That's a great extra benefit! I like those opportunities that allow me more utility in the future.

Any LA/SoCal dwellers are welcome to come see me finish, and maybe punch me in the face afterwards

I don't want to see you finish. No offense.

Back from the Touge.

The car, a 1992 Nissan 300ZX (Z32), accepted because the model debuted in 1989:

The drivers:
While I didn't have time to get a costume together, my co-driver put on his best Bret Michaels.

Z32 and 50th Anniversary Edition Z31 300ZX, a car that definitely had me beat in the Xzibit sense of "hey bro, we heard you like louvers" department.

The setting:
Mostly North on Mulholland and in the Malibu canyon.

RE: Attention whore thread
Only issue I had was a lean misfire at speed (from about 65 MPH on up). I theorized that it could have something to do with turbulent air hitting the mass airflow sensor, based on the readings of my wideband O2 sensor and the fact that it didn't happen when we were in the lee of a larger object (like say a semi truck).

So, we stopped in Kingman, AZ and did a little modification:

I bought a small flower pot, some fender washers, and a 1/4-20 nut at the Home Depot to make a shroud for the air filter. It stopped the sporadic lean condition and we could drive as fast as we wanted, when we wanted to.

It's quite comfortable.

New bits o' shiny: a Holley red fuel pump, a fuel pressure regulator, a pressure gauge, and NPT to AN adapters for the whole shebang.

Gonna have to go back and get a 90° fitting for the bottom of the FPR, a fuel filter, and a couple compression fittings to adapt AN to the existing 8mm hard lines, and of course, whatever fittings will need to go to the carbs.

Got some velocity stacks coming from eBay and the Czech republic, maybe next week, maybe December, lol.

RE: Attention whore thread
I bought a second identical GPU for my system from ebay for Crossfire, and am just waiting for it to come in. Moments after making the purchase I had discovered that my PSU is quite unlikely to safely handle the load, so I'll probably order a new one once the GPU comes in and I confirm it runs perfectly by itself.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

Why are you messing up Jeh's car thread with your bit of computer nonsense. I think there is a forum for that.
