    I have a complete ignition system that I removed from my truck . All is in good working condition . Newer NGK wires with newer coils , cap and rotor. Maybe a year of running time on these parts . Also have an extra dizzy . Asking 150$ for the ignition package including the extra dizzy . 20$ for the fuel door from a 84 Please email me if interested sfinnerty1018@gmail.com

  5. I hate getting blinded by cheap LEDs that aren’t properly focused . On my Z I went with Cibie lens and relays because my 71 didn’t have relays . The lights are equivalent to by 2017 VW lights . The lens makes all the difference and how the bright light is focused . I would not consider LEDs unless there was a proven lens that works with it
  6. My 83 has the z24 . With factory wheel size it’s quite zippy - even with the 3.90 gear set. Maybe you also have the same gear set which can be soggy with larger tires . I plan in a turbo eventually once I get my EFI dialed in . The lack of power comes in to play on the highway which I hope the turbo with supplement my power and avoid a bunch of downshifting on hills
  7. It’s in the glove box - you probably couldn’t tell from that pic

    I actually was thinking of starting a 0-60 thread . It is actually a ballpark indicator of how the truck runs . Not for bragging rights , but for some real world perspective . Folks have commented that my 3.90 gear on a 4WD drive would be soggy , but it really isn’t . How would I compare to another truck that was tuned ? I did this with my Z . How do most production cars get compared ? 0-60 times. You think you Does the 38/38 really give you added hp? Or just a grunt of torque for a second but gulping the fuel
  10. Eventually I will get a grommet . Doubt the plastic hole will do much damage . I’ve taped everything up . I needed to be able to pull it out to work on it so a grommet would have made that harder
  11. IT RUNS! She tested my troubleshooting skills . Had a wire with a nick in it laying on a bare shielding wire that was shorting my coolant sensor wire -jesh. Quite sure I will have to work some kinks out . I already have a coolant leak to deal with and it’s in a bad spot around the thermostat housing . Also will need to get a tune saved that runs good . Drove it around the block a few times , but even with no real time it ran decent .
  12. Well I took my new cable that was too short and gave it to a talented friend that welded/brazed/soldered the end of one to the other and got me the length I needed . Had a hard time getting the engine to run . I swapped my injectors from my z(26lbs) with the ones that were in the truck (44lbs) and bingo it ran. I have to dial it in and find the big vacuum leak .
  13. It’s also about the ends . I might have done better with the 200sx , but it’s all a guess . And if I search 200sx cables , the web comes up with 720 cables
  14. About wired up . I still have to install fuel pump . I still don’t have a throttle cable. I talented shop owners says he can lengthen the cable . The cable for the hardbody I ordered was super short , but it will sacrificed to make a longer cable . There’s probably one that right size out there but won’t have the correct ends . It’s hard to get an appreciation of the plumbing spaghetti that happens under this intake . Between radiator hoses , ps steering hoses , coolant return lines and throw in a AC hose makes it pretty busy under there and makes this job tougher . It was brought to my attention that there is a coolant manifold to handle all the returns with this induction set up , but I ended up using just a T. Hopefully that won’t come back to haunt me . Other notes are that the mounting hardware is all different . This manifold is thicker than the carb manifold . You probably noticed how close the TB is to the radiator hose . I had to fight for every millimeter to get a 90 to fit on the TB and clear the hose . To run a tube across to a filter will be close too. It will barely clear the PS pulley. This whole project would be so much easier without PS . I had to move the pump to reach one of the manifold bolts . Im hoping to have it started tomorrow after I swap out a bad fuel pump . Still might not have a throttle cable so I can drive it
