  1. Thanks ,good tips. For the record my 73 240z FSM shows "rear axle bearing lock nut" at 181-239 ft-lb
  2. Is there any change in the fitment process, are the final torque figures the same as 240 or 280zx FSM?
  3. There's this from Australia https://www.viczcar.com/forum/topic/15125-l24-stroker-build/
  4. I would think you'd want around a 70/30 split front/rear? Definitely not ''all four tires contributing to stopping equally''. I think most will find a 50/50 bias very scary!
  5. I believe they used an Australian RB30 crankshaft, 90mm stroke, 90mm bore on a sonic tested L28 block (rare), Honda sized rods due to crank journal sizes, Stuart Wilkins Motorsport big bore headers and also a custom flywheel as the rear of the crankshaft is thinner altering the flywheel clutch position. It's a little over 3.4L.
  6. Hi Sean, these are the dimensions measured roughly, excuse the diagram. Might be suitable as a big bore option for your line of exhausts. Reinhard stopped selling them separately after I got this in 2013. A few Aus guys tried buying them but they would only sell the entire system.
  7. I run 3" mandrel bent all the way to the rear then split it into twin 60mm at the Reinhard muffler. It must get fairly warm, the tips changed colour after the first track day. Not sure what the flow rates are when comparing 3" with twin 60mm.
  8. The picture of the red 240z above is the stainless system from Reinhard Japan. It's twin 60mm from the headers all the way through, twin 60mm rear muffler too.
  9. Look foward to the progress. It'll be snappy!
  10. The ebay rods by max speeding, spool etc are all the same. From having used both I can tell you the short ebay L28 rods measured at 615 grams +/- 1.2 grams and were only 130.3mm long. The DSI rods are 139.5mm long, they measured at 500 grams and all were within less than 0.5 grams. In a high spec engine every bit helps, especially with quick revs. Compare the DSI piston/rod combo to the shorter Ebay rods, 690 grams less for the DSI rods alone. Then there's the DSI pistons, a 3.4kg flywheel. Things really start to add up then. I'm not saying the ebay rods are garbage, mine served their purpose without fault but It all comes down to your build spec. From what I can see a lot of the DSI rod & piston offerings look very similar to Kameari. To get back on topic, Diseazd do you know if Eiji sonic tested the block?
  11. Very interested to see what it does also! I have the same bits in bottom end, bit of extra crank work and a worked P90 shaved 2.4mm. The ebay rods are not the same as DSI. There is a big weight difference.
  12. Got my parcel today. Thanks Chas, they look excellent!!!
  13. You'll get voltage drops using the factory harness without a relay, so much you can actually hear the pump speed up and slow down when the indicators come on/off. Ask me how I know, ! Lower voltage means more current draw which may shorten the life of the pump. It'll also alter the flow rate.
  14. I tried the Carter pump, but removed it due to the noise. It's like someone is using a hammer drill on the underside of the car! I switched to a Pierburg many years ago, It's been faultless on road and track. Pierburg roller cell pump, 1.9 litres per minute @ 3 psi running at 13.8 volts 2.0 amps and supports up to 340hp.
  15. Read my first digital issue, very happy I got this and at a great price too! Thanks
