Silver Zed Update II

#1 Post by MikeC » Thu Nov 24, 2016 11:17 pm

Dale has been busy.

Now that the red Zed is finally all fixed and running, we can finally move onto this progrect that stalled a year or so ago. :)

Work started a week or so ago, just waiting for a delivery of few more parts.

Dale had some space in his workshop

Image

You guys might remember the car

Image

YUP needs something

Image

First Need some shiny parts and gaskets (even though Nissan does not bother) and specially modified water pipe that we do on all the Zed engines now.

Image

And some parts from Concept Z Perf

Image

And some anodised parts and new fancy wastegate actuators (adjustable spring dual port)

Image

Lots of connectors and the cams specs we used to dial in the fancy cams- any guesses?

Image

Some goodies from Brett Dempsey (really nice engine mounts) which allows the intake pipes from the turbos to clear without modifying the engine mounts.

Image

Some new covers

Image

Cant get the bottom cover any more so paint the old one.

Image

Some more goodies from BDE (VTC gears, yes you can use VCT gears with aftermarket solid cams, but you do need to remove the plugs from them that they put in. New VCT activators as they flog out with age and leak junk out.

Image

Lin cam and dialed in the cams but forgot to take another photo. He looks the same as he did in the Red Z photo :)

Any questions just ask

Plumbing water and oil to the turbos is nearly finished and then trial fittment - cross fingers!!

Apart from that it is looking very 8)

That is my mechanics workshop. He would not be happy if I referred more 300ZX's so I don't. :)
