This is the build thread for my 1978 Datsun 280Z "S30" Terbeaux.

I will be updating it as I go along.

Used to look like this:



Now it looks like this:

Slight update.

I didn't have any work or anything this weekend and Arkansas played an early game today so I pulled my charge pipes off to paint them.

I ordered some new injector drivers on Friday from DIYAT, they should come in early next week.

Here are some pictures:

Your rear struts are so long. pimpslap

I like how simple the suspension pieces are. The Datsun engineers were like screw triangles, weld some squares together with flat steel on top, less angles to cut.

A serious question though: The picture with the rear control arms/hubs, is one upside-down?

lol Good eye!

Datsun engineers are not only smart but savvy - make one LCA with centred angles, flip it, and it's a mirror image with only one press needed cheers

So, yes, one is upside-down, but they are interchangeable.

Thanks Nick.

I've got to:

* Figure out the reset issue
* Fix the wideband or buy a new sensor
* Tune
* Turn up the boost to 10 psi
* Moar tune

THEN I'll be ready to go to Mokan Very Happy

I'm really liking my max IATs of 70* so it's about time for moar boost

I blew off an IC coupler yesterday on the way home from Harassing Zach at Best Buy.

I had to tighten down at least 3 couplers, I have worm gear clamps on there now, I need to upgrade to The T-Clamp ones soon.

Luckily MegaSkeet is MAP based so I got home with no problem. Only made 4 lbs of boost though :/
