Re: Project Lex

No big updates. But I did get a complete new driveshaft made to fit perfectly with my exact setup, so no more adapters or anything like that. Made from heavy duty wall .100" DOM with the CD009 slip yoke on front, Ford 8.8" Flange on the rear, and 1350 U-Joints. Fitment was spot on, and price wasn't bad ($420). TUrn around time was about a week from local shop AA Drive Line in Anoka. Same place that did the subframe bushing work for me a few years back. So good experience both times!

Re: Project Lex

That looks like very nice work. Is it any lighter than what you had before?

Re: Project Lex

No, it's similar weight. I'd like to get something lighter, but for now just sticking with steel since it's much more affordable.

Got my new DBW kit in the mail. No more throttle cable for 2018! The TB is an OEM (refurb) 350z 3" TB.

Re: Project Lex

Work has started on the new motor. Couple things interesting worth noting.

Some Factory 2JZ-GE VVTi measurements he took:
- Head chamber volume 41cc
- Piston volume 9.5cc (he cc'd a set of GE non-VVTi pistons as well with a value of 8cc)
-Piston / Deck clearance 0.003" popping out of the deck (he temp installed a set of GE non-VVTi pistons/rods as well with same measurement)
- Head step down recess is 0.028"

All good info to help me decide exactly what we do with the build as far as how much we deck the head, what head gasket to run, etc.

My general advice is to always leave as much meat as possible. Machine all surfaces the least amount possible to achieve the surface finish or trueness you want. Don't machine just to machine if the surface is good as is.

Achieve your other goals with hg thickness, rod length, piston design etc.

This is the safest route long term.

Re: Project Lex

No ideas on old motor yet.

Momin yeah a lot of these measurements are basically going to help me figure out which HG to use.
