Calling all those interested,

Im building a zed in its final design scope.

General notes;

- Street car, Warrant Of Fitness/registration
- R34 Neo turbo engine, GT3040R, water/air intercooling etc
- Programmable ECU, traction control, ABS even?
- Complete R34 rear subframe, LSD, toe/camber adjustable, big brakes etc. Increase track 150mm+
- Large piston front struts, big brakes etc, adjustable roll centre,camber,more castor, increase track 140mm+
- Power steering
- Full cage, to front struts
- Full interior, sound deadening,music
- Plenty of custom mods
- 18x9.5" 265/35 rears etc.
- NO DODGY BODYKITs either !!

The car will not be the fastest, best looking, tidiest zed out there.
I understand that it can be considered 'butchering' to some.
But should be OK for a comment or even critique.

Progress is underway.

If the club is keen to see (about) weekly updates and pics, Im happy to oblige.
I can give some tech notes as to whats going on, why, and hassles to avoid if someone is to do something similar.

thanks
martin

Welcome to the forum Martin, we're always keen to see another Zed monster in the making. Very Happy

As you're in Auckland you should come along to some of the meets and shoot the breeze with the Zedheads, you might find a few of the crew might be able to help with advice too, having built up some impressive Zeds. Cool If you're looking to race the beaZt once she's finished, we are a MANZ affliated club so for paid up members can help be very useful for race licences etc. Wink

We've got a tech night on Saturday night that might be helpful for you too, with your project in mind. Cool Very Happy

Look forward to seeing some progress photos. Cool

Martin,

I think you know your post is rhetorical.......

Your car has already been spotted out at the "XCVBNB" Febrication Shop so it is already generating interest.

If you have the time to share then we are all interested.

Cheers

Glenn

Hello 外国人

as I posted in your forsale thread - I spotted your zed in a certain workshop the other day and it looks like it is going to be a great project. There are becoming more and more RB power S30 around these days, Australia, US, Europe, here and even in Japan. As you say it might upset some but it is still a Nissan inline 6 so that is ok in my book.

Nissan engineers also wanted a connection between the RB and older L6 engines this is why they share the same bore spacing as one of the design engineers wanted to have a connection to the famous and long lived (and successful) 'L-gata' that he also was involved with. The connection between the two engine is such that they even share the same head bolt spacing/pattern. The RB engine also looks like it retains a connection to another successful Nissan in-line 6 the S20 engine. They have a very similar looking water pump, oil pump and block shape - there is pic of the S20. These engine were used in the first Skyline GT-R aka KPGC10 and also in the Fairlady Z 432 and Fairlady Z 432-R

Okidoki,

Gajin will begin the photo posting and tech notes from here.
I hope I can provide the longest, most technically interesting forum for the zed people

I have been reviewing the Hugo 240z (see you tube vids, great rock too)
he has something similar, with numerous differences to fabrication, especially the rear subframe install.
I will note these differences as I go along.

The certain workshop has been great, professional, fast, calm, open to discuss good and bad ideas.
I am no longer available for any wrench turning myself with current medical issues.

I see this as a great thing for the project (=PROGRESS) and a poor thing for finances (vacuum cleaner).

Love the S30 S20 pics, a fantastic engine. Hugely capable engine, huge revs, the great destroyer, even in twin cam, 4 cyl option (P610) Sorry different engine again that was a special head installed on to the L4 bottom end known as the LZ - it can get confusing :edited by nzeder.




Anyways, here it is after a RHD conversion, both rear quarters, outerwheel arches, floor repairs, dove tail, sills, ready for a stock L24 numbers matching, go-slow car. Completed in my garage over 18 months by author at nights, while misses was pregnant.
Time to get serious?

外国人 (gaijin in Japanese for those that have not worked that out yet - and google gaijin if you don't know what it means but I am sure most would have at least seen Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift to know the meaning)

Project Hugo is something else alright - did you see all that rust, at least your body (car that is, sorry to hear about your "current medical issues" to quote you) is a better starting point that what Mull started with.

I could do a sim thread but given my car has taken 10 years so far I don't think members will wait that long, hell I have almost given up Embarassed

With regard to the rear install I recall reading on, one of the many zed forums, hybridz I think, about using a combo of R32, S14, Z32 rear suspension parts to make the track a little narrower to aid in the installation into the rear of the S30 chassis.

Also I edited you above post to correct the S30 statement to change to S20 the Nissan engine not the S30 which is of cause the chassis code for the 240z/260z/280z/Fairlady/432

I learnt what Gaijin meant by reading Clavell's "Shogun" rather than watching tokyo drift (haven't seen the first movie yet Razz)


Are those S20 pics off the ebay auction?

you are good (not ebay by yahoo.co.jp) Wink and at $32K and still 6 hours to go - but then again if you compare this to a BDA then it is a fair price. When I win Lotto I will be flying to Japan with a friend who speaks Japanese and I will purchase a genuine Fairlady Z 432

But for now lets just watch, the only way we can afford to make a sort of 432 with RB engines. Will be watching this thread to see Martin's progress.

Re the Gaijin if you know Japanese given our location you learn that one fast.

Enter the incompleted
Pull out L24 powertrain
strap on the rear subframe to trailer
send the lot over to Herberts Fabrication in Auckland NZ.



Had done more work on the fairlady over the next while, but the workshop location and work pressures made spending time difficult.
Time to enlist help.



Is it wrong to sell the matching numbers drivetrain to anyone?
Hmmm, soul removed, check.



thanks to salty for the trailer use. To easy
