hey,

thought i'd start a thread for my recently aquired zed.

dont have any pics since ive owned it, but i have some from when the previous owner had it.



more pics can be found at http://s35.photobucket.com/albums/d172/holdencamirasle/teh%20zed/

plans (in order):
- turbo conversion.
- manual conversion.
- 250mm z32 xtreme clutch & flywheel.
- nistune.
- carpc.
- lsd.
- carpc setup.
- s13 coilover swap OR aurora springs/bilstein shocks.
- 0deg rear camber, 1.5deg front camber.
- polyurethane bushes/mounts/etc.
- respray, either red or silver. chassis will stay as is.
- hid conversion, driving lights, fog lights.
- 5 stud conversion.
- r33 gts-t skyline brakes all round.
- RB74 brake pads, decent brake fluid.
- r33 gtr skyline stock wheels (17x9 +30 5x114.3).
- braided hoses (clutch, brake, breather, radiator, etc).
- 2.5" or 3" mandrel bent exhaust.
- mandrel bent exhaust manifold.
- 2.5" mandrel bent intake piping.
- heat-shielded k&n pod filter.
- fmic.
- head porting.
- lightweight oversized valves
- motorsport auto cams.
- 60mm TB.
- gutted & ported stock intake manifold.
- heatwrap on the full exhaust & intake.
- some panels replaced with carbon fiber items (make a mould using stock panels, maybe run a group buy if theres enough interest?)
- remove side strips & randomly placed reflector thats held on with silicone and covering up a hole in the left front fender lol.
- recaro-copy seats with a lower seating position.
- darkest legal tint. even darker for the t-tops cos afaik theres no laws on how dark they can go.
- smooth over the antenna hole. replace with internal antenna.

thats all i can think of for now. a non-vg engine swap is also on the cards..

cheers,
sean.

Resisting the temptation to part it out lol, so much dodgyness. I'm sure alot of people wouldnt care about things like this after a respray and fixed engine, but i do. lol.

That manual na in "vgc" in the quokka is becoming so tempting, someone give me 2k for my car so i can afford it lol.

Oh well, I guess i'm just going to have to live with a jack-fucked bog-filled chassis lol.

I got a complete head gasket set from ebay USA for around $60.

Get the Stone brand gaskets. Aparently they make the Z31 gaskets for nissan, now nissan dont make them anymore. The ones you get from nissan are rebranded stone ones aparently.

Ahh cool, thanks.

I'm begining to think I should just try get an importer to find me a z31 turbo manual halfcut with a good condition black dash lol. My n/a engine has been nothing but trouble since ive had it.

Now, if only the bank would call me back about the job.. Ahh well, going to try a local auto1 that has a "staff wanted" sign lol.

Need a job, because job = money, and money = car stuff, lol.

out of curiosity - how much does everyone think i'd get for it? how about after a spray can respray so its one tone of red all over? minus the front kaminari bumper? what about with 14" stockers from an r31 skyline? lol.

yeah, some look a bit dodgy, but intake manifold gasket is definately leaking so i think thats the main problem now. fixed some more random shit on it since last post too.

cheers for the heads up in the ebay thread Smile

Dude you stole my car! Very Happy
Looks exactly like Mine. It has rust in the side quarter window just the same, and my vent has fallen out.

So whats the plan? You going to fix up the turbo car and sell the na? Which ones got the better body?

Might be less hassle getting the turbo car legal than having to get the na legally converted to turbo, if you want no hassle with the cops that is.

Yeah, i've thought about doing that, but it shouldn't take much to get the na legally turbo either. Don't really like the idea of re-regoing it, seeing as i have no paperwork (apart from auction papers, but they don't have the previous owners details, or many car details, on them. So I don't think they will accept that).

Another plus for the na, it's an 84 model, so theres no legal need for a cat.

The bodies are about the same. The turbo is fairly rusted, but the na looks like it was rusted at one stage too. Although it looks like it's been sanded back and bogged up by a previous owner somewhere along the line.

Haha, I was going to use the turbo bumper for the lip and sell my kaminari front skirt from the 84 to Mitch, but under that front skirt theres a normal 84 n/a bumper if you want that? lol.

hmm..

- the fucked parts of the NA make me want to build the turbo up.
- the lack of paperwork, lack of rego, and fucked bits on the turbo (still less than the NA) makes me want to not build it up.
- the automatic transmission on them both makes me want to go out and find a really clean z31 with a manual transmission (NA is preferable for cost reasons) and use that as a base.

on a good note, the turbo has pretty tight suspension..

I like that front lip. I wonder how hard it would be to take a mold off that front lip and reproduce it. I've been wanting to have a go at some fibreglass work.

Similar look to this one, which would be my first choice, but impossible to find I bet.

I dont think paperwork is a big issue, since the car is unlicenced. Maybe call up the licencing department and see what the deal is, before making any decisions.

I once bought an abandoned madza 808 coupe (think RX-3 but with a 1600 engine). from Wanneroo council, and the only paperwork I had was the receipt for the $15 that the car cost me. Fixed it up, and got it over the pits no problems.

ahh ok, i assumed i would need something of the previous owners paperwork as proof, like we were told we needed for the trailer and my first r31 that i was going to fix up. if auction paperwork is sufficient then i only have the other problems to overcome lol.
