Our friend Patrick Chio continues to race in the US Touring Car Championship (USTCC) with his Nissan 350z that we’ve helped prepare. The events are televised on Final Drive TV with some great commentary and white-knuckle action! Check out Patrick’s report from the last three events here:
Attention Skyline and GT-R owners! The Skyline Syndicate in conjunction with NCRC are hosting R’s Day: a unique opportunity to drive your Skyline with 30 other Skylines on the world famous Laguna Seca Raceway!
In 2011, the engine inside the “Gimlet” was tired. The owner, Kevin, wanted to keep the 2.4L block that came with his 240z so we built a 2.7L using his existing block. This is a Rebello specialty for customers that want to keep their L24 block.
The engine/transmission were removed and prepped:
We installed a JWT aluminum flywheel and HD clutch:
Engine re-assembly time!
The triple Webers were re-jetted for the 2.7L:
A new tach tach adaptor so his tachometer would work with new ignition items like the MSD box:
We bring up this build from 2011 because we recently saw Kevin for the first time and in the 5 years that’s elapsed he put 3500 miles on the Z. C’mon Kev, you gotta Enjoy The Ride and put some real miles on her! Here is the 2.7L all buttoned up and back in the Gimlet:
This time we refreshed the clutch hydraulics, fixed a couple of things in the suspension and performed an alignment. Long Live The Z!
We had a very impressive turnout of ZCG customers and friends at the Wednesday Night Fun drags 8/3! Rob was running his 300zx Twin-Turbo and despite very warm temps pulled a 11.5 @ 125mph with a 1.8 60-ft.
