Cars for sale / Re: 1978 Datsun 280z. Turbo, Holley, Clean

Might want to take this thread down since the car is no longer for sale.  :scratch:

Did you end up getting within a few thousand of your asking price? Just curious since its one of the higher priced FC's ive seen for sale and it sold pretty quick.

Yep! I was asking $17,000 and it sold for a few thousand less. Hope it helps raise the value of swapped FC's.

Car is sold! Will be sad to see it go  :(

Just wanted to chim in.

i have seen this car at the local race track. its one of the cleanest ive seen in person.

glws :lurk:

Thanks a lot for the compliment!

This is a clean FC, I am just as OCD as the owner and I catch myself looking at this thing and drooling. I have always loved red FC's with S5 tail lights.

Great Car and asking price, I wouldn't sell my FC for any less and this car has a little extra goodies that mine lacks.

Bump for a nice RX! :drive: 

Then that means we drool over each-others  :D. I'm a huge fan of your FC and a bit jealous.

THREAD UPDATE: I went ahead and made my parts list and excel spreadsheet public. Prices listed are MSRP and do not represent actual cost. It does however give a detailed look into what has been done to the car. Also added pictures taken from this past weekend.

Pictures taken this past weekend -

Very clean car.  What are your plans for a replacement.

Thanks all! I'll likely replace it with a C6Z, but not right away.  :popcorn:

This is purely a testing waters thread. I have had numerous individuals interested in wanting to buy this car. I have been on the fence since completing the build over the winter and have decided to gauge some interest.

NoRotors build thread - http://www.norotors.com/index.php?topic=21119.0

About the car: This is a LS1 swapped 1990 Mazda RX7 (FC) done right. No corners were cut and this car holds it's own on the strip and street. It is a pure monster and was designed and put together to hurt feelings on the street. I have received tons of compliments on outings and to local car events. I can honestly say this car gets a ton of attention at the local Cars and Coffee meets.

The car is a mild build. The heads are 243's with magic done by Brett Land at LandSpeed Development. They have a stage 3 port and polish, 5 angle, Ferrera intake valves, Manley exhaust valves, BTR springs and titanium retainers. These are the best ported 243's you can get using a stock bottom end LS motor. I will provide the spec sheet to anyone who is seriously interested in the car. There is $3500 in the heads alone. The cam is a custom grind COMP cam spec'ed for all motor and nitrous power and spec'ed by Brett Land himself. Brand new LS7 lifters were installed along with a custom set of .105 wall chromoly pushrods from Trend Performance in Detroit. All new OEM gaskets were used when installing the heads.

I wanted to be able to launch the car hard at the track. Thus, an 8.8 setup was installed using the Ronin 8.8 kit. The differential is out of a 2004 Ford Explorer and was completely rebuilt using OEM Ford parts by a Master Ford Technician. GT500 clutch packs were used during the rebuild. Gear ratio is 3.73. The road to a bullet proof rear end did not stop there. A set of Drive Shaft Shop Pro Level axles and 103mm Porsche hubs were installed to compliment the rear end setup. The driveshaft is a custom aluminum 3inch shaft with 1310 u-joints built by a shop here in Indianapolis. There's at least $5000 in the rear end setup alone.

The car has been driven the way it was meant to be driven. It has seen a handful of street pulls along with a few outings to the track. This car is easily a 140 car at the track and the street with the proper driver. I have been able to pull off a best ET of 10.6 and a best MPH of 135 on a 150 shot of nitrous / pump gas with low bottle pressure and bad shifts. On motor, the car has gone 11.1 @ 127, again on pump gas. Based on the power and time slips, this car has the capability to run high 9's around 140 on the bottle.

The car was tuned by Timmy Two Stage from Sound Performance in Chicago. He is a well known reputable tuner and tuned the car well.

Lets dive into what has been done to get the car where it is today.

Mileage is unknown on the chassis, but should be around 130k miles. There is absolutely zero rust on the body or chassis. This FC is in the top percentile of FC's on the road today without any rust or corrosion on the body. For a 25 year old car, this is a excellent example of an RX7. If you wanted to build this type of FC today, with the same parts used, you would be looking at $24,000-$26,000. Only the best parts were used.

Some con's about the car:
This is a 25 year old car. The body is in great shape and so is the paint. The only area that needs attention, would be the interior. I am an extremely OCD person though and to most, this car is fine the way it is. From the dash to the cargo bins, the interior is pretty much complete. The rear hatch area is semi-complete, and I do have the pieces to complete it. The car is not perfect and is meant to be a full out race car.

The car is ready to be taken to the next level and I am on the fence about taking it to that level.

My price to let the car go, would be $17,000. Of course, anything is negotiable.

The best method of contact to reach me would be a message on here, or a call/text to my mobile - 317.36two.five754

Good work.  Bet he was not expecting that with so much coin under his hood!

What front lip is that?

Thanks! You could tell he was a little upset. He didn't want to run again after I offered.  :D

Shine Auto carbon front lip.

What's your LS1 setup to make 600whp on only a 150 shot?

Completely stock LS1 bottom end, big port CNC'ed Stage 3-R 243's by Brett (LandSpeed Development), custom spec'ed NA/Nitrous cam by Brett as well. Supporting bolt-on's and pump gas.

« on: April 28, 2015, 09:31:11 AM »
no idea what's best because it's the only one I've ever used, but I have zero complaints about the aeromotive 340.
bolt-in, reliable, and as quiet as a factory pump.

Thanks for your input! I went ahead and ordered an Aeromotive 340 Stealth.

General Tech / (FC) Best Drop In Fuel Pump?
« on: April 24, 2015, 09:59:52 AM »
The current Supra fuel pump in the 7 is on its last legs. From personal experiences, what is the best drop in factory replacement fuel pump out there?
I've been looking at the following (in no particular order):
- Aeromotive 340 Stealth
- Walbro 450
- Bosch 044
- DW300

Stock FC lines are being used along with a C4 regulator. Any input is appreciated!

Nice runs. Your car is similar to the rxvette right?

The more i see FCs, the more i like them

Thanks - it is actually quite similar to RXVette's setup. Except his is an auto car.
