  1. Took it out for a drive a couple of days ago, sadly i don’t get the time to drive it as much as i want. Starts right up and runs great as usual.
  2. 8” ET 0 will fit nicely with a 225x50 tire but that’s about as wide as it gets without massaging the fenders. Small world as usually ; ) Im in a small town called Ödeshög (next to lake Vättern) about 250KM south of Kista. Summertime here are often great and as you say days are bright but winters are the opposite, not much daylight for many month. Dark when you wake up and dark when you get home from work.
  3. Yes you have a lot more rainy days per year in Britain then here in Sweden, not so fun when the weather change so quickly. Im changing my mind regarding the wheels but my mind is now set on a set of equip 03s in 15X8.
  4. Yeah, rattle can and heat gun. Worked out well. Tires are still very good, don’t get many miles per year and never in rain. But aiming for new wheels next season.
  5. Painted my wheels (rubber paint so it can be removed) anthracite grey. Nice with a new look for awhile till i can pull the trigger on some other wheels. Also changed my interior bulbs to leds.
  6. Thanks, sound is really awesome at higher rpms ; ). It’s actually a 6-1 header from Msa and a 2 1/2” pipe to a Zstory jdm muffler.
  7. Can’t agree more with you Guy, you got to love them L6-series engines.
  8. Started her up for this season. IMG_0079.MOV IMG_0077.MOV
  9. Thats a rare ”compe” wheel, i think i have only seen a handful pics of them. Mach wheel to the left i guess? Big envy...
  10. Common on most European 240z I think
  11. Lip with the matching pre drilled valence with nut insterts.
  12. Haven’t driven the car in a couple of weeks but today i found some time. It drives so well after the dyno tune.
  13. My tuner played with the lowspeed to get the afr a bit better from the start, sadly i don’t know what he put in but it made it a bit better.
  14. For comparison. A friend of mine were at the same dyno a couple of weeks before me. L28 with 3x45 webers basically same as mine but he has a ported N42 head and a bigger cam. Got a lot more power.
  15. Lowspeed 55 F8 Main155 Air 160 Tube F16 Acc 45 Choke 36 But i had some problems at around 2500-3000rpms and the tuner adjusted something that made it a bit better will check tomorrow.
  16. Less power on this dyno but i think this dyno is very accurate (have been on two other dynos before). But i have a nice curve.
  17. Went for a 230km “hot as hell” trip to get the engine tuned on a dyno then the same “hot as hell” 230km trip home again....damn these cars aren’t made for driving in the sun. Found some pics on the web from last car meet when waiting for the tuner.
  18. Hahaha, well it’s an old American style race car ; )
  19. Well, it’s the first only Japcar meet since 2007 and we were 610 cars so that was great. Still only 5 Z cars.
  20. Here’s a new dash from Vintage Dashes with a km/h face swap. There may be a small stock of the dashes (If it was a 240z you had) here in Europe if you are interested @EuroDat //Andreas
  21. Well, depending on were in the world you live parts aren’t as available as in other places. I live in Sweden and when i swapped my oem cam in my Us spec 240z for a Schneider cam (head had been rebuilt in the USA and the rebuilder wasent as exact/good as he should have been) the lashpads had to be adjusted a bit to get the exact wipe. I left the pads and my measurements to a mechanical school and they grinded them down to the size i wanted (then I could take some off if needed by myself with a small file. For me it would have taken 2-4 weeks or so to get correct lashpads from the US. This way it took me a couple of hours. I started with size 190 (that was all that msa had to offer) but can’t remember were i ended up, there were not to much that needed to be taken off the pads but still... better to aim for the exact same wipe on all then just make it work. //Andreas
  22. Nice!! What head gasket (thickness) was used and how tight was it between pistons and valves? Is the head shaved and how much in that case? //Andreas
  23. Just a heads up.. The pillar emblem for the early Fairladys are allready being replicated/made in Europe.
