Triple Weber DCOE's Launch
An old clip of my race prepped high compression L28, during testing with my
45mm DCOE's After a summer of tuning, I determined that my set of 40mm
DCOE's were the best match, and the car was 3 tenths of a second quicker
0-60 with them.
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

1971 Datsun 240Z Dual SU Powered 2.9L Screaming down the Interstate
This is my "slightly" Modified 71 240Z with bored out Dual SU's and a
2.9LThis Z has run a best time of 12.804 @ 107.26 mph at Rockingham Dragway
on normal street tires. even though it is LOUD, the Exhaust is VERY RESTRICTIVE as it was done with
crush bends instead of Mandrel bends so when I'm at the track I drop the Exhaust with one hanger bolt at the back
of the car and slide it all out in one piece. This run was done with a 3.54
rear end I have 4.11 in it now.
My 240z on the dyno at Z bash
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

Starring Gee-Force Z spider :)
1973 Datsun 240Z, Bahrain
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...
Datsun 280Z w/ L28 3.1L Stroker and Triple Webers
Here is a short video of the Z starting. Just got the idle working right
tonight where before it wouldn't idle down. Throttle response is good
though it goes lean. I have new jets coming to solve that issue.
Sorry for the crappy video. Can't find the cable I needed and so I had to
use some 3rd party app to rip it. For whatever reason, it didn't do
240z vs Rx7
This was the third session of the day in HPDE3 on April 25, 2010. We saw
this Rx7 zipping around all weekend and finally caught up with it. Both
drivers were testing their limits and it was quite exciting being in the
car and experiencing this "battle" firsthand. Gee-Force Z spider got a good
workout too. Until next time little blue Rx7!
