1970 Datsun 240Z/L28- 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.

Dare to Be Different in a Datsun 240Z
Owner Dave Scholz, shares his connection with a Japanese cult classic that could easily be regarded as the 911 of Japan. Its iconic beauty, modular mechanics, and desirability inspired Dave to heed to Datsun's famous racing campaign of the '70s, "Dare to be different." American heads spun when the 1970s ultimately snuffed out their beloved horsepower-drunk muscle cars. As the world watched them squirm for performance, Japan was busy developing the 240Z to bring a new thrill to American roads using balance, harmony, and technology. "Datsun didn't invent the overhead cam engine, or disc brakes, or independent suspension but it has a habit of incorporating these sophisticated systems into brilliantly conceived and easily affordable cars."
