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
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:

Triple 40PHH Mikuni carb's on Nissan / Datsun L28
These are my triple 40PHH Mikuni carby's that are for sale to suit a
Nissan/Datsun L series 6 cyl.
They have been complety stripped, cleaned and rebuilt. Have custom made
Ø36mm chokes and come with standard Ø32mm ones too.
The Cannon manifold has been ported to optimise flow.
Bolt on upgrade!!! Awesome bit of kit ;-)
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.
Mustangs for lunch
240z (L28 Triple Mikuni 5 spd) @ Sebring: NASA HPDE3, second session of the
day on June 20, 2009.
Starring Gee-Force Z spider :)
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!
