  1. Sorry it took some time around with the CNC machine! Photo mayhem of the forklift action I did: Had my friend helping out with the directions and watching so that I wouldn't hit anything Then the tool cabinet goodies: The machine had internal ROM/RAM battery which ran out during the transportation, so the whole machine had bunch of errors, which I then resolved by reseting the whole thing and applying 900 lines of code into it. I'm glad everything was documented pretty well by the guys who did the conversion: I got the machine jogging and homing today. I will see what I can come up with it later on. So glad I got everything working even tho the programming and everything else was new to me and now the machine feels more like it belongs to the family as I have seen the parameters through and can probably troubleshoot things better later on if something happens!

  15. What is that tiny port head on the bench? I like the factory "antilag" tubes on the exhaust manifold. ๐Ÿ˜„ BTW, sideways jump seat in the back of the Fairlady is so cool. I don't think we got them over here in Oz.

  17. So I bought a brand new Bennington 21 SLX They MSRP just shy of 40k but I got it for 28k. One of the few things the virus was good for is lowering prices. Been on the water all the time as I have no idea how long gas is going to stay at 1.50 a gallon. I know I know the rule is post a pic but honestly I hooked it up to my truck and went straight out to the lave and didn't think about even taking one. Figured since I'm still "tele-working" might as well do it from the water ๐Ÿ˜„

  18. Stick with a non-metallic paint. Simple colors fit the character of these vintage Datsun trucks better than anything flashy. The same green is a great color, but don't you have enough of those in your collection? Maybe time to switch it up.

  23. I have a 1997 Ski Nautique, with 2778.1 hours on it. Here in Oregon, it has been hard to find ethanol free gasoline, so I have been running E-10 since the boat was new. When I drain and change the fuel filter, with E-10, I almost never find any water. My theory, and I cannot prove it. If you switch to E-10 on a boat that has not had E-10, especially on a boat that is not used much, switching to E-10 will cause problems. This is why, I think. If you have a significant amount of water in the fuel tank and you switch to E-10, the alcohol will dissolve in the water, and separate out. The alcohol and water mix going into the engine will mess it up. However, if the amount if water is minimal, compared to the amount of alcohol, the alcohol will dissolve the small amount of water, but still stay dissolved in the gasoline, and then runs through the engine without causing problems. Use fuel stabilizer when you lay the boat up for the winter.

  24. I can but its fuel injected and the mfr recommends e-10 or less. They have both e-10 and no e-free at the dock. I have put in both it really just depends what pump is open as to what I use. The E free is around 2.50 so still cheap.

  35. 2019 $2000 Challenge Recap For me, the Challenge started Wednesday night when I hosted a couple other Challengers on their drive down. Always good to see old friends! Thursday I borrowed Dad's truck, picked up a trailer, and hit the road with my teammate in time to catch the tail end of the parking lot builds. Friday morning, we applied the sticker package and made it through tech inspection, which was a bit lax to be honest. I think the sticker package really suited my livery well! Autocross - 43.380 - 4th place Even though I have been autocrossing this car all year to find and address issues, I never ran it on a full set of Hoosier A7's. I made the decision to go full Purple Crack after realizing how poorly this car autocrosses on a mix of drag radials and A7's. I simply didn't have the budget for an extra set of tires, nor the time/skills/effort to scrounge a cheap enough set of drag tires. I did 3 runs to warm up the tires, getting times in the 45's and 46's. I left the trans in "manual mode - 2" which holds 2nd gear no matter what, which meant banging the rev-limiter on three different sections of the course. It was awesome. Then I handed the duck-taped key to pro driver Robert Lewis, who is an awesome autocrosser and person. He immediately clicked off some 45 and 44 sec runs. On one of the runs, the car just shut off after coming to a stop. This sent me into panic troubleshooting mode, but the car fired back up after a hard start. I think somehow the torque converter was sticking or locking up, allowing the brakes to stall the engine in gear as it came to a stop. Never happened again and thankful for that. After figuring out the best strategy to use the tiptronic shifting, which I don't recall the exact details of, Robert nailed a 44.380 sec on the final run, good enough for 4th place in autocross. FTD was 43.738 from a gutted and beautiful Cadillac CTS-V. I was about 2 tenths behind a crazy turbo rotary-powered Porsche 944. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the performance and happy the car did exactly what I've been training it to do all year without breaking. Feedback from Robert was pretty positive. He said it felt pretty well sorted, though a bit of instability under braking, which helped it rotate or something (I don't really speak autocross fluently yet), and it needed more front camber and possibly more rear sway bar because it was pushing through turns. But otherwise he seemed pretty impressed by it, not only from his verbal feedback but also the giant grin I could see through the windshield after his first run! Drag - 13.109 @ 109 MPH - 9th place Since I committed to running A7's the whole Challenge, drag prep consisted of installing the bottle and airing down the rear tires. I started at 24 psi and worked my way down to 19 psi. I also started with the 75hp jets, which I knew worked for a 13.1xx. And that's exactly what it did, 13.132 at 107.58 MPH on the 75 shot. Definitely traction limited. The tires would spin and the engine rev straight to redline when spraying in 1st or 2nd gear. It was totally fine spraying through the 3-4 shift. After 2 runs, I swapped the jets out for the "trailer spec" shot, 150hp worth of nitrous. The first run was actually slower, because the spinning problem simply got worse. Then I figured out how to modulate the throttle a bit while spraying, then gradually getting back into WOT. 2nd run on the 150 shot was 13.109 at 109.81 MPH, my personal best. It was still spinning tires all over the place though. As I crossed the finish line, the check engine light (normally on at all times) started flashing. Something I've never seen it do before. I pulled into pits and checked it out - in addition to the normal 7 codes it throws, it also had a Cyl #1 misfire. Huh, that's odd. I was pretty satisfied with those times already, so I let it cool off and watched the drags with good company. I told them about my issue, and it was recommended to gap the plugs down for nitrous. With 1 hour of drag racing left, we went back to the car and pulled #1 plug to check its gap. That looks a bit out of spec. Nick and I decided to rush over to the local O'Reillys to pick up a replacement, because it ain't called the $2000 Walk In The Park. They had it in stock, so I bought it, and threw it in the car just in time for one last run on the 150 shot. But only managed a 13.3 with the same traction issues. Oh well, at least we tried! Good enough for I think 9th in the drags, which put me at 3rd in the Dynamic Score, behind the Hong Norr CTS-V and Ed Malle's amazing Mustang GT, both LS powered cars. Concours - 21.66 / 25 - 2nd place This turned out to be my strongest event. I didn't have much of a presentation prepared, I just told the story of the kickoff build party weekend and which parts were from what on the car. I pulled a fender off and mounted it on my custom fender concours display stand, made from a minivan brake rotor and scrap tubing. This showed off the boundaries between Datsun, Infiniti, and Insanity (stuff fabbed by me). That winter of widebody welding, the weeks of bondo sanding, the fiddling with paint and sprayer settings, and the weeks of wetsanding and buffing really paid off and showed for themselves. Concours score was 21.66, 2nd place behind Wreck Racing's 22.5, which was very well-earned. There were some amazing looking cars this year. Overall - 1st place! My most prized possession and now living room focal point. Stampie builds one helluva trophy. Thanks for reading along! I have no idea what the future holds for this car, but in the short term, I at least want a 12 sec quarter mile on proper drag tires ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. Well, there it is, in the parking lot at work. Started driving the car on Tuesday and drove it all week. As ready as I cold be I jumped in in the morning and hoped to make my 15 mile or so commute. Luckily Cruise was pretty good but my idle started to develop a wicked oscillation once warmed up. Watch my AFR's I kept the rev's pretty low and limped along with autotune running. The only real issue being having to throttle up the rev.s at stops. Jeff was nice enough to go on a lunch break tune cruise. We were able to get the idle dialed pretty quickly whuch made the car much more driveable. However moving up in the rev.s was met with some unexpected cut outs. Some post cruise data log analysis showed that there were some erroneous rev limit and over boost protection settings that were causing some safety ignition retards to kick in. (I took this shot because it was the first time I noticed the intercooler tucked away in there, I've only ever been able to stand a few feet in fornt of the car in my shed and that doesn't let you see the full frontal very well. I like the way this ended up, nice and secluded. ๐Ÿค—) Hunting down little tune tweaks here and there throughout the week and the car is now very driveable in the cruise and low rpm regions. Very smooth and quite enjoyable after the 521. However, I'm still chasing a couple major isssues. As the car warms up I am getting fuel pressure drop which results in lean condition under boost, this makes the driving anything but spirited and is starting to get frustrating as I run out of trouble shooting avenues. Anyone who followed my short lived GTIR thread may recognize that this is the exact behavior that I was getting with that car and resultsed in it sitting in my driveway with a melted piston... Luckily here I have an AFR and EGT gauge to keep a tab on things and hopefully avoid that situation. The fuel pump slowly gets louder and idle fuel pressure drops form 40 to 30 psi as the car warms up. Can't wait to get this sorted because the car feels like it will be super fun when it's dialed โ˜บ๏ธ Video eventually.

  37. Been a minute since I been in here, but good news! the engine finally fired up! I saw how wrong I wired my can am box then got it rewired correctly and saw my mistake. I was splicing directly into the engine harness instead of using f9 and the other gray plug plug wires Thanks to icehouse For his patience and knowledge. And to the electrical guy who showed me what I did wrong lol. Iโ€™ll be posting pics of the progress tomorrow. Got to do a few things while the whole crazy rainy days where happening. Having no indoor space sucks on rainy days thatโ€™s for sure. Heres one one thing that got done exhaust manifold egr pipe plug. I donโ€™t know how to weld. But got some good practice on this ๐Ÿ˜‚
