Turbo Datsun 240Z strikes again!
Got my transbrake installed in the TH350, And got the car running somewhat decent. This run was at 8psi of Boost. Managed to get a best of 6.7@101mph for the night. But the time slip did not print....
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 4-6 weeks of storage.
Turbo LS1 Datsun 240Z racing
Finally got the new bottom end, TH350 trans, and new BW S400 turbo installed and running. Took it out to the track for some break in runs. 9psi, NO timing, safe AFR. 6.96@103 was best time. Time for some better gas, more Boost, and some Dyno time!
1972 Datsun 240Z V8 Power.
By Miguel Caparros
Yes it has a big V8, but it is the quality of this car that sets it apart. It is subtle enough that you may not notice it. The fender flares that are so well integrated that they look stock, then they flow perfectly to the rocker panel ground effects in a seamless manner. The GTO vents on the fender. It just all works.

Turbo Rat Rod Truck at I-40 Dragway
Footage from first test-n-tune of 2010. This truck is built on a budget with a mostly stock small block Chevy. The turbo is a Borg Warner S400. Runs a 6.18 on this pass, but the truck has run a best of 5.97 in the eighth mile. This could be the worlds fastest rat rod!
