  1. Here's a nice B-25 that I captured inside the flight deck of the Yorktown back in 2019. It was undergoing restoration work at the time, but I hear she's finished and flying now. Yorktown B25 Bomber by Matt Yates, on Flickr
  2. All is well here. Life has been so busy in the past few years that the internet has been the last thing on my mind. Haven't had a Datto since 2015, but I've been around them ever since. Met Peter Brock and John Morton, hell I've even bad dinner with John Morton and his lady. I've been casually watching for nice projects for sale on the east coast the last few months. Hoping maybe the right one will pop up one day soon. I'll try to drop in more often. I miss you fuckers
  3. ATL here, not active and barely on in this phase of my life though 😂
  4. Maybe I missed, what engine is going to power this thing? Guessing by the ECU it'll be KA or VG.
  5. What the hell I decided not to go to Gridlife this weekend, now I feel like I need to go haha
  6. Seems like you would be better off selling it and buying another 620.
  7. Following. Excited to see how this turns out.
  8. Yep, that sounds like it had great potential to limit you on power. Consider ditching that chambered muffler in the future for a packed muffler or resonator. There's a reason literally every aftermarket exhaust for VQ cars uses packed muffler over chambered, they love to breathe.

  10. Is the muffler chambered or glass-packed? As long as MAF housing diameter is stock you should be good. If you were to ever change MAF diameter, you have to tune to re-scale the MAF. You can probably get away with doing the 'ol brake parts cleaner trick to find vacuum leaks, spray it around the surfaces and listen for changes to idle.
  11. Even a tired autotragic on our dyno is usually around 220whp stock, if you're feeling that underpowered you have a problem somewhere. What's your exhaust situation? 2.5'' dual? Are you using the stock MAF housing? I'd check for vacuum leaks between the upper and lower plenum as well, pretty common place to see a leak if the plenums have been separated.
  12. psh that junker is badass 😂 seems like an even trade.
  13. Ahhh forgot about that. Let me know when you get to that point, I may be able to help you a little bit there. A whole $58 😂 Can probably manage something 😃
  14. *ahem* we actually make a part for that. Can I donate one to you so you can get rid of that super sketch fuel tap? https://www.z1motorsports.com/z1-products/z1-motorsports/z1-motorsports-vq-fuel-port-p-9160.html
  15. Very interesting. I've had similar experiances with other brands of wrinkle black, I 'was' going to use it on my motorcycle frame (cafe project) but was unsure how it would turn out. Everything I tested came out like crap, yours seemed to turn out really well. I'm going to snag a can of the Krylon stuff and give it a shot when we have another hot Atlanta day.
  16. What wrinkle black did you use on the valve cover?
  17. Time Left: 3 days and 1 minute

    1 Set of BRAND NEW Genuine Nissan short stalk fender mirrors. I've had these on my shelf for a little while, but after selling my 240Z won't be needing them any longer. They are still in original Nissan boxes (shown) and can ship anywhere in the US.

  18. That's a VQ40/GTR oil filter. All I use on a VQ. It'll be interesting to see how she does.
  19. It almost reminds me of the Infiniti Iridium Blue that they use on the new Q50 and Q60's. I planned on using that blue on my Cafe Racer.
