Datsun S30 240Z 3.2 Stroker getting sideways
3.2 stroker motor. Youtube ruined the video quality. This was a HD quality video. Youtube did this to many many of my old videos. Sucks balls.
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. :'(
3.1L 240Z vs. the Ozark Mountains
Some [conservative] horseplay in my 1971 3.1L 240Z before putting my new race motor away for the winter. This is NOT a performance driving video, just some fun on an awesome road. This is first time I've driven the road, so I'm a little more confident after 3:00. (I found it on Google Earth then trailered my car there.) Some highlights, since it's not exactly a concise video: 1:55 downhill stretch, crossing Beaver Lake 2:40 more aggressive driving begins 4:00 scared myself a bit 4:40 traffic encountered 5:00 engine vs. open highway Referenced walk-around video of my L6 motor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=by_gtw18cLo
