Dale has been busy.

Now that the red Zed is finally all fixed and running, we can finally move onto this progrect that stalled a year or so ago. Smile

Work started a week or so ago, just waiting for a delivery of few more parts.

Dale had some space in his workshop



You guys might remember the car



YUP needs something



First Need some shiny parts and gaskets (even though Nissan does not bother) and specially modified water pipe that we do on all the Zed engines now.



And some parts from Concept Z Perf



And some anodised parts and new fancy wastegate actuators (adjustable spring dual port)



Lots of connectors and the cams specs we used to dial in the fancy cams- any guesses?



Some goodies from Brett Dempsey (really nice engine mounts) which allows the intake pipes from the turbos to clear without modifying the engine mounts.



Some new covers



Cant get the bottom cover any more so paint the old one.



Some more goodies from BDE (VTC gears, yes you can use VCT gears with aftermarket solid cams, but you do need to remove the plugs from them that they put in. New VCT activators as they flog out with age and leak junk out.



Lin cam and dialed in the cams but forgot to take another photo. He looks the same as he did in the Red Z photo Smile

Any questions just ask

Plumbing water and oil to the turbos is nearly finished and then trial fittment - cross fingers!!
