Hi, first time poster here, I found copper flakes in my oil last week, despite having no rod knock. Car seemed to be running fine when I did the oil change. I was wondering if because I found out my bearing was going bad before it had "spun", should I try and attempt to just replace the bearing, whether it was main or rod, and move on? or should I just be looking for a new engine entirely. I took it to a shop for them to look it, and they quoted me at like 6500 at the high-end for repairs. I'm assuming that that's if the damage is extremely bad and pistons/block need to be resurfaced? I don't know where to go from here, so any advice is welcome. Thank you!
Hello, this is my first topic and I would like some help on my current project. I recently bought a 71’ 240z and I am planning on engine swapping an L28 w/ 4 speed that I also plan to turbo in the near future. I have a couple questions. 1. What driveshaft would I use for this conversion. Would I use a 240z driveshaft or should I use the 280z driveshaft? (I’m not sure if my Z is series 1 or 2 at the moment) 2. When turbo charging an NA L28 what components should I upgrade and what additional parts do I NEED. I’m on a tight budget so don’t tell me I need the most expensive parts. (Have a $1500-$2000 budget for the engine)
