I did these videos several years ago. I had previously only put them up on
my photobucket account and then on Ratsun.net. I just came across them
again, so I thought I'd combine them and post them to youtube. Not sure
about the vid quality from the old camera, but it should still be helpful.
Further tune up info I posted on Ratsun a few days ago

360HP STAR ROAD DATSUN FAIRLADY S30Z WALKAROUND
Come and take a closer look at Star Road's insane L28 powered S30Z Fairlady
that is literally the perfect mix of both the old and new schools. I walk
you around the car, showing you the immense amounts of detail that have
gone into it. It is currently developing a screaming naturally aspirated
360hp, revs to 8000rpm and includes one of the most impressive engine bays
you will ever see including a special custom carburettor/injection setup
that is monitored by MoTec engine management and a full Defi system.
You would struggle to find a better modern take on a classic like the
Fairlady anywhere else on the planet.

600+hp Datsun dyno session
series of Dyno pulls,
with a best of 607 hp
This was the first Dyno session where my car
exceeded 600hp to the wheels. The runs were performed at Motor City
Motorsports in Riverview, MI on a Dynojet 248C (yes it was
calibrated properly). The backfires at the end of some of the pulls were
just from the rev limiter's 8000rpm fuel cut - this introduces unburned
oxygen into the Exhaust and burns any
previously unburned fuel from the rich mixture prior to hitting the fuel
cut. The engine is a stroked Nissan L-series, 3.0 litres with Diamond
custom forged pistons and Cunningham rods. the head is an N42 with a fair
amount of port and combustion chamber work,- ceramic coatings on the
pistons, chambers and ports. Also has a custom cam grind from Elgin. The
turbo is a GT42R with a 1.15AR hot side
and a 4" Exhaust that exits through
twin 3" oval pipes on either side in fron of the rear wheels. Fuel
injection is a Electromotive TEC3r, and I did all of the tuning myself.
There's a lot more, but that should give an idea as to what's in the car.
no water or meth injection
94 octane Sunoco pump gas

3.1L 240Z triple weber carb tuning (w/ new Stahl headers)
A collection of short clips / butt Dyno runs while tuning the
triple Webers on my 3.1L 240Z. Open Exhaust. Unfortunately, I didn't have the
benefit of an O2 sensor / AFR. All in all, I was pretty pleased with the
final results, the new headers have really opened up the head's flow
potential. Sounds good, too! :)
