  You are what got me hooked on 240s too. That red one you did back around 2011.  So then I went and bought two!  Now I'd have to get a second mortgage to do that.  They've really taken off these last 5 years. LOL

Had some problems with getting fuel from the tank.  Flushed it to get the sediments out. No rust and no por15 coating.  Changed oil and took it around the block.

- Front right brake is dragging

- No tail lights

- No charge

 

Not too bad for 11 year sleep.  I should have these things resolved by the end of the week.

Dropped the hatch carpet in a local shop for carbon copy. The rest of the carpets are in good shape.

Picked up some DOM16 (Canadian equivalent to POR15)

Up next, brakes, transmission fluid, electrical, patches in floors, mount seats.

Finally replaced drivers rear wheel cylinder on my 280. Hasn't been out of the garage in a year at least. Took around the neighborhood for testing.  No leaks and a nice pedal. $10 to my mailbox from rockauto, Centric brand. Happy, happy!
