(Part 3) FAIRLADY Z MONSTER 3.1 TRIPPLE MIKUNI CARBIES
CAR is at Edward Lee's Japanese Auto Centre phone 0297440539
1976 Fairlady Z S30 3.1 Stroker L28 with tripple Solex/Mikuni carbie setup,
electronic ignition, overfenders, 15 inch Watanabies
240Z burnout (3.1 stroker)
A decent burnout with a taste of the car's sound at idle. Very quiet
muffler in general [Magnaflow], but it does allow the car to open up,
especially if you're pegging the rev limiter...
My 240z on the dyno at Z bash
BTW i have an update video with the 3.1L installed. Just search "240z 3.1L
Stroker (Beta Build)"
I put down a max of 130.5rwhp and torque at about 135ish. L24 tripple 44s
1971 Datsun 240Z Weber triples.mov
From a set of junk Webers, cleaned, mounted, and tuned (sort of)...pretty
happy considering the "voodoo magic" reputation these have and the fact I
have never worked with them before.
Datsun 280Z - 3.1L Stroker - First drive with new jets
Well, this is the first drive with the new jets in. The progression
circuit was causing trouble before. My idle jets were too small causing the
progression circuit to lean out. Remember: Just because it's CALLED an
idle jet doesn't mean it only controls idle. The other thing is that the
idle mixture screws don't affect the progression circuit, so if your idle
jets are too small, there is no getting around buying new ones.
Now it runs rich, though from here I have a ballpark to start tuning. It's
presently got 135 mains, 185 air correction, 60F9 idle jets.
240Z 3.1L Bore L28 Triple Carb Dyno Run --- 181.7rwhp
http://www.zsport.com -- Datsun 240Z with 3.1L Bore L28 Triple Carbs on our
Dynapack System at Z Sport Racing. Also has good sized SSR Longchamp
wheels, those are hard to come by in wider sizes with negative offsets!
Triple Weber DCOE's Launch
An old clip of my race prepped high compression L28, during testing with my
45mm DCOE's After a summer of tuning, I determined that my set of 40mm
DCOE's were the best match, and the car was 3 tenths of a second quicker
0-60 with them.
Datsun 240Z RB25DE with ITB's First Start!
This is just a short vid of my 240 with an RB25 & throttle bodies first
start with surprisingly no leaks! Just needs an Exhaust though..enjoy

2.8L Triple Webers
Just a little fun video. 1st part is during a cruise thru The Valley of
Fire near Las Vegas, the 2nd part was shot to show the Exhaust sound and LACK of valve train noise...
