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! :)

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





280Z Triple Weber 45 - First Start
UPDATE - After 3 months of light use, this engine failed. The rockers kept coming off the posts, and eventually pistons made contact with the valves. 3000$ engine down the drain... stay away from ebay rebuilt engines! New Rebello 3.0L has taken its place - See my other videos.





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. :'(

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 Exhaust.

Nissan Project 370Z vs 1970 Datsun 240Z with RB26 Track Battle! - The Downshift Episode 54
Many months ago, Nissan asked their fans to help them create the ultimate 370Z track car. They called it Project 370Z. To put it to the test, Nissan fans were asked to vote for a challenger to compete against it. They chose a 1970 Datsun 240Z with an RB26 engine transplant built by Gordon MacSwain. On this episode of The Downshift, we head to Las Vegas Motor Speedway for an epic David vs Goliath battle between these two amazing machines. The Downshift appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c...

1970 Datsun 240Z/L28- 7000rpm in first three gears - triple Weber 40DCOEs
Watch for the surprise at the end (!)...didn't get pulled though. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjpmkfdnNvI for the same engine with SU carbs...which is a 1983 F54 L28 w/P90 turbo head, 10:1 compression, 15lb flywheel. The engines sound similar but the Webers have much more torque than the SUs, pull very hard in 1st and 2nd and easily to 7,000 in 3rd. I have a Centerforce 2 clutch now which make changing gears a tick slower compared to my earlier video however. The car is definitely faster through each gear with solid power to redline.

Sunburst 240z | Jonathan Buhler
We had the idea to shoot Jonathan's Z with his fiance modeling in it (which she is shown 2 times in the video), but with them being so busy with college classes and definitely with Jonathan getting ready to graduate prior to this video, we didn't have much time to film what we wanted. We did manage to get some clips shown in the video just because they asked me to do a photo shoot of them. Towards the end of their semester, we finally schedule a last shoot to finish things up, but unfortunately we didn't because of unexpected calls of Jonathan's new job at Nissan. So we agreed to just work with the clips I already have and honestly I think it came out quite beautifully even though it's a small video, but videos don't always have to be long. So here's the Sunburst orange 240z. This gorgeous sunburst orange 240z has been worked on for so long by Jonathan and his dad (I believe this is correct information) and I'm pretty sure they are proud of what they have built up to this point. If you have picked up Modified Magazine's June issue in 2011, you would have seen this car feature along with his beloved Supra. Here's the article from the magazine which you could find here modified.com/features/modp-1106-1973-datsun-240z-1994-toyota-supra-turbo/viewall.html "Jonathan Buhler has car-guy blood in his veins. His father bought this '73 Datsun 240Z back in 1979 from the original owner (the classic first owner tale of a little old lady who only drove it to the corner store and back), and on Jonathan's 15th birthday passed it down to him since it had been collecting dust in the family garage for eight years. Jonathan's other ride, a '94 Supra TT 6-speed, purchased from his uncle in California, recently met a less auspicious end. When starting to restore the family Z, there weren't a lot of well-known sources for S30 parts, but thanks to his local Nissan dealership Jonathan was able to put his Z back in tiptop running condition. But, of course, Jonathan had bigger plans than just a basic resto for his Z. "What you see in these pictures is nowhere near the end for this project, but only time and my college budget will tell when it'll be finished," he says. "It already has a lot of my blood, sweat and tears rolled into it, and I'm particularly proud of the fact that I've kept the original L-series motor in it." No RB or SR swap for this Z purist, and if you've ever heard a modified L24 straight-6 on full song, then you know why Jonathan has decided to keep his in service. As for his ill-fated Supra, Jonathan tells us, "After getting it off the shipping truck, I started modding it with anything I could get my hands on. I tried not to go overboard, though, keeping the body stock and leaving the stock twins in place, instead going for more of the stance look. I guess I hit the spot because my buddy Mike Burroughs from Stanceworks did a blog feature on it. Sadly, last month I was involved in a pretty bad accident and the Supra is no more. This car really meant a lot to me and to see her gone is heartbreaking." Hopefully seeing her one last time on the pages of Modified is a suitable farewell." "Why We Picked It (Modified) One of the all-time great Japanese sports cars, Jonathan Buhler has done a bang-up job restoring and subtly updating the appearance of his 240Z. Although we're partial to the bumperless and fender-flared look when it comes to classic Fairladies, a bit of a motorsports-inspired exterior would go nicely with the roll bar and SCCA-spec SU carbs. It's still tough to fault the clean factory lines and sparking Sunset Orange paint on Jonathan's Z." Check the article on the site. As always, hope you enjoy this small video and thanks for watching!
