Datsun 280Z - 3.1L Stroker Starts - New Jets

Here is a new video of the Z starting. I got the jetting worked out and the ITG's on. I took it for it's first successful drive tonight. That video will be up shortly.

untuned and unmuffled idle, 240Z 3.1 stroker
Quick demo of the new race headers (Stahl), at no point does the engine rev above 3k rpm (despite how it sounds at 1:25). Other coincident upgrades include titanium valve spring retainers, single valve springs (outer springs only) that the cam was profiled for, and a crank/damper/flywheel balance for 10,000 rpm. And yes, that's coolant on the ground during the idle portion. Evidently I didn't tighten one of the thermocouple housings all the way. Oops. Between moving and other logistical challenges, I barely had the time to get the new race motor installed and minimally operational before sticking it back in the trailer for 6 months of storage, after which the engine seized. :'(





Datsun 240z - Meeting the Legend - Everyday Driver Review
The guys have driven many Z cars, but never an original 240z. Long-time viewer James offered up his in-progress 1973, and the guys drove it hard down a favorite LA backroad. Meeting heroes can be precarious, but this was worth it. Subscribe for Videos on Thursdays!

Datsun 280Z w/ L28 3.1L Stroker and Triple Webers
Here is a short video of the Z starting. Just got the idle working right tonight where before it wouldn't idle down. Throttle response is good though it goes lean. I have new jets coming to solve that issue. Sorry for the crappy video. Can't find the cable I needed and so I had to use some 3rd party app to rip it. For whatever reason, it didn't do widescreen.





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.
