  1. It's not 'up to you' Alan and if you see such an opportunity as a task - it's dead in the water - it must be a pleasure, a passion.......a legacy (much like the 'deal' when you took over the C10 from your Japanese friend) to continue educating people, showing, explaining, promoting.

    I absolutely agree with you here "that responsibility has an obligation to get it right, or at least get it as right as possible".

    Without your 'inside' and more profound knowledge, it won't ALL be here so any writer won't know what he's missing to have included !

    Can you imagine me rummaging around and then presenting it to you for pre-production peer critique/fact-checked ? You'd soon get pissed off despite the material for public consumption contained therein !

    Better that the peer himself write it and have THAT checked by HIS peers !

     

  2. So, collated, sieved but plagiarism...always a touchy subject of yours however we're all still waiting for the best possible definitive JDM S30 book (in English) from the man who knows..... and obviously the only way to have the truth told and dispersed...maybe even copied by the lazy journalists but at least they'll be plagiarising what they ought to share.😊

    Sorry Sean but i have no clue what your looking for, can you put a picture up here from the part you are looking for? (i googled your "boot lock press" but still have no clue..

    Is it the lock from the boot? upper or lower? both??

    Hi. This :-) !

    For what?

    Perhaps mayolives perceives that you were criticising when merely pointing out a fact ?

    If it has been gleaned from here then at least it's all in one place - an easy read Ladybird book of 'How to Z432-R' although there are a few bloopers such as : "Kobe Siebo Rally magnesium wheels''

  5. Hi y’all.

  6. I have a prototype to fit between my line and the MSA 6-1......but I'm not keen on the 6-1 design for anything other than its' conceived role - that of track and drag-runs.

    It's not ideal for street cars- it makes noise but noise isn't performance. It creates exhaust drone at highway speeds whereas MSAs 6-2 doesn't.

    On both your drawings, you're missing a resonator which'll not only eliminate the exhaust drone from your 6-1 but will increase the scavenging effect. Fit one of my complete lines without the resonator and not only will it be noisier (no better sound, just more decibels to p*ss off your neighbours and the cops) but should be down as much as 30-40hp on a mildly-tuned performance engine.

     

    I'm not advocating buying one of my systems so this is what I'd reccommed :

    MSA (no-smog) 6-2 (Code: 15-6001 Price:$252.87) 2.5" pipe then convert that 2-1 pipe to become 1x pipe at the rear of the transmission then fitting a resonator before continuing out to your muffler. The header isn't expensive, sell off your 6-1 to recover something, get MSAs Performance exhaust (Code: 15-6021 Price:$174.95)

    With selling off the 6-1, it should cost you about $350 then spend some on extending that secondary pipe and fitting a resonator. You won't get better performance for less !

  7. So, in early July and under this summers' typical weather so far, our national French club assisted with Peter Autos' Historic-Racing Le Mans Bugatti and were allowed several track sessions each day.....who could resist ?
     
    Please bear in mind that I haven't driven my Z on a circuit since 2009...and that the engine is still limited to 4500rpm and so lacking a LOT of horsepower and this wet session was undertaken on Toyo R888 semi-slicks !
     
    Enjoy and have a good laugh on me at the end.
     
    Apparently there are more videos to come earlier in the weekend.....watch this space !
     
    ps the real action starts at 4mins at the beginning of the pit straight - the first out lap was (always in every session) driven behind the safety car :
     
    Many thanks #DavidDonné for the filming and editing.

    He must have had that car for at least 2 weeks.. 🙊  ...  I never have heard he had one..  (But as i am a real hater of soccer.. (we call it: dat stomme voetbal!)  really allergic...  I don't know what cars Johan drove.. i know that he had a citroën SM after the 240z.. what a disappointment that must have been...pffff...)

    Well, he played, coached and died at Barcelona...je neus lang is !

    Ironic really because Cruyff was quoted as saying "Football is a game you play with your brain" 😄

    An SM - fabulous car - pure art mobility.

    Here's another well known footballer and his astute choice of personal car.

  10. The above-bumper front turn-signals were a result of changing European safety laws for minimum-height front visibility !

    Johan apparently later bought a silver 260Z two seater which now resides in Spain - I saw the previous paperwork with his name on and drove it on the Barcelona F1 circuit.

  12. Any headers part-welded onto the flange have been so done to keep costs down.

    If you have the opportunity to buy headers with matching ports do so.

    A 6-1 will work, a 6-2 will work better*.....better still with longer twin secondary pipes joining to 1x at the rear of the gearbox and not before the firewall.

    All said, of the least expensive headers on the market - the coated MSA 6-2 is the best value : https://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic19d/15-6001CH

    Please note that its' 1.5" primary pipes have a much smaller inner diameter than other after-market headers although plenty big enough for a stock or near stock street engine.

     

    *for a street engine, what one needs to release is torque, not top-end power. A 6-2 will do this best and torque is what we use for each gear change and acceleration ; ask yourself how frequently you max out the revs to obtain max power ?
