1982 Datsun 280zx Camshaft & Valvetrain @ 82,000 Miles
12/17/2011, This just an older video of my Datsun L28E engine. Back in 2009 I needed to replace the original Exhaust on my Z-Car because it was leaking at the cat, Exhaust manifold gasket, and elsewhere in the Exhaust pipe under the car. It was in sad shape. After inspection I found out the last Exhaust manifold bolt next to the firewall was broken off in the aluminum cylinder head. Do not know what the previous owner did or which garage they took this car to, but that owner or mechanic busted off many bolts within the Exhaust system. Since I was "committed" I decided to go the route of a new aftermarket header (Motor Sport Auto) and complete Exhaust system without the cat also from Motor Sport Auto. I also removed the entire Bosch Jet-Tronic EFI system and powder coated all components and installed new injectors, sensors, and fuel and emission hoses. It looks and sounds great. More videos of the finished EFI system and Exhaust system coming soon. Runs great, car is completely stock except the header and open Exhaust, but I'm happy.
