    SR20DE which one is the 160hp version?

    Just buy a full S14 swap off eBay. They are about 1500 bucks and come complete with ecu and wiring. That’s what we did in our enduro car. Building one from the ground up is going to cost some dollars.
  2. Me and the guys at work just used a set on our racecar (drums are a bad idea on a enduro car just for the record) You can just call them up and order them direct. I think they are around 80 bucks for the rear shoes. I seem to remember all four corners of my car shipped costing less then 200 shipped. I get there street compound.
  3. I’ve just always smacked the dust ring off with a chissle and a hammer. Doesn’t take long. Although I’ve only done the upgrade on sedans. How did the drum fit with the AC Delco shoes? All the local auto parts stores sell shoes that don’t fit! I thought I was loosing my touch. Then I decided to order some fancy shoes from Porterfield, wow they fit perfect. No customization requires.

    Who recalls this old school set up?

    The VQ is tall. Wonder how it fit.

    Fj20et Dizzy Modded For S14 Ecu

    I just picked up a FJ. Any reason you couldn’t swap to coil packs that fit the FJ valve cover? Awesome write up! I want to put mine in my sunny.

    Bump steer spacers...

    Paradime is right! You are playing with fire. Moving suspension points is tricky business. Even adding caster will mess with bump steer. When me, Frank and Dillion had our little shop usually the cars that drove the worst had the most suspension "goodies". Most aftermarket parts have "adjustment" which requires the installer to take care while installing them. The adverage dude doesn't want to do a bump graph or study suspension. Can't blame them. Just remember everything you change will have an effect on the steering feel and handling.

    Feng Shui (The 510 Experiment)

    Same here! It's cool to have the 510 drive as good as it looks!

    Diff pinon angles.

    I'm not sure it would feel like a 510 without some vibrations and rattles.

    KA24DE vs SR20DET realistic price of swap

    When I weighted the L18 vs. the SR20DE they were less then 30lbs different and the L was missing some parts like the carbs and had the small stock alternator which everyone upgrades and stock starter. So reslly the L series really isn’t much lighter if at all. Check out the weight thread I started. The amazing part to me is a VQ is only 100 lbs heavier then a L18!!!
  11. Yeah that’s what I want. That exact thing. That’s why I posted a picture. Figured I would say it wrong.
  12. The bearing isn’t flush with the bottom of the top hat so a standard Coilover top won’t work. California Datsun is that bad?? It needs the extra boss on the top to fit in the stock bearing. I’ll do some more measuring and let you know.
  13. Working on a buddies 260z. We are converting to Coilovers but don’t want to change the upper spring perches. I found these but not sure if they will sell them separately. I’ve done a bunch of searching. Seems most people just stack washers. I’d like to avoid that. You can see the top hat in the photo is taller so it will reach the stock bearing.

    Feng Shui (The 510 Experiment)

    That’s good to hear. I still can’t believe how far that car has came! Unbelievable really. I still remember sliding it onto the trailer with no suspension. Can’t wait to go for a ride!!!
  15. Test...... posting a picture from my phone.
