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 ;)
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.
3.1L 240Z triple weber carb tuning (w/ new Stahl headers)
A collection of short clips / butt Dyno runs while tuning the
triple Webers on my 3.1L 240Z. Open Exhaust. Unfortunately, I didn't have the
benefit of an O2 sensor / AFR. All in all, I was pretty pleased with the
final results, the new headers have really opened up the head's flow
potential. Sounds good, too! :)
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 :)
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...
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!
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 ;-)
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.
240Z 3.1L Bore L28 Triple Carb Dyno Run --- 181.7rwhp
http://www.zsport.com -- Datsun 240Z with 3.1L Bore L28 Triple Carbs on our
Dynapack System at Z Sport Racing. Also has good sized SSR Longchamp
wheels, those are hard to come by in wider sizes with negative offsets!
Ultramotive Triple Weber VG30 240SX
Me firing and revving Ken's road race car. :O) This is a stock VG30ET long
block from a wrecking yard! It has a triple plate 5" clutch so it revs
pretty quick even with the low compression ratio. The rattling noise is the
dog ring gearbox. These are 40mm Webers on a one-off intake built by Barry
Gerolamy. I built the wet sump oil pan. The 'real' motor is being built and
will be an all-out 15:1 race engine. When it's completed and installed I'll
shoot another video. There are stills of this car and some of it's hardware
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:
265 Hemi Six Dyno Tests @ COME Racing - Triple Webers and Megasquirt
Brett, Sam, Ads and Shane Dynotest Bretts 265 Chrysler
Valiant Hemi Six Cylinder engine with a Custom Megasquirt Fuel Injection
& Crank Fired Coilpack Ignition system on Sam's Engine Dyno.
It made about 300 Hp (Ok, 297) with lots more tuning to do in the car, but
ran very well with even the limited amount of tuning time we had on the Dyno. Tested with the
Weber Carbs as a Baseline, then the Megasquirt Injection to compare. The
O2 Based AutoTune function is Great ! We had it dialled in to the Ballpark
Map with about 10 minutes work.... Later in the car.. we will "engage" the
Nitrous System ! :)
Looking Forward to getting it in the Charger and having some more time to
