Will have to try and get some decent pics of her :zlove:
Did a small night time shoot tonight to try and get some decent pictures.
Long overdue update for my rebuild is that the car has been off the road for the past year.
It lost compression on a cylinder whilst on the dyno, exhaust valve stuck open and a couple of them tapped the top of the pistons, so the heads came off to have new valves put in, during this it was found there was some softness in the heads and a deviation in the camshaft tunnel, so the heads from my old engine will be used instead. Hoping that it will progress quickly in the next month or so.
Great looking Z.
The Zed went back for a dyno tune last week and picked up about 40rwkw compared to the tune from april this year, it's being held back now due to a fuel supply issue, once that is sorted then it will be tuned again to see what it can do.
Some photos from the last few days.
looking fantastic, congrats!
very nice work , car will be crazy once all done , keep up the good work , my only thing would be to change those turbos to the newer gtx/w and also go up in size 100% ill be running precision turbos my self , but yeah, the rest is great this engine should see some good power , would be great to drive ,
either way great job , good on you
WOW that bottom photo is 10/10 ,
Dyno graph and video from a Dyno day power run the other month, was running a blended tank of fuel 98/e85 and different dyno produced a 60rwkw drop in power
Great looking zed and great results on the dyno.
A large part of the second result could just be the settings on the dyno dynamics dyno. They really should remove the 'Shoot out mode' feature as most tuners have no idea what it was put there for in the first place.
