  1. Madkaw, hello. My name is Steve. I live close to you, in fact, Camp Atterbury main gate is damn near in my back yard. My son and I are working on 77 2+2.. I have a million of questions to ask you. the 77 has the original l 28 in it but will be replacing it with complete drive train out of a 82 zx that i am in the process of rebuilding it. I will be using a megasquirt 3 fuel management system. and a complete Schneider 274f cam kitfor it. My question for now is i need to no how much I can mill from the head and not need to shim the cam towers? I am looking for 9 to 9.5 cr.  I plan to use regular pump gas. I'm not wanting a race car but a car to take a cross country. I am in my golden years being I turn 68 in October. I will be sending out the head out shortly to have the valves ground. any and all adviceis welcomed.  Thank you!

  2. Thanks, Mark. Maybe I should check with Madkaw since he is only 40 miles away. I believe he is running a Megasquirt 3.
  3. Mark, on your car did you did you delete your afm or air box on it? I will be using a Megasquirt 3 eventually. I noticed no afm. Are you using the megasquirt system? I'm still a month away from building my '82 F54 with a '77 n47 head. what headaches will I be se
  4. Dang Wheee! I was 54 in the Army inn Iraq in '08. I was medevaced and spent another 17 months in the hospital, before being medically retired
  5. Mike I see the new system doesn't number the responses now. It's impossible to reference a previous response by the number if you don't have the number. Thanks!
  6. Mike I noticed you have Bender back. Also where is your and Conedodger's boob thread?
  7. 26th-Z, the JVC you mentioned is a double din radio according to Crutchfield and they say it doesn't fit. I am a novice on the newer radios, Now if they were a 70's or 80's radio, then I never had any problem installing those. But alas, that was 30 plus years ago. any help you could give me will be appreciated. Thank you. By the way I have a '77 280Z.
  8. I worked as a Quality Control Technician in an OEM exhaust and muffler factory ( Arvin and later ArvinMeritor) and have seen mufflers not properly spot-welded and the internals coming undone, usually operator error or spot-welder improperly adjusted.
  9. Looking good,Grannyknot! I am curious whether Fastenal has kits already made up for are Z's or do you have a list to share? Curious minds wish to know.
  10. Dang Sean, I believe I may have been more patience for longer. You didn't offer me a substantial discount. Hey guys, Sean and Zstory have a great header/exhaust system.
