Gentlemen, i have a serious complaint regarding the hybrid zed forum.
having read all the posts in this forum, i now find myself(indeed i called MJP yesterday to discuss options) with a dire need to fit a SBC to my Kaminari.
this comes directly as a result of reading the excellent threads in here.
despite having only to fit the turbo, adj pop off valve & msd ignition, i'm now looking at flogging off the L28 & all the "nice " bits & finding (with a little help from you lot) a smog motor to play with.
i hope you are all satisfied with yourselves.

Congratulations!! :D That is one giant step into the realm of being a fully fledged Hybrid Z nut and with a paint job to scare the purists it just has to be done!

OI YOU CAN'T DO THAT TO A Z!!! WHY WOULD YOU GO AND....

Oh I won't pretend I'm a purist, it's a sick obsession but there isn't a cure that I've heard of, most people just grow beards... strange but true.

Get the catalogue from http://www.sdpc2000.com/ (Scoggin Dickey) sent to you, hours of drooling!

A Zed with a bike engine would be different :D

A Z with two bike engines would be even more different....

A double Hayabusa sounds cool http://img.photobucket.com/albums/0703/900ss/Smilies/respecta.gif




















Apart from it sounding like a Chocolate bar http://img.photobucket.com/albums/0703/900ss/Smilies/doh.gif http://img.photobucket.com/albums/0703/900ss/Smilies/laugh.gif

Err guys, i'm all for hybrids, but enough is enough.

i love my bike & couldnt think of a worse fate than sticking two 1100 cc bike engines in a ZX.

something like those caterham jobbies then ok, but in a kaminari?

nooooooooooooooooooooooo!

besides, you lot obviously dont ride bikes, have you any idea how much bits are for bike related projects?

you could build a decent small block for the price of 1 bike engine i'm sure.

thanks for that Gav, if i had 2.5 sitting around i might be tempted.
i'm more into building my own motor & keeping away from the "money pit" syndrome if i can.
you know a few quid here, a grand there:rolleyes:
also, ive seen over the years engines change to a total dependancy on chips, brains etc, this really scares me as i've never been able to get my head around it all.
so a simple motor with a carb, & points even i can understand.

Yup sounds like V8 into Z is the way to go, soon there will be more V8 Hybrids around than L series ones much faster on all tracks and sounding so much better.......roll on 2006, maybe we will have to form a Hybrid Z club so as not to wind the L series boys up too much.......hehehehehehehehe

Say it's not so! You'll ruin the design intent, ruin the character of the perfect sports car! :eek::rolleyes:

Don't put that American V8 in there, you'll be no better than an American Red Neck with a Camaro! :rolleyes:

Glad to see another V8 Z in progress :cool:
