New member from UK - 240z RB build

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I registered here a while ago and often come to this place for help via the search function when I get stuck.


I've got an old '72 Datsun 240z with an RB25DET swap. I bought it with the engine already installed, and It runs nicely. I've tried to do as much of the maitenance work as I can myself, but I'm by no means an expert. Thought I'd introduce myself finally. It's currently stock with the intentions of getting it relaible and "fun", around 350-400hp should be enough (it weighs in at just under a tonne)


Currently I'm trying to get the rocker head off as I've got a leaky cam cover seal. Whilst there I'd like to clean up the covers and give them a paint - I've considered getting some 26 covers, but on further thoughts I should probably save that money for something a little higher on the priority list (of which there are many!)

This is great! Im doing the conversion to my 260z as we speak

one thing that would be fairly cheap and change the look of the engine bay would be a forward facing manifold
