  1. Sure, you have my contact information. Let me know if you want the air pump and the original hoses off that as well. Talk soon.
  2. 72 240Z with SUs question. Look at pic and let me know if I can throw away part 1. Does anyone have a good way to cap off 2? Afraid it will screw up expected airflow. Thanks!
  3. So I have taken off the old header and it weighed quite a bit. I was a bit surprised. So the new header does not have connections for smog and also does not have the connection for the air filter. Do I take off the air pump and all the other misc equipment since I can't use it anymore? Pics below.
  4. Thanks AK for the laundry list of things. I received the MSA header and exhaust today. I also received the resonator I ordered. I will post pics when I get into it. Most likely late next week. I should be able to get the header on but will have to go to a local shop to cut and weld the resonator on. One thing I do not have is welding tools or the skill to do that. Thanks for all the help.
  5. Nice pic with the snow. Going to be 50+°F here in Texas. @jfa.series1 I am up in the Allen area so let me know where the club meets and I will try to make it. I have a few things to work out on the car before I feel safe driving it far from my house. I have to figure out the smog/air pump stuff as Ztherapy will remove the holes and since it will be a few months until I get the carbs I have to figure out how to tune the SUs. The MFA header does not come with the holes for the smog equipment anyway. Right now I have more airflow to one than the other SU and the car does not run as good as it should. This car has had 1K miles put on it over the last 10 years so it has been sitting quite a bit. I have already removed the old fuel as step one. I checked compression and it seems pretty good as well.
  6. Thanks for the great information. Since I live in TX and it does get very hot here I think I will go with the ceramic MSA. I do love the looks of the SS though. Below are some pics of the car. 75K documented miles and first owner had car until 2012. Original window sticker and all service documentation throughout history of car. Next is on to Ztherapy SU carbs. Called them and they are booked out until June.. Geez they must be busy. Couple pics of the car below.
  7. I have picked up a very original 72 240 and the header and exhaust are rusted pretty bad. I want to replace but have questions. If you had a choice to go with the MSA ceramic system or the zstory street stainless system which would you choose? The MSA ceramic says it will be cooler by 40%. MSA being cheaper is a plus. MSA https://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic19d/15-6001CH Thermal Coating:This header comes with a highly durable and effective Aerospace Thermal Barrier Ceramic or TBC coating, which is good up to 1300 degrees fahrenheit. The satin "polished" silver finish coats both the inside and outside of the header. This does a number of things. First, it cuts radiated heat by approximately 40%. Not only does this help to keep your under hood rubbers and plastics from drying out, it also lowers the temperature of the fuel and air which translates into increased performance.
