  1. 200 to 225 for the Fox Mustang. 250 to 300 for the 93 Cobra. 95 cobra 300 to 325. 10 wins for the Miata, 6 for the E30 and 4 for the Cobra’s. Go figure why there was an increase. Indeed. Read below. I think I found some of the 5 laps. If our new socialist governments ever release us from involuntary lock down we will get your race in. I am in conversation with Tech trying to get a clear reason for the increases as we speak. I will fill you in soon. Hopefully this new administration will not practice the same favoritism as the previous crew. I think we may have a sporting chance.

  3. This is awesome. What transmission are you using for the J30? Is this the J30A1? The J35A1 works for the 280zx swap weight but couldn't figure out a rwd conversion. Also don't know how to get more power, no aftermarket. Surprised you didn't loose any weight? What J32 works in the swap? Why not a K? 220whp from a 200hp with headers and intake. Cost? As for the Z transmission I am using a KA24 tranny with L28 bellhousing, super easy and cheap. I destroyed 3 Z transmissions (1 4spd and 2 5spd). Your car looks very cool, is it fast?

  4. I don't know why more people don't look at the J30 swap. (200hp) 350 lbs. This car won 4 races in a row in 2017. It had 456 points. Car was 2250 lbs. The weak link was the stock Z trans, and it's getting harder to find one that's not already worn out. I'm working on an adapter to go to a T5 Borg Warner. And the next build will be a Z32 J32 because the West Coast series has some speed creep and the J30 is no longer competitive. Didn't save any weight going from the stock L28 to the J30 even though it went from iron block to alum block, but it got the weight back to where the car was 50/50. These engines are all over the salvage yards including PickandPull. CarPart shows dozens for $100. All the Honda V6 cars in the early 2000's had auto trans failure but the engines last forever. It totally changed the dynamics of the 280Z, no more messing with the engine between races and a ton of torque. The L28 would need an oil change every race and it would be black, but the J30 would go 2 races easy. 8 races and all it ever needed was an oil change. Of all the aluminum Japanese V6's of the era the J30 was the smallest, lightest and cheapest. It's 4" narrower than any of them because it's the only SOHC. And Honda has the valve train engineering to make the SOHC just as good as a DOHC.

  6. A lot of measuring, a couple of pieces of wood, very thin cut off wheel and a few hours and this is the result. Hint practice on scrap metal.

  8. I didn't take it wrong i took it as you meant were good. Just pointing out its going to be a convoluted mess if we got to do it twice and people should know up front rather than after what's expected. I'm fine with dealing with it in impound, just hope we are fortunate enough to make it there. Garage 13 will be serving cold beer out of a cooler all weekend everyone's invited to open the bottles on the side of our car and talk crap.
