Fairlady Z Build Updates
Today I thought I would update the couple of guys subscribed to my channel
with an update on the car. I just had it painted so I thought it was about
due for another video.
Updates in this video,
New Paint in Gloss
More updates are still to come.
I have bought a new centre console and gear shift boot, and a whole lot
more, but for today, take a look at the new gloss Hiroshima Screama.
Check out my new online blog for regular photos and news updates.

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

Datsun 240Z Restoration Project
Slideshow of restoration project for a one-owner 1971 Datsun 240Z. This is
a Series 1 car with a build date of 12/70. It has a 1st-gen. BRE "Spook"
on the front, used only in 1970 competition. Light cosmetic mods, pure
1972 Datsun 240Z run. (One last good time before I sold it)
Right before I sold it...
Clicking noise is a leak in the balancing tube (welded day after this
video) Some sloppy shifts due to slack in the rear end and un-adjusted
clutch with cracked clutch arm bracket.
I loved/love this car! So much fun to drive...

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

Junkyard Turbo Swap! Chevy-Powered 1971 Datsun 240Z Autocross Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 26
What do you get when you cross a rusted 1971 Datsun 240Z with a Chevy 4.3L
V6 and a turbo from a Ford Power Stroke
Diesel? The Rotsun! During Roadkill Episode 25, Freiburger and Finnegan
revived the Rotsun expecting it to dominate in the 9-car autocross showdown
of previous Roadkill project cars. It also needed to beat a 2014 Kia Rio 5,
but failed to do so with the Rotsun shamefully breaking down before
completing a decent lap. So in this episode: revenge. After swapping in the
mismatched turbo and making nearly 400
rear-wheel horsepower, the guys head to
the autocross at the Goodguys 5th Spring Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona
and mingle with fans on their way to a rematch with that dastardly Kia.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
