2 BAD A$$ Datsun 240Z's [S30 Fairlady-Z]
Although I would take any of these, all I gotta say is sign me up for the
white one!! Deep dish meshes get me every time!!
Eat your heart out Jay Leno ;-)
Rocky Auto Japan 30 Carbon Z
This is the RB30 powered "Carbon Z" built by Rocky Auto Japan.
I edited out most of the interviews and tried to keep it car-porn only.
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
I've posted some additional details here:

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

A little vid of my FairladyZ after installing the triple Mikuni Carbs
40phh. She is a 1973 240z with an L28, ported E88 head, Monza Headers,
Shnider Cam, Custom Exhaust and MSD
ignition. It's an ongoing project and more goodies on their way ;)
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...

1972 Fairlady 240 Z
Lance Lambert from The Vintage Vehicle Show visits the Datsun Heritage
Museum in Murrieta, California. Here he looks at a 1972 Fairlady 240Z (same
as Datsun 240Z outside the U.S.) with the museum's director, Fred Jordan,
who was also the manager of the first Datsun dealership in the United
The late Fred Jordan, who started up this Datsun Museum, gave erroneous
information as has been stated here a multitude of times. The museum has
closed. We keep the video up so people can view the car. The correct info
on the car has been posted numerous times here. Please don't waste our time
telling us the info is incorrect; instead we welcome your comments about
the car and any correct information you wish to provide.
360HP STAR ROAD DATSUN FAIRLADY S30Z WALKAROUND
Come and take a closer look at Star Road's insane L28 powered S30Z Fairlady
that is literally the perfect mix of both the old and new schools. I walk
you around the car, showing you the immense amounts of detail that have
gone into it. It is currently developing a screaming naturally aspirated
360hp, revs to 8000rpm and includes one of the most impressive engine bays
you will ever see including a special custom carburettor/injection setup
that is monitored by MoTec engine management and a full Defi system.
You would struggle to find a better modern take on a classic like the
Fairlady anywhere else on the planet.

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
