  1. Rust was quite extensive hey - guess previous owners must have used through winter? That’s a clean looking zed I can see in the background. Belong to anyone on the forum? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Cheers mate and oh that’s interesting. Yes they’re definitely the go to guys nowadays and importantly they’re PowerZed approved and recommended! They sorted out cars which turbonoz messed up like Bigh’s grey widebody. They’ve got raving reviews throughout the Jap car community, so relieved to have found a top notch tuner tbh.

  3. Honestly can’t wait to have some decent anchors on all 4 corners! They will definitely look the business too [emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. A bit of a surprise but when Jim was replacing the rear main seal and sump seals, obviously the gearbox has to come off, and when doing so, he noticed the RPS max street clutch and Speciality Z flywheel I fitted early June last year was 2/3 worn through already! I think I may have counted a lot of motorway driving as ‘running in’ miles, whereas it should be town driving miles where they get a lot of use. Those traffic light launches therefore came a bit too early! Anyway lesson painfully learnt! Replacement clutch and flywheel re-build kit bought and awaiting fitment at Jims along with the bra
  5. Onto a historic issue with this car – the cold start rough idle and the ECU/Nistune (a lot of detail to this so I’ll keep it as short as possible!!). When I came to collect the car, Jim let me know he had real trouble setting up the timing after the fitment of the new CAS. He had spoken to Protuner (who previously tuned the car on the new 740cc injectors) and it turns out that they had to retard the timing quite a bit (car didn’t like the stock 15 degrees BTDC timing set up). The previous owner posted on the forum about the issues. In short, some of the comments from the club guru’s poin
  6. The new K-Sports at this point seemed like a bloody expensive mistake, but hey, you can’t win them all. I’ll put them up for sale soon. I’ve managed to sell the old faulty K-Sport’s already, and for a decent sum. With the sale of the stock rear brakes that are popular with the Nissan 200sx’s, I should be made whole, so not too shabby in the end.
  7. At PowerZed I had various works completed as mentioned earlier in the thread but just a quick refresher here; the new OEM wiring loom, series 2 CAS, new Knock sensor and sub-harness, new fuel damper, fuel pressure regulator and fuel filter. I had a minor engine oil leak which was resolved. It ended up being the rear sump seal. My rear main seal was done only 3-4 years ago – Z1 sell a 2-piece kit with the rear main seal and rear sump seal, so well worth doing both in one hit - link: https://www.z1motorsports.com/piston-crankshaft-and-flywheel/nissan/300zx-z32-rear-main-seal-kit-pcs-p-1898
  8. A long overdue update… Around the New Year, the front K-Sport callipers were causing the front end to move around at motorway speeds – felt like sticky callipers on one side. I put this down to lack of use over the previous few months and the fact they’re a track brake kit, around 11 years old, having been used through rain and road dirt – apparently their seals aren’t the best for road/wet road usage long-term. We tried cleaning them out which helped a little, but the issue didn’t go away really. Rather than mess around finding a shop to rebuild them, with the chance of paying ar
  9. I’ve looked into this, as I plan to do the same. From all my research including lots of peoples reviews, I can see the Z-Spec one is far superior, so I’d defiantly go with that one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. That was a good day indeed! Unfortunately the car has got some issues, so won’t be able to drive enthusiastically until the end of August [emoji19]. Update to follow on project thread soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Having seen this car in person and driven behind it down country roads for a good couple hours, I can say that this example pulls very strongly and without fault. The bodywork element is an ongoing project as noted. Overall this Zed is as described. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Ah ha, something else I didn’t know. Sounds like a solid plan [emoji1417].
  13. Interesting, didn't know they updated these switches. On another note, you've got to replace those faded door handles with the metal Terrano II handles - will give a premium solid feel and finish it off nicely.
  14. The TE37 style suits most Jap cars IMO. I think that bronze colour of the wheels really goes with the purple paint, so if you prefer five spokes, how about something similar like the Rota Gtr wheels? which can also be had in that bronze. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Glad to hear she started right back up. One of my favourite colours that purple, even when dirty, still got a deep sparkle to it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
