I love a good blast cabinet ... looking good. Here’s that blue again ...
VERY VERY similar to the one I have used
Managed to pick up a set of carbon trumpets ready for my TBIm install and found a 45mm Jenvey TB for mock up (need two more if anyone has any...)
Just slowly amassing parts and hopefully after I return from holiday in September I can slowly start progressing more with this.. the house renovation is currently taking most of my time up and I don't have any spare money for this!
It's all progress even if its slow and steady, life gets in the way but keep it up
Looking forward to hearing more when time and funds allow
FAJs are much cheaper, i have some. But I haven't fitted them yet so can't prove they're as good, but on the other hand, it's a pair of 45 mm tubes at a given spacing with a hole for injectors to squirt into. How hard can it be?
I’ve read a few issues with the cheap Chinese ones but I’m sure out of the thousands they’ve sold it’s probably a small percentage.
I paid 125 quid for this one and not a LOT for some stunning carbon trumpets...
If I buy two brand new ones it’ll still owe me less than 600 for Jenvey with carbon intakes so not too bad. Just need to have a backing plate and filter cover laid up...
Right so now I have finished sorting out a friends Z I can move forward a little with this - although house work still taking priority.
I have acquired a few more bits... Including a full set of the above trumpets but they may be too long to fit in the bay depending on manifold length (so on the look out for a short runner if anyone has one?)
Genuine Watanabe 15's 7.5J width and 0 offset. Always wanted Watanabe wheels but these came up for a daft price and I jumped at them.
Also picked up all the venting for the rear tailgate.
Hopefully Ill start prepping the body perhaps this weekend after having a tidy up - I am going to alter my rotisserie slightly so it makes it easier to move around as its a little too high to work on the top half but great to work on the underside.
Wheels look lovely, although IMO Watanabe prices are always daft!
If I said I got them for under £300 would you say that was daft?!
Wow. If you come across another set at that price, I'll give you a 10% finders fee
That's a bargaintastic price for The Real Thing, but are you sure they are actually zero offset? They look a bit more like positive offset for a 7.5j to me.
For comparison, here's a pair of 'B' type in 7j x 14":
You can get a narrower manifold for thr TBs I’ll measure mine when I get the Zed back if you want,you can put a decent size air box on if that’s the way you are going
Sorry Albrecht, I’ve posted 0 offset but they are positive. +8.5 et
Identical to these:
Perfect fitment for Datsun 510 !
I did consider these wheels a couple of months ago but passed due to the offset not being my taste. They were a good price though and we do all have different taste's.
I was quite happy to have a little more arch clearance than on my 0 offset XXR's previously. I want to run this car on coilovers and a little lower so anything to stop rubbing helps.
Yeah, it is annoying having to be conscious about rubbing all the time. Especially on the track where your pushing to the limits.
